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

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.

ArcGIS from ESRI

•Full featured GIS – custom maps, no advertising…

•GIS App as well as an SDK with its own MapView
