Expo MapView for Chinese Users

#1

Hi we are having reports that the MapView is not working for our Chinese users, is there anyway around this?

Hey @mjameson2018,

Can you elaborate on what you mean by “is not working”? Also, what provider are you using in your app for the MapView?

Cheers,

Adam

Hi,

The map is not showing due to google maps not being viewable in China.

The provider is google I’m sure? we just use the one from expo:

import { MapView } from ‘expo’;

Thanks,
Matt

Hi again Adam,

Does the map functionality just not work in china?

I hear you have to swap https://maps.googleapis.com with http://maps.google.cn but im not sure you can do this in the expo libraries?

Thanks,
Matt
