So I just got Google maps working on Android – in Eclipse.
It is just a simple map with zoom functions, but it’s a start.
Here are the source files, including a .apk file to install it on your phone and view:
A few notes:
- Make sure when you create your project that you choose a Google APIs build – this will include all the Map classes
- You’ll notice in the main.xml file, there is a slot for API key, this is how you can get that key:
CMD -> cd c-programfiles-java-‘latest version’-bin
type: keytool.exe -list -alias androiddebugkey -keystore “c-users-adam-.android-debug.keystore”
enter password: android
That key generated can be used as a debug key for Android Maps.
- I think that is it for now in terms of notes
Here are some references I used while building (following mainly this first link):
