Creating a map pin with text inside it

Postby Myles » Fri Dec 12, 2008 7:12 pm

I want to know how to create a map "pin" such as the one used in the
Google Maps app, shown when you search for a particular address. The
white "balloon" which contains a short String to denote what the pin is
representing.

Instead of adding a drawable for my pin in an OverlayItem, I would
rather use a pin like shown in the image below and include my own short String. Obviously i'd need the same onTap ability.

Is there an easy way to create this kind of pin or is it unique to the
Google Maps application?

Here is an example of the "pin" I want to discover how to use:

Any help with this, would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks!

I also need it. But it seems there is no easy way to reach it.
