My app already uses GeoCoordinateWatcher, would there be a way of passing reference to the existing, running instance?

You could set ARDisplay.LocationEnabled = false. Then just update ARDisplay.Location manually whenever you want.

That worked well.

If anyone goes that way, remember to set initial ARDisplay.Location, as there is no way of telling when/if next position changed update will arraive.

Really good point. Especially since world projection doesn't happen until there is a valid location and things show up all clumped together on the map. Wonder if there's a smart way of dealing with that...
