Location based services have always looked like a very cool feature to me. Showing the user their covered or targeted location and route made the process of moving around so much better.

via Xamarin tutorial – iOS MapKit Part 3 | Leif Larsen.

This is the third and final post, in the three-part tutorial, on using the iOS MapKit in a Xamarin iOS project. In thefirst post we looked at the initial setup of the project, as well as basic generation of a map view. The previous post took a look at annotations and how to create custom annotations. In this final post we will look at search functionality using MKLocalSearch.

The source code can still be found at GitHub.
