Hi there,

 

Bing Maps shows my city name incorrectly in some versions.

 

For example, in the Spanish version, the name of my city is misspelled, it appears as "Cabinas" instead of "Cabimas", while in the English version it does appear correctly ("Cabimas").

 

This behavior is very annoying, since it causes problems with the location, as well as errors with, for example, the Weather widget (in Windows 10 and in Android, Microsoft Launcher).

 

I have already reported several times and have not received a response. Microsoft Launcher has updated, recently it shows the name of my city correctly, but if I search for it manually (before this problem, it detected my location and the name of the city without errors).

 

I really don't know who to contact anymore, because this problem has been around for a long time (I think it has been going on for 2 years or so).

 

Gabe.
