One of our customer is facing issue with Xamarin.Forms.Maps in Android.
Even though the bug https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=25055 fixes the issue of Maps getting reset,
the pins still keeps on flickering.
The issue is reproducible in the sample given here
I have the same problem. Maps are basically useless because of it.

This is still reproducible as of Forms 1.3 stable.
Fixed in next pre-release
As of 188.8.131.5294-pre1 this is still not fixed. The problem is clearly with the implementation of Xamarin.Forms.Maps.Android.MapRenderer.OnCollectionChanged(object sender, NotifyCollectionChangedEventArgs notifyCollectionChangedEventArgs) which forces recreation of all markers on every change so when you create 50 markers this 50 removals of all markers and 50 additions of all added markers so far.
Just to be diligent about record-keeping, I'll note that 184.108.40.20694-pre1 was released on December 24, before the fix was applied. If any users see the problem after the next prerelease, be sure to let us know. Thanks!
I apologize, I somehow thought you posted it on December 22nd, not 26th. Makes perfect sense now.
@Vladislav, no worries. Better safe than sorry :)
