Esri Data Maps - Desktop vs. ArcGIS Online

Discussion created by jacob38028 on Sep 20, 2011
Anyone else have the issue of ESRI Data Maps running very slow within the ArcGIS Desktop platform but running smooth in ArcGIS online?  I am currently running ArcGIS 10 and have the data maps (Bing Aerial Map) in a basemap layer.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
