How to use MapView in BB?

Hi, is the only way to use/replace the MapView in a Android app the Google Maps Java API?

Plase "+Like" my post if it was helpful.

Hello,

 

The Android Runtime supports location based intents to display Google Maps via web intents or instantiate a WebView and load the URL of the Google Maps mobile website. For more details on mapping support, check out the API Support page.
