Re: HTML5 App - Google Maps not loading on a Real BlackBerry Deice

Hi there,

 

In short, I can't recommend the Google Maps APIs on BBOS (5, 6, 7) devices; but there are a number of options out there:

From what I've seen, PlayBook does behave better, and BB10 should continue that trend. The underlying architecture of the QNX platform is completely different from BBOS, so those memory issues at the root of the problem don't transfer over.
