| | Blackberry Java Application with Google Maps
Please Login to Remove!
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:
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)
- 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!
