    where do you add subscribe and unsubscribe?

    Hi @AlessandroCaliaro Thank you for reply,
    I'm added Subscribe and Unsubscribe In Page 1, as shown in below code.

    protected override void OnAppearing()
    MessagingCenter.Unsubscribe<Page1, string>(this, "Hi");
    MessagingCenter.Subscribe<Page1, string>(this, "Hi", (sender, e) =>
    currentLocation.Text = " Items near " + e;


    This is the send code from page 2 on Button click event

    saveButton.Clicked += async (sender, e) =>
    MessagingCenter.Send(this, "Hi","Address");
    await Navigation.PopAsync();

    Usually is a good idea to Subscribe in OnAppearing and unsubscribe in InDisappearing. Try this

    @challashiva - Rather than use OnAppearing() for this, I'd look at using the Pushed and Popped events in NavigationPage, doing the subscription when Page1 is Pushed and unsubscribing when Page1 is Popped.
