problems invoking maps from Blackberry API 4.7.x

Invoking the maps application on APIs 4.6 and 4.7 (below) produces a runtime error on the device simulator.  This is an acknowledged error (see here for example), but I haven't seen a definitive resolution.  I have two questions:


1) Is this just a problem with the simulator? (ie, would the map work correctly on an actual Storm device?)

2) If the issue has, as suggested, been resolved in release, is there a location where this update can be downloaded?  The current link on the blackberry download site still points to version



Invoke.invokeApplication( Invoke.APP_TYPE_MAPS, new MapsArguments(MapsArguments.ARG_LOCATION_DOCUMENT, _route));



Thank you,

Re: problems invoking maps from Blackberry API 4.7.x



I use the api blackberry.invoke to display an address on the mapping.


function mapLocation(lat, lon)


var args = new blackberry.invoke.MapsArguments(lat, lon); blackberry.invoke.invoke(blackberry.invoke.APP_MAPS, args);



my problem I can find the address but when I display mapping is encrypted on the maps displayed


I inserted  Google Maps API Key! but it's the same.
