Bing maps control in WP8


  • Greetings :)

    I need to incorporate the Bing maps control in my WP8 app because I need to use custom tiles and switch off the base layer. The namespace for the Bing maps control's (Microsoft.Phone.Controls.Mapsdoesn't exist in the WP8 SDK and I cant seem to find any NuGet packages for the old control. I know that it has been deprecated but I have seen a few places (including the WP8 docs) suggesting it can still be used. Furthermore there's nothing on the net describing how to accomplish this. Has anyone here implemented this successfully? If so, could you please also explain how you accomplished this?

    Any help will be appreciated.
