Hamishwillee - Subedited/Reviewed
Thanks for contributing! I hadn't commented yet because this is marked as "Draft category". Do you consider it ready for review?
I've given this a subedit. The main change is to the introduction where I have explained what a "PushPin" is, and provided links to the alternative. One thing that is not clear is why you're doing this - ie why is it good to have a pushpin without using the Windows Phone 8 ToolKit PushPin control? What do they both offer? What does this offer that the Toolkin pin doesn't? Are there other customisations that might be made?
You refer to "This UserControlLayOut is a usercontrol ..." but I don't see UserControlLayOut actually defined - should this be "UCCustomToolTip"
In terms of writing, to some extent this is just a code dump - ie "Layout for MainPage :", "Code behind for...". It would be even better if you took a little time to explain what your code does and how it is put together. Lastly, how people might customise it. Explanations would cover stuff like what this does: <Path Data="M0,0 L0,1 L1,0"
Perhaps headings like "Defining the pin", "How to make the tooltip display", "How to add the pin to a map" would help.

Intas - Great article
Hi, Great example of custom pushpins, one thing that I found missing is setting PositionOrigin, mylocationOverlay.PositionOrigin = new Point(0, 1); otherwise dot does not represent current point.
