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.
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
This program has gotten stupid! Tried doing navigation today and it figured my current location was 30 miles away from where I really was. How ridiculous! Tried it again today and it kept trying to route me thru areas that had nothing to do with where I was actually going. Uninstalled!!
Love MapQuest as it is exceptional due to it does not turn off midway as others have, it gets me where I need to go without issues, and the voice is easy to listen to. I can go short or long trips without worrying. That is comforting as I get lost easy. Thanks MapQuest for being professional, reliable, and quick to respond to emails. To all of you that work there I highly recommend a raise!!!
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!
