    I am trying to figure out how to format a URL on Google maps so that you can click on it and display the location on Google maps via the BB browser. The following example will work on a standard Explorer or Firefox browser but does not display on my BB.
    Does anyone know how to format a link so this location will display on a BB? Or does this format work for you?

    I have been trying to do this as well. As you say it woks with Explorer but not the moble version. Here is the code I use to grab weather.

    net.rim.blackberry.api.browser.Browser.getDefaultS ession().displayPage("http://m.wund.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?brand=mobile&query="+ currentLocation.getQualifiedCoordinates().getLatit ude() + "," + currentLocation.getQualifiedCoordinates().getLongi tude());

    I was trying to use similar code for Google maps. The URL I was hacking was this: "http://maps.google.com/?sll=33.750,-112.123"

    If you figure it out, please let me know. I'm thinking we may need to create a .kml file and call google's mobile maps with the .kml file.

    Thanks for the post. I am hopeful that we have a programmer who can help us out. It seems like it should be pretty simpole.
