2. Can you use Google Maps with Live Maps?

As a Microsoft partner, Live Maps is compatible with Bing Maps. You can show all your components over an interactive Bing Map. For those with an Enterprise license and are under current M&S or Subscription, Savision can provide you with a license to use Bing maps without charge. Just email support or customer success to get this license. One thing to note is that you cannot use an interactive map inside a service. In this particular case, you can create a static map instead.
