Google Maps alternative for Huawei users
Due to the ongoing US ban against Huawei Software Technologies Co., Ltd., many Google apps are not accessible on Huawei mobile devices. Thus, the company has long been developing its apps to cater to the needs of its users. One of these is the Petal Maps. Also known as Huawei Petal Maps, it is an efficient travel and navigation tool alternative for Google Maps. It comes with maps and navigation tools, location services, map displays, location searches, driving navigation, and a list of your favorite locations in more than 140 countries and territories.
More navigation features
With the turn-by-turn navigation it provides, you will always be one step ahead whenever you are driving. It allows you to find the best route to your destination based on the real-time traffic information that the tool has gathered. It also comes with turn-by-turn voice guidance. This map utility provides instructions in multiple languages such as English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Mandarin.
The application uses a super GNSS and other handy technologies such as image recognition algorithms, which enables you to have more accurate, most efficient, and least crowded routes. Here, you’ll explore through surroundings with an interactive 3D view that provides you a smooth and seamless transition as you pan, tilt, rotate, and zoom. The air gesture feature gives you the power to zoom in and out while you’re driving—a fresh way to navigate safely.
On the other hand, if you ever plan to go on a trip without your car, this navigation app could greatly aid you in planning by presenting real-time public transport information—detailed schedules, departure times, and arrival times. This utility tool also places high priority when it comes to privacy. It assures you that all of your location data is securely protected with E2EE (end-to-end encryption) and other advanced privacy protection technologies.
After a while, Huawei has finally produced its own travel and navigation tool. By far, it presents maps and navigation features that Google Maps offers. With this, Huawei users won’t feel left out now as the company strives hard to cater to the Google services that were removed due to the ban.
