Xamarin.Forms.GoogleMaps

Gitter chat donate/gumload

日本語の README はこちら!

Yet another maps library for Xamarin.Forms that optimized for Google maps.

Usage is almost the same as Xamarin.Forms.Maps, Because this is forked from Xamarin.Forms.Maps - github

DEMO Apps

You can try DEMO Apps for Android/iOS that includes all this library features. DEMO Apps source code is here.

Motivation

The official Xamarin.Forms.Map has minumn functions only.

Especially, Bing Maps SDK is very old-fashioned because it has not vector-tile, marker's infowindow.

Android and iOS monopolize most the mobile apps market. Thus I think no need Bing maps support.

Furthermore, I am using Google Maps instead of MapKit because it is easy for define common API for Android and iOS.

Xamarin.Forms.GoogleMaps provides maximum Google maps features for Xamarin.Forms!!

Comparison with Xamarin.Forms.Maps

Feature X.F.Maps X.F.GoogleMaps
Map types Yes Yes
Traffic map - Yes
Map events - Yes
Panning with animation Yes Yes
Panning directly - Yes
Pins Yes Yes
Custom Pins - Yes
Pin drag & drop - Yes

Circles - Yes
Custom map tiles - Yes

For more information, see Comparison with Xamarin.Forms.Maps.

Setup

Platform Support

Platform Supported
iOS Unified Yes
Android Yes
Windows 10 UWP No
Others No

Usage

Same as this

In iOS, get the API Key from Google Maps API for iOS then insert Init of AppDelegate.cs.

// AppDelegate.cs
[Register("AppDelegate")]
public partial class AppDelegate : global::Xamarin.Forms.Platform.iOS.FormsApplicationDelegate
{
    public override bool FinishedLaunching(UIApplication app, NSDictionary options)
    {
        global::Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init();
        Xamarin.FormsGoogleMaps.Init("your_google_maps_ios_api_key");
        LoadApplication(new App());

        return base.FinishedLaunching(app, options);
    }
}

Namespace is Xamarin.Forms.GoogleMaps instead of Xamarin.Forms.Maps.

Sample application is here.

This is just a short list of apps and projects that use Xamarin.Forms.GoogleMaps. If you've used Xamarin.Forms.GoogleMaps in a apps and would like it listed on this page, Please report it.
