Jump to: navigation, search

BlackBerry OS is a mobile operating system used in older, business-oriented handheld devices manufactured by Research In Motion, later BlackBerry Limited. BlackBerry devices can be used to view OpenStreetMap-based maps as well as to record GPS tracks that can be uploaded to OSM to aid in editing. This page discusses only the software that runs on BlackBerry OS from 1999–2012; for a listing of software that runs on the subsequent QNX-based BlackBerry 10 operating system, see Android.

Software

Libraries for developers

Main article: Frameworks

Libraries make it easy for BlackBerry developers to incorporate OpenStreetMap in their own applications. Another benefit of using these libraries is that they respect OpenStreetMap’s tile usage policy by fetching tiles and other resources from dedicated servers instead of OpenStreetMap’s donated servers.
