How to set icon for Google Map maker?

In the webmapview example it sets the Google map marker icon with

 

local:///assets/images/on_map_pin.png

 

I want to set my own icon stored on the device or sd card.

 

I have tried

 

file:///accounts/1000/shared/documents/on_map_pin.png

 

and it does work.

Re: How to set icon for Google Map maker?

Yes.  It works fine with BlackBerry Map.

 

I read that Google Map marker icon path only accepts URL http:// type and does not work for URI file://

 

Is this correct?
