Description Philipp Sumi 2017-06-15 21:17:08 UTC
I have a map with two pins to highlight a route. The map is centered between the two locations. The map is set to be InputTransparent, and so is the Grid that contains the map. However, double-tapping on the map still causes zooming, and tapping a pin centers the map on the pin and shows the context info, thus scrolling the other pin out of view.

                    <Grid InputTransparent="True">
                        <Map InputTransparent="True" />

I was able to reproduce this with the Map sample[1] when using 

However I updated the sample to 2.3.5-pre3 and this issue appears to be resolved. The map no longer responds to touch events when InputTransparent is true.
