Can't access Google Maps from Java app on ET-1

My customer, Home Depot, has a java Android app that they would like to run on the ET-1, but it fails because it requires the Google Maps components.

Here is the failure:

     Package com.thehomedepot requires unavailable shared library com.google.android.maps;

I assume this failure is a result of the fact that the MX OS does not include the Google Marketplace Services (GMS).  Is anyone aware of a workaround for this?  We can recompile the app if  necessary.

 

Thanks
