    No one likes to spend 3 hours sitting in standstill traffic, and using MapQuest can help you avoid wasting time in your car with real-time traffic updates. In addition to traffic algorithms, MapQuest gives you access to Traffic cameras on major roads you use to get home giving you a live look at the road conditions.

    When driving home from work or a vacation trip, instead of asking total strangers for directions to the cheapest gas stations around, this tool can help you find your way there with 1 click. It displays the quickest route to your choice gas station.

    No matter where you go, you are going to love having this app on your phone. Whether you are at home or 1,000s of miles away, this app will give you all of the guidance you need. I remember printing out Mapquest directions but this is so much easier.

  • 3 Apps...I use Mapquest the most Aug 1, 2020

    By A lot of options
    Although I’m extremely technologically deficient I have found MapQuest more user friendly. We are on an extended trip at a very unusual time but I felt the need to see family. That meant Austin, Texas to Hartland, Michigan for a week, moving on to Ann Arbor, MI. for some 10 more days and now the trip home. Kind of anyway. I had always wanted to go to Shipshewana so off we went-then due to some predicted rough weather instead of going a tad East and headed South toward TN- we took a northwest turn and landed in the Wisconsin Dells for a couple days. We’re headed West this morning. All that to say I’ve had better luck finding needed stops for gas, food and lodging on MapQuest. I know I probably could use it to review different routes without deleting them so I could compare but I haven’t figured that out yet. I’m responsible for “navigating” and I will continue to use this application!

    I upgraded my rating from 3 Stars to 4 Stars. The reason is that the navigations are improving. MapQuest used to be the absolute WORST navigational tool in the world, 🌎🌍 but apparently, someone is actually doing their job. I sincerely hope the trips continue to improve on the navigation. Thanks, and I hope this helps someone.
  • MapQuest is better than google maps Dec 9, 2020

    By milakitten
    I can use my fingers to pinch and move the map around in circles, side ways etc like Apple Maps that’s in my iPhone. Google maps is difficult to do any of those finger gestures which is a pain when you are driving in the moment. Plus Apple Maps is a pain because it automatically switches routes on you as you drive further into your 1st route that you picked and it’s stressful! When I’m driving I know that I picked route #1 option and refused route 2 or 3 for reasons but Apple Maps will automatically switch the route even when you are trying to exit off or onto a freeway or major intersection which is dangerous!!! It never used to be like that. I can’t stand google maps on my iPhone. Google maps does better on a laptop for research if you’re looking into greater details for research of cities, driving distance, businesses in the area or trying to google drive in their map system to see what an area looks like virtually to plan your move or road trip in general. All in all, gonna try to use Mapquest in my car while driving more often than Apple Maps.

    Waze is very good, but drops out unexpectedly. Google Maps keeps turning "Do not disturb" on. Lots of bells and whistles. MapQuest straight forward, intuitive, accurate. Speaks through my Bluetooth phone, not USB. Great! Unlimited "add stops". I can add a day's worth of stops and know when I'll get home for dinner. Waze can't do it.

    The good part was that while traveling there were several accidents that google maps told us would cause significant delays, but couldn’t/didn’t give us any alternative routes. Neither did Apple maps. Mapquest gave us the alternative and even alternatives to that route when it started getting backed up. Neither G nor A gave additional alternatives even once knowing we were on a different road. The bad part is that the available map size was notably smaller than the others, jumped around more, took longer to get the info, and often the names of roads on the map were too small to read easily, and when the map was expanded the street name often disappeared rather than getting larger and more readable. I find it easier to follow a map, especially if I’m navigating for another driver, rather than following verbal directions that assume you can estimate distances at 50-60 mph. All 3 of the map apps seem to want to jump to that too easily. I don’t know which did it the most, but I did find that with MQ it was difficult to get back to the map without deleting and then putting the destination back in and then at times it wouldn’t/couldn’t connect easily despite having service.

    Great app. I like the fact you can still listen to your music while being guided to your destination. And when it's time to go back I just say show me the way to go home. That's priceless. I'm driving and listening to the app so I don't really see the ads so let's just say 5 stars for the ads not being in my face. It's my goto that I've used for about 10 years now. Simple to use, great directions, loving it.

  • Better Option Dec 20, 2018

    By Back Road Master
    I like MapQuest better than the system in my car or Google maps because it gives me the option of 2 to 3 different routes to take. I can then see which route has the least traffic and select that one. The others only default to the one option and you get what you get. Today I was coming home from Santa Fe Springs California to Ventura California. And The route that I chose had me go through the five freeway. However at a certain section when I had the option to choose the 101 or the five freeway it had me take the 101. I noticed that the 5 was at a dead stop at the intersection. All the 101 flowed. And then it had me take the next offramp and I was on city streets. I was a little confused but I thought I would go with it to see what happened. And what it did was it took me through non-congested city streets back onto the five freeway via the 110 freeway which eliminated me from having to be stuck in bumper to bumper traffic for quite a distance. That I thought was a winner!

    Could you please add a save route feature? You are one of the only apps that allows more than 10 stops to be built into a route, but as far as I can see there is no way to name and save those stops as a route. This means that everything you want to re-run the route you have to manually re-select all the addresses and put them in the order you need. It be awesome if you could work on this feature, and please keep it free! Or at least a 1 time purchase instead of a pay $9.99 a month 🙄.
  • My Opinion “never get lost again” Oct 23, 2018

    By Really X2 Really!
    I used a different app for a while and got sick of constantly taking the long way around, which is the only directions it seemed to give. This app “so far, so good” I believe In my opinion that it is the most “updated” app for current directions. This app even had the name of a brand new road to a housing development that there was only one home built so far. After updating both my Tom Tom and other app, neither one had the name of the road posted; actually one of them didn’t even show that there was a new road made, as this once was woods. Along with directions for driving, they also supply excellent routes for walking to your destination. I know this is long and detailed but when u are lost in an area “with no road names,” scared, and now need gas from driving in circles, finding this app with correct directions home was priceless. If one person reads the whole thing and they never go through that, it is worth the write.
  • Too late for turns Dec 8, 2017

    By Lost Work Traveler
    I’m an avid Mapquest user because I’m always having to go to different meeting sites for work and rely on this app because I’m always in an unfamiliar area. I trust Mapquest because it has kept me on the right track and on time. However, this last time I had to change my route because of construction and the Mapquest map was not keeping up with the voice so therefore I couldn’t ahead of time be in the lane I needed to be in to be able to make my next turn. Usually I can glance at the map to prepare to get over because of heavy rush hour traffic and can’t safely make those last minute lane switches to turn on time. On top of that the voice tells me to turn when I’m almost past the street I’m supposed to be turning on. This turned a 50 minute drive into an hour and a half drive and almost made me late for a very important meeting. Fortunately I gave myself extra time hoping to get there earlier. I’m a Verizon iPhone 6s Plus user. Not sure what’s going on with Mapquest. Hopefully you all get it back on track. This most recent update is not working properly.

    Looking for a viable alternative to the awful Google Maps, Mapquest lloked like it might be the winner, but just 5 min revealed it is unusable for me. When out in landscape mode, the app automatically shrinks the map to the right half of the screen with the full turn-by-turn directions on the left half. Unsafe to safely drive trying to squint at a half-sized map. Unfortunate. Fix this unnecessary feature and I'll try it again and revise my review.

    I really wanted to like MapQuest. But it's nowhere near Google Maps. It can't find other places like Google maps. For example, I typed to find "Walmart" and it was only able to give me a few places. Also, the directions doesn't quite take you to the correct entrance of a building. Instead, it takes you near the building location which could just be off the side of the road. I will keep checking back for improvements. But for now, Google maps is still kind of GPS.

    Been using this app for almost 3 weeks now since Waze's connection issues remain unresolved. MapQuest app has started shutting down after turn-by-turn navigation is activated and user is driving to their destination. Today, 3/4/22, it closed mid-navigation 3 times. Each time the app had to be reopened and the destination address reentered. Very frustrating and distracting, especially while driving. I hope MapQuest is not being overloaded due to Waze's issues. 😮‍💨

    1) A simple task like finding the walking distance between two points ends up a usless and monumental project. I recommend that your software developers be introduced to the "use cases" technique to better understand how the app is used. 2) Avoid the bad habit of delegating to the user the tasks of fixing configuration and installation problems. 3) if you are being forced to provide user-help buttons, fire the human interface designers. No. The world does not rotate around their app.
  • I will stick to google Feb 6, 2020

    By Maribravo2
    Years ago, my friend recommended mapquest since I hated google. I never really paid attention but I always had to search for the exact name or address in order for the app to show me the address or else I would get some random results in other states. No issue. I kept doing it. I recently went back to using google maps again, and I alternate between them. Mapquest mainly for residential addresses. I started getting used to google and how easy is for me to find the location even with variation of name. I recently submitted a help request ticket with mapquest. Someone by the name of Francisco scolded me on how I should enter the name correctly. That was the whole point of my ticket, having to enter It exactly as it is in order for the app to find it. What if you have an elderly or someone with any type of disability that it’s unable to write or hear the EXACT ADDRESS OF NAME OF BUSINESS? I rather stick with google maps after this. People make mistakes or can’t write done the names exactly as they are. I was expecting the app to be more like google maps but I guess not.

    Constant problems with this app. Am always afraid I'm going to see "Route failed" when I've no idea where I am. Managing favorite places, on which I rely heavily, is impossible. Can't figure out to edit them, can't sort their order at all, and half the time it takes me 5 minutes just to find how to add a new one. This could be a lot better.

    By Jason Ladin850
    Has potential but no where close to as good as the website I remember. One major pointer on direction's, addresses must be exactly like what mapquest has on record. Exp, correct address as Brook Haven won't compute for mapquests version showing it as Brookhaven. I found out by zooming in on map of the known area and pinning the location for data. That is also the way I had to get my home address to be correct. Zooms are too blurry.

    I just installed this app because I heard how great it is, however, the very first thing I noticed is that it does NOT have voice command like Google maps does. When you are a delivery driver like I am, voice command is essential because I can't stop and pull over all the time just to type in my next stop. I am going to uninstall this app immediately. Wasn't worth my time.

    when I very first downloaded this app several years ago, it was fantastic! However, over the past view updates, it has become increasingly unusable for me. It no longer hooks up to my Bluetooth , I don't have voice directions, it stops in the middle of the trip , it gives me wrong directions, it takes me in circles. I've deleted it and reloaded it, and it still doesn't work worth a s***. I love this app because it was way better than Google, now, I'm not so sure.

    The new google map update completely destroyed the usefullness of the app, so i downloaded several gps apps and this is by far the best one i have found. Simple and to the point. Why do so many developers think cluttering up an app with junk makes it better? If you're looking for a simple GPS app to find whatever it is you're looking for, traffic conditions, alt routes, etc., then MapQuest is what you're looking for.

    I’ve been using MapQuest since before apps existed. When they created their app, I didn’t hesitate and it has never, ever let me down. If I stop somewhere unexpectedly, it recalculates quickly so that I can get back on track in moments. That I can turn it on for long trips and play it through my car speakers without shutting my music off helps too. It simply pauses my music and says what it needs to say. I have absolutely never had a problem with MapQuest service. I recommend it to others and I even use it to help people who are from out of town to figure out how to get where they need to go! Being able to adjust some of the settings is amazing as well! I get to avoid most toll roads, and if I choose to avoid highways completely it can locate which route will work best for me that way as well. This app, and the paper copies before it, have taken me all over the country. I won’t even consider using another service!
  • Best for me . May 13, 2018

    I’m a letter carrier, in December we have to deliver so many parcels and I was very new at this job so don’t know much about 100’s of street and my truck was full of parcels to deliver, so I gave a shot to use Mapquest because it tell me which side houses are are on street, then I figured the BEST part of this app which is it let me put 25 addresses at the same time which made my life so easy and I can see which one comes first and then I start arranging them in order in app and in my truck, one more thing I wish this app would do is let me put around 100 address at the same time and after I put all the address it should arrange all the address accordingly street wise like which street is close by will come first and which one is far it will go last and that will save my more time , because right now that part I have to do manually. I hope they will do this in feature, over all its best for me. I love it, it my work buddy. Thanks guys. Keep it up.

    I drove home from Cuyahoga Falls, OH to Leavittsburg, and the route was PERFECT. There were areas that were color coded yellow and red, along the way, which alerted me of areas where I needed to exercise extra caution and care, while driving along my route. I have always loved MapQuest. It was the FIRST, and all the rest have always fallen short of it, imo.
  • Great maps app!! Mar 19, 2018

    By Mf1129
    Much better than using google maps! Used to use mapquest back in the day before google came out and I’m sooo happy this site developed an app to use!! Recently moved to Texas from CA and have been using this for traveling around the cities! Functions much better and it’s much more reliable when I’ve got no time to deal with google glitching out on me and especially the times it tells me I’m located in a city that’s 400 miles away...wow talk about a big glitch! Have mentioned this to my husband and he has enjoyed using this. He agrees it’s much more reliable! I wish there was a way to have your phone default to Mapquest for directions rather than google maps for the iPhone. Thanks mapquest for making our lives much easier!! And also love how it’s updated with traffic alerts and businesses closed too. Google would take you to the wrong location at times...pretty frustrating!!

    Although I’m extremely technologically deficient I have found MapQuest more user friendly. We are on an extended trip at a very unusual time but I felt the need to see family. That meant Austin, Texas to Hartland, Michigan for a week, moving on to Ann Arbor, MI. for some 10 more days and now the trip home. Kind of anyway. I had always wanted to go to Shipshewana so off we went-then due to some predicted rough weather instead of going a tad East and headed South toward TN- we took a northwest turn and landed in the Wisconsin Dells for a couple days. We’re headed West this morning. All that to say I’ve had better luck finding needed stops for gas, food and lodging on MapQuest. I know I probably could use it to review different routes without deleting them so I could compare but I haven’t figured that out yet.

  • NEEDS TWEAKING Jan 31, 2021

    By BamaPeech
    I use this app almost exclusively, when I need to find a location. My biggest issue is being taken on the least direct way...a/k/a the “scenic route.” TODAY, I knew where I wanted to go, but MapQuest took me a different direction. I wasn’t concerned about getting lost, etc. I thought the app may be showing me a shortcut. NOT! I drove (busy) local backroads and was 10 minutes late getting to my destination! Yesterday, my destination was 1/2 mile + from where the app stated it was! This has happened quite a number of times, over the last few years. Sometimes, the address is shown on the opposite side of the road. ALSO I don’t like the feature of double lines, when I’m close to arrival. I usually end up re-entering the addresses. I’m not always able to pull over to do this. Please change this, so the app will indicate exact mileage. Thanks

    I recently downloaded this app only last night , so I’m going to wait a little to rate . And will be back to write a more extensive review However I did want to mention that I used the app for my morning commute to work just to see how it operates . The app really has everything you need , though I think the navigators voice could use an update as it sounds a little too robotic . I was happy to not be disappointed 🎶 . I’ve been trying other gps apps to get away from IOS due to its lack of dependability. I tried Waze yesterday morning and it wanted to take me some wonky way to work . This morning however , though my route was not all together my usual route , your app took me a way I hadn’t thought of before avoiding several stop lights , adding no extra time to my morning commute . I do a lot of driving for work , and I will be giving this app a work out today .
  • Great App - 4.5 to 5 Stars!!! Sep 29, 2018

    By BX ROAD DIVA
    I must say that most of the time Mapquest will be able to find a location when the gps in my car cannot. It also usually finds the shortest route. Yet, sometimes there are areas that do not show up with a clear address of a location and will only give you an AREA of where you are going. This can be due to the location being a new development or an area where there are new developments nearby. I wish I could give a half star for that one. However, overall, I usually double check with my Mapquest app to see if I can find a quicker route. I love the fact that it gives you 3 route options! Great app!

    Wish for a gps app that doesn't exit the route when it assumes you've arrived. At least this one stays on the map but removes the marker, many times you have to drive by a couple times to find it. Especially at night! But i like it better than google maps and waze which totally exit route. police traps, speed traps, red light cameras would be nice! sometimes the speed limit is wrong. if you're not on a road it has a hard time figuring out what direction you're going, just spins around.
  • Good and bad Aug 3, 2018

    By bergmansam
    The good part was that while traveling there were several accidents that google maps told us would cause significant delays, but couldn’t/didn’t give us any alternative routes. Neither did Apple maps. Mapquest gave us the alternative and even alternatives to that route when it started getting backed up. Neither G nor A gave additional alternatives even once knowing we were on a different road. The bad part is that the available map size was notably smaller than the others, jumped around more, took longer to get the info, and often the names of roads on the map were too small to read easily, and when the map was expanded the street name often disappeared rather than getting larger and more readable. I find it easier to follow a map, especially if I’m navigating for another driver, rather than following verbal directions that assume you can estimate distances at 50-60 mph. All 3 of the map apps seem to want to jump to that too easily. I don’t know which did it the most, but I did find that with MQ it was difficult to get back to the map without deleting and then putting the destination back in and then at times it wouldn’t/couldn’t connect easily despite having service.
  • Too late for turns Dec 8, 2017

    By Lost Work Traveler
    I’m an avid Mapquest user because I’m always having to go to different meeting sites for work and rely on this app because I’m always in an unfamiliar area. I trust Mapquest because it has kept me on the right track and on time. However, this last time I had to change my route because of construction and the Mapquest map was not keeping up with the voice so therefore I couldn’t ahead of time be in the lane I needed to be in to be able to make my next turn. Usually I can glance at the map to prepare to get over because of heavy rush hour traffic and can’t safely make those last minute lane switches to turn on time. On top of that the voice tells me to turn when I’m almost past the street I’m supposed to be turning on. This turned a 50 minute drive into an hour and a half drive and almost made me late for a very important meeting. Fortunately I gave myself extra time hoping to get there earlier. I’m a Verizon iPhone 6s Plus user. Not sure what’s going on with Mapquest. Hopefully you all get it back on track. This most recent update is not working properly.

    On multiple routes, the map shows the entire route, making me think I had to upturn. It should only show the current route. When I hit my first stop it didn't erase and kept trying to reroute me to my first stop. There should be an ETA for the current route as well the entire route, and the font should be bigger for the ETA. I want to keep using this app as I'm tired of the alternative collecting my data. Please fix.
  • Mapquest is sending error msgs ‘try again’ Apr 2, 2019

    By Kansasbred
    I gave the app a great review a year or so ago, which is below. But what’s the deal with Mapquest, I put in an address that I’ve used before and it sends me an ‘error’ message and says to try again. I tried different addresses and it gives me this error every time?? It’s very aggravating it does nothing but spin as if it’s loading info but will only drain the life out of your phone instead. Please tell me you’re addressing this issue, I didn’t realize how much I relied on Mapquest until I couldn’t get it to load directions. I started using Mapquest over 5 years ago after Google maps took us to a vacant pasture for our daughters out of state track meet. I downloaded Mapquest immediately to put us in the right place. Our daughter ran collegiate level with us following her across many states, from Illinois to Florida. Mapquest has never led my husband and I astray. I won’t use any other mapping service. I love that it gives you alternative routes when possible. Thank you, Mapquest!
  • Much better options out there May 28, 2019

    By TSA Boi
    I downloaded MapQuest just to see how the mobile app was. Needless to say I hadn’t used mapquest in years dating back to when directions would needed to be printed on paper. As the years went by, technology evolved pacing way for Garmin and then iOS apps like Google Maps and Waze for navigation. The mapquest interface is pretty interesting. I do love the way I am able to search for points of interest. This is much better on mapquest than say waze. The speed limits are also handy but mapquest is missing some critical features it’s competitors have. For one there is no lane guidance. In addition, the stock voice that comes with the app is hideous. It is so bad that I prefer the old Garmin voice to it. Jane on Waze and the default Google Maps voice or Siri on Apple Maps is much better. Overall, I think it’s a cool niche app but unless you absolutely despise Google and it’s services, Waze and Google Maps are MUCH better options.
  • Time consuming/annoying only @ first. I hope!! Aug 17, 2021

    By wayfairxo
    I am already finding as I just created an account then switched to the app, that in order to save maps (directions I need to access in a very speedy many after work tomorrow), that I must FIRST do so on a desktop computer (WHATTT??), then I will be allowed to save maps & directions on the mobile app after doing so!!! What is the point of a mobile app then? How many of us have desktop computers these days anyway? I’m already annoyed about the way this app works. Idk why Google maps (though I’m NOT a fan of google) only allows you to pinch in a location to get to from your current location. If you’re needing to have a location to get to from say, work…. but aren’t at work at the moment, it doesn’t allow you to find directions. Only type in one address and will get you there from where you’re at, at the time. Really dumb.

    I really wanted to like MapQuest. But it's nowhere near Google Maps. It can't find other places like Google maps. For example, I typed to find "Walmart" and it was only able to give me a few places. Also, the directions doesn't quite take you to the correct entrance of a building. Instead, it takes you near the building location which could just be off the side of the road. I will keep checking back for improvements. But for now, Google maps is still kind of GPS.

    Been using this app for almost 3 weeks now since Waze's connection issues remain unresolved. MapQuest app has started shutting down after turn-by-turn navigation is activated and user is driving to their destination. Today, 3/4/22, it closed mid-navigation 3 times. Each time the app had to be reopened and the destination address reentered. Very frustrating and distracting, especially while driving. I hope MapQuest is not being overloaded due to Waze's issues. 😮‍💨

    1) A simple task like finding the walking distance between two points ends up a usless and monumental project. I recommend that your software developers be introduced to the "use cases" technique to better understand how the app is used. 2) Avoid the bad habit of delegating to the user the tasks of fixing configuration and installation problems. 3) if you are being forced to provide user-help buttons, fire the human interface designers. No. The world does not rotate around their app.
  • I will stick to google Feb 6, 2020

    By Maribravo2
    Years ago, my friend recommended mapquest since I hated google. I never really paid attention but I always had to search for the exact name or address in order for the app to show me the address or else I would get some random results in other states. No issue. I kept doing it. I recently went back to using google maps again, and I alternate between them. Mapquest mainly for residential addresses. I started getting used to google and how easy is for me to find the location even with variation of name. I recently submitted a help request ticket with mapquest. Someone by the name of Francisco scolded me on how I should enter the name correctly. That was the whole point of my ticket, having to enter It exactly as it is in order for the app to find it. What if you have an elderly or someone with any type of disability that it’s unable to write or hear the EXACT ADDRESS OF NAME OF BUSINESS? I rather stick with google maps after this. People make mistakes or can’t write done the names exactly as they are. I was expecting the app to be more like google maps but I guess not.

    Constant problems with this app. Am always afraid I'm going to see "Route failed" when I've no idea where I am. Managing favorite places, on which I rely heavily, is impossible. Can't figure out to edit them, can't sort their order at all, and half the time it takes me 5 minutes just to find how to add a new one. This could be a lot better.

    Has potential but no where close to as good as the website I remember. One major pointer on direction's, addresses must be exactly like what mapquest has on record. Exp, correct address as Brook Haven won't compute for mapquests version showing it as Brookhaven. I found out by zooming in on map of the known area and pinning the location for data. That is also the way I had to get my home address to be correct. Zooms are too blurry.

    when I very first downloaded this app several years ago, it was fantastic! However, over the past view updates, it has become increasingly unusable for me. It no longer hooks up to my Bluetooth , I don't have voice directions, it stops in the middle of the trip , it gives me wrong directions, it takes me in circles. I've deleted it and reloaded it, and it still doesn't work worth a s***. I love this app because it was way better than Google, now, I'm not so sure.

    Looking for a viable alternative to the awful Google Maps, Mapquest lloked like it might be the winner, but just 5 min revealed it is unusable for me. When out in landscape mode, the app automatically shrinks the map to the right half of the screen with the full turn-by-turn directions on the left half. Unsafe to safely drive trying to squint at a half-sized map. Unfortunate. Fix this unnecessary feature and I'll try it again and revise my review.

    I just installed this app because I heard how great it is, however, the very first thing I noticed is that it does NOT have voice command like Google maps does. When you are a delivery driver like I am, voice command is essential because I can't stop and pull over all the time just to type in my next stop. I am going to uninstall this app immediately. Wasn't worth my time.
