Ross Heise has a quick walkthrough on adding geolocation to your Windows store Apps. Here’s a bit of code to whet your appetite:
The Windows.Devices.Geolocation namespace is used for retrieving your location. Whether you use GPS, a WiFi network, or an IP address to retrieve a user’s location depends on two primary factors:
- The accuracy level requested. This is the ideal level of accuracy to meet your app’s needs.
- The availability of location data. Meaning, not all devices have GPS built in. Or a network or Wi-Fi connection may not be available when the location is requested.
[…] For full details on using geolocation and the Bing Maps SDK, we have a new video, how-to topic , and code sample that leads you through the steps of asynchronously acquiring your location and then using the Bing Maps SDK to show where you are in a visual manner.
