Article Description
We show you how to build a location-aware task list application for Windows Mobile devices that uses GPS to remind you of a task when and where it’s appropriate.

In order to use this sample you will need to sign up for the Microsoft MapPoint Web service (https://mappoint-css.live.com/MwsSignUp/eval.aspx). Once you have you will need to set your username and password in Form1.cs. change private string myUserName and private string myPassword appropriately. Make sure you can connect to the internet on your emulator or physical device before trying this example. The code is configured to search European maps only. You will need to change the string NavTech.EU to an appropriate value depending on where you are in the world. The various datasources and their functionalities are list here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc534855.aspx . Please be aware what you can search for will change depending on what datasource you use. This code has only been tested to work in London UK.

I am having trouble with the link: (http://mappoint-css.live.com/MwsSignUp)
I get the error: The page must be viewed over a secure channel... adding https did not help. Removing the "MwsSignUp" does not help.
I finally got this page to load: https://mappoint-css.live.com/MwsSignUp/eval.aspx
