    We use the standard bing map provider in our WPF apps (2016.2.503.40).

    We have just received notification that Microsoft are retiring Bing Maps AJAX Control and the SOAP Web Services on June 30, 2017. 

    Will this affect our current apps, or does the map control use v8\rest services?

    Hi Lee,

    RadMap provides BingRestMapProvider which is REST based and should be the replacement of the SOAP based BingMapProvider. If we find anything is missing in it we will do our best to include it until June 2017. We currently do not have REST based Search, Geocode, Route provider and we will consider adding them in the Road Map for 2017. You can vote and follow this feature request.

    Hello Triveni,

    If you are using BingMapProvider and you simply show map tiles - you can just replace BingMapProvider with BingRestMapProvider. Please follow this help article.

    RadMap BingRestMapProvider

    However, if you use BingRouteProvider or BingGeocodeProvider, you need to update to R1 2017 where the BingRestMapProvider implements REST services to search for a routes or lat / long locations.

    If you use BingSearchProvider (which is SOAP based) unfortunately, there is no replacement - both in MS services (there is no MS REST replacement yet) and in our BingRestMapProvider.

    Please let us know if this helps you move forward.
