Google Maps

I've developed an app for 9860 (main target) and I'm having troubles to show google maps inside a browserfield as in the device browser.

The main problem is that I've already created the maps with the info and when I open in the browser, after loading, I can only see the zoom controls of the map but no images.

 

Here is a demo map: http://maps.google.com.ar/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=es&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=112705064587796032608.0004960be0b...

 

Does anybody have experience with BB and Google Maps or know how to solve this problem?

Re: Google Maps

simple solution: on the BB, use BB maps (and it's API)

as for a browserfield: if it does not work, there is very little you can do. you can try with different parameters of http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/7.1.0api/net/rim/device/api/browser/field2/BrowserFieldCon... , maybe one of them helps

Re: Google Maps

I have all the maps loaded with info in google maps (many maps like the example) and this app must be also available on playbook and web. That is why I choose google maps instead of BB Maps.
