Does google map work on blackberry widget?



Hi All,


I didnt find any topics relevant with my question, so i post this new thread. I am wondering if we can use the google map api javascript within a blackberry widget app? I tried using the google map api v2, but it sends me exception:



ReferenceError: "GBrowserIsCompatible" is not defined.


I tried than using the static google map and it works on my simulator.



Thanks for any respond.

Hi ben,


In 5.0 I haven't seen an example where the google dynamic map API works.  In most scenarios people use the static maps.


You an also launch BlackBerry maps and plot routes and points of interest from a widget.
