    Hello there, senthil_25!

    As you have tried it on the emulator, howabout did you deploy your app to device too - any experience on that and what would be the device you are using for this?

    For your interest meanwhile maybe, we are also offering a Maps solution by Nokia.

    Maybe you would like to have a look at the RESTful API of the Ovi Maps Rendering API, it could just maybe fit to your purposes very well?

    Have you checked that of our offering before? I am just curious =)

    Best,
    Marko

    Hi there,

    The Terms and Conditions as well as the app credentials related legal agreements basically state what you can do with the app you develop using the Location based APIs integrated.

    However, what you ask could definetly be described a more clearer way, so that one would know exactly what it means to publish an app to Ovi Store containing integrated map using our offerings, paid or free.

    I have made an inquiry about this and have been promised for a swift response. I will update this thread when I have the exact clause at hand.

    Best,
    Marko

    Hi,

    The answer is: you are allowed to charge for your app as long as our advertising is enabled.

    The usage is all explained and described in the following documents:

    Location API Business Models and Usage Restrictions


    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Develop/Web/Maps/Quota/

    And


    Location API FAQ


    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ation_APIs_FAQ


    Best Regards,
    Marko

    Re: Nokia with google maps

    Hi Marko,

    I am trying to develop map-based apps for S40.

    In this regard, I have been trying to play around with both Java ME Location API [ as a Java app ] and Ovi Maps Rendering API [ as a web app ].
    Can you let me know (if possible with a working example) whether Ovi Maps Rendering API can be used to animate navigation - such as the maps change dynamically automatically as the location changes or whether I can provide the current location as a layer on top of the route that renders dynamically as well ? Because of the real-time and interactive nature of the map app, I want to develop (where I can click on poi's, or map-zoom by tapping it twice etc), am wondering which one is better suited.
    Java ME Location along with Nokia Maps API provides me some flexibility in terms of these events [ map-zoom by tapping, click events on markers etc ].
    And as I understand Ovi Maps Rendering API delivers only static images at every (RESTful) request and do not have any dynamic or events interaction component associated with it after rendering on the mobile ? How can I use the touch-feature of the S40 to my advantage on the map with Ovi Maps Rendering API to provide a realistic animation just like what Google Dynamic Maps API provides ?

    I want to create this dynamic map app as a paid-app on Ovi Store and hence planning to use Nokia Location API ( Ovi Maps Rendering API or Java ME Location API + Nokia Maps API) instead of using Google Dynamic Maps API [ as they have restrictions using their Dynamic API for commercial purpose ]

    Appreciate your suggestions and advice.
