    <Style x:Key="PointItemStyle" TargetType="Maps:MapItem">
        <Setter Property="helper:BindingHelper.LocationPath" Value="Location"/>
        <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black"/>
        <Setter Property="Template">
                <ControlTemplate TargetType="Maps:MapItem">
                    <Canvas PointerMoved="Pushpin_PointerMoved">
                            <Path Fill="GreenYellow" Stroke="Green" StrokeThickness="2">
                                    <EllipseGeometry RadiusX="8" RadiusY="8"/>
                            <Rectangle x:Name="labelBackground" Fill="White" Opacity="0.7"/>
                            <TextBlock Margin="2,0,2,0" Text="{Binding DisplayName}"/>

    private void Pushpin_PointerMoved(object sender, PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
        var pointerPosition = e.GetCurrentPoint(PlanningMapControl);
        var point = e.GetCurrentPoint((UIElement)sender);
        if (point.Properties.IsLeftButtonPressed)
            Location location = PlanningMapControl.ViewportPointToLocation(pointerPosition.Position);
                PushpinViewModels.Pushpins[index].Location = location;}}
Why is this wrong? Is there any good way? thank you very much!

The PointerMoved event should not be handled on an element inside the item container's visual tree, because the item container is itself moving around (to the item's Location). Handle the event on an element outside of the MapItemsControl.

Very grateful to ClemensF, I am a beginner, the following is the call to the map of XAML:
    <Maps:Map x:Name="PlanningMapControl" TileLayer="{Binding [OpenStreetMap], Source={StaticResource TileLayers}}" 
              MinZoomLevel="2" ZoomLevel="5" ManipulationMode="All" Loaded="PlanningMapControl_Loaded" Tapped="PlanningMapControl_MapTapped" >

            <Maps:MapItemsControl ItemsSource="{x:Bind PushpinViewModels.Pushpins}" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource PointItemStyle}"/>


How should I modify it? Can I provide some code? thank you very much!
