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.

Great maps app!!


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!!

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!
