WP8 navigation part 1–geocoding, tombstoning–and testing

After my post about reverse geocoding I set out to make a little app to demonstrate routing in Windows Phone 8. The demo app went quite out of hand, so I decided to split the post up in a few smaller posts. In the course of it I am going to build a basic navigation app that enables the user to determine two locations, find a route between those locations, and display them on a map – all using MVVMLight, of course. And now the 2012.2 update to Visual Studio is released, we can finally build Windows Phone MVVM apps the way things are intended to be: by writing some unit test first, getting the basic functions right, before creating an all-out app. This makes it especially handy to test one important requirement that go for all my apps – all the models and viewmodels must be serializabe, so I can tombstone using SilverlightSerializer like I have been doing for over two years now.
