    Go to settings, swipe to the right to see applications, go to search, toggle use my location. Now go to Bing home page by pressing the search button. You should see Local scout, Music, the barcode scanner.Hit local scout then the three dots and pin to start. Done

    The barcode scanner is Bing Vision.

    Actually, its competently missing on my HTC 8X in BC, Canada. I used to have it on my HD7 but now its gone. I've seen videos of people swiping over on the Bing screen but this functionality is completely missing from my phone. Is this a regional thing? Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Change the browser language from Canada (English) to United States (English). Good news, you get Local Scout. Bad news, your maps will be imperial if you're using the MS built in ones.
