Hi All,

Problem solved. I was using incorrect method to change map type. Changed code below.

Next GoogleMap question. When I change the map type with the code below the Map_CameraChange event is no longer fired. Everything is working OK until then, it doesn't matter if the change is from road map to satellite or vice versa. If I restart the app all is back to normal.

I've done the usual searches but the solution still escapes me.

Sub BtnMapType_click
    If MapTypeInt = 1 Then
        MapTypeInt = 4                            'Change map to satellite with labels for locations and roads etc.
        'BtnMapType.Text = "Road Map"
        MapTypeInt = 1                            'Change map to standard road map 
        'BtnMapType.Text = "Satellite"
    End If
    MapZoom = gmap.CameraPosition.Zoom
    MapBearing = gmap.CameraPosition.Bearing
    MapCenter = gmap.CameraPosition.Target
    MapLat = MapCenter.Latitude
    MapLng = MapCenter.Longitude
   gmap.maptype = MapTypeInt       'Regenerate map with new map type.
   ' mFragment.Initialize("Map", MapPanel)        'Incorrect method that caused problem
End Sub
Regards Roger
