I've heard only Placemark tags will be supported (POI locations).

Tried anything with Placemark tags? I tried using webview and the result view is a mess (actual HTML viewed on desktop browser is alright).

Re: Drawing 'KML' coordinates (lat & lon) on Mapview

LocationMapInvoker has the ability to parse KML format content and view location on map.

also BB_CASCADES_MAPS_EXPORT bb::cascades::maps:Smiley Very HappyataProvider *convertKmlContentToDataProvider (const QString &kmlContent), can convert KML to data provider.

But I can not find the declaration of convertKmlContentToDataProvider
