Miniature MKMapView without Google Logo

advertisements

I am in the process of developing a thumbnail MKMapView to show a singular point on the map. However, as the thumbnail is only 70x61px, the google logo takes up a large proportion of the map.

Please can you tell me a way of using the MKMapView so that the google logo is less visible or can't been seen, but avoiding app rejection, or any alternatives to using the MKMapView?

Thanks in advanced.

How it looks at the moment:


Have you looking into the Google Maps Static API? It returns regular jpeg maps rather than interactive ones. You might be able to craft a URL that gets you a small enough image for your thumbnail. I don't know whether that would be ok according to their license or not.
