Google Maps API v2

Hi !

 

As Google just released its new Google Maps API, I wondered if it was compatible with Blackberry 10.

 

Thanks

Re: Google Maps API v2

I'm not really an expert, but http://developer.blackberry.com/android/apisupport/unsupportedapi_blackberry10_software_features.htm... lists the whole com.google.android.maps package as "unsupported", so I guess Google Maps API v2 won't be available.

As described here, http://developer.android.com/google/play-services/setup.html Maps V2 heavily relies on Google Play Services APK, which I am pretty sure BB10 doesn't have.

No google maps android Api v2 is not supported by BB 10. Use google maps javascript Api v3 in webworks platform.

"Use google maps javascript Api v3 in webworks platform" => So that means no solution for Android Runtime Development ?
