MapQuest 4 Mobile Beta Launch

The launches keep coming this week at MapQuest! We’re adding to our announcements with the launch of MapQuest 4 Mobile Beta.

We’re excited to show off our new free mobile product that offers maps, directions, local business search and more for BlackBerry devices. One quick look at the interface and you’ll see how intuitive it is — you’ll go from a new user to a pro in a single use. Try out the scrolling carousel across the top and you’ll see how easy it is to use.

Those that have tried this new mobile app out immediately found it engaging and very practical. Not only does it get you where you need to go with street and hybrid (aerial imagery with street names) map views, we have handy features such as live traffic conditions and MapQuest’s database of over 16 million points of interest to search from.

One of the really cool features is the GPS Find Me feature. Your GPS chip helps locate you and you can quickly get directions from your current location and track your progress as you get to your destination.

MapQuest 4 Mobile is currently available for download for the BlackBerry 8830 on Sprint, and the 8310, 8800, and 8820 models for AT&T. Many more devices will be supported in the coming months.
