I am developing a website which user is able to view Google map(Google Map API v2) and data which is represented by KML in BB Browser.
With desktop browser (IE 8, Google Chrome), the Google map and KML can be loaded successfully.
However, by using BB Browser, only Google map can be loaded. The KML data doesnt overlay on the map.
Do anyone face the same problem or solve it before? or i miss out something?
I am using BB Storm simulator 22.214.171.124 and BB MDS service simulator 4.1.4.

I've been trying to do the same thing (makes Google Maps API v2/v3 works on my Storm 9530 with the Blackberry Browser) without any success. Nothing is displayed when I access the Google Maps API from the Blackberry browser.
Are you saying you are able to see the maps on the Blackberry browser when using the Google Maps API?
The official response from the Google Support was to use the Google Maps Static API v2 instead, found here:
Not great... but at least a static map can be displayed.
As for KML files, I've been able to make them works by calling a URL to my KML file hosted on a web server from my Blackberry browser. With my Storm 9530, it displays the KML file using Blackberry Maps... with my Curve 8330, I receive an error ("The item you selected cannot be displayed. Do you wish to save the item?").
I also found this trick from the Google web site:
It doesn't seem to work though when I use something like "http://maps.google.com/?q=[URL TO KML FILE]".
It does work on my deskop and my iPhone though.
Still trying to find a solution to this as well...
