I use the api blackberry.invoke to display an address on the mapping.
function mapLocation(lat, lon)
var args = new blackberry.invoke.MapsArguments(lat, lon); blackberry.invoke.invoke(blackberry.invoke.APP_MAP
my problem I can find the address but when I display mapping is encrypted on the maps displayed
I inserted Google Maps API Key! but it's the same

Are you trying to invoke the BlackBerry Maps application or the Google Maps application? I couldn't quite make out why you would need the Google Maps API key?

I want to invoke the BlackBerry Maps, you're right I do not need a key, but the problem the maps do not show I'm afraid there is a problem in the emulator.
What should I do ??

Which tools are you using to build your BlackBerry widget?
- Visual Studio Plug-in
- Eclipse Plug-in
- Standalone SDK
If it is the Standalone SDK, do you also have the MDS server running providing connectivity to the simulator?
Which Model number and OS version are you running in your Simulator?

I use BlackBerry Web Plug-in
Yes, i running the MDS-CS program along with the simulator.
I think that emulators version 5.0.0.x have a problem because with the emulator version 4.7.x I get posted the maps, see the picture attached.
I can not test my code on emulators version 4.7.x because I use the OS v 5.
you have a solution to propose me ?

I'm really late to the party here but I've just discovered that in the simulator, when involking maps, all I was seeing was a gray screen - no detail. As it turned out it was because maps was super-zoomed in (over a grey patch, of which there appears to be plenty). Zooming out revealed more detail.
Be warned though because the maps simulator appears rather buggy. I got this message when zooming out to level 4 or 5 (and also when searching for a city)
