UIPanGestureRecognizer on MKMapView?

Ok, because no one knew, I had to spent one Apple technical support consult for it. ;o)

Because MKMapView evidently has its own recognizers to interact with user, you have to adhere to the UIGestureRecognizerDelegate protocol and implement (BOOL)gestureRecognizer:shouldRecognizeSimultaneouslyWithGestureRecognizer: like this:

- (void)viewDidLoad
    UIPanGestureRecognizer *panGesture = [[UIPanGestureRecognizer alloc] initWithTarget:self action:@selector(showPan)];
    panGesture.delegate = self;
    [appDelegate.mapView addGestureRecognizer:panGesture];
    [panGesture release];

- (void)showPan

- (BOOL)gestureRecognizer:(UIGestureRecognizer *)gestureRecognizer shouldRecognizeSimultaneouslyWithGestureRecognizer:(UIGestureRecognizer *)otherGestureRecognizer {   
    return YES;

Then it works like a charm.
