To get maps working we use the Google Play Services component - see https://components.xamarin.com/gettingstarted/googleplayservices for how get started on this.
For demos in the video, I use a real device - sorry for the bad camera work!
If you want to try to get maps working on an emulator, then I recommend you take a look at http://www.genymotion.com/ - although I don't think this plays nicely with the WP8 emulator or with the Intel HAXM driver either :(
The source code for today is on: https://github.com/slodge/NPlus1DaysOfMvvmCross/tree/master/N-40-Maps
Sorry again about the demos by hand rather than in a simulator - and for the pauses while I gather my thoughts each time :)
