Spoken Turn-by-Turn Walking Directions on MapQuest’s Mobile Apps

If you happen to be one of the lucky folk who have Monday, Oct. 8, off in celebration of the explorer, Christopher Columbus, chances are MapQuest’s walking directions can help expedite your agenda. Better yet, our free navigation apps even offer spoken turn-by-turn maneuvering so you can choose the most efficient paths through parks and one-way streets.

Have the MapQuest app on iPhone or Android? Just click on “Directions,” enter your start and end locations, then click the “walking man” icon. MapQuest Mary talks you through each of your stops, and you can always use the business locator to grab a quick coffee or stop at a post office along the way. We’re here to help you with discovery along the way as well.

If you don’t have the app yet, download it for free in the App Store or Google Play. Or, if you don’t have a smartphone, walking directions are also available on m.mapquest.com while you’re on the go or mapquest.com before you head out the door.

Hope you take advantage of the Christopher Columbus Day, and like the “real deal,” get exploring!
