Mike Williams has a great resource for using the Google Maps API. On his site I found images of all the available icons used with Google Earth.

As Mike states, each icon is a 32x32 pixel PNG and each icon has it's own shadow image PNG which is 59x32 pixels where icon0.png has a shadow image called icon0s.png

Of course you can use your own images but if you want to keep some consistency here they are:

You cannot arbitrarily change the Target Framework in Smart Device Projects like you can for standard .NET projects.
You need to upgrade the project via the Project->Upgrade Project option like so:

The project will then be compiled against the latest version of Compact Framework, here it is 3.5 for my machine.

Note:- you may need to change the available devices/emulators by choosing 'Change Target Platform' from the same menu.
