  • Don't you just get the coordinates and map that to a country?

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • You can use the GeoLocation API‎  to get the user's location and then use Bing's Locations API to reverse geocode it to find the country.
