Testing Apps That Use the Geolocator

The Windows Phone emulator includes a tool for simulating location tracking, which can be accessed by clicking the Additional Tools button on the emulator menu (this was shown in Figure 16.2), and then selecting the Location tab on the Additional Tools windows.

The location simulator works in two modes: a live mode that allows you to interact with the map to send location data to the emulator as soon as you click on the map and a playback mode that causes the location simulator to step through a sequence of map points, which you enter by clicking on the map (see Figure 17.5).
