you can show a location in googlemaps, see http://www.blackberryforums.com/developer-forum/14
more complex tasks, however, did not succeed yet as far as i know. you'd have to know the google apps start parameters for more information about it.

I think you will find a lot of posts according to the "Google Maps" topic.
Extra: Google Maps don't have any public API and you can invoke them with a specific XML to show only one location on them (it's not documented feature and was discovered after reverse engineering).

Oh but there is an official public API to show a particular location, placemarks, etc. - it's the Google Static Maps API:
It's very easy to use. You simply format a URL, request it, and you get back a PNG image that you can display in your app. One legal issue to be aware of is that you are only supposed to use images generated in this way in a web page.
