I have an annoying bug with the native WP8 map app (not the Nokia Here maps) on my HTC 8X : my current location always shows the pin of a location I onced saved, no matter where I actually am.
Let's say I called it that location "Our house, in the middle of a street", well now whenever I open maps and click for my current location, it will have a pin "Our house, in the middle of a street" on my current location; needless to say, my house is *not* in the middle of that street...
I deleted that saved location, recreated it somewhere else, re-deleted it, renamed it, deleted the history... nothing fixed the problem: where ever I am is always "Our house, in the middle of street".
Anyone else got this bug ?
Anyone know how to fix this, short of doing a phone reset ? (*not an option at the moment*)
For now, I've resolved to switch to Nokia Here maps as a temporary (permanent?) fix...
Note 1: I have GDR2, but this bug predates that. Phone is unlocked HTC 8X from Rogers, 8Gb.
Note 2: When I initially created that pin, I had problems and the app crashed - I think the phone hardlocked...

Indeed, I think the only way to "reinstall" the native map app is a phone reset, and I can't do that right now, I need my phone at the moment...

I feel like you named yourself...and that is what is following you around... It is very weird. How did you first try to "save your location" / what were you doing when it crashed and stuck there?

I don't remember exactly how it happened, it was a little while ago - it may actually have been the first
pinlocation I saved and got prompted for something, realized my mistake, mashed the back button furiously and crashed out...

Yea...I don't know what you mean by "the first pin I saved". I can save favorite locations (but only in HERE Maps, not Bing) and pin locations to the start screen but not sure how to save a pin...
Sorry, but you completely got me, haha.
What happens when you just "clear map". Normally that just takes all the names off the screen...?

Ooops, meant favorite location, not pin!
You can save locations in Bing maps this way :
- press and hold the location on the map you want to save; a pin will appear there with the address
- press the tag of the newly created pin, that will open an 'About' page for that location
- press the add to favorites icon at the bottom
Clear map removes all the pins on the map; as soon as I click on my location on the map, the pin reappears.
Also, looking in my map favorites/recent list, I get duplicates with the same tag everytime(?) I click the tag, so my "recent" list is overpopulated with a bunch of "Maison Mackenzie", with different & same addresses...

OK, I don't have the option to save a favorite in Bing Maps on my Nokia 920... I can only save favorites in HERE maps. (I just get to the Bing Maps through Local Scout.)
And the duplicates is an issue too, there should only be 1 entry per address and once you revisit a place it moves to the top. Have you tried to remove all your Favorites? I am assuming you have.
