Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2014-07-30 21:14:35 UTC
On iOS, when map.IsShowingUser = true, a blue dot appears at the current location. Nothing is shown for the current location on Android (or WinPhone but I am told this is not implemented on WinPhone yet)

To repro:

1. Open attached test project
2. Set the iOS project as the startup project and deploy
3. Scroll the map to the current location manually

Expected result: an indication (blue circle on iOS) of the current location will be visible
Actual result: As expected

4. Stop app.
5. Set the Android project as the startup project and deploy
6. Scroll the map manually to your current location

Expected result: some indicator of the current location will be visible
Actual result: No indicator showing the current location is visible.

Tested with Xamarin.Forms version 1.0.6188 and

Note: Could not add attachment due to size limitations (even after removing all bin and obj folders and packages.)

Also, since I had removed the packages to reduce size, you will need to restore the nuget packages for the solution.
