GoogleMapOptions googleMapOptions = new GoogleMapOptions();
mapFragment = SupportMapFragment.newInstance(googleMapOptions);

Then you can also disable the rotation gesture like this:

GoogleMapOptions googleMapOptions = new GoogleMapOptions();
mapFragment = SupportMapFragment.newInstance(googleMapOptions);

SupportMapFragment mapFragment = (SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager().findFragmentById(; mapFragment.getMapAsync(this);

and in onmapReady insert this :
