there is no way to integrate google maps into your own application, it is a third party app. you can either use blackberrymaps or contact google to ask them about it.

I guess this is a follow-up from your previous thread, "how to get lat/lon from a touch on google maps"?
Here is what you can do (based on my experience):
* You can launch Google Maps app from your BlackBerry app with a single "point of interest". You cannot get back a touch or a coordinate from the map.
* You can Invoke (see Invoke class) BlackberryMaps with a Location document, with multiple waypoints. You *can* get back the coordinates of the map by placing an ApplicaitonMenuItem on the map (see ApplicationMenuItem and ApplicationMenuItemRepository)
* You can use MapField in your Blackberry application, where you have complete control over the map image. Using this control, you can paint your own "points of interest" and determine the lat/log of a touch.
* There is also a Google Maps web service. I do not have any practical experience with it, but I did run across it doing some research for a project. You would have to go do your own reseach on this.
My advice: There is a MapfieldDemo program with the JDE that illustrates using MapField. I strongly suggest that you use it as a starting point.

I am using google static maps api for my application. You can refer this link to know on how to use it http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/sta
Google static maps api may not be a very good solution as it is not interactive.
Btwn is it possible to use Google maps installed on your mobile from your application?
