What's New

Version 5.14.1

In this release, we’ve given you a brand new and improved route ribbon!

We’ve also updated the slow traffic color from a dim yellow to a nice bright yellow.

And, we fixed how your round trip route ribbon is styled. If you take a roundtrip which follows the same route there and back, you will now see what has been driven (gray ribbon) vs where you need to drive (blue ribbon) displaying properly.

Too late for turns

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.

We're so sorry to have let you down this time. I'd like to look into this issue a bit further, would you mind sending us a quick email at appfeedback@mapquest.com? *TB



1 star is overly generous. The party booked 3 months in advance and paid in full was not delivered. Email confirmations received. All details changed day of due to overbooking on day of event. 2 hour party time changed by 2 hours and was limited to 1 hour when too late to change guest invitations. No place to put cake and food as the “party room” and food services booked and paid was also reduced to 2 tables for almost 20 people. We were not alone. Several other families showed up only to find their details were changed without notice too. Talking with the owner was not helpful in correcting the situation and a refund was not given. Not even a discount. Not even an apology. Just sharing though even advance booking and confirmations were given, they were not honored. Booking is the customer agreeing to the party deliverables but not, apparently, the establishment delivering as promised...”contracted”. Fail on child birthday party. :-(

Hey there, looks like you left a review for a different app other than MapQuest. MapQuest is an navigation app and doesn't have any event planning services. I'd recommend reaching out to the company you booked through. If you have any questions specifically about MapQuest please feel free to reach out to us at appfeedback@mapquest.com. *AV

Great for shortest route, along with normal routing


As an EV driver, as well as someone who likes to take “the road less traveled”, I appreciate having the option of the shortest route when needed. Waze and the other apps have needlessly removed this option over time, and so I went looking for a good nav app that also shows “shortest”.

MapQuest fits the bill perfectly. One of its route options always seems to show the shortest route, which is perfect when I need it. It also shows upcoming turns with a green circle, which is nice.

All in all a solid nav app with plenty of features that is one of the few (if not the only) one left that does shortest routing. Please don’t take that away!
