I am using the Autosuggest Manager to add pins to a map but I have found an issue where the latitude and longitude coordinates for a point are wrong. They also don't return the same coordinates as when I use bing.com/maps.

When I search for 'Sydney Road, Durban' on bing.com/maps, I get a pin with the latitude, longitude of -29.885777, 30.986178.

When I search for 'Sydney Road, Durban' on using a map with the Autosuggest Manager, I get a pin with the latitude, longitude of --33.8958, 18.6293 which is Sydney Road in Cape Town. When I dig into the results returned from the Autosuggest Manager the address is what I expected

    addressLine "Sydney Road"
    adminDistrict   "KwaZulu-Natal"
    countryRegion   "South Africa"
    countryRegionISO2   "ZA"
    district    "eThekwini"
    formattedAddress    "Sydney Road, Durban, South Africa"
    locality    "Durban"
    postalCode  undefined

It looks as if the wrong latitude and longitude has been attached to this address. How can I get this fixed?

    I have given the answer in the other forum as well...

    I have escalated your issue to the maps autosuggest team to take a look but they work on an AGILE schedule so I can't commit to a time for them to respond or fix.
