how to use web view to load Google maps Windows phone 8.1 app using JavaScript ?

    Question

  • From what I read there is no proper API for Google maps on Windows. So can I use web view control to work with Google maps. But will it be reliable with support for caching map like native app using web view ?

    And I can't use Bing map as it is not that good in my country. Code example could be helpful.

  • Hi gr3en,

    I think you may ask Google to see if they have a existing API for you to work with Windows Store App. As I know Google Map API v3 should help you implement google map functionality on Windows Store App by HTML and JavaScript.

    However if you load the map into a iframe or x-ms-webview is also a possible solution, I found a similar discussion: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23520879/integrating-google-maps-into-winjs
