MapView

public class MapView extends FrameLayout

A View which displays a map (with data obtained from the Google Maps service). When focused, it will capture keypresses and touch gestures to move the map.

Users of this class must forward all the life cycle methods from the Activity or Fragment containing this view to the corresponding ones in this class. In particular, you must forward on the following methods:

A GoogleMap must be acquired using getMapAsync(OnMapReadyCallback). The MapView automatically initializes the maps system and the view.

For a simpler method of displaying a Map use MapFragment (or SupportMapFragment) if you are looking to target earlier platforms.

Note: You are advised not to add children to this view.

  • In the case where Google Play services is not installed on the user's device, the callback will not be triggered until the user installs it.
  • The GoogleMap object provided by the callback is never null.
Parameters
callback The callback object that will be triggered when the map is ready to be used.

public void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState)

You must call this method from the parent Activity/Fragment's corresponding method.

public void onDestroy ()

You must call this method from the parent Activity/Fragment's corresponding method.

public void onEnterAmbient (Bundle ambientDetails)

You must call this method from the parent WearableActivity's corresponding method.

public void onExitAmbient ()
