Description Vladislav Kosev 2015-01-03 03:27:39 UTC
In Xamarin.GooglePlayServices 16 there is a class Android.Gms.Maps.GoogleMap+InfoWindowClickEventArgs which has a property "P0" representing the clicked marker. In Xamarin.GooglePlayServices 19 this property is (more appropriately) renamed "Marker". Xamarin.Forms.Maps.Android.MapRenderer has this method, which clearly was not compiled with 19 in mind (from .NET Reflector, hence the get_ calls):

private void MapOnMarkerClick(object sender, GoogleMap.InfoWindowClickEventArgs eventArgs)
    Marker marker = eventArgs.get_P0();
    Pin pin = null;
    for (int i = 0; i < this.Map.get_Pins().Count; i++)
        Pin pin2 = this.Map.get_Pins()[i];
        if (!(((string) pin2.Id) != marker.Id))
            pin = pin2;
    if (pin != null)

This throws an exception when a marker is clicked. The problem is that a custom renderer inheriting this one cannot stop this from happening, so there is no working around it if you want to use Xamarin.GooglePlayServices 19 and higher.
