According to Reuters, Dutch navigation and digital mapping company TomTom struck a deal with Huawei, allowing the Chinese giant to use its maps and services in its apps. The deal is certainly a weight off Huawei's shoulders, which without a global navigation partner, would have had to ship devices with limited map services.
Desperate to find solutions to their mounting problems the Chinese Company who are closely associated with the Chinese Communist Government and are now banned by the USA federal Government have cut a deal with a Company who for the past few years have struggled to selling their navigation and mapping technology via retailers as consumers use Google Maps.
The blacklisting means American companies have to seek government permission before dealing with Huawei. It suggests that Huawei may have obtained a license to use TomTom's technology and data to develop its own, Huawei-branded mapping application.

The deal was actually closed "some time ago", TomTom spokesman Remco Meerstra told Reuters, but has not been disclosed to the public until now. In parallel to announcing a partnership with TomTom last week, Huawei launched a campaign in London to encourage developers to work on apps for Huawei Mobile Services (HMS), with a lucrative £20 million ($26 million) reward for successful creators.
Although Google was reported to be lobbying Washington for an exemption to the trade ban last summer, Huawei has been manoeuvring to set up an app ecosystem of its own.
The upcoming Huawei P40 series should have the new mapping service pre-installed.
