I have an Android app that I want to make available to BlackBerry 10 users by porting for the BB Android Runtime. The only stumbling block is my Android app uses Google Maps API (com.google.android.maps) which the runtime doesn't support. The map screen is only a small feature of the app and I'm happy to disable it for BlackBerry users, but is this possible? I don't want to maintain two copies of the application, can I somehow code the one app so that the conversion to BAR works but the maps are still available on Android? I've made sure the reference to the maps API in the Android manifest has the tag required="false", and check in my code if maps are available on the device but this doesn't seem to be enough. The compatibility checker lists every line in every source code file where I reference a map object.
Any help appreciated,

No, it's not going to work. Save yourself time trying to find a fix, and just copy your project to a new one and make the needed changes for blackberry. If you are using source control, then you can try branching off for that probject.

android google maps api v2 is not supported by BB10. try to make it in webworks.
Not sure what you meant with webworks. Wouldn't you still need Google Maps API with that? Or did you mean, use a Blackberry Maps solution inside a webworks environment?
