Windows Phone

Windows Phone 8

For Nokia Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8 use the Map control included in the SDK (see Maps and navigation for Windows Phone 8 and How to add a Map control to a page in Windows Phone 8). Note that the API is used on all Windows Phone 8 devices (not just Nokia devices) and that this is not the same control as was used with Windows Phone 7.

For code examples showing how to use maps on Windows Phone 8 devices see WP8MapsExamples. Also see the wiki articles in Portal:Windows Phone Location & Maps.

Windows Phone 7

With Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 7 devices use the Bing Maps API. Note that the API is used on all Windows Phone 7 devices (not just Nokia devices).

Examples for using this API can be found in the article Maps Examples for Windows phone (and in other articles in Portal:Windows Phone Location & Maps).
