Anyone developing BlackBerry apps on here ?

I want to write an App that gets the current GPS information, and then shows it as a dot on someone elses' google map.  Does anyone have any ideas as to how to do this ?

  

I know how to make a GPS call, but sending the information, and displaying it on a map isn't readily apparent.

 

thanks in advance,

I would like to do this with my 8700 as well.

Have you checked out the new MapField class in the 4.5 API?

You could probably override some functions to draw circles and such in certain locations.  Check out the BlackBerryMessenger APIs for exchanging data between the two devices.
