Does anyone have a working example of google maps working for android?
I'm using tabs to navigate.  I followed the google maps page from google (https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/android/start) but that doesn't work.  I keep getting an error about my fragment tag in my xml code.

<fragment xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
          android:id="@+id/map"
          android:layout_width="match_parent"
          android:layout_height="match_parent"
          android:name="com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment"/>

Open in new window


also when i connect to the google play services lib, all my images that i get from the web don't show anymore.

Those tutorials don't work with the google maps version 2.  Is there a working version of this that uses the Activity class instead of FragmentActivity, Fragment, or MapActivity?

Yea I've see that.  I've been trying to find some other way to work around this google map issue.  I can get the tutorials to work but in my app I'm using a FragmentPagerAdapter so I can only use Fragments now which I don't see any google maps using that class so I might be in trouble.

Is this possible?  No Activity, no FragmentActivity.  Just a plain Fragment.  All I get is a blank screen.

Not sure if you can use only a fragment. The way I did it was to declare the google map inside a
com.google.android.maps.MapView

Open in new window

and inside my manifest file I declared a
<uses-library android:name="com.google.android.maps"/>

Open in new window

.

i figured it out.

<fragment
        android:id="@+id/map"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        class="com.google.android.gms.maps.SupportMapFragment" />

Open in new window


using
MapView m;
	private GoogleMap googleMap;

Open in new window


manifest just like google's example and it works!!!
