The all new MapQuest for iPhone

Some of you may be familiar with our MapQuest app, which pioneered free voice guided turn-by-turn navigation on iPhone. Today we released an all-new version. MapQuest 3.0 has been completely redesigned and rewritten from the ground up to give you an incredible mapping, searching and turn-by-turn navigation experience on your iPhone, all for free.

When navigating, we put the most important route information front and center, letting you process it quickly. Our search functionality has been vastly improved, making it faster and easier to find exactly what you’re looking for. In addition to the features our users already rely on — like our one-touch search, trustworthy directions, business information and reviews, real-time traffic conditions, and multi-stop routes — we’ve also added some new functionality to MapQuest 3.0:

  • Cleaner user interface – Experience the easier-to-use design
  • Heads-up display for navigation – View important information at a glance
  • Gas prices – Find the cheapest gas prices near you while on the go
  • Live traffic cameras – See what the traffic looks like ahead to avoid congestion
  • Greatly improved search – Find your destination with ease
  • Enhanced audio performance – More reliable performance with less data consumption
  • Landscape mode – Use any aspect of the app in landscape view — makes typing easier

MapQuest for iPhone has come a long way since its first release in 2009. We know you’re going to love this new version and we can’t wait to hear what you think!
