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. In this blog, we will try to implement MapKit, a very simple and easy framework provided by Apple, to work upon with map and location requirements. Our aim will be to implement location tracking services and show the covered route on Map View. This will be done using Swift.

During the WWDC 2015, Apple introduced new iOS 9 features in MapKit. The development community has been requesting these feature for a long time and finally, here they are. Let’s check them in detail.
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.
