Use bookmarks

ArcGIS for Windows Phone supports two kinds of bookmarks: map bookmarks, which are included when the map is authored and only available in particular maps, and app bookmarks, which are created while using the app and are available across all maps. Both of these types of bookmarks serve the same purpose: to make it easy for you to navigate to areas of interest in an open map by going to the location saved in a bookmark. In addition to using bookmarks, the app also allows you to create and manage app bookmarks.
