For all lovers of Xiaomi, we have excellent news and is that the devices, Xiaomi Mi Band 3 and Xiaomi Amazfit Bip, both marketed by the sub-brand Huami, will receive a much-coveted application, we are talking about Google Maps, and this will be possible thanks to the developer Franceso Re, who has undergone the task of bringing us the application Mi Band Maps, which will provide everything necessary to keep us always located and today we will learn a little more about this interesting application.
What does the Mi Band Maps app offer us?
This new application will not only allow us to have access to Google maps, as we will also have the name of the streets we are traveling, but it will also indicate the distance that we must travel to reach our destination and apart from that, it will provide us an approximate time to reach it. Another important point is that its interface is incredibly simple and intuitive, so it will be quite easy to customize it to our liking.
Where can we download the Mi Band Maps application?
The Mi Band Maps app is available in the Google Play store and is only compatible with the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 and the Xiaomi Amazfit Bip. We must mention that before we can use it, we must have previously installed the application of Xiaomi Mi Fit, which we can download from the Play Store itself and after having both applications, we can enjoy our version of Google Maps without any problems.
Will the Mi Band Maps application have any cost?
The answer is yes, this application will have a single payment of $0.90, in our opinion, a fairly affordable price considering all the functions it will provide. We must also add that it is compatible with versions of Android 5.1 and onwards, and as an additional tip, it requires permission to access the photos and multimedia folder, and although this may seem a bit uncomfortable, the developer Francesco Re says the following :
Access to notifications from my application is necessary to be able to read the Google Maps navigation notification (otherwise I would not have the opportunity to take this information).
However, the permission to access the files is necessary to store the configuration settings and other graphic resources used by the application (the permission for files and photos is the same).
Actually, I just discovered that the latter is no longer necessary since Android version 4.4, so I will remove it in the next update of the application.
