It can be challenging to find a navigation tool that you know you can trust. Huawei offers its mobile users a free service, available for all who are operating on devices with Android 8.0 and higher. As a bonus, Huawei protects your location data with secure end-to-end encryption. This tool is accessible in the app gallery for all smartphones running Huawei Mobile Services.
How Petal Maps works
Petal Maps has various features, including positioning services, immersive map displays, driving navigation, and a customizable list of favorite places that you can freely edit. In addition to this, you can display a full 3D view of your surroundings right on your screen.
This service supports over 140 countries globally and works in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Mandarin voice prompts. The turn-by-turn navigation ensures that the user can pre-plan whilst the navigator explains their directions. You will always feel one step ahead.
Huawei has implemented an exciting feature known as Gesture Control. You can zoom in and out on your Huawei mobile device screen using just your hands.
The tech giant also boasts an extra feature in its application which provides for real-time transit updates. It provides you with all the departure and arrival times of buses, trains, metro, and other public transportation. This feature is only available in major cities.
Google Maps is currently at the forefront of navigation technologies. This aspect isn’t to say that Petal Maps won’t challenge its position with regards to Huawei users. It's too soon to tell. Google Maps has many different features that have kept them in the leadership position. It looks to us, however, that this app may just step up.
High-quality free maps for Huawei users
