Map view on iOS w/ Qt 5.2+?
What options do we have to show a map view with a GPS route or a few points (from raw data not directions search, usually a GPS watch) on iOS using Qt 5.2+?
- Theoretically Google Maps (GM) can only be used via embedded UIWebView with QWidget app (not QML). The closest example I could find but it's for embedding a camera image: "https://github.com/richardmg/qtdd13_qmlapp/blob/cameradone/ioscamera.mm":https://github.com/richardmg/qtdd13_qmlapp/blob/cameradone/ioscamera.mm
- Are there general examples on how to embed a UI* into a Qt app?
- Any update on native mobile support for WebView on iOS/Android or is this not happening?
- What about Apple Maps?
- Any other possibilities?
Any updates so far?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
The QtLocation module is what you are looking for.
QtLocation is great for the use case you describe. If you start to need any more advanced mapping capabilities, you can also check out the ArcGIS SDK for Qt - https://developers.arcgis.com/qt/
