Bing Maps offers three views:

  • Road
  • Birds-Eye
  • Automatic, which switches between Road and Birds-Eye view depending on your zoom level.

I want Bing Maps to always come up in Automatic view, but I can’t seem to find a setting for it. Every time I use a map it starts out in Road view.

I tried logging in (thinking it might save my view), and I’ve tried the “Preferences” link in the upper-right corner (there was nothing relevant).

How do I default to Automatic view?
