Map View do not respond to touch events, like touchstart. Example: var mapview = Titanium.Map.createView({ mapType: Titanium.Map.STANDARD_TYPE, region:{latitude:0, longitude:0, latitudeDelta:0, longitudeDelta:0 }, animate:true, regionFit:true, userLocation:true }); mapview.addEventListener('touchstart', function(e){ Ti.API.info("touchstart"); }); window.add(mapview); Touchstart event is NEVER fired.

    Fabrizio Tickets by community members may only be created in this project, so they may be checked for completeness before being moved to the correct project. This ticket is a perfect example of why this process is important! ;) Hence... In order for this ticket to be progressed, please would you do the following? * edit your ticket and format it using the wiki markup provided * state the Titanium SDK version + build date + build hash tested * state the iOS version tested * include a proper [Use-case](http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Contributing+to+Titanium#ContributingtoTitanium-CreatingGoodUsecases). To clarify, the script should run without modification when added to a blank app.js. Hence, where is the window created? You should include this, so that the core devs can replicate the behavior in the quickest time Also kindly read the [Submitting Bug Reports](http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Contributing+to+Titanium#ContributingtoTitanium-SubmittingBugReports) guide before raising tickets. Thank you

    This is still an issue and a customer in the Help Desk needs this.

    Another sample code:

       var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
       var map = Ti.Map.createView();
       map.addEventListener('click', function(e){
