Bing Maps in a Xamarin forms Android/iOS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User370054 posted

    Hi,

    I have a Xamarin Forms application and Im needing to show Bing Maps in a Content Page, I was trying to follow this https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Getting-Started-with-0ccd1c5b#content but after reading steps 4 and 5 I have a doubt. Can be possible to show Bing Maps over Android Projects? Have you ever tried?

    It seems that there is only support for Google Maps for it.

    Any help is welcome.

    It looks like they have a Bing Maps SDK in preview for Android and iOS, but to use it in Xamarin.Forms would require creating a binding library and writing custom renderers from scratch.
