Google's (GOOG) declining Chinese search share - the result of its decision to abandon Google.cn rather than censor results - is taking a toll on Google Maps' position in the country. Analysis estimates Google Maps' share of the Chinese mobile map market fell to 17.5% in Q2 from 25.2% in Q4. Baidu Maps (BIDU) is the main beneficiary: its share rose over this time to 17.3% from 11.7%. AutoNavi (AMAP) leads the market with a 25.7% share.

    Just the opinion of a small (but enthusiastic) investor:

     

    Win some, lose some.. but overall, I think Google is looking strong!
