Great app
by Prof. T. on 2019/05/25 17:12
This is my go-to maps app. I love that I can see traffic patterns. It also tells me the speed limit and how fast I am going. The only issue I have had is that when I-84 in western Connecticut had a 65 mph speed limit, MapQuest said it was 55 mph. I contacted MapQuest to tell them and they were not interested. They were using Google’s information which was not up to date. I.e. reality was irrelevant. That was a tad frustrating for me that the support department of such a great app didn’t care. I rely on the speed limit information presented by the app.
Much better than the days you had to print it out! LoL
by ZzLylithzZ on 2019/05/25 06:18
I've used MapQuest since before the days of Smart Phones when you had to print it out! This is much more convenient, lol. Thanks!
Beyond terrible
by Jani328 on 2019/05/24 04:31
Between the app AND the website on my laptop idk which is worst. 2 thumbs down
Love map quest

Easy to use
Love this app
by jlittlefield62 on 2019/05/23 14:47
This app is great!!! First-Love that it will talk to u. Second it did not miss one step of our trip!! We tried other apps and they did not work. This one is great!!!
Voice to text never works...
by Team Sniper 2 on 2019/05/22 19:18
...when speaking address. The entire app shuts down.
My preferred travel planner
by James A Jackson on 2019/05/22 15:51
I have ridden around 60k on my motorcycle and use this software when planning routes.
Horrible, doesn’t even recognize an address less than 3 miles from starting point
by Oldster61 on 2019/05/22 06:27
Mapquest used to be so easy to use on a desktop (and maybe it still is), but this app is horrible. I track my medical mileage for taxes, and this app didn’t even recognize an address less than 3 miles from my starting point. I don’t know if it’s the app, or Mapquest has just gotten too complicated or commercial to work properly.
Fantastic, Until Yesterday
by Em da Savage on 2019/05/22 01:31
I’ve always had the best of luck with this app, until yesterday. I was in Detroit, Michigan and every ramp to get onto Northbound I-75 was closed, but the app never rerouted me. I had to keep driving and it just kept telling me to u-turn. I finally drove far enough away from I-75 and it put me onto a different route to find my way home.
Often upside down and not timely
by Vashongal on 2019/05/21 17:34
It baffles me why sometimes the map is oriented backwards (I.e. the direction I am driving is shown on the map as I’m moving down the screen and actual upcoming right turns are indicated as going the other way). I can turn the map around with my fingers but why is it wrong in the first place? And sometimes it’s fine but lately the map is often upside down. Mapquest should have a “reorientation” button just like Google Maps has. Also, the voice directions come so late that I often miss exits or turns which can cause much delay and aggravation when I have to then reroute to get back on track. Voice directions need to be delivered a bit sooner! And if I’m in an area that requires multiple turns in relatively short succession, forget it...mapquest is useless in these situations because it can’t keep up. Other navigation apps do a much better job with providing timely directions.
Crashes when entering addresses
by bonds006 on 2019/05/21 00:29
I cannot seem to do ANYTHING! Every time I enter an address, the app crashes! Developers state with such pride they have fixed so many bugs, but all I can surmise is more created in the process!
Used to be great - now maps show almost no detail
by Former user 484929 on 2019/05/20 14:56
MapQuest used to be a great app. Allows choices of routes and good directions. Lately the maps almost never loads road and town names. This is very frustrating. Please correct this. Not sure what changed. The version online is much more useful than the app.
App issues
by Terberry on 2019/05/19 21:08
The voice on my app continues to come and go. This is critical when driving and unable to look at the app while driving
Map quest
by Transition8954 on 2019/05/19 12:09
Kept leading me into side streets. Complicated it. Should have directed me to 820 south Till I got Granbury exit. All the way to granbury it kept wanting Me to make a uturn to go to some side Road. Needs some work.
Needs improvement
by ;84 on 2019/05/19 02:25
Brought me to the wrong address multiple times and is very inconvenient to type addresses and is not as user friendly compared to google maps.
MapQuest works for me
by ax ax ax 333 on 2019/05/18 21:56
I’ve tried Apple Maps, Google maps, and Waze. None of them compare to the ease of using MapQuest.
What I Like Best
by seniorkathy on 2019/05/18 18:04
Your product gives a choice of Map View or List of Streets and Turns. You can also flip back and forth. I like to see the names of the streets and directions to give me an idea of what to expect, instead of a map only. Once, on the way to catch a flight, Mapquest directed me off the freeway and on to a frontage road. It turned out that the freeway was stopped for several miles. Without that suggested detour our flight would have been missed. Thanks for a product that I can enjoy.
Only one
by Lymrie on 2019/05/18 00:08
Mapquest is the only navigation app that I use! Have tried the others, I still go back to Mapquest. Give it a try, you won’t be sorry.
Best Nav app.
by Rick of AI way on 2019/05/17 16:54
I have several navigation apps on my phone but I almost always use Mapquest. It routes the best and I really like that it keeps a history of destinations I look up.
Love mapquest❤️❤️❤️
by Soikermanone on 2019/05/17 15:06
MapQuest had yet to fail us!! Always great directions!! Definitely go to for clear directions!!
Checking travel routes
by jrgrn on 2019/05/17 13:13
I love using mapquest to check routes and times to different locations. I like how easy it is to use.
Inaccurate destination time
by krisyb1 on 2019/05/17 00:12
The arrival tome all my destinations are never accurate. I always show up way later than the given time.
Always correct. Google sends you wrong a lot, Mapquest never has. Love it, use it frequently.

Awesome Map App
by Nick1Z08 on 2019/05/16 01:56
MapQuest is a perfect GPS. Love it. I also love my 7 inch Tom Tom, but you cannot manipulate it the way you can MQ. MQ is even better than the in-dash-screen GPS a friend has in his new top level Mercedes. His display only shows a bright white background with thin black lines for the roads.
Good job
by Kingfish-39 on 2019/05/15 22:06
I use MQ every day. I just moved into a new State and city. MQ always gets me to where I need to be. Not only do I use it driving but walking as well. So far I have not had any problems. I do not use Google Maps anymore. Kingfish
MapQuest rating
by Jah's witness on 2019/05/15 14:58
I was raised as an “Army brat” many years ago. I was also in Boy Scouts for several years. So, I had been raised around maps and topography. Even to this day, I can get “excited” about good topographic map on paper in my hands, almost as much as a good book (incidentally, I am a bibliophile). This app has worked well for me. It’s helped me to avoid snarled traffic on several occasions. I am not “tech savvy,” but this app has still been a “god-send” for me. Thanks.
Excellent Service
by Flower Rose🌹 on 2019/05/15 00:57
Knew when I get to destination - time And Where to go - map
You call this helpful?
by ELANCHYO on 2019/05/13 15:25
Map Quest gave me two alternate routes for my 350 mile drive, but indicated that both routes included a closed road. Since the road(s) or portion(s) thereof, was/were not specified, your information was useless.
Would like bike routes added, please
by Retired sp.ed. teacher on 2019/05/11 20:58
I know the area, so this app worked well. I would appreciate having the option of selecting bike routes that keep riders off of main arteries. Thanks!
Love
by (Ladylss78) on 2019/05/11 20:33
Way better than google maps. Gives more details and actually takes me to an from the same way!
For the most part, ot is good
by Abigailsdream on 2019/05/11 14:50
On occasion, the verbal prompts are off or wrong. It has said right for left and vice versa; it also has prompted too late or not at all with a few hokey ramps in Va Beach--
Love MQ
by Suepew1 on 2019/05/11 02:00
Been using for years as a traveling nurse and has always brought me to A-B and more when having multiple stops. Gives me MPH so that I don’t drive too fast also allows for layers like gas stations. HATE Google Maps!
I LOVE MAPQUEST!!!
by Valerie7K on 2019/05/09 19:41
LOVE LOVE LOVE MY MAPQUEST GPS!!!!
Worked great forever, but now not!
by asmith2004 on 2019/05/08 17:41
Since the last update, the app will black out or shutdown when I start to put in where I’m going. Please fix ASAP so I can know where I’m going!

by annie6971 on 2019/05/04 15:59
I love MapQuest! It’s my go-to GPS rather than Google Maps as it always gets me to where I need to go! I like that it gives me more than one route so I can decide which one I want to take!:)
Stop it already!!

Wish you guys quit changing stuff!!! Interstate signs are blue and white not black and white that would be your state highways!!! You are going to confuse people!
Mapquest App is the best!
by MelissalovesWish on 2019/04/29 19:03
Not only is the app great but customer service and support is also! I contacted them on a Saturday by email & they replied that same day, almost immediately! I received s sweet, kind follow-up email today also! They will help you when or if you ever need it! Thanks AJ & the team!👍👍👍👍 Melissa

No exit
by Jolanh on 2019/04/27 13:27
There was no exit 19 due to construction
No limits
by verleyphoto on 2019/04/27 03:10
I mostly use Waze. Whenever I travel cross country I use mapquest because there is no distance limit. Waze has a thousand miles limit. So I just set it and forget it. I recommend this app. Waze give live updates and that's the Waze advantage. Otherwise this app is great.
NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT.

Fast. Accurate.

MQ review
by Esiner on 2019/04/24 17:08
I like and use MQ a lot! I do have a problem with a couple of things though. When I zoom in to read the road names the names either get smaller or disappear. The roads get bigger. No help with that ! Lol sometimes I have to go to google maps to know the street names. The other thing I wish you would add is bridge heights. Sometimes I have some tall stuff in the back of my pickup that won’t allow me to go under low bridges. I don’t want to pay for a tractor & trailer expensive version just to know that. Also, I wanted to know do you offer a version of that for truckers? I have been ask that. I wasn’t sure.
Only App I Trust for Directions...take that waze
by juniorsbaby on 2019/04/23 01:44
This App has been my savior many, many times. I heard about Waze or whatever it’s called tried and got lost ended up having to move to use my beloved MapQuest to help me find out where I was and where I wanted to be.
See’s Masonry
by Hipbrick on 2019/04/22 07:44
I have been using this app for several years. It’s my go to GPS whatever I need to get someplace, it’s fast and accurate. If I decide on a different route for some reason the gps redirects me according to my requests. I like the way you can switch from Street directions to several different map layovers and the traffic cameras are quite helpful. You guys have saved me many hours over the years....thank you sir’s!
Don't too small not adjustable
by jrkghost on 2019/04/21 03:59
I like the app, but the font on the map is too small and not adjustable. I'm older and eyesight is not as good as it was, so I need to be able to adjust the font to a larger size.
Great choices.
by Sprocket's Mom on 2019/04/21 00:48
I didn’t want to be on the highway Easter Sunday, I love the backroads directions!
Mapquest Abilities
by KC USN MCPO on 2019/04/20 14:47
For many years I’ve loved and continue to love the ability, flexibility and options (route, reroute, POI inclusions) that Mapquest brings to mapping compared to others. Thanks for what you do.
An excellent guide to get there from here
by cghuurdjk on 2019/04/20 03:49
I have used Mapquest for many years and am very pleased with it. Simple to use and dependable. Only glitch which has shown up is when it thinks a road is closed. It will not provide an alternative route. With this said, it has only occurred once in my experience. A great product!
Great
by Missy G07 on 2019/04/18 21:56
Loved that when there are traffic backups alternate routes are populated!
No list
by S@#$% on 2019/04/18 18:06
I want a list turn by turn - did not get...
Mostly Good
by Savi's Pop Pop on 2019/04/17 14:58
I have been using it for about a month. The only improvement I could see for me would be increased font size on the ETA text at the top.
Frustrated
by heavens hwy on 2019/04/17 02:01
I thought this was a routing app? I wish you could save the route for the next time and that it went the longest distance first and worked its way back to your starting point. It’s not user friendly, I hope it didnt cost more than 99cents I will have to search for something that works better for me. Bummed
Worst mapping system possible
by Jwpastor on 2019/04/16 17:21
In Nice France, second most visited city in France behind Paris. Could show no restaurants near me and I can even see them all around me. The nearest restaurant it located for me under its food button was back at Monaco an hour away. Hilarious. Back to google maps we go.
Keeps shutting down
by Mike 90277 on 2019/04/16 00:24
I used to use Map Quest exclusively. However, it seems more and more that when I start entering a location, the software fails and the app shuts down. Is there a fix for this?
I like it better than maps on IPhone
by CountryGurl88 on 2019/04/15 22:41
I love using this app over my iPhone maps because it gives me more driving options to choose from PLUS it’s easier to understand and operate
Not bad but could be better
by ChelseaKiana88 on 2019/04/15 19:06
Needs option to save routes or download or share to email. Maybe even generate pdf for visual. Not a bad map for GPS navigation but I was highly disappointed with multi destination options. Spent 20 minutes inputting 15 addresses and had to manually organize my route in order, then device battery died and all that work was done for nothing. 1. Auto route multi destinations 2. Save routes
Great app
by MG1027 on 2019/04/15 17:56
Love this app. Use it all the time. It is accurate and I always get where I need to go. I especially am appreciative that I can click on contacts & immediately pull up the person I am going to see. That way I don’t just put in the city but the actual address.
Always Easy to Navigate!
by Iss619 on 2019/04/15 06:26
After comparing different GPS Navigations apps, such as Google and Waze and Maps, I still find MapQuest is still easier to follow, easier to understand the queues and the menu. For me MQ is the original...I appreciate you MQ!
Confusing.
by Wiley Foxxe on 2019/04/14 18:11
Can’t get it to take the most direct route without incorrectly bbactracking
Simply good one

Am coming in the states from 2000 and if am not wrong it was already very good support to me travelled in all the states.
Have turned my 5S off & back on but app still fails when entering an address
by LeeECampbell on 2019/04/13 23:03
I love having the speed limit, but the last update must have broken the app for my 5S☹️
Ugh!!!
by Dragonlady21 on 2019/04/12 21:34
I used to really like this app but recently it’s been getting steadily worse. It’s telling me 1 hr 3 min to my destination. Google maps is telling me 2 hr 20 min. I literally have to double the time estimated, why is that??? MQ used to be super accurate with times but now I cant trust it at all anymore. Time to delete this.
directions to AVOID 895 Baltimore Tunnel
by Dot Pauline on 2019/04/12 13:39
As of April 12, 2019, One of the tubes for the 895 Baltimore Harbor Tunnel will be closed for approx six months. Yikes! As a result all north and south traffic will be funneled into one tunnel. As a result, I was looking for alternate route to go to Severna Park from Kingsville, Maryland. Two options were offered. Thank you.
Always been the Best!
by triad437 on 2019/04/12 13:12
I’ve been using mapquest for years and it has always been the best and has always got me where I was wanted to go. It lays it out in the map and then lists the entire route turn by turn. I’ve tried others but Map Quest is always the best one. I’ll keep using it always. If you haven’t tried it, you should. It keeps it simple and informative and gets you there. What else could you need? Enjoy and thank you MapQuest, keep up the good work. Ross

Excellent service Including traffic
Text is too small
by 999me on 2019/04/12 00:35
One of the most important things for a mapping app is to clearly tell me when I’ll get to my destination. While this app does that, it’s so small you can barely read it. Get rid of that stupid little bar chart and increase the font size so I can read it while driving.
Great app
by Bigdogcoach on 2019/04/10 06:04
Love the app - would like to be able to pick a time to arrive at a location or change a time to leave and have it recalculate how long and/or another route because of traffic like some of the other apps do. Other than that, well done!
Camping in Ohio
by wapakFranz on 2019/04/10 00:15
I was excited to see you had a push button that I could find camping sites in Ohio. I was disappointed to find out that they are not labeled correctly. St Marys Grandlake St. Mary’s Campground became Lake Loraine Campground.
Not Dependable !
by djweiss123 on 2019/04/10 00:10
Be sure you are familiar with your other installed GPS apps, there’s a good possibility that Mapquest will shutdown / crash without reason.
Great
by verjnegff on 2019/04/09 18:37
This app works great for me, mainly for my job. I travel around for work, and MapQuest helps me figure out the time/mileage it takes me to get from place to place, and it helps me with my travel log. Works great!
Directions
by pussigato on 2019/04/09 16:00
I really like Mapquest for its accuracy. However, it’s frustrating when I don’t get an earlier change in directions. It’s difficult to change lanes to turn when I get instructions at .8 miles. This is only because I don’t watch the screen whilst driving.
Bad directions.
by 37:73929:$ on 2019/04/08 18:34
This app gives bad directions. Told me to turn right at intersection then go to next intersection and make a U turn. All I had to do was go straight an I was there. Not to mention it took me on a round about way to get there when one turn was all that was required.
Great resource! I’m in sales and my company believes in driving And I use this app all the time

Great graphics!
by Randall Lee III on 2019/04/08 09:40
Very clear and precise! Perhaps better than Google Maps.
Frustrating
by roodtodi on 2019/04/08 01:06
I tried to use the app to set up my route before leaving for the day. I usually have 4-5 stops. The website lets me reorder stops and will reorder them for me if I select the option. The app does not. Also the map won’t cover the screen but uses a portion of it. That makes no sense. A lot more options on a laptop/computer than on my phone/iPad. This app seems like it was done as a high school project. But I will repeat, I love Mapquest on computer.
Never gets me lost!

Once again, a perfect drive to my designated spot!
I am pleased with MapQuest
by Sweet Robin on 2019/04/07 21:16
I preferred MapQuest over GoogleMaps, imaps or maps which is automatically provisions via my iPhone. MapQuest provides traffic updates, delays, automatically offer alternate routes, always offers 2 or more routes for your trip. I read the reviews often and I see how your team offers to fix the hiccups immediately. I enjoyed the options of lodging, restaurants and so on. Thank you for your due diligence.
Gets me where I need to go.
by justme nonickname on 2019/04/07 03:01
The only problem I have is that I can’t have more than one destination. On a recent trip we wanted to make a stop and sightsee before going to the hotel. I couldn’t put in both places at the same time. Would like to see that feature added.
Favorite map app!
by aiglevolant on 2019/04/06 21:34
I have four map programs on my iPhone and this is by far the best! I used it for navigation against my son’s Google maps, traveling from Big Bear, CA to LA, and Mapquest won! I’ve been using Mapquest for years and thought it was time I expressed appreciation and gratitude for an app I’ve been depending on for years!
Great app
by Catmandutoo on 2019/04/06 15:06
I would rate it 5 but the only change I would like is when you enter destination the screen defaults to alpha and I would like to see numeric first as most addresses have numbers before Street name. Time to destination is usually pretty accurate.
UPDATE NEEDED BADLY
by Ron0630 on 2019/04/06 10:40
We have owned our farm for six years. The map currently shows the same picture today as it did then. Mapquest doesn’t even list our address! It can’t be blamed on “satellite images” because other map sites at least have the correct photo! Every time I give directions- I literally have to write it down. It is 2019- time to update your maps & records or get some new engineers.
Confused
by Dramaqieenmom on 2019/04/05 05:03

My favorite app
by oniedu on 2019/04/04 23:27
I use this app all of the time! Very user friendly. I like that you get two or three choices of routes. I also use this to calculate length of trips in our RV. Best app ever!

Outstanding app. Superior to the navigation system I paid for when I purchased my GMC pickup. GMC navigational system so faulty I stopped using it. I now rely on Mapquest. It has not given me faulty directions yet.
Bad App

None of the features work.
Good and bad
by bergmansam on 2018/08/03 22:00
The good part was that while traveling there were several accidents that google maps told us would cause significant delays, but couldn’t/didn’t give us any alternative routes. Neither did Apple maps. Mapquest gave us the alternative and even alternatives to that route when it started getting backed up. Neither G nor A gave additional alternatives even once knowing we were on a different road. The bad part is that the available map size was notably smaller than the others, jumped around more, took longer to get the info, and often the names of roads on the map were too small to read easily, and when the map was expanded the street name often disappeared rather than getting larger and more readable. I find it easier to follow a map, especially if I’m navigating for another driver, rather than following verbal directions that assume you can estimate distances at 50-60 mph. All 3 of the map apps seem to want to jump to that too easily. I don’t know which did it the most, but I did find that with MQ it was difficult to get back to the map without deleting and then putting the destination back in and then at times it wouldn’t/couldn’t connect easily despite having service.
Better Option
by Back Road Master on 2018/12/20 23:50
I like MapQuest better than the system in my car or Google maps because it gives me the option of 2 to 3 different routes to take. I can then see which route has the least traffic and select that one. The others only default to the one option and you get what you get. Today I was coming home from Santa Fe Springs California to Ventura California. And The route that I chose had me go through the five freeway. However at a certain section when I had the option to choose the 101 or the five freeway it had me take the 101. I noticed that the 5 was at a dead stop at the intersection. All the 101 flowed. And then it had me take the next offramp and I was on city streets. I was a little confused but I thought I would go with it to see what happened. And what it did was it took me through non-congested city streets back onto the five freeway via the 110 freeway which eliminated me from having to be stuck in bumper to bumper traffic for quite a distance. That I thought was a winner!
Wrong name and can not get it fixed
by chief turtle 5 on 2018/09/11 01:46
I live in a small town. There is one Street with the right direction on and our Street with the wrong direction on it. When you travel north on a road, and it is call North Street ( any name will do.) And when you get to the next town , you will be on the south side of town but our Street is call north , than when you continue to drive north you come to the north side of town but it is call south. I have reported this problem but I was told it can take six months to fix the problem. I am so glad that my mail and packages still gets delivered to my house , because I still use South on my address. But I have had some business, say that I gave them the wrong address. I have to say where is the sun , what time is it, so which way is north, also do you have a compass on your phone. But do you know that people think map quest can not be wrong. So it takes time to get the business to think about it. But we have had to get things delivered a couple of days later because of this. And if people try to find our house at night, I have to give them land marks to look for. Then they can see that this places are also in the wrong place on map quest. This has been these way for years now.
My Opinion “never get lost again”
by Really X2 Really! on 2018/10/23 11:59
I used a different app for a while and got sick of constantly taking the long way around, which is the only directions it seemed to give. This app “so far, so good” I believe In my opinion that it is the most “updated” app for current directions. This app even had the name of a brand new road to a housing development that there was only one home built so far. After updating both my Tom Tom and other app, neither one had the name of the road posted; actually one of them didn’t even show that there was a new road made, as this once was woods. Along with directions for driving, they also supply excellent routes for walking to your destination. I know this is long and detailed but when u are lost in an area “with no road names,” scared, and now need gas from driving in circles, finding this app with correct directions home was priceless. If one person reads the whole thing and they never go through that, it is worth the write.
Too late for turns
by Lost Work Traveler on 2017/12/08 02:41
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.
Long time user
by kathrine_79 on 2018/05/17 01:18
I’ve been using MapQuest since before apps existed. When they created their app, I didn’t hesitate and it has never, ever let me down. If I stop somewhere unexpectedly, it recalculates quickly so that I can get back on track in moments. That I can turn it on for long trips and play it through my car speakers without shutting my music off helps too. It simply pauses my music and says what it needs to say. I have absolutely never had a problem with MapQuest service. I recommend it to others and I even use it to help people who are from out of town to figure out how to get where they need to go! Being able to adjust some of the settings is amazing as well! I get to avoid most toll roads, and if I choose to avoid highways completely it can locate which route will work best for me that way as well. This app, and the paper copies before it, have taken me all over the country. I won’t even consider using another service!
Best for me .
by M3HUL on 2018/05/13 01:32
I’m a letter carrier, in December we have to deliver so many parcels and I was very new at this job so don’t know much about 100’s of street and my truck was full of parcels to deliver, so I gave a shot to use Mapquest because it tell me which side houses are are on street, then I figured the BEST part of this app which is it let me put 25 addresses at the same time which made my life so easy and I can see which one comes first and then I start arranging them in order in app and in my truck, one more thing I wish this app would do is let me put around 100 address at the same time and after I put all the address it should arrange all the address accordingly street wise like which street is close by will come first and which one is far it will go last and that will save my more time , because right now that part I have to do manually. I hope they will do this in feature, over all its best for me. I love it, it my work buddy. Thanks guys. Keep it up.
Great maps app!!
by Mf1129 on 2018/03/19 21:57
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!!
Mapquest is sending error msgs ‘try again’
by Kansasbred on 2019/04/02 19:39
I gave the app a great review a year or so ago, which is below. But what’s the deal with Mapquest, I put in an address that I’ve used before and it sends me an ‘error’ message and says to try again. I tried different addresses and it gives me this error every time?? It’s very aggravating it does nothing but spin as if it’s loading info but will only drain the life out of your phone instead. Please tell me you’re addressing this issue, I didn’t realize how much I relied on Mapquest until I couldn’t get it to load directions. I started using Mapquest over 5 years ago after Google maps took us to a vacant pasture for our daughters out of state track meet. I downloaded Mapquest immediately to put us in the right place. Our daughter ran collegiate level with us following her across many states, from Illinois to Florida. Mapquest has never led my husband and I astray. I won’t use any other mapping service. I love that it gives you alternative routes when possible. Thank you, Mapquest!
Great Navigation app
by Mp87 on 2018/04/11 22:10
I love this app! Easy to use and many features it offers like the layouts and re-route, and gives you few options to pick from the beginning And Many more:) I pick this over waze or google map unless I get in trouble Just one thing to mention and for first time it gave me a little trouble was: the final destination was close to highway (28 North in VA) and in the highway stopped by saying I’m arrived and location is on the right! instead of take me from different road and take me to the address where I could park! Sorry it’s hard to explain but I think you got what happened. So if there is any way to fix it to take the user closer to the address would be great so I don’t have to stop in the highway where I could see the building but not a great place to leave my car lol But thanks a lot for making this great app available for us:)
Much better mapping system
by Cldtmpst on 2018/11/20 23:06
I downloaded this app a few years ago, and quite honestly (and I apologize developers) it wasn’t junk, but I wouldn’t trust it to drive down the street. Many addresses would not show up, the map would change directions in the middle of turns, and things like that. However, I’m happy to report that this version works better to me than Apple Maps, and Google maps. I like how the map flows, and I like the information that it provides. I don’t know how often it updates new roads, because we’ve had a new road open through our housing area about a year ago. But it’s OK, I can live with little small things. All in all, I would really recommend this GPS mapping system, and glad to know they worked out a lot of bugs. Remember developers (and this is very important), “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it!”👍
I like it !
by roodydue on 2019/02/15 11:31
I recently downloaded this app only last night , so I’m going to wait a little to rate . And will be back to write a more extensive review However I did want to mention that I used the app for my morning commute to work just to see how it operates . The app really has everything you need , though I think the navigators voice could use an update as it sounds a little too robotic . I was happy to not be disappointed 🎶 . I’ve been trying other gps apps to get away from IOS due to its lack of dependability. I tried Waze yesterday morning and it wanted to take me some wonky way to work . This morning however , though my route was not all together my usual route , your app took me a way I hadn’t thought of before avoiding several stop lights , adding no extra time to my morning commute . I do a lot of driving for work , and I will be giving this app a work out today .
Often upside down and not timely
by Vashongal on 2019/05/21 17:34
It baffles me why sometimes the map is oriented backwards (I.e. the direction I am driving is shown on the map as I’m moving down the screen and actual upcoming right turns are indicated as going the other way). I can turn the map around with my fingers but why is it wrong in the first place? And sometimes it’s fine but lately the map is often upside down. Mapquest should have a “reorientation” button just like Google Maps has. Also, the voice directions come so late that I often miss exits or turns which can cause much delay and aggravation when I have to then reroute to get back on track. Voice directions need to be delivered a bit sooner! And if I’m in an area that requires multiple turns in relatively short succession, forget it...mapquest is useless in these situations because it can’t keep up. Other navigation apps do a much better job with providing timely directions.
The online page works better
by Elijersmijer on 2018/11/01 15:47
I didn’t want to rare this app with stars because I just got it. But there’s no alternative, to leave feedback you have to give a star rating. I downloaded the app because I wanted to check on future traveling options from a location to another location other than where I am right now. Period. But The app will not let me put in two places other than where I am. One of my choices on this app has to be my current location and since I’m trying to find directions to and from places other than where I am it won’t work. A message comes up demanding to know my current location and freezes the app until I allow location services. there is no way of overriding the current location thing. The online page will let me do that without current location. This app may or may not work for me.
Easy to use
by HPpy User on 2019/01/14 18:28
We will be going on a trip to a city far from our home. We will be staying at a central location and visiting a number of other locations. Mapquest has been a huge help in scheduling us visiting all these secondary locations and finding the distance between them. The program saves each address so it is not necessary to continue to enter any address more than once. It also should be a help at anytime a person does know where he/she is but wants to know how far it is to a certain address as it has the word “current” which locates where you are. NOW, just hope the GPS is accurate and doesn’t say “we have arrived” when we haven’t like some GPS systems do. I shall return here if I have problems!!
Poor Customer Relations
by Paralegal-Al on 2018/10/03 21:58
I am very disappointed in Regency Car wash!! A section on my back bumper was damaged by the wash. When I brought it to the manager on site attention she referred me to a general manager. When I spoke with this GM “Jose Nestali” he was very rude with no customer service skills. He demanded that I send pictures of the damage, which I did. He said he would call me back within an hour which he never did. I call him instead. He said that he had spoken to his boss and that they would not do anything about the damage. I asked if I could speak to his boss. He told me that he would text me his phone number, which he never did. After several days I called him again and again he said that he would text his boss number to me and again he did not, until I sent him a text indicating that I had consulted with an attorney. The people that run this car wash only cares about making money. They do not Care about their customers!! I rate Regency Car Wash a big fat zero.
Near Perfection
by Skye2blu on 2018/05/23 14:01
I am now completely fearless driving in totally unknown places with this app. I do glance at it, as well as listen, so I hear the immediate directions and can also see the (right/left) upcoming turn so as to be in the correct lane. I find it amazingly accurate. Twice now it’s re-routed me so I can avoid traffic jams. That’s seriously golden. It works in rural area as well... in the middle of nowhere it found a cut-through dirt road that got me over to another state highway without having to drive miles around... it just cut through and I knew to trust it although it looked wrong. Shortly I was there. Had I driven around it would have taken much longer. I cannot think of any real improvement unless it can drive my car 🚗!
Mayhem
by BDChange on 2017/12/04 23:41
1 star is overly generous. The party booked 3 months in advance and paid in full was not delivered. Email confirmations received. All details changed day of due to overbooking on day of event. 2 hour party time changed by 2 hours and was limited to 1 hour when too late to change guest invitations. No place to put cake and food as the “party room” and food services booked and paid was also reduced to 2 tables for almost 20 people. We were not alone. Several other families showed up only to find their details were changed without notice too. Talking with the owner was not helpful in correcting the situation and a refund was not given. Not even a discount. Not even an apology. Just sharing though even advance booking and confirmations were given, they were not honored. Booking is the customer agreeing to the party deliverables but not, apparently, the establishment delivering as promised...”contracted”. Fail on child birthday party. :-(
Good
by Ms CL Who on 2018/11/30 01:55
I only use MapQuest when traveling. One of the features I like is when you’re on a major highway with several lanes it is very explicit as to what lane you need to be in to make your next turn. For instance if there are two lanes going off to the left it tells you to be in the right lane of the two left lanes. That is very helpful. Prepares you for your next turn. I prefer the list mode when traveling because I like to see the entire route before travelling. After taking an exit I like to see what the next direction is so I know what lane I need to be in. I also like that it reroutes quickly if you decide to take a different road.
Glitches and No sign in
by Kristennnn. on 2018/10/01 17:38
(iPhone user) I love this app, but I have noticed a few issues. There will be times where I am using the map and it will crash for no reason, on to keep crashing each time I open the app or whenever I am looking at the route selected. Also, when this happens so often, I am pretty much forced to delete the app and reinstall it. This leads to all of my information and settings being cleared away. There is not a sign in option for an account in order to save my information and settings either. I vaguely remember being able to sign in a long time ago, but not sure why I can’t now. If these issues were fixed I’d love the app even more, but until then I just remain frustrated.
Great App - 4.5 to 5 Stars!!!
by BX ROAD DIVA on 2018/09/29 15:14
I must say that most of the time Mapquest will be able to find a location when the gps in my car cannot. It also usually finds the shortest route. Yet, sometimes there are areas that do not show up with a clear address of a location and will only give you an AREA of where you are going. This can be due to the location being a new development or an area where there are new developments nearby. I wish I could give a half star for that one. However, overall, I usually double check with my Mapquest app to see if I can find a quicker route. I love the fact that it gives you 3 route options! Great app!
Better than Google Maps in LA in a rush hour test
by Spgleit on 2019/03/19 16:48
Traveling from Venice to Downtown LA at around 5 pm for a 6:30 dinner reservation, I pulled up the GM app and it said 1 hr 34 minutes. For some reason, I decided to try MQ, which gave me 3 routes to select from, the quickest being 55 minutes. Well, I put MQ on silent and GM thru the Apple Car Play and set off. As I followed MQ, the time remaining on GM to my utter amazement kept decreasing. It’s as if GM was immediately able to see what MQ was doing and agreed with its route. My question: why didn’t GM see this route at all. My only error on the whole trip was to follow GM once the two apps were similar in time. Leaving the MQ app at that juncture resulted in losing at least 5 minutes. The end result: MQ took 65 minutes - 5 being my fault. Disgusted at GM, I shut it off when I resumed following MQ. Most salient feature: finding LA streets that were practically empty at rush hour. I could not believe it; yet I experienced it. Thanks MQ. Now my go to app for an extended trial in the field. spgleit
Great for multi point trip planning
by Kboczek on 2018/01/05 16:27
See google recently started multiple destination entry but fails at giving me the information i need... I need both total miles and time.... Mapquest is still my go to app for that. When driving truck and faced with a "can you do it" question, you need the answer quickly. I cant be zipping along and adding up every route on a calculator. Sofar the on thing i dont like is where it fills the map with green blotches that i dont know how to get rid of... As for request. No app out there or device has ability to turn on or off tolls state specific and or toll roads vs bridges... Will you be the first? Green circles? Please make option to remove . My whole map is green!
Best one out there
by DesertRain102938 on 2018/04/06 22:13
I’ve used MapQuest for years. To avoid being in the wrong lane at the wrong time I always review the listed details prior to using the voice directions. Just pull over & stop & look. Then you have a better idea of what you need to do. Re routing hasn’t been much of a problem as it generally updates quickly in a city where signal is good. Sometimes the app might put the address on the wrong side of the road but not too often & as long as I’m close, I’m good with that. I can read the address numbers on the buildings. Better than most gps guidance apps!
Some issues
by Imdavef on 2018/01/29 22:34
I’ve always liked mapquest and it’s usually done well to get me where I need to go. Lately it’s been doing two things that have me thinking of trying other gps apps. First, it will give me two or three route choices and I’ll select one and start driving. After a while I realize it has changed my route to one of the other choices. If I wanted to go that route I’d have selected it. Second, when I’m stuck in traffic it will reroute me off an exit ramp and right back on the highway supposedly to save me a minute. Which it doesn’t, because the. I have to merge back into heavy traffic. This is terribly annoying.
Maps Out of Date
by Lenitaly on 2018/01/24 18:19
I recently started using Mapquest as one of my GPS directions. I drive through the Dallas TX area most days on my route, where they have been doing major construction changes to the mixmaster area, with most of it completed now. I was surprised to find that renamed exists, newer routes and roads, and new ramps were not included in the latest updates. Some of these changes have been in existence for months now and exit numbers for one older ramp may apply to something totally different now. I hope they take a look at the new Horseshoe configuration of the downtown Dallas area which would include i30, I 35e, Spur 366, etc and see if some updates can be included in the next tweak.
Very Intuitive
by Pie+destroyer on 2018/01/04 01:51
I find MapQuest very easy to use, and like using it a lot. It doesn’t re-route you automatically if there is traffic, which is nice because you get the choice. I also love the fact that it shows two directions ahead on the top of the screen, and the list is easy to access. One feature that I love and haven’t seen in any other app, is the fact that you can choose your route from the very beginning, and it gives you a few choices. Overall, a great navigation app, which I prefer to both Waze and google maps.
Travel Safety
by Ewill77 on 2018/11/12 19:20
Thanks to MapQuest, I successfully drove to Florida and back last summer while on vacation. At this time, MapQuest quickly pointed me to the nearest checkpoint using the most efficient route. I love the audio feature; which adds safety in not having to look at a physical map while driving. I also appreciate the traffic and toll alerts so I may appropriately prepare. I understand there are currently audio tech difficulties with the app. Customer service has been prompt in helping me troubleshoot these issues. I have every confidence they will work this out so my family may enjoy many more road trips. ☺️ Thank you!
Lead me through tolls, and around circles
by Brutus_The_Abyssinian on 2019/02/26 23:24
Yesterday, the app wasn’t producing sound and started to crash right when opening it. I cleared the data, closed and reopened it. Reinstalled , repeated.. again and again and even updated. Even when reinstalling it would show my last trip when double clicking the home button as if I typed in that address but didn’t. Reopening does nothing, It still just crashes. Another thing I’ve noticed is that recently when selecting no tolls, it will still lead you through tolls. And then today after reinstalling it, now it doesn’t crash and works again.
Doesn’t Meet my Needs
by Nicholas237 on 2018/10/04 15:15
I have a few things I need from a nav app: Accurate ETA Either offline maps or a modest use of cellular data Easy to follow maps Routes that let me avoid high crime areas A clean app that doesn’t use up my storage with caches data that I can’t get rid of This is the third app I’ve used for navigation. What I like about MQ is that it doesn’t use a lot of cell data unlike google maps as long as you don’t turn in satellite However I find the maps hard to follow. Sometimes I’m following a blue or yellow path and inexplicably the arrow starts going on an uncolored path and I’m not sure if I’m going the right way. Other time the arrow just disappears Sometime it reroutes me into dangerous high crime areas The eta estimations are way off even for short commutes it starts by saying eta is an hour then it ends up being an hour and a half It’s pretty clean and doesn’t spew cache files like google maps But because I have a hard time following the maps and because it routes through high crime areas and because the etas are off I don’t recommend it
Need to sync Mapquest online maps with the app
by Motocycle Rider on 2018/01/30 01:43
Creating MapQuest routes online is fairly easy and straight forward, especially multi stop routes. But you cannot reliably get them to the MapQuest app, making them useless! I can share/text them to my phone but I’m lucky if one out of four will actually port to the app and work. Otherwise this would be the perfect app, especially for planning motorcycle trips. I’ve had to resort to using Scenic and Google maps, works great. For planning routes point A to point B on the fly, the Mapquest app is as good or better than most others. Just can’t use it for serious route planning. I wish you could sync maps you’ve saved online with the app, I’d give it 100 stars!!
What happened?
by WriterandArtist on 2017/12/22 14:35
I have used MapQuest for many years, starting when it was a web program and I printed directions. I've been using it as an app for years and it's been dependable and friendly. It was my go-to program for navigation. But as of December 21, 2017, that's changing. I had to drive from my dads house to the location of the family Christmas party, back and forth, three times in one day. I do t know the area and I don't have a fine-enough map to figure out a route. I tried to calculate a route the same way I've always done-- but the app kept hanging. I'd get to the page where it gives two routes and the screen would freeze. All key presses ignored. I had to end the program by up-swiping. I turned my iPhone 5 off and on, tried again. Over and over, same result. What a letdown. I ended up going to a gas station, where the guys were friendly and gave me directions. I downloaded version 5.13 this morning, but the program still hangs. I'm sooo disappointed. I'm going to download google maps now. Sorry. I'll rate this app 2 stars, but only for what it used to be. Not for what it is.
Concerned , miss using MapQuest
by Lovepongo on 2017/10/14 12:29
I used to love this app, this being the only map application i use it for everything. however after the last couple of upgrades there I was being some addresses that I'm not able to yet I continue to receive the oops message. However if I use the other application named Maps unable to find the address. Please let me know what could be going wrong with the upgrades I am a Verizon user and my phone is an iPhone seven. This the second time sending this message , I get a message there is a response but I am not able to view it. Can it be email to me?
Update deleted Favorites, Previous destinations
by G3l7 on 2018/06/20 13:37
I would love to leave the five stars it usually deserves but this latest update removed all of my previous destinations and favorites. Some of them had not been added to my contacts (that’s on me) but I was always able to rely on MapQuest to remember things like that. That is half of its purpose. This is more than disappointing. Places lost are lost forever, and this impact on my life is unappreciated. Whoever is responsible for this little mistake at AOL needs to have a job performance review and reassignment. Also, another reviewer mentioned that voice directions are slow. They’ve only gotten slower with this update. You need to add something like “make the next right, AND the next turn will be a …” so you know to get into the correct lane.
Best app but a few glitches.
by pattykayl on 2018/07/16 23:59
Love this app. It is the best one I’ve found. Beats Google all to pieces. It almost always gets me to the front door of where I’m going. It even is usually up to date on construction. I do wish that it would tell you lanes and turns sooner than what it does. I have sat in the wrong lane only to have it tell me to turn and it’s impossible. It’s too late. I can’t always be looking at the pictures for a turning arrow. I prefer to use this app on my phone rather than the navigation on my car. It’s much quicker to enter data and the other has gotten me lost many times. Thank you.
Generally ok
by Tremommy on 2018/02/28 11:50
I use MQ all the time driving through/across Central FL. Most of the time it is great...but yesterday I was in new area with lots of traffic looking for a certain shop, and it took me to a very scary area in the back of the shopping center (an the store I was looking for was nowhere around!)...it has some issues with telling me at the last minute to turn off I-4 (no way to get across 4 lanes of construction traffic-with every speed between stopped and 80mph-safely). Also in an area I'm familiar with and know there is a shorter way, it doesn't even give that option. Good for avoiding tolls though!
In Lake Tahoe this app is better than any

This app was by far the best app I’ve ever, ever used. I have used many and by far was this easiest to use. This will be my new app that is for sure. Get this I promise ladies very simple to use. Thank you! Brilliant and easy Then went to my doctors office where other maps have got me lost. Not this one It took me through a beautiful canyons and I was at the office with 40 min to spare. Love love this map and will use always. Sooooo easy to use where others are very confusing. Download I promise you will be soooo happy.
Honestly this App has all the things you have wanted

You would think Goggle, Map Quest, Apple and others would have all the custom applications this App has. The app allows you to stay off different types of roads, shows different directions, lets you change your icon let’s you pick from long list of items to give notifications of. Example fuel. But many more then allows to choose anything like Baby store, or basketball courts. To the developer “HATS OFF & I’ll be looking at other apps you may offer.
New iOS support needed!
by RuggyBir on 2018/09/18 23:49
I just moved up to iOS 12, and the app’s voice has changed and it seems very sluggish. This morning it didn’t tell me to turn until a block after I turned. Nevertheless I’m giving it 5 stars. I’m sure the glitch is temporary and this is the best mapping app there is. I’m bereft without it! It’s much better at handling construction by-passes than my Garmin. I use it daily because my city has all the roads ripped up. MapQuest takes me a different route daily and I’m always very pleased. Please upgrade it soon! 😄
What I Like Best
by seniorkathy on 2019/05/18 18:04
Your product gives a choice of Map View or List of Streets and Turns. You can also flip back and forth. I like to see the names of the streets and directions to give me an idea of what to expect, instead of a map only. Once, on the way to catch a flight, Mapquest directed me off the freeway and on to a frontage road. It turned out that the freeway was stopped for several miles. Without that suggested detour our flight would have been missed. Thanks for a product that I can enjoy.
New to this app
by MissDogLover on 2019/01/13 17:09
I installed MapQuest as alternative to the Google Map app because I am unable to get written driving instructions from the Google app due to a Lyft & Uber app popping up which denies access to written driving instructions. Very frustrated having to go they searches to remove the app from Google apps! I have used MapQuest and it is great! MapQuest offers many options as well. I feel I made the right decision to discontinue Google Maps. Also, the Lyft & Uber was not downloaded or installed by me, it was there by no choice of my own. Happy to have MapQuest!
Best choice out of 2
by Beekums on 2018/09/01 15:19
When it comes to mapping apps there are the two majors and all the rest. I’ve only tried the two big ones. Mapquest is better. Period. Its audio directions are easy to understand. It adjust within seconds when I choose to adjust my route. And, I believe it has the fastest reaction time to changing road conditions (accidents up ahead, etc.). With Google Maps I feel like I’m being forced to live in its world rather than the real world where I'm actually driving.
Praises
by Sir Touché on 2017/11/08 16:08
This is the best app out there for travelers who don't want to get lost or rerouted after a navigation device has sent you down the wrong street it's totally the best I'm a CDL driver an it's my life saver when garmin gets lost or can't find a new location of a new street.I love the fact that it monitors my speed an if there's three routes available it lets the driver choose, the only reason I don't use it 100% of the time, cause it's not setup for truck routes... thanks for MapQuest makes my job a relaxing one
MQ review
by Esiner on 2019/04/24 17:08
I like and use MQ a lot! I do have a problem with a couple of things though. When I zoom in to read the road names the names either get smaller or disappear. The roads get bigger. No help with that ! Lol sometimes I have to go to google maps to know the street names. The other thing I wish you would add is bridge heights. Sometimes I have some tall stuff in the back of my pickup that won’t allow me to go under low bridges. I don’t want to pay for a tractor & trailer expensive version just to know that. Also, I wanted to know do you offer a version of that for truckers? I have been ask that. I wasn’t sure.
Mapquest is great
by LG12! on 2019/02/15 15:23
I used Mapquest all the time when it was first developed. Then with the rise of the iPhone and smartphones I used Google maps ( hate it). I would voice my complaints and say how I loved Mapquest and people said no one uses Mapquest any more. I decided to download it. I am back in love with Mapquest!!!! It is easy to use and see the map. The voice reminds you before you are at the turn to turn. It is lovely. It is better than google, apple maps, and waze Thank you.
Loved the app up till recently
by Armygirl1715 on 2017/10/18 02:54
I'm not sure what's going on, must be the most recent update or something, but the ETA isn't working right. It keeps jumping around and it seems the only way to get the ETA to be anywhere near accurate is to cancel the current route and restart from wherever I'm at. Then it mostly fixes it. Also I don't seem to be getting the best routes anymore. Not sure how to explain that one anymore than just it just doesn't seem to be quite what it was. Keep in mind I have been a die hard MapQuest fan for a good decade (proly more) so for me to have any complaints is a shock to me too!!
Love MapQuest app but...
by Dlphayes on 2018/09/12 02:08
I love the app and prefer it to other apps on my iPhone 7 but there is one thing that drives me CRAZY! I prefer the map view but I HATE the way the map zooms in and re-orients every time I make a turn or exit or take a fork in the road or highway. I wish there was a way to effectively turn that feature off. I’ve tried by nothing seems to work. I would like to simply maintain a “big picture” view of the map so I can just glance at it to make sure I’m on track instead of having to “un-zoom” again and again. PLEASE HELP!
Happy traveler

I've had this app for quite some time now and I've found it to be very good and fairly actuate. I prefer to use Mapquest over google maps. For me entering a location in Mapquest is much easier. I will admit in some locations it does not "recalculate" fast enough (ex Boston) causing extra driving and time lost. And there has been the occasional incorrect directions like it says turn right but the map itself is pointing left. But overall Mapquest is my go to navigation app.
Only 2 Routes, None the Shortest
by mhpdfp on 2018/02/27 13:08
Took several try’s to get it to take a route as it does not assume your starting point is where you are currently at. Not really a flaw just different than the other navigation apps. Gave two fastest routes but not the shortest which is always faster due to traffic on the other routes. Had to force it not to use those routes by using the no toll road option. If your only going to give 2 options why not the fastest and the shortest? An extra hypothetical ten minute time saving on a 5 hour trip isn’t worth $$ tolls and additional miles on my vehicle.
