Hello Community,

Does anyone has any information regarding integration of GPS system in AppGameKit and with some maps included? Any maps, that can pin your location, send a new location.

Thank you!

Hey spasski,

Thank your for the reply! I tried that example. I was looking for dynamic map and placing the coordinates depending on where you are. I already made that with "newlat# = GetRawGPSLatitude()
newlong# = GetRawGPSLongitude()" but showing the map is a problem.

Thank you again!

There's a snippet on here for retrieving a google map, which you can get using a long & lat coordinates per google's map api.

By snapping a photo automatically from Google API?

Yes. Not sure if this was the same snippet I remember but it works.

I tried this example also. I meant if it's possible to scroll the map dynamically directly in an AppGameKit application (like Google Maps does or Waze)

Yes, but it's not automatic, you'd have to build that system.

I understand. So I cannot get it from Google like in the screenshot of this application (attached to this message). Sorry for so many questions, I try to understand some details and then I'll shut up.

EDIT: It says on the bottom left corner: "Google", so I presume it's an API?

I'm not sure how the extra icons work with the API or if that's something user-added. I think your best bet is to read up on the API itself.
