Huawei Technologies Co. has announced its own mapping service called Huawei Map Kit following the successful launch of its operating system called Harmony OS, as the current US ban means it can’t load Google services which includes Google Maps on its smartphones.
Huawei Map Kit will be introduced in October 2019 and is not open for consumer use, but is designed to encourage software developers to come up with applications based on its mapping capabilities.
The Huawei Map Kit will be developed in partnership with Russia’s Yandex and US travel website, Booking Holdings. It will be available in 40 languages, and will have coverage in 150 countries and regions.
Huawei Map Kit will offer real-time traffic conditions and a highly sophisticated navigation system which can recognise a car changing lanes. It will also support augmented-reality mapping.
MapKit will be fully unveiled in October to rival the popular Google Maps, including Apples own Maps and Microsofts mapping service which is known as Bing Maps.
