Make map annotation display on map load in android?

Is there a way to make a map annotation tooltip show up when the map is first loaded in Android? In IPhone it does this automatically, it pops up the tooltip with the title and subtitle. However in Android, you have to click on the pin in order to pop up the tooltip.

  • Just select that annotation when containing window is opened (which is indicated by event).


    // define annotation to show on map
    var annotation = Titanium.Map.createAnnotation(location);
    // create map with annotation in the center
    var mapView = Titanium.Map.createView({
      mapType: Titanium.Map.STANDARD_TYPE,
      region: {
        latitude: location.latitude,
        longitude: location.longitude,
        latitudeDelta: 0.001,
        longitudeDelta: 0.001
      animate: true,
      regionFit: true,
      userLocation: false,
      annotations:  [annotation]
    // select annotation to show it's tooltip when window is opened
    window.addEventListener('open', function () {
    // add map to window
    // open window with prepared view
