Map rotation for Mobile?

Hello,

 

I'm evaluating GMap for a commercial product.

One of our requirements is to support map rotation based on the angle of the direction the user is going to (bearing).

I've seen in one discussion (http://greatmaps.codeplex.com/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=78708) this was being tested, but I can't find it in the source code available for download.

 

Any idea on what I am doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

Joao

check your link, i've posted there link with successful build & source, the wish is noted, but it's not my top priority to make it happen

What I meant was that it wasn't available in the official source.

Is there a problem in it for not being yet released?

I'm sorry, but what do you mean?

Volunteers to test and apply the demo you published in the source?

..just kidding ;} ..there is code for rotation in wpf version, but there is no in windows forms version, and because in cf you can't do transformations, i wonder how we make it?

ok, windows forms now has integrated rotation

Does it solve the rotation problem on Windows Mobile? I have exactly the same problem as jsantos98 and don't really know how to solve it. I saw your code for Windowf Forms but can it be used in Mobile ?

compact framework doesn't support transformations, no easy fix

Any idea or tip how to solve it? Would it be to expensive for mobile processor if I wrote my own function to rotate screenshot of the map (some matrix calculations, I suppose) ?
