For those missing Bing in the background, think about OpenStreetMap (the defacto map for Apple)
Simply add a new WMS layer in Display Manager:
Data > Connect to Data > Add WMS Connection
- Add http://wms.latlon.org/?layers=osm and version as 1.1.1
- Cick Connect
- Click Login
- Check OpenStreetMap mapnik
- Click Add to Map
You will the openstreetmap.org data from latlon.org
Nice touch. For those of you using Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server (mapguide) you can do this, even for you BASIC WEB LAYOUTS where you don't want to use Flexible web layouts
For those missing Bing in the background
Thanks for the tip, G.
If I load the Latlon layer in a WMS opensource client, I can see all the beauty of the Bing imagery, by setting it like this.
What about you to try the same in Map/Civil 2013, instead of the OSM streets?
Is latlon.org a reputable service provider? I can not access latlon.org from our intranet because
latlon.org ist listed in our blacklist of “Trend Micro OfficeScan”.

It works for me as long as I'm set to V 1.1.1, however when I zoom into a size and resample I get a black tile.... Anyone else having this problem?

Yes. I get the same problem. It looks fine when zoomed out to world level, but how do I resample as I zoom in?

The OSM WMS is looks like a good alternative. Thanks for the tip!
I can see the services, but when I try to add them to the map I get:
WARNING: The problems below were found applying style(s) to element osm:
Coordinate transformation failed for this feature.
The best way to use OpenStreetMap data is to connect before a georeferenced map.
Data works well if you assign a coordinate system before connecting to WMS.
It is important also to use Proxy options,otherwise Proxy can stop connection
