Description Adam Patridge 2014-08-05 13:08:37 UTC

> Google Maps requires a per-app API key. You can obtain a maps API key from here: http://docs.xamarin.com/android/advancedtopics/ObtainingaGoogleMapsAPIKey

URL isn't rendering as a clickable link. When you go to that URL manually, you end up at the generic Android Guides page (http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/).

Potential Solution:
This looks like it might be the updated location to link to from that guide: http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/platform_features/maps_and_location/maps/obtaining_a_google_maps_api_key/
