    Map control in Windows Phone

    Hi,
    I have just started developing for Windows Phone 8.I am making a app using the Map control of Windows Phone.I was wondering whether to Use HERE Maps or Bing maps in the app.Could you guide me in some direction for this?Also why landmarks or locations are not easily seen unless magnified in the default Map control of Windows Phone 8.

    Re: Map control in Windows Phone

    For Windows phone 8, you would use the Maps API available in the SDK, it is then using the HERE maps data. Examples available at: http://projects.developer.nokia.com/WP8MapsExamples

    Incase you would want to use the HERE apps installed into the device from your app, you could check: https://projects.developer.nokia.com/here_launchers

    Both the launchers & maps API also do have documentation at: http://developer.nokia.com/Resources...avigation.html
