I'm testing out the new Google Maps API V2 for Android, and I'm getting this message when the app launches:

MainActivity showing error message

This is running on an 4.1 emulator.

Here is my AndroidManifest.xml file:

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.example.maptest"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="8"
        android:targetSdkVersion="15" />

    <permission
        android:name="com.example.maptest.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE"
        android:protectionLevel="signature"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="com.example.maptest.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.providers.gsf.permission.READ_GSERVICES"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>

    <!-- Require OpenGL ES version 2 -->
    <uses-feature
          android:glEsVersion="0x00020000"
          android:required="true"/>

    <application
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >

        <activity
            android:name=".MainActivity"
            android:label="@string/title_activity_main" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>

        <meta-data
            android:name="com.google.android.maps.v2.API_KEY"
            android:value="##myapikey##"/>

    </application>
</manifest>

File MainActivity.java:

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
    }

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);
        return true;
    }
}

File activity_main.xml

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" >

    <fragment xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:id="@+id/map"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        class="com.google.android.gms.maps.MapFragment"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Clicking "Update" crashes the app with the following stacktrace:

I've also referenced the Google Play Services project. What am I doing wrong here?

UPDATE

The corresponding bug in Google issue tracker (https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/35822258) was solved some time ago.

Now you can use Google Maps Android API in emulator and create Virtual devices with Play services as described in this answer:

According to a discussion with Android Developers on Google+, running the new Map API on the emulator is not possible at the moment.

(The comment is from Zhelyazko Atanasov yesterday at 23:18, I don't know how to link directly to it)

Also, you don't see the "(via Bazaar)" part when running from an actual device, and the update button open the Play Store. I am assuming Bazaar is meant to provide Google Play Services on the Android emulator, but it is not ready yet...

In the Android SDK Manager, you must install "Google APIs (x86 System Image)" under "Android 4.4.2 (API 19)". Quit Eclipse and restart it.

Then create a new android virtual device in AVD manager and choose "Google APIs x86 (Google Inc.) - API Level 19" as target. Check "Use Host GPU" to ensure the drawing of the map will be accelerated.

That's it, this new emulator will have Play Services preinstalled and it will run faster because it's a x86 image.
