MapQuest review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Getting to an unknown location can be quite frustrating when you do not have directions or when you show up late for an interview because you were stuck in traffic for over 2 hours. MapQuest, a popular online mapping service, with over 10 million downloads, has created a much easier navigation system for users to get to their destination hassle-free. It has so many useful self-explanatory features that can aid in day to day navigations or long-term trips. In all honesty, MapQuest makes Google Maps look like a low budget map.

It has gained more users due to its interactive interface, turn-by-turn and free voice-guided navigation. Let’s see some jaw-dropping features of MapQuest that make it a tool that should be installed on every mobile device.

Key Features

  • Up-to-date satellite maps;

  • There is a “favorites” option that allows you to save locations and addresses for future reference;

  • Voice navigation for walking and driving directions;

  • Real-time traffic updates: This will help you look for an alternative route to your destination if needed;

  • Live traffic cameras to view road conditions before you leave your location. This is a remarkable feature that has taken MapQuest on a whole new level;

  • A speedometer that helps you measure your speed with the speed limit of the route that you are taking;

  • You can save money on gas, as MapQuest shows you the different prices of gas in the gas stations around you;

  • Besides using the map to prepare for trips, you can also get good deals on hotels around your trip location and book a room.

Note that the use of GPS drains the battery of a device faster.

MapQuest Downsides

Every great app can have downsides and MapQuest is not left out. Here are some of them:

  • Even though it has a feature for an alternative route, it does not always display these alternative routes.

  • MapQuest provides a feature that can change the date and time that one has scheduled to leave for a future trip but gives nothing on how traffic can affect drive time for that trip.

In conclusion, the app is a good one. Navigating through it is easy and user-friendly. The graphics/design is interactive and clear while the overall performance is great. There are a few concerns, not critical but worth looking into and addressed. The functionality of the app is still top notch.
