Use Blackberry maps to point 2 or more locations

Hi ,

  I am  tryin to point 2 or more locations in the map with a bitmap image of a Pin on it. I am working on api 5


 I have  tried the following methods but not obtained complete success


1. Invoked the BB maps and passed few location s in the location document as follows:


StringBuffer stringBuffer =

new StringBuffer("<lbs clear='ALL'>");


"<location lon='-7418493' lat='40691241'label='Loc1, NJ' description='Newark' zoom='14' />");


"<location lon='-738071880956979' lat='40.6573430722829' label='Loc2, NY' description='JFK' zoom='14'/>");





APP_TYPE_MAPS, new MapsArguments( MapsArguments.ARG_LOCATION_DOCUMENT, stringBuffer.toString()));


 This  only displays ottawa or world view all the time Smiley Sad(((


2.created a manager using mapfield to map multiple points, this  too works only for  few and not for all



Please  guide me regarding this, I  have tried so many things but still not nailed the right thing.

Thanks in advance
