So I've been using the BingMapsTask since wp7 to show a specific location that the user has selected in the app. But since wp8, the behaviour has changed! How can we still use the BingMapsTaks?
To run this code, be sure to change your region settings to BELGIUM - DUTCH. When you do this, the code will show correct location in WP7 emulator, but on WP8 it won't! ( see images for settings and result )
Demo app on GitHub
GeoCoordinate location = new GeoCoordinate(51.40205, 4.46802);
BingMapsTask task = new BingMapsTask();
task.Center = location;
task.SearchTerm = location.ToString();
task.ZoomLevel = 9;
