Ratings and Reviews
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!

That's so great to hear! Thanks for the review. *AW
We have used Mapquest for a long time, because of all the features that it has. The routing has been getting progressively worse. We drove from NH to SC and back and the app is trying to get us stuck every chance it gets. It wants us to take some strange routes. Not nearly as bad as other apps *cough .. google.. *cough. The newest feature that makes no sense is that it routes us off of every exit and then back on, which as you can imagine, is not a time saving solution. This particular feature has caused real problems since you can’t drive without a navigator to check each turn to see if it should happen. The other big one that caused issues is that Mapquest changes what it’s calling roads. For example.. if you are turning near a populated area the app will tell you to turn on 83 then turn onto 581 then to a street name. All 3 are the same road. The craziest part of the trip by far was using a second phone to navigate manually so we didn’t get stuck in NY City, Washington DC, or any other traffic heavy area. The last few years there has been a downward trend of all the map apps giving worse and worse directions. I was hoping Mapquest would not follow suit, but here we are.
Not all features are worth the app not working Mapquest.
Good and bad
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.

Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that. We know there is always room for improvement, so we’ll definitely make note of this and share it with our product team to see what they think.
