In October, Huawei officially launched its own Navigation and Maps service app, the Petal Maps App. Now we have the opportunity to download these Petal Maps from the Huawei App Gallery.
However, this is still in the Beta version and you need to register for it. But if you have Huawei P40, Mate 30, or Mate 40 Devices, no registration is required. But you need to have EMUI 11 on your device.
Huawei Petal Maps allows us to get maps of over 140 countries. It allows you to view your current location, browse the map, locate and add locations, as well as get information about real-time traffic conditions.
