Huawei Picks TomTom To Replace Google Maps

The deal allows Huawei to use the Dutch firm's mapping services, in addition to navigation and traffic updates, on Huawei devices after the Trump Administration blocked the Chinese tech giant from accessing United States tech during the ongoing trade row.

But now the Chinese company appears to have found a replacement for at least one of the search giant's key services, confirming that it's secured a Google Maps alternative by entering a partnership that will see navigation specialists TomTom provide maps, live traffic information and software for Huawei smartphones, as reported by Reuters. The US claims Huawei acts as a conduit for Chinese government espionage, an allegation the company denies. The deal is certainly a weight off Huawei's shoulders, which without a global navigation partner, would have had to ship devices with limited map services.

Over the weekend TomTom spokesperson, Remco Meerstra announced the deal however questions are being raised as to how long the deal will last as the European Company is tipped to come under political pressure to limit the sale of their services. It suggests that Huawei may have obtained a license to use TomTom's technology and data to develop its own, Huawei-branded mapping application.

Google Maps is an incredibly important part of Google's ecosystem of mobile apps and services.

The upcoming Huawei P40 series should have the new mapping service pre-installed. In some areas, the company's making its own first-party alternatives to go up against Google's offerings, while in others, it's extending a hand of friendship to all who'll listen.
