    In the file location specified it has this line of code -
    var DEFAULT_URL = 'compressed.tracemonkey-pldi-09.pdf';

    It's telling you to reference the file location of the local PDF you want to display via that DEFAULT URL variable.

    this is my renderer

    [assembly: ExportRenderer (typeof(CustomWebView), typeof(CustomWebViewRenderer))]
    namespace DisplayPDF.Droid
        public class CustomWebViewRenderer : WebViewRenderer
            protected override void OnElementChanged (ElementChangedEventArgs<WebView> e)
                base.OnElementChanged (e)
                if (e.NewElement != null) {
                var customWebView = Element as CustomWebView;
                Control.Settings.AllowUniversalAccessFromFileURLs = true;
                Control.LoadUrl (string.Format ("file:///android_asset/pdfjs/web/viewer.html?file={0}", string.Format ("file:///{0}", WebUtility.UrlEncode (customWebView.Uri))));
