Google Maps is not working in BB OS 7

Hi,

 

I have been doing a project in which I need to show the route to a particular location from my current location on a Google map. What I am currently doing is, I am appending source and destination latitudes and longitudes as parameters to Google maps URL (http://maps.google.com/?saddr=43.6775,-80.7339&daddr=34.5008311,-117.1858759&output=embed) and showing it on a BlackBerry browser. It was working fine for my 9800 Torch device and all of the OS 6 devices.

 

But when I tested on 9850 (OS 7) device, the map was not loading. Just a Google logo at the bottom with  zoom in and out buttons, but it wasn't working either. When I tested on other OS 7 simulators, I saw the same problem in all models. Does anyone having the same problem? Can anyone please help me in resolving this issue?

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

I couldn't find any solution for that. So I used BlackBerry maps for OS 7 devices.
