Location Symbol with custom LocationDataSource

Racking my brain on this an hoping someone has some insight.


I am using a custom LocationDataSource developed to use with specific GPS units.  When the custom LocationDataSource is attached to the MapView.LocationDisplay.DataSource the symbol is grey instead of the blue symbol that should be shown.  I cannot figure out why this is.  I have looked at the symbol definitions for the symbols on the LocationDisplay and they look the same in both cases.


       CustomLocationDataSource                    SystemLocationDataSource


I have gone so far as to reload the symbols after copying the ones defined by the LocationDisplay when it uses the SystemLocationDataSource, including loading the image stored in the API resources.  Nothing I do seems to get me the blue symbol. 


What am I missing?
