Google Maps support

 

 

Hi,

 

I have started developing my first web application in blackberry.. I want to implement google maps in my web application.

Does os 5.0 browser  support google dynamic maps.?

 

if 5.0 os does'nt support. will   latest os version 6.0 browser support google dynamic maps?

 

can any one specify some resources for embedding google dynamic maps in blackberry web application

 

 

 

i am using os 5.0.

 

Thanks and regards,

Hi,

Re: Google Maps support

Hi guys,

 

You can find all info about Google Static Maps API here:

 

http://code.google.com/intl/en/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/

 

All you need to do is use a <img src="STATIC_URL" /> tag where source is a pre formatted URL with any given parameters. And don't forget to add http://*.google.com to the permissions list.

 

Have fun,
