Description Dmitry Valetin 2013-12-04 08:25:57 UTC
Hi, we are actively using Google Play Services (Froyo) library in our project and we notise a significant memory leak, which cannot be reproduced with Android Java code.
I have created two simple projects, which reproduce the issue:
1) create SupportMapFragment
2) get GoogleMap object instance
3) run infinite loop to add and remove single marker on the map

With native Java code heap size is stable and does not exceed initial allocation budget.
With Xamarin, heap exhausted in a few seconds.

Test projects attached.

Google Play Services for Froyo is no longer supported. 

If this issue occurs in a current version of Google Play Service, please attach a reproduction and re-open this issue.
