Porting Android application to Blackberry

I have a neat application that shows local ATM's built for Android 2.3.3 and 4.2.2 I wan't to port it BB 10.2 I followed the process but i encounter problem as my application relies heavily on GoogleMaps V2 API. Mainly do to the fact that BB10 does not have GooglePlayServices installed is there  a way to get GPServices running on or a workaround to get GoogleMaps V2 API working.

Re: Porting Android application to Blackberry

i would suggest you post in the android board:

afaik only v1 of google maps is supported. i heard bbry is working to support v2 or to replace the api calls with open street map or the like, but so far this is not in the OS.
Maybe you can use OSM yourself on a branch?
