Baidu against: I was the first
In Yu Yongfu only a few hours after the public statement, Baidu map through the official microblogging voice, refute this claim.
Baidu map in the October 15 microblogging, said: "ranking is not blowing alone, third-party data already pops face." & Rdquo;
Yu Yongfu reference for third-party data, Baidu map in the October 15 microblogging response, high German map mobile client number of active users ranked first in the conclusion, in addition to Ereli, other data detection agencies do not think so. Baidu map quoted China Unicom, Analysys International data, Baidu map active users of ultra-high German map 50%, in the number of active monthly and ring than the increase in two areas, high-German map or even a negative growth. Baidu map also said, QuestMobile published in the fall data, Baidu map rankings are also high in Germany before the map.

High German map also said that out of the full confidence in their own performance, high German has allowed another big data service provider Quest Mobile code monitoring and verification, the results are expected in the next quarter. And this debate may also be suspended.
"The first fight" behind the doorway
Judging from the current situation, Baidu map and high-profile war of words focused on the third-party data, who's more convincing data?
The industry also can not give a clear conclusion.
Fugu brand CEO Wang Penghui that Baidu map and high German map reference data, Analysys and Ereli can be ignored, Unicom's data more reliable, the operator is able to access the application using the data. "Now the navigation will use the data network, the operator's data certainly more objective and credible." & Rdquo;
As a user, Wang Penghui also talked about their own experience, "a lot of small roads, Baidu is still Kaopu, the road on the lack of difference; interactive experience high German, such as Shanghai foreign license limit line, automatically enter the high license plate to avoid Limit line sections, high Germany is the first to do this, the navigation experience on Baidu stronger. & Rdquo;
Behind the war of words, Internet watchers "Tokgo by wind" that through this war of words, the outside world can strongly feel the online map in Baidu and Ali two major Internet Group's strategic importance.

He also said that the two sides seem to compete for the location of the online map industry boss, but in fact the two sides want to convey to the outside world through the event of high user volume, who provides relatively high user value.
Zhang Shule is that, in competition, Baidu's biggest advantage is the map on the increase in the entrance of O2O, allowing users to get more convenient. For professional. Zhang Shule analysis, Baidu is more C-users use a higher frequency, but also people perception strong; high German because as the underlying map data, and the back of Alibaba, in the logistics of the B-side use frequency.
