    Issue with WP7 NavigationService.Navigate on Lumia 900

    We have noticed a difference how Nokia Lumia 900 device operates when compared to Windows Phone 7.1 development emulator and real HTC device (HTC Trophy). We are developing Silverlight + XNA application for Windows phone 7.1 (Mango). We have noticed that NavigationService.Navigate produces crashes on Lumia 900 devices that we are not getting on emulator or with HTC devices. Our program uses multiple different xaml -pages and we move between pages using navigationService as follows e.g.

     NavigationService.Navigate(new Uri("/Results_Page.xaml", UriKind.Relative));
    We cannot use NavigationService.GoBack since application logic is somewhat complex and we might need to jump to different page where we originally came from. Therefore we are making sure that there are no extra backEntries or any other trash that could cause issues when navigating (this seems to be the case on emulator/HTC). Now what happens on Lumia 900 is that navigation works quite nicely in the begging, but when memory loads are getting bigger (this is my assumption only) the above code (1) causes the program to crash. This crash is specific to Lumia 900 device and it does not occur in HTC -device nor in WP7 emulator. Below a partial stacktrace

    Interesting is that the above call works just nicely at first but after awhile it crashes. This issue is not specific to Results_Page.xaml. Any navigation will cause this (after a certain time). We need some kind of workaround to this. Our application is almost release ready we just need to get this fixed.

    This is weird, but this looks specific to your application, Is your code obfuscated ? Are you using any external assemblies on your page (Coding4Fun, or Telerik for example ) ?
    Does it happen if you try to navigate from the xaml ?
        	<i:EventTrigger EventName="Click">
                                <ec:NavigateToPageAction TargetPage="/Results_Page.xaml"/>

    You can try to use behaviours for the page navigation. Have you try to simplify your XAML pages for test? Keep just "LayoutRoot" and try to navigate.
    Run the performance analyser, if you have memory link or something like that, this could be helpfull.

    The issue was resolved. We reduced the size of the XAP -file and now everything works nicely. It seems that memory management in Lumia might not be as good as in HTC? Funny thing is that our peak memory usage was below 50% (but close). We are targeting the app for 512MB devices anyway.

    Thank you for your responses.
