Hi Subhag,

You can refer to the thread below for further info. As mentioned in it, please note that we really can’t help you with the install as there simply isn’t a properly licensed version available for the board.

Thanks vchong,
Is there any other method to run .apk file of Google Map project on DB410c?
I made .apk file of my project in android studio.

Others on the forum have mentioned that it should be ok for r&d purposes only. If it’s really ok then you can just side load it as mentioned in the reference thread above. You could look at the alternative app stores mentioned [1][2] as well.

I found APKpure
https://apkpure.com/
delivering almost all the free apk that you may need.
When installed Google services you also make your Dragon Board a bit slower since it must run the services at start.

But if you really want to install the Google services and Play here is a link. I succeeded in the previous version of Android to install it but failed on the new 99 version. Maybe the file I have should be updated. Try it:
