internal const string Id = "type your Private Key"; 

In MainPage.Xaml add Maps Control & Add the corresponding Maps data-binding:
<my:Map Name="Map" Height="756" Width="480" CredentialsProvider="{Binding CredentialsProvider}" 
CopyrightVisibility="Collapsed" LogoVisibility="Collapsed" ZoomLevel="{Binding Zoom,Mode=TwoWay}" 
Center="{Binding Center,Mode=TwoWay}">

                <my:AerialMode ShouldDisplayLabels="True" />

            <Button x:Name="ButtonZoomIn" 
                    Style="{StaticResource ButtonZoomInStyle}"
                    HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top"
                Height="56" Width="56" Margin="8,180,0,0"  Click="ButtonZoomIn_Click"/>

        <Button x:Name="ButtonZoomOut" 
                Style="{StaticResource ButtonZoomOutStyle}"
                HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="56" Width="56" 
Margin="8,260,0,0" Click="ButtonZoomOut_Click" />


in Code-Behind add: 
private double _zoom;

        private const double DefaultZoomLevel = 18.0;
        private const double MaxZoomLevel = 21.0;
        private const double MinZoomLevel = 1.0;
        private static readonly GeoCoordinate DefaultLocation = new GeoCoordinate(47.639631, -122.127713);
        private GeoCoordinate _center;


        #region Fields

        private readonly CredentialsProvider _credentialProvider = new ApplicationIdCredentialsProvider(App.Id);

        #region Properties

        /// <summary>
        /// Gets or sets the map zoom level.
        /// </summary>
        public double Zoom
            get { return _zoom;}
                var coercedZoom = System.Math.Max(MinZoomLevel, System.Math.Min(MaxZoomLevel, value));
                if (_zoom != coercedZoom)
                    _zoom = value;

 public CredentialsProvider CredentialsProvider
            get { return _credentialProvider; }

// To change the map-mode from Aerial View to Road View:
private void ChangeMapMode()
            // TODO : Change map view mode.
            if (Map.Mode is AerialMode)
                Map.Mode = new RoadMode();
                Map.Mode = new AerialMode(true);
