    Hi all,


    Currently we are using Bing Map though radMap.provider  in our silverlight application and we got a mail from microsoft that they are deprecating Bing Maps AJAX Control v7 and SOAP Web Services Deprecation also, Bing Maps v6.3 and Silverlight controls will end in Nov 2016.

    Does this going to impact our application in any way ? Does telerik have any update on how to proceed ?

    In one of the forum, it was asked to use BingRestMapProvider instead of BingMapProvider. Is it true? do we just need to change it in our xaml. thats it ?

                                    <telerik:BingMapProvider ApplicationId="1234" />

    Hi Supreet,

    Yes, the SOAP web services will be discontinued in June 2017. You should replace the BingMapProvider with BingRestMapProvider like in your code snippet. If you encounter any differences after this migration, please do let us know.
    Also, you can vote for the following feature request in our portal. It is about adding new Search, Route, Geocode Rest providers in RadMap.
