    Issue with display map marker in real device

    Hi all,
    Currently, I'am developing an app that displaying my location and others people's location in the map through markers on Nokia WRT. My app works fine on simulator but it can't display in real device. I use the ovi map API for display markers. This is link API:
    http://api.maps.ovi.com/devguide/getting_started.html
    Does anyone have that problem? Anyone have solution for that?.
    Thanks.

    its not designed to be used with mobile devices generally. Thus you should opt for for Map IMAGE API instead: http://projects.developer.nokia.com/ovimapsrenderingapi

    Note also that there are dedicated section in this discussion baord for each separate location API we have, and you should use those for maps & location specific questions.

    Hi symbianyucca,
    Sorry if I post my question in wrong place. But it's urgent.
    You mean that ovi map API are not designed for mobile devices. Can you tell me the API that can help me. I have used Nokia Map API, but it's not able to show map and markers on real device.
    For MAP IMAGE API, I can't use image of map because I have to click markers and show popup.
    Thanks

    For WRT we don't really have any good options for interactive Maps, anyway, if you are using only one marker with each map view, the MAP IMAGE API works just fine. Basically just get static image without any additional things, in which your POI is in the middle, then just add your own image on top of the map image inside your application, and you indeed have nicely clickable custom marker in the map.

    FYI, if you're having problem with Google Maps API and Nokia Maps API on WRT based apps, I'd suggest to use OpenLayers. It works on my N97 although a bit slow. There's an OpenLayers Mobile but I haven't tested it yet.
