the blackberry has an api for BB maps.
the google maps application does not offer an API, so if you want to use with gmaps you'll have to use the browserfield most likely. see numerous other threads about it.

Sure BB have its api for its inbuilt maps....but they donot offer their services in entire globe..means that they only show a few countries in their maps....thats why i used Gmaps........i was asking that whether there is any way to create a pin to be accessed in maps or not???

I have never used Gmaps so sorry I can't help.  However since you are using Gmaps, would it not be appropriate to ask Google rather than here?
