And MapQuest officially enters the Android navigation arena. Can it compete with Google Maps? Eh, probably not, but it still looks like a great app. Unlike other navigation options, MapQuest is offering theirs up for free and includes voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation and a bunch of other goodies. Seriously, if GMaps disappeared from existence, we’d fall back on this one.
- Voice-guided/Turn-by-turn Navigation: Your phone tells you where and when to make a turn
- Voice Search: Drivers can speak a destination for directions
- Map Toolbar: Easily find restaurants, coffee shops, gas stations and parking with one click
- Walking & Driving Directions: Recommends the best route and the map rotates based on orientation of travel
- Live Traffic Flow/Incidents: Extensive coverage updated every 5 minutes
You can use this Download Link to grab the app, but we recommend that you watch the video below since it’s clear that they spent some serious bro-time on it.
