BB Map application + compatibility + invoke

I have following queries related to BB Map application.

 

1. On which devices BB Map application comes by default ? Is there any compatibility matrix ?

 

 

2. On which device BB Map application can be invoked and with what all kinds of arguments ?

 

 

3. Is there any way this default BB Map application installation be overridden by the service provider ?

 

 

It seems that BB Map application can be download separately for 4.1 and above devices ? Can it be invoked as well ?

Re: BB Map application + compatibility + invoke

 At the discretion of the carrier. For example, AT&T removes Maps from their distro.

 

2. On which device BB Map application can be invoked and with what all kinds of arguments ?

 

It can always be invoked, see the Invoke and ApplicationArguments classes in the javadocs. The application is in the default distro since 4.2.1, but may be removed by the carrier.

 

3. Is there any way this default BB Map application installation be overridden by the service provider ?

 

Yes, see #1

Yes.
