Re: use of maps in our app...

Hi vishal_01,

What you may want to start with is https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/ as it has many samples using Google Maps API.

While it may not be BlackBerry specific, it is using web technologies, so bringing it over to BlackBerry shouldn't be too difficult. The biggest problem I see is, if you rely on the Google API's being hosted @ Google, your application would require a network connection in order to function (which...truth be told, you would need anyway, since the user would need to download maps, etc.)

Hope this helps!

We actually have a Maps sample app which uses Google, Bing, and more!


It's hosted in our GitHub repository: https://github.com/blackberry/BB10-WebWorks-Samples/tree/master/Maps
