Huawei is preparing its alternative to Google Maps

Apple has learned the hard way that it was very complicated to compete with Google Maps. Despite billions of dollars invested to improve maps, the navigation app from Apple still remains a notch below its main competitor. We therefore wish a lot of courage to Huawei in its mapping project home.

The chinese giant, while his desire to develop an alternative to Android with HarmonyOS, is going to propose by the fall of a box of tools to replace Google Maps. No question, however, deliver an application in the proper form : this service, called Map Kit (where are they going to look for that !), is intended for developers for the moment.

They will be able to integrate the different services developed by Huawei in their own apps : a navigation system ” highly sophisticated “, praises Zhang Pingan, the president of cloud services Huawei. But also traffic information in real time, and the support of the augmented reality for the mapping. Map Kit will be available in about forty languages from the start, and will cover 140 countries.

One of the first partners of Huawei in this adventure, we find Russian search engine Yandex and the aggregator of rates of travel Booking Holdings. Map Kit will be of great interest to the manufacturer, by the way: if Google had to cut off the supplies of Android and its services.

Term, one can easily imagine an app dedicated to navigation, but it will require a lot of resources to compete with the richness of Google Maps. It is, however, less true in China. The application of Google is back since the beginning of last year, after an eclipse of eight years, which has allowed local alternatives to develop.
