    Launching Map apps

    Hi,

    Can anyone please let me know how to launch map applications like Nokia maps / Google maps from my application? Also I would like to know the parameters like address, longitude, latitude, zoom, etc which can be passed while launching the applications.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you can't use the Nokia maps since they are not public..But the wiki has code snippets to show google maps on mobile..

    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...Api_in_Symbian
    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...e_applications

    have a look and the need for location data is based on ur appln design and requirements..

    Thanks for the response.

    Assumming I have the required data like latitude / longitude / address, I wish to launch application using their corresponding UIDs. The problems I have are
    1. Where to get UIDs of Nokia and Google map apps
    2. Which parameters to pass while launching these apps?

    AFAIK you might not pass messages to these application.
    Also to get the UID try searching the wiki for the code which lists all the installed applications from that code you can find out the UID

    Basically Nokia Maps as it is currently, does not offer any public interface for 3rd party applciation to use, so all you can do, is to launch it, and let it handle the showing any data is wishes. But if you want to get a Map and put it in your own application, you could check the links given in the first reply.
