Since the United States veto Huawei and lose Google as a partner, the Chinese company has reacted with a plan to be able to stay out in a market in which it was one of the greatest leaders.
Without having the vast ecosystem of big G apps, Huawei has not only had to create an app store, but it must be able to offer a list of features that are basic in any modern smarthpone and that to date many of they depended on Google.
Maps and navigation are a central axis in the experience of use, and for this purpose Huawei partnered with TomTom, the prestigious manufacturer of GPS navigators. And we can now download the application on any mobile.
TomTom AmiGO: the alternative to Google Maps available for Huawei mobiles
Half a year after the announcement that Huawei and TomTom were joining forces to create an alternative to Google Maps, TomTom and Huawei are still working to offer
TomTom AmiGO from the first start shows as a simple and easy to use application, but it is very focused on car driving, a field in which TomTom has great experience.
It’s easy to select a route and change it depending on whether you want to avoid highways, tolls, unpaved roads or ferries. We have clear voice navigation and radar detection, among many other functions.
In addition to radar detection we also have indications of dangerous sections, traffic jams or speed warnings, since the application will be able to measure our speed with measurement and warn us when we exceed 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 km / h above the limit, or 5%, 10% or 15% for us to slow down. A very useful and customizable option.
The application allows us to report any type of incident on the road and also has a dark mode. This dark mode we have no idea if it is implemented exclusively for Huawei, since neither with Samsung nor with Google have we been able to activate this mode.
If you have a Huawei mobile or have the AppGallery application store installed on any mobile, you can download it from the application store or by clicking on the following link. The app is completely free, with no ads or micropayments, so it’s worth a try even if you don’t have a Huawei mobile. It is also available on Google Play.
