Default location RRS feed

  • Question

  •  A few months back, I looked for a friend's address who lives in the UAE.  Since then, every time I start Bing Maps it defaults to the UAE instead of my home location.  Anyone know how to reset it?  I have been looking and looking but no luck.  I have set the Location to my local area but it did nothing.

    Just another frustration with Microsoft!

  • I'm assuming this is on the Bing Maps consumer site and has nothing to do with the Bing Maps Development API's (what these forums are for). If that is the case I suspect the issue is that your browser setting is for the UAE. To correct this go to http://bing.com/maps/ and click on the "gear" icon in the top right corner of the page. Under location select the change country/region link. Select your default country of choice. This is a cross Bing setting and not a Bing Maps specific thing.
