Google map positioning with Google Maps API V3

I am working on a mobile web app that displays  a google map using Google Maps API V3. However, when it's viewed on blackberry the coordinates I have given when creating the map are not what is displayed. 

 

For example I set my center to be 46.4633, -80.9706 but on blackberry the center is around 46.4582, -80.976

 

I have defined the center as:

 

        var mapOptions = {

          center: new google.maps.LatLng(46.4633, -80.9706),

          streetViewControl: false,

          zoom: 14,

          mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

 

Has anyone had similar issues or a possible solution?

Hi Juliia,

 

What device/OS version have you tested this with? I tried the following example and it works as intended on a BB10 Dev Alpha https://google-developers.appspot.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/map-coordinates

It was tested with version 7 of the OS, people who will be using the app will probably have 7 or lower.

Re: Google map positioning with Google Maps API V3

Are you packaging this into a WebWorks app? Or is this a mobile site that users will visit using their devices?

For now just the mobile web that any phone can access. In the future I'm hoping to have it with WebWorks.

 

EDIT: I have tested it with the dev of OS 10 and it works perfectly.
