Test Project - Restore Packages

Trying to use Xamarin.Forms.Maps.Geolocator inside of a Xamarin.Forms.PCL project does not work for Android project. I realize I may be doing something wrong but I couldn't find any documentation on it. The same calls work fine in the iOS projects. 

To reproduce:

1. Open test project
2. Launch the Android  project

Expected result: app will print the latitude and longitude of the supplied address to the console
Actual result: app hangs without UI ever being presented.

3. launch the iOS project and you should see the latitude and longitude printed to the console after the map is displayed.
4. comment out the following method call in App.cs GetMainPage method:
GetLocationFromAddress("1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Wahington DC");
5. Launch the Android app.

Expected result: Latitude and Longitude will be printed to the console (map may or not display depending on whether you enter a valid Google Maps API key.)
Actual result: as expected.

Note: To reduce the size of the test project, I deleted the packages so they will need to be restored when you open the solution.
