In Android Map v2 API how to get screen image to share?

It appears that new android map v2 api (which is really cool, third parties can access rotatable maps, etc. thanks google!) DOES NOT allow easy access to the screen image (we'd like to save the screen image for sharing etc)

This question How to get Bitmap of MapView from Android Google Maps API V2 says it cannot be done.

But this question and answer implies that it is possible Taking screenshot of Android OpenGL

Has anyone saved the image of the android map v2?

An alternative solution/question: Is there a way to send an intent to the android operating system to have it start the "Take a screenshot" processing?

Thanks.

Only for your own GLContext. You do not have the GLContext for a GoogleMap.

Is there a way to send an intent to the android operating system to have it start the "Take a screenshot" processing?

Fortunately no, for obvious privacy and security reasons. Apps cannot take screenshots, except with root permissions or on a few security-challenged devices.
