Correct. MapField is being suggested as a workaround for the 4.6 issue where the Invoke API is failing with a RuntimeException.
As for landmarks, as you indicated, you would need to draw them to the map yourself, switching between world and field coordinates using convertWorldToField(). Calls to Locator.geocode() will also assist with mapping your landmarks.

i'm having the same issue running on BB9800 sim.
the following from OS6 docs does not work on the sim
Example 1: Invoke BlackBerry Map with Local search parameters:
MapsArguments mapsArgs = new MapsArguments(MapsArguments.ARG_LOCAL_SEARCH, "hotel", "Ottawa");
gives illegalThread error
