Huawei Petal Maps with new features

The latest updates include augmented reality (AR) pedestrian navigation, real-time location sharing, and a new user growth system

Since its launch in 2020, Petal Maps is developing more and more every day. In fact, this Huawei app now offers innovative travel and navigation experiences to more than 28 million users in over 160 countries. Designed to help smartphone users better explore their world, Petal Maps strives to make navigation as convenient as possible, with a host of revolutionary interactions and cutting-edge technologies. In this regard, Petal Maps announced a series of innovative updates for its latest version, including augmented reality (AR) walking navigation, real-time location sharing, and a new user growth system, creating a more immersive and realistic map experience. .

Seamless AR technology that makes walking more intuitive

Exploring new places on foot can be a lot of fun, especially when you don’t have to worry about following complicated directions.

Even when location and direction are displayed in traditional navigation applications, most users will still struggle to get their bearings when encountering intricate networks of streets and passages. Taking advantage of smart visual recognition technology, Petal Maps overcomes this problem by introducing an Augmented Reality (AR) pedestrian navigation feature. With this new feature, users can set walking directions in their surroundings using their smartphone camera, making it a much easier way to walk to their destination.

By making a clear distinction between the current location and the wealth of environmental data, Petal Maps now brings arrow direction, road names and other key information in perfect sync with the real view, offering users a seamless cohesion between virtual maps and the real environment. Also, users can now seamlessly switch between in-flight navigation and panoramic navigation, according to the specific route and real-time needs. So, with the new version of Petal Maps navigation, your every walk will become a real pleasure.

Sharing team location in real time

With the new real-time team location sharing feature, visible in a specific map view, users can accurately and quickly share their location with others. This helps users understand how far their friends really are from them, which is very important when meeting in a busy area or in a city they are in for the first time. Now you can freely and unburdened to explore new places and share your discoveries with your friends, telling them the easiest and fastest way to reach you. And while you’re exploring with your friends, why not try Petal Maps’ personalized recommendations via the Nearby Life service? Find out what’s around you and meet people anytime, anywhere.

Win rewards as you explore

As part of the new Petal Maps navigation user growth system, another innovation introduced is support through levels and badges. Users can collect points and badges by reaching milestones in walking, cycling, leaving reviews and more. In addition to this, users will be provided with a weekly report on their activity, which shows data such as the number of hours and kilometers traveled during the past week. They can also earn different rewards for their achievements while using the app.

“With these latest features, the newly upgraded Petal Maps will guide you through your journey in a fun and immersive way. In an effort to provide our users with the best possible experience, Petal Maps is committed to implementing more innovative technology into its offering, which makes the user experience more convenient and attractive. Petal Maps will continue to expand and improve its capabilities in order to provide users with the best possible experience at all times,” said Huawei Consumer Business Group.
