  • Hi Catto,

    Since the pano and map gestures conflict it's best to navigate to a sub page to show a map.

  • Nick,
    I totally agree with you; I didn't realize it until I tried a map in a pano & deployed it to the device then tried to navigate the map and found it's very difficult to navigate the map within the pano since as you stated the gestures conflict.
    Thanks

  • This guy has a pivot like control that works well with maps and other gesture controls. http://dotnetbyexample.blogspot.com/2010/09/animated-swipe-enabled-title-control.html
