I've been wodnering if there's a way for using maps in Blackberry 10 application? To my surprise there's a very little amount of technical information regrading maps features on developer.blackberry.com.
If I want to develop an application that intensively uses map layers coupled with geolocation feature what level of support I may expect? At the current moment, not to mention lack of documentation related to this functionality there're also few samples in public GitHub Blackberry repos which shall demostrate available functional. However, none of them works. Neither mapview, nor routing or all other feature seems to work as it's meant to be. Also, I couldn't find a Maps API milestone in the public roadmap published on the Blackberry site.
So, my question here is there a way of using maps facility on Blackberry 10 (native or webworks, doesn't matter) now? If yes, where I can find workign samples and/or documentation for the API available? And if no, when it will be available and which maps vendor we may expect here?
Solved! Go to Solution.

What about geolocation? Is it fully available on WebWorks? Also, can you add layers to the map, display and reposition POIs and do all other things with them like fetching particular location from the point where user tapped and so on?

It won't auto-locate you, but there are APIs for that. Take a look at https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Samples/tre
Here's what the gMaps API can do https://developers.google.com/maps/mobile-apps
