Xamarin.Forms.Maps integration in WinPhone Project

Map is an external component which will be obtained from the Nuget Component store.

Integration of Maps requires some config changes from platform to platforms. I have targeted the WinPhone project configuration here. In the next blog, will point to other platforms.

Simple Steps

  • Add Xamarin.Forms.Map to every project in the solution
  • Call the FormMaps.Init() method in each project to initialize the map
  • Create the Map object with region co-ordinates
  • Add that Map object in a layout in the PCL/Shared project


In the PCL/Shared project, Let’s add a new Content page and name it as MapPage.cs. Now time to add the below code to it.
