    Another question would be, when will "15.3" Service Release be available on Stable Channel?

    I have an app with xamarin.VS and using google maps and working fine

    I updated to Xamarin.VS and now I only see a generic map from Rome

    Any ideas why?

    Rome is what you'll see if the coordinates aren't set (at least if you're in Europe) - maybe something goes wrong during initialization. This sounds like a major show stopper to us - did find the root cause of the issue?


    Hey @PhilippSumi yes, I found the problem, for some reason I have to use the InitialCameraUpdate property and now is working

    Have a great one

    I skipped 15.2 completely after all the issues I saw here.
    With the latest version a co-work that DID do that update said the latest resolved the issues.
    I got brave. Big mistake,

    It broke code that previously worked.

    Xamarin.Forms solution.
    In the Droid project
    I had an IResultListener callback OnCompleted that got back a collection of objects then would iteration through them:

                public void OnCompleted(Object dataListLocations, ErrorCode p1)
                {// Street address supplied as request, collection of locations returned
                    if (dataListLocations != null)
                        JavaList locations = (JavaList)dataListLocations;
                        foreach (Location location in locations)

    Now the cast to (JavaList) throws an illegalCastExpection


    How do I roll back this latest update so I can get back to work?
