I know the telerik radmap control is not based on the bing maps control, but I just want to confirm that the deadline imposed on the Bing Maps control by microsoft will not affect the telerik map control in any way?

I've been using the Bing Maps Silverlight control and now want to switch to RadMap, given the upcoming deprecation of the Bing Sivlerlight control.
In reading the documentation for RadMap, it mentions a BingMapProvider (SOAP imagery service) or BingRestMapProvider (RESTful imagery service). That documentation seems to contradict your statement above that the BingMapProvider is based upon a REST services.
This seems significant because the SOAP Service will be deprecated in June 2017, according to Microsoft. I want to avoid converting to RadMap now and then having to make more changes again in June 2017.
So, when I create the object in C#, should I create BingMapProvider or a BingRestMapProvider?
Please first excuse me for misleading you.
To bold the info from the documentation:
BingMapPrvider is SOAP based and BingRestMapProvider is REST based.
We created a feature request in our portal where you will be able to find further information and you will be able to follow it.
Thanks for the quick response.
I went to the Feature Request link that you referenced. If I understand what I read, the BingRestMapProvider does not currently support Geocode, Search & Route. Is that correct?
Yes, they would eventually be a separate classes like - BingRestSearchProvider, BingRestRouteProvider etc.
