Re: Maps Overlay

If you press I or O to zoom in or out, which dismisses the text on the screen the trackball does respond.

Re: Maps Overlay

I think you need to pass the call for the navigationMovement from the parent field manager.

Re: Maps Overlay

From the discussion above I got the point that we cannot change the color of Map pin (overlay) which is displayed.

The default implementation (red) remains fix. while using Blackberry Maps.


My question is can we change the number which shows up over the pin or do we have control over the numbers.
