The MapQuest app will be able to not only locate your destination but also guide you there with voice-guided instructions. As mentioned, this GPS route tracker app features voice-guided directions, all free, that take you through your route turn-by-turn. The GPS navigation system closely resembles those pricey GPS systems you might have been looking at, offering you the same sort of features, with no dent in the wallet. You will be able to perform searches easily for such places as restaurants, gas stations, shopping, entertainment, personal addresses, whatever it is you’re searching for. As well, you’ll be able to stay on top of the traffic while driving thanks to a live traffic update feature. If you miss a turn, or make a wrong turn, not to worry because MapQuest will immediately find a new route for you.
New in this version are some very cool features such as the live traffic cameras, that will look at what the road conditions are ahead of you. The live traffic is updated every five minutes, so you’re sure to get the very latest information. With today’s rising gas prices the new Gas Prices feature is a real bonus. This tool will help you locate the absolute cheapest gas prices around you. Other features include being able to map out multiple-stop trips if that’s what’s need, the ability to use personalized avatars and landscape view. If voice directions aren’t what you want, you do have the ability to turn the voice option off while keeping the directions going. The directions also feature helpful tips as you continue along your route.
Although the route tracking app is completely free, it is important to note that your carrier may charge for data usage. Perhaps it’s not driving directions you need, maybe you need walking directions. If that’s the case, MapQuest still has you covered and will give you the optimal route. There is even a handy button you can press to basically re-centre your position during your trip.
