Description n.v.biryukov 2017-01-25 14:18:35 UTC
setMapStyle is not available in Android.Gms.Maps.GoogleMap in packages\Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Maps.\lib\MonoAndroid41\Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Maps.dll

I would like to change a map to my own style with a json string raw resource through custom renderer.
json string can be attained through https://mapstyle.withgoogle.com/

Sadly, there is no such method as setMapStyle for GoogleMap in Android.
Please add it.
Google maps android API has it since sep.2016. Xamarin.IOS seems having it also. But there is no such a method for android.

Just checked our latest bindings( https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.GooglePlayServices.Maps/42.1021.1) for Xamarin.PlaySevices.Maps, and `GoogleMap.SetMapStyle` method is bound.
