Map Android project

I just cant get the Google map (plugin: location Map) on Android to work. Lots of errors in BT_screen_map.java. In iOS it worked so smooth and easy. I have the latest SDK and I am building a "testmap" to see if I can get the map working. I have followed Mark Flemings great video on Yoytube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGC9IuEMwBE, goone trough the Google documentation (and steps to create API) and read the documentation followed by the plugin. What I understand there has been changes where to put the API, building target and so on. And the documentation isnt up to date?

Hey @Shorewalk, First question I have...are you testing this on a real device, or using the Emulator? Because it simply won't work on the Emulator because of the lack of Google Play Services. I'll also assume that you have your BT v3 project loaded with the Google Play Services library and stuff? And that you have your API key from the Google Developer Console? Mark

Hi Mark Thanks for the reply. Yes to all of your questions. I have also gone through a couple videos on Youtube (Google map v2 ), some good stuff... My feeling is that I am doing the steps correct... In which part of the process should the warnings disapear in Bt screen map.java?
