up until now (last few months) when adding the geotagging info to a specific blog post, the little window in the New Post page always utilized Google Maps. All of a sudden, today the google's gone and it's now with Bing maps.
Now, I'm not a Google fanboy or anything (lest I go to Blogspot), however, this new Bing maps is next to useless.
I'll explain: I'm in South Korea (ROK). My blog is about hiking. Therefore, most of the geolocators will not be on any routes or in any population centers. Bing has no options like Google does (Map view, Satellite view, or, most importantly for me: Terrain view (with elevation contours)). Nada.
Additionally, Bing seems to be using a map of Korea that maybe dates back twenty years...half the roads and highways aren't even on it--and the names, well, the names. Bing's map is only in English, Google's is bilingual. This helps alot when the romanized (latin alphabet) names aren't up to snuff.
In searching the forums and blog posts, I've seen nothing referring to such change, the geotagging page still has google maps in the example pics, and it was less than a week ago that last time I geotagged, it was via Google Maps.
All that to state my disapproval with this (seemingly minor) changover. In my case, it has a large impact.
Thanks for any info or workarounds.
PS: At the minimum, Bing does accept raw Lat/Long coordinates, for those of us who do carry GPSr around with us...
The blog I need help with is w2vla.wordpress.com.
