Description Wally McClure 2014-09-17 11:30:06 UTC
We are setting the maptype of a map in the code below.  In iOS, this works properly.  In Android on Mac when using XS, the MapType street view is shown initially.  If we make a change in the maptype programmatically after that, we get the correct result. 

	public class App
		public static Page GetMainPage ()
			return new NavigationPage(new MapPage());

	public class MapPage : ContentPage {
		public MapPage() {
			var map = new Map(
					new Position(37,-122), Distance.FromMiles(0.3))) {
				IsShowingUser = true,
				HeightRequest = 100,
				WidthRequest = 960,
				VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand
			map.MapType = MapType.Satelite;
			var stack = new StackLayout { Spacing = 0 };
			Content = stack;
			this.Title = "Map Page";

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce. To reproduce this issue I have used above code in my application.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create Xamarin.Forms application
2. Add a XAML page
    PCL=>Add=>New File=>Forms=>Forms ContentPage XAML  give name "MapPage" click New
3. Add above code to the "MapPage.cs" page 
4. Observed that "map.MapType = MapType.Satellite;"  in "MapPage.cs"
5. Call the page in App.cs
      return new NavigationPage(new PageName());
6. Set iOS as startup project and run the application
7. Observe that Map view is  "Satellite" that is right
8. Set Android as startup project and run the application
9. Observe that Map view is "Street" while we set it "map.MapType = MapType.Satellite;

I run the application on android device and here is the screenshot of device, in which the street view is show. And the second screencast is for iOS on which application working fine.

This no longer is the case on recent versions of Forms.
Comment 3 Rajneesh Kumar 2015-05-27 08:26:04 UTC
I have checked this issue with the xamarin.forms version: and observed that this issue does not exist now. Now I am able to see the "Satellite" map on android device. Here is the image of the device: http://www.screencast.com/t/q9jtT12G

This issue has been fixed, hence I am closing this issue.
