TomTom closes a deal with Huawei for use of maps and services

New Huawei phones are precluded from pre-installing Google apps, including Google Maps, following the company's blacklisting by the Trump administration in 2019.

Huawei Technologies has partnered with Dutch mapping and navigation firm TomTom to use the latter's services on smartphone apps, media reports revealed.

The Dutch company's software primarily targets vehicle drivers: only in the past month, TomTom has closed deals to provide services to Subaru, Alfa Romeo and Hitachi.

The news comes after USA president Donald Trump, citing "national security concerns", blacklisted the Beijing-based tech giant and over 70 Chinese firms in May previous year amid escalating tensions in the United States trade war on China.

As TomTom is based in the Netherlands, Huawei is able to skirt the U.S. government's trade ban, which prevents the Chinese phone maker from dealing with American companies.

The blacklisting means American companies have to seek government permission before dealing with Huawei. Without any access to Google's operating system or built-in apps, Huawei's developing Harmony OS as a full-fledged Android replacement. A TomTom spokesman told Business Insider: "We can confirm that developers can now use TomTom Maps APIs, Map content and traffic services via Huawei's developer portal". In some areas, the company's making its own first-party alternatives to go up against Google's offerings, while in others, it's extending a hand of friendship to all who'll listen.
