Our Smartphone App Just Got Smarter, Makes You Look Good

Let’s be honest. Getting places on time is stressful. Being late can have many consequences, so it’s no wonder some of the most used and discussed features across all of MapQuest are our ETA-based solutions. We estimate your arrival time based on your specific route, traffic, and other road conditions to help you better plan for what’s ahead. Since millions rely on these estimates to navigate and plan their trips of all types, we take this pretty seriously. We’re constantly looking at ways to improve and we take pride in giving all the information needed to make a cool, calm, on-time arrival.

When re-designing our mobile navigation apps last November, we kept ETA top of mind and launched an industry-first ETA status bar in our iPhone and Android apps. Today, we are excited to announce some significant improvements in how we calculate ETA in our iPhone app and, soon, our Android app. ETA is now more responsive to traffic conditions than ever before and, in combination with our automatic traffic re-routing feature, you can impress your friends, family, and boss with your punctuality and effortless navigation style.

While others are sweating it out in standstill traffic, know that your navigation app is giving you the most desirable route and ETA. Haven’t tried the new MapQuest app for iPhone and Android? Get it today.
