Sample project & screenshot

In my solution I am calling some Google web services that returns my reverse
geolocation (JSON) as well as a static map (byte []). This worked 100% prior to
the upgrade to the Mono Framework 3.2.0 in both iOS and Android. However, now
when running the same code on the newer version the reverse geolocation does
not return the correct results and the map data is definitely wrong (mostly
shows a blue image). I suspect that the request made is not correct? The
coordinates returned from the geolocation call are correct and when manually
pasting the URL in a browser the results are perfect.

I have tried using System.Net.Http to replace WebClient only to have the same
output. Does not work on the Android emulators. Similar code does not work
on the iOS platform either. 

This is a pretty critical problem as now my apps do not work with the new
versions of Xamarin.Android. No code has changed on my side to cause these issues. 

Please see the attached Android example project and screenshot. Logged for iOS here #13754.
