Does anybody know how to use TileLayer with google maps?

I know how to use bing maps, open street, but not yet google maps. Can somebody share example code please?

Thank you for you help

There is no specific support for it but it can be configured. You need to fake the user agent and referer so it is not usable in a professional application.

string userAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20080404 Firefox/"; 
string referer = "http://maps.google.com/maps";
var request = new BasicRequest("http://khm0.google.com/kh/v=60&x={1}&s=&y={2}&z={0}&s=");
ITileSource tileSource = new TileSource(new WebTileProvider(request, userAgent, referer, false), new SphericalMercatorInvertedWorldSchema());
