It's an OK map to use when Waze isn't working.. Also I cannot stress how important it is for any software developer to release good and meaningful release notes. How else would a user be well informed on whether or not to update without risking an update to break something? Release Notes make things a lot more update friendly. Please don't skip that in any of your future releases like many developers do and like you'll did in the past recent versions...
Its great! Less than 1/3 the footprint of Maps. Not as polished in appearance, no offline maps, and no voice search out of the box. A voice enabled keyboard fixes the latter. All in all, its comparing apples to oranges. I do like the ability to share my location via text, email etc There is also a feature to compare travel expense (Uber vs fuel). The only ads are partnered roadside assistance and Uber. No nagging or banner ads.
My husband and I traveled from Nebraska to Austin to attend our son's wedding. After studying atlas map and printing out some online maps we were both exhausted. I did a Yahoo search for Star Hill Ranch near Bee Cave. Mapquest responded, and I installed the software. It was like having a new friend. Made our days in Austin, and later a day in San Antonio/Riverwalk/Alamo much more fun.
The only thing I don't like is when I'm in midtown Houston, the app won't find the right road out.. so then I'll have to turn to Google maps. Another issue is, I don't like looking at my phone when I'm driving and I'll get told my exit is coming up at the last minute. Other than that, its a bit useful.
Used half my data! While I was home, my phone got disconnected from my router. I was sleeping at the time, and MapQuest wasn't even on (hadn't used it in several weeks in fact). When I woke up, on the first day of my monthly data plan, over 400 MB of my data was gone, used by MapQuest. Ridiculous that not using an app requires THAT much data! Want a setting within the app so it asks me before using cell data so I have control over how my data plan is used. Seems reasonable since they aren't paying for the data plan.
I finally found a gps that you can make your own route the way you want it!!! to bad the the app has been crashing and when you go to reopen app and go back to your personal route it starts you from beginning of your route witch is not helpful when your already on the move....please fix and you can pass other competitors
We’re on version 3.9.6, but hadn’t had new release notes since 3.9.0. If you hadn’t noticed, pretend we didn’t say that. If you did notice, this is for you.
We hadn’t released any new features since 3.9.0 so we didn’t want to bother you with notes (let’s be real, we didn’t want to sit down and write multiple versions saying the exact same thing). However, we did fix crashes and update support for older Android versions so we quietly made six, small updates. Hopefully this clarifies things!
