OK, just downloaded and installed S&T2013 demo (which surprisingly is still on MS S&T site)
on a Win7 PC.

I see that POIs in S&T can be opened directly into Bing maps. So that answers that question.
Good to know.

Look like I spoke too soon, due to not checking closely enough.
Turns out that choosing "Open Into Bing" on an S&T place only opens Bing maps to the appropriate area, not the specific place selected in S&T.

And Bing Maps is always zoomed so far out that the specific place isn't obvious, and always shows Satellite view, too.

I would have assumed it worked like Mapsource where "View in Google Earth" opens to the selected item (route, track, waypoint) and zoomed to an appropriate view.

I guess an S&T place>"Open Into Bing" doesn't transfer anything but the coordinates to BingMaps, not the place name or address.
