Chinese digital map provider AutoNavi's route planning service platform, Gaode Yixing, has added comprehensive support for dockless bicycle-sharing app Ofo. After upgrading to the newest version of AutoNavi Maps, users can quickly unlock nearby Ofo bicycles by scanning the bike's QR-code.
AutoNavi is a subsidiary of internet conglomerate Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA).
Editor's Note: AutoNavi Map also recently integrated support for Ofo rival Mobike's bike-sharing services. For more information on this topic, please see "AutoNavi Adds Support for Booking Mobike's Shared Bicycles," MD 6/29/17 issue.
