WP8 Map control with custom tiles RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to display a map control in my app targeting Windows Phone 8 but I want to use custom tiles from open street map.

    I'm using this line :

    mapControl.TileSources.Add(new TileSource("http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/{zoomLevel}/{x}/{y}.png"));

    When I launch the app the custom tiles are properly displayed, but there's still the default map tiles underneath them.

    I tried to hide them, but I counld'nt even find where they exist in the map control and what is displaying them exactly.

    I would like to know how I can remove those default tiles when loading custom tiles.

    I tried to hide them, but I counld'nt even find where they exist in the map control and what is displaying them exactly.
