Use Google Map for free – misconception of the majority of users!
Businesses pay extremely high fees to use Google maps in business.
Users "pay" for personal data to use the map in everyday life.
Use pure Vietnamese digital maps to save costs and secure data!
In fact, Google already charges businesses and users. They changed the way they charge businesses that use the Google Maps API to get more profit. And users are enriching the database for Google. This is also the price users have to pay to use the service.
Digital maps are an almost mandatory requirement in sustainable development. Vietnam is only fully autonomous in terms of map data if and only if it owns its own digital map.

Using Google Maps API has many potential dangers
Users enrich the database for Google and then Google takes that data to do business in Vietnam. This way, Google doesn't need to spend manpower to collect data. As a voluntary contributor. This action of the user, even though it is not intentional, has caused a data risk. Information about geography, demographics, traffic, boundaries... is in the hands of foreigners. Bad guys can use the database for many nefarious purposes.
From a commercial perspective, users are buying goods at high prices. Vietnamese businesses have to pay high fees to use Google Maps API. Then, businesses add this cost to the selling price of goods. Since then, the selling price of products and services also increases. Although not directly paying the fee, Vietnamese users are simultaneously enriching the database and indirectly paying the cost of using maps for Google.
