Google Map is empty in ANDROID

Hello, I use BTv3, install keytool and create a key, report the SHA1 in google, get an api KEY V2, put this key in my androidmanifest, but when i click to load the map, i have a message with "2 locations"(i created 2 locations on the map screen), and nothing happened, empty map, no data loading, like this guys : http://postimg.org/image/i3lap39m5/ (from this post : http://www.buzztouch.com/forum/thread.php?tid=1FBCB32C7C0DB782C1BDF15&fid=0B19EC7C02CBDD92F12FD08&sortColumn=FT.id&sortUpDown=DESC&currentPage=2) Im try on real device.

I did exactly this HOW TO : http://www.buzztouch.com/files/howtos/googleapiv2.pdf I try with debug (with password 'android' for the key and the alias) and release, and the map is always empty :( Is it possible to have an error message in real device ?

I have a question too (sorry not an answer for DENIS_) in case someone knows. I know the emulators can't cope with maps and that they have to be tested on a real device. But what should happen in the emulator? People have written they get a screen with blank "tiles" or similar empty map screens. But I get a screen that has the right navbar title but then shows the same picture that you get when a plugin is missing. So basically an error page. I do have some testers lined up with Android devices but it would be good to at least be somewhat confident that it will work.

I know that in BT 2.0 there was a way that maps could work in emulators, but you needed to tweak a setting to allow that in the BT code and with that tweak it didn't work in the real device. I haven't looked into that for BT 3.0,but do I have maps working OK, using the instructions referenced above. I found the trickiest part was setting up the keys in google play. I was lucky, first time I got it work once almost straight away, but the second time took me much longer!

What if I can see a map but it's lacking all the map locations I entered on the BT control panel?

Same problem after few weeks, but i think i know why, in this PDF https://www.buzztouch.com/files/howtos/googleapiv2.pdf In page 11: "With your keytool open, select the app that you wish to generate an API Key for (one API per app)" i dont have my app name in the sublist of keytool tab, like 'com.mgps.overhere' in the PDF. How to put my app in this list ?! How to attach a certificate to an application ?(except when i do file/export?) Otherwise, my app for IOS was accepted by Apple , and i will be a member soon (thx for this great tool).

Ok, just found the solution (what a shame) : Go to console: https://code.google.com/apis/console/ Go to services section Enable Google Maps Android API v2 Smile:) No i have another problem, in my location map, i choose 'load the screen with the nickname below', when i click on 'dtails', application crash, any solution ?
