  • The built in maps in WP 7/8/8.1 is a Bing Maps control that is built into the WP SDK. This is also the case for WP10/Win10. Google maps has no map controls for Windows Phone.

    You should target WP8.1 and not WP8 as that's the version most WP users are on. The WP8.1 maps control is also more inline with the WP10/Win10 map controls, so it will make it easier for you to upgrade your app in the future. You can find documentation here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/windows/apps/xaml/dn642089.aspx
