Off the top of my head I thought that when you select the map from the Extra's option and select BING as the map source, it then shows the map in the hotspot editor. this gives you the option to search for a location, place the hotspot and also adjust the radar direction, angle & colour etc.

The map layer used by Panotour Pro inside Panotour Pro is GoogleMaps whatever the map leyer choosen for the tour.

The Hotspot Editor area is not a preview of the map that will be displayed in your tour.
It is just a tool that helps you to place correctly your spots.

Latitude/Longitude are the same whatever the map layer.

The issue here may be that Bing maps photos and Google maps photos may be incorrect slightly due to parallax or any of the other issues we have come to know and "love".

But even if you use Bing maps to set the points, there's no guarantee that Bing maps will show the same picture the next time. That is, Bing and Google and others update the photos from time to time. They don't guarantee that features will stay in the same place, accurate to the millimeter.

Thanks, but i don't understand why can't have directly in the editor the Bing Map, it will help to solve this problem.

But what happens when Bing updates the photos in six months?

For this type of application, a drawing of the layout of the house may be better.
