New BlackBerry maps on OS 7.1

I have some issues coming in the new BB map for OS 7.1. I am invoking BB map from my application to show route  to a particular location from my current location. When it is launched, its showing a message that "There are no deals available in this area" . From some reviews about the new OS 7.1 update I got to know that now on BB maps discounts, coupons etc from nearby vendors are displaying as a default feature of it. Can this feature be disabled?

For my application, this feature is a bit annoying and I want to remove it. There is not much help available from anywhere regarding this.

 

Anyone please provide me some input regarding this new feature. 

Please use plain text.

Hi jayakrishnan_salim,

 

I am also facing the same problem. Did you ever find a solution to this problem? Can that feature be disabled?

 

Thank you very much indeed

Hi,

 

I could not disable that feature. What I did was, I used Google maps application which is downloadable and used it to show the route by passing source and destination lattitudes and longitudes from my application.
