Microsoft Quietly Shutting Down MapPoint in Favor of Bing Maps

Microsoft has made the decision to retire and make no further input to MapPoint, but will supply online support for the 14 year old service until at least July of 2015. Microsoft has been supporting both MapPoint and Bing Maps, but under the updated guidelines of the new CEO Satya Nadella, the duality has come to an end.

"The retirement of these products will not affect software already installed," Microsoft said. "Current users may continue to use Microsoft AutoRoute, Microsoft Streets & Trips and Microsoft MapPoint to plan their travel adventures."
