I am looking into porting a C++/Qt application to BB 10.
Now I see that QtLocation is only implemented in a subset: https://github.com/blackberry/QtLocationSubset
I need QLandmarks eccessively and dont think I easily can get around that. Is there a way around those missing libraries? Could I use/compile my own Qt version?
Will the Subset sometimes get completed?

I'd have to double check for the specific Qt libiray compatibitly with NDK but you can compile and run Qt applications on BlackBerry 10. The link below would help you to bring your Qt application to the BlackBerry 10 platform. It talks about different porting options for Qt code based applications.

Thank you for looking into this.
I will have a look on the mentioned präsentation.
I am able to compile simple C++/Qt project with QtCreator and also to upload and run them on the simulator.
For that I am using the Qt version installed with the NDK (4.8.3).
If I understand (qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-Creator-with-BlackBerry-10) right, I also can compile and use my own Qt version.
So I compiled my own Qt 4.8.3 + qnx-qt-mobility according to http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building-Qt4-for-Blackb
This works without issues, but still misses the QLocation library.
So I thought about integrating it from http://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qtlocation, but I could not to figure out how to do that. I guess I would have to modify some config or makefiles.
It would be great if you could guide me how to solve this challenge.

It's recommended that you use the Geographic classes and its sub-classes.
Hope this helps.
