Bing Maps API not showing Push Pins on Map with Get Static Map Action

According to the Bing Maps connection documentation, when you use the GetMap call, you need to enter the imagery set, zoom, lat and long values, and you should get a map back with a pin on the map indicating your location.

 

I only get the map back with no pin.  I have been able to get both the GetLocationByPoint call to return lat and long values, as well as the GetLocationByAddress call to return the address based on lat and long values being entered.  But I cannot get the GetMap call to show a pin.

 

How can I accomplish this?  Is there an issue with the GetMap call currently, since it is in preview?

 

I have an image control displaying the map with the following formula: BingMaps.GetMap("Road",10,LatValue,LongValue).

 

Thanks.

If you want a pushpin, you need to explicitly request it, in the pushpin optional parameter, like in the example below.

BingMaps.GetMap(
    "Road",
    10,
    LatValue, LongValue,
    {pushpin:LatValue & "," & LongValue})

Thanks Carlos!  Works great now.  I was missing the fact I have to use the & "," & in my formula, I was just entering LatValue, LongValue.

 

 

Hi,

 

I took your formula again it looks fine but my powerapps doesn't want to take it he gives me his:

I don't understand why it puts me in an unsupported function.

 

Thank you for your help if you can help me.

You need to add a reference to the Bing Maps connector in your app before you can use this function. Check this link for more information on adding data sources: https://docs.microsoft.com/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/add-data-connection
