Xamarin iOS Navigate to Settings

I have been trying to find a way to navigate to navigate from an Application to the Settings preferences for the Application.

I have tried the following, yet unfortunately it does error.

var root = new UINavigationController ();
root.PushViewController (new Uri ("prefs:root=General"), true);

When trying this, I did believe it would error as it should be used to Navigate to an already made view.

Is there anyway I am able to navigate to the settings application as required via the use of Xamarin C#?

Sorry, you can't. Apple disabled the ability to do this in iOS 5.1.

The only option is creating your own preferences UI and displaying that instead.

Edit: as of iOS 8, you can take the user direct to your app's preferences:

UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl(new NSUrl(UIApplication.OpenSettingsUrlString))
