I am very please with how quickly the polygon/route manages to draw thousands of points in a line.

What i want however is points, not joined into a line.

When i use the GMapMarker, code provided in the WPF demo, and make a point marker for each point performance is much slower. Eg. 3-8 seconds to draw about 4000 to 8000 points. I have tried other variations and been able to speed up a bit vs the demo GMapMarker (Cross, Circle, CustomMarkerRed, CustomMarkerDemo etc.). At best i am able to process about 4000 points in 3 seconds. I test this by adding the markers, then removing them.

I can see there may be other ways to do it, bypassing GMap marker and perhaps overlay a bitmap, but this is a lot more complex.

So wondering if i have missed anything in GMaps that would meet these needs.

dunno, but why so many points?
