I'd like to have a page on my Blackberry app where the user can drop a marker on a map (Google map most likely) and the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of the marker will be retrieved.
I have looked into the Google Static Maps API but this returns an image, with no option for placing markers and getting their coordinates back from Google.
I also looked at getting the coordinates of a point on a static map from the pixel locations look here, but this is very involved and the different screen sizes of Blackberry phones will each need different calculations.
EDIT: I am developing the app for Blackberry OS version 4.5, or 5.0 if necessary.
Any help is appreciated.
