Default Blackberry Java Application with Google Maps

Please Login to Remove!

Hello Everybody,

I am working on a BlackBerry application where we need to show multiple pin point markers on Google Maps, with custom values in the marker description. I have searched the forums for the same and what I understand as of now is that there isn't much support for Google Maps with BlackBerry APIs and the only way to get the Google Maps is the hack mentioned here:
blackberryforums.com/developer-forum/143263-heres-how-start-google-maps-landmark.html

But the post seem to be really old, has things changed since then?
To enlist we want following features:

- Multiple Pin Point Markers simultaneously
- Custom Labels for these markers (Links to start new java events, address)
- Directions
- Zoom Feature
- Pan Feature

Also is it possible that our application automatically downloads Google Maps if they are already not installed?

I consider Google Static Map APIs as well, but as the name suggest they are static and we need zoom/pan feature. Any clues on getting this dynamic?

Is BB Maps the way forward for us? Please throw in ideas.

Thanks in advance!
