There's a legal requirement to display the attribution text when using Google maps within the app, however the text returned by the method to retrieve the text (GoogleApiAvailability.Instance.GetOpenSourceSoftwareLicenseInfo(...)) is null.
Happens when using the Google Play Services component 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 nuget packages. There seems to be an issue raised with Google about this as well (https://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=9813) but not sure if there are also changes required for the Xamarin bindings
As mentioned above this appears to be a Google issue and we need to wait for them to resolve it.
However I have assigned to Jon to be sure.
This works fine on newer versions of Google Play Services.
