Google Maps + Directions in applications.

 I have a question as to how it appears some applications have driving
directions built into the application. I know there are options such
as Open Street Map, but how does one en-corporate driving directions
like the 1 Click Direction (Alpha.3) uses driving directions from
google. I was under the impression there was no way to do driving
directions, other than launching a new intent to google maps?

1. My app runs fine on ADP1, but crashes the Motorola Droid?

Today I received user feedback from a Droid user that my app "The
vOICe for Android" (one can find it on the Market by searching for
"seeingwithsound") causes the Motorola Droid to shut down (really?)
within half a minute.

I tested my app on ADP1 (Android 1.6), where I've just had it running
for over 15 minutes without any issues, and I have also tested it to
run OK on the emulator (set to Android 1.6 and 2.0), at various screen
sizes from QVGA to WVGA. In other words, I cannot reproduce the
problem. Buying all Android phones with all firmware versions and all
Android OS versions (1.6 and 2.0 for now) is not practical. How does
one deal with such situations? It looks like the Android OS is already
starting to fragment across devices. Any help is appreciated,
including crash data from Droid users.



2. Prevent full-screen behaviour via the InputMethodManager

I'm looking to prevent the default behaviour of going full screen when
controls like EditText receive focus in an application. The
InputMethodManager class does indeed have a setFullscreen() method
available, but it seems to have been hidden on purpose in the SDK. Is
there any other way to disable this behaviour while still using the
software keyboard?
