Due to an upgrade of Bing Maps, support is ending for the Online Map Data feature for Autodesk AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT 2014-based products.
As of June 30, 2017, Microsoft stopped offering version 7 of Bing Maps, which is used to drive the Geolocation Online Map Data feature in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT 2014.
If you have version 2014, you will need to upgrade to a newer version of your AutoCAD-based product if you want to use the feature. Product versions 2015 and later can continue to use the feature by updating to the latest version of Bing Maps.
