Re: how to integrate map

welcome to the support forums.

head over to developer.blackberry.com, it should offer all you need to get started.

you have two options basically:
- use bb maps, they have an API
- use google maps or something else, they don't have an API on the device but can be used via web API.

Re: how to integrate map

search the forum, it was discussed quite often. basically you use their web services API.

only blackberry maps offers an API on the device.

Re: how to integrate map

I did a quick search and found code samples for Google Maps - I suggest you search again.

 

Regarding BB Map, start here:

Re: how to integrate map

Hello,

 

For map application you can look into Sample folder in Blackberry JDE components. you can found this sample Eclipse folder. net.rim.ejde.componentpack6.0.0_6.0.0.43 is backberry os 6 support.

 

Eclipse\plugins\net.rim.ejde.componentpack6.0.0_6.0.0.43\components\samples\com\rim\samples\device

 

Regards,
