Maps and Navigation API - Nokia plugin
Qt Mobility 1.1 contains a Maps and Navigation API. According to http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/MapsNavigationAPI, "Qt Mobility will ship with a plugin that accesses Nokia services by default".
How are these Nokia services accessed? Are they accessed directly via an HTTP connection, or does it use the OVI Maps application on the phone? Are there any documentation on these APIs, and can they be used without QT?
Details of how to use the plugin are available here:
It's using HTTP at the moment, although all kinds of things might change in the future. I'm not sure if the docs for the HTTP service are publicly available, although I do know that the terms and conditions for the web services are the same as the terms and conditions for the plugin.
It's probably worth checking with Ovi and seeing if they're planning on releasing a library for whichever language / platform you're interested in.
Is there an update on this one? Are we able to access the installed OVI Maps API?
We're still talking to people and investigating our options on this front.
Ok, Thanks for the update.
Please post if you have any news.
