Maps or Webview?

Postby Menor » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:06 pm

Hello.

I'm in doubt... I need to display a map of an event.

I need something like this:

Image]

First i thought to make this with a webview, using javascript to make the red buttons. It worked fine. But there is a problem, if i need to display the user location on the event? how can i put his position using webview? I don't know how to put a point dynamically on webview.
So i thought to make it with a MapView. But can i display only the background image (map) on the mapview?
For points and user location will be used overlays, but how can i lock the map to display just the background?

What's the best way to solve this problem?

Thanks

*Edited: Link of image fixed

My webview shows the map (image background) with points on specifics locations, that when user click on it, open a popup with a label of that point. Clicking on the label, a new activity is called...

The html of webview was maked with the "Fireworks", exported to assets folder and loaded on webview... so, there isn't dinamic information on this html.
