Default Google Static Maps not showing on website

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

My company has developed a web app for property and we're finding that some Blackberry users are not able to see the Google static maps we've added to the website. Here is an example of a map URL that doesn't display:

maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?format=jpg&sensor=true&size=480x320&mark ers=color:green|label:X|51.041892,-3.933652&markers=color:red|label:1|50.98036,-3.9546&markers=color:red|label:2|50.99174,-3.9996&markers=color:red|label:3|50.99757,-4.01225&markers=color:red|label:4|51.06509,-4.03534&markers=color:red|label:5|51.05565,-4.04793&markers=color:red|label:6|51.03967,-4.06066&markers=color:red|label:7|50.99297,-4.05234&markers=color:red|label:8|51.06782,-4.07867&markers=color:red|label:9|51.04471,-4.09381&markers=icon:http%3a%2f%2fbar.forwardslash mobile.co.uk%2fImages%2f10.png|51.11122,-4.07503

Initially I thought it was the length of the URL, around 600 chars, however maps with only 100 chars don't display either. This problem can be viewed on the following website with a BB Curve 8900:

m.webbers.co.uk

The maps are displayed on all other handsets we've tested e.g. iPhone, Android handsets, Nokia etc.

Can anyone advise what the issue is?

Thanks in advance,

Default

Found out at the trouble is with the "|" character in the URL which is a delimiter with Google static maps. Technically the "|" character should be URL encoded and the early BB models are strict about this.
