Use X-VE-Tile-Info to avoid "no tile" tiles in Bing Maps

The maximum zoom level supported by Bing depends on the location. Bing returns a dummy "no-tile" tile if a proper tile is not available at the requested location and zoom level. See below.

 

 

Bing adds the header
"X-VE-Tile-Info" = "no tile"
to the responce, when returning the dummy tile. I suggest that the Bing map providers adds a check for this header and hence allows GMap to replace the dummy tiles with lower level tiles.

Thanks,
