Bing Maps Adds ‘AJAX V7 Control, Redesigned Left-rail and Broader Access to Map Apps & StreetSide’

Bing Maps announce the following additions and changes:

  • AJAX V7 Control provides consumers improved browsing performance, updated navigation controls, enhanced Bird’s eye and optimization for mobile. You’ll notice the different position for navigation and map layer options. Also, Bird’s-eye option now refers to both exclusive Bird’s-eye 45-degree angled view and a traditional top-down aerial view (a toggle switch between the two).
  • “New” Left-Rail for Bing.com/Maps, give a direct on-ramp to what you want to do: get driving, walking, or transit directions; view live traffic and traffic cameras; view local restaurants and businesses; and explore Map Apps.

  • Broader access to Map Apps & StreetSide. Now , everyone using Bing Maps can access Map Apps and StreetSide (through a Map App). These features are still built on Silverlight and users will need Silverlight installed to use them.
