    I guess just make sure that location is on... Could also be something with her Microsoft Account, but that would be odd...

    That feature is disabled by default outside of the US I believe. However you can turn it on by simply setting your region to United States in settings.

    EDIT: I assume from your previous posts that you are in fact in the US, so I would make sure as nmercy said that location is on and your region settings are correct.

    I actually have a different issue with local scout. I'm in Canada, so this might be a set up issue, but for the "Eat + Drink" and "Shop" categories, it never pulls down any information. The "For You" and "See and Do" both work.

    I have a Lumia 920 and this happens in Bing Maps but NOT on Nokia Maps.

    Any ideas?

    Ha. I got it. It is because your browser&search lanugage is different than "phone language". Go to settings->language+region, and make them same, and then launch bing. If you only change "browser &search language", you don't even have to restart phone.
