Description Jonathan Pryor 2011-11-01 08:25:07 UTC
Android.GoogleMaps.ItemizedOverlay can't be subclassed, because it doesn't declare the abstract ItemizedOverlay.CreateItem(int) method:


The reason for this is that ItemizedOverlay is a generic type, and ItemizedOverlay.createItem() returns the generic type parameter, which `generator` doesn't like. :-/
