Dropbox, kml and google maps



   I generate a KML from GPS sampled points now I want to show a map with Placemarkers and the path


  -  the BB maps I think is a no go as I hear not pretty things about it so I don't think it's worth it going that way

 - Other option I see is use some javascript to use google API's kinda fine but still not sure if google is ok with this if I was to sell the App.

  - The dropbox option seems fine and it is KISS technology, put the KML in the Public dropbox grab the URL and fire a browser with the URL to the KML and googlemaps does its magic and it works like a charm, but now how do I retrieve that dropbox URL if a user is running my App, oAuth is one way I tried it on android but is a bit cumbersome  is there something better for the BB10 somewhere???? I'm looking still havent found anything about it. Any pointers????
