If you are someone who travels a lot and would not only like an application that will help you get to your destination, but also find out which businesses are in the area, as well as other great features, perhaps you should try using Mapquest 4 Mobile.
Mapquest 4 Mobile is similar to the Apple Maps application that comes installed on the iPhone. However, Mapquest 4 Mobile has more feature than the iPhone’s map application, including voice guided directions, so that you don’t have to look at your iPhone to see when to turn and such when you’re driving.
Also, Mapquest 4 Mobile features the ability to see where a variety of different businesses and destinations, and other things are, such as how traffic is, as well as where restaurants, hotels, stores, gas stations, coffee shops, post offices, and more are located. If you would like to find out where a destination is, you can do so by simply tapping on one of the variety of icons, located under the Mapquest 4 Mobile map, that is related to the business you would like to locate.
Once you’ve tapped on a destination or business, you should see little icons on the map, where the destination or business that you selected are.
Mapquest 4 Mobile also features voice guided directions, which is a great feature if you’re driving and don’t want to look over at your iPhone to see where to turn or go next.
Another feature of Mapquest 4 Mobile is the ability to save locations in the “My Places” tab of the application. When you select a saved location, you will be able to see where it is located on the map. You can also choose to get directions to or from a saved location, as well as e-mail the location to someone.
The Mapquest 4 Mobile application also features three different energy saving settings, which include “Low Savings”, which means that your iPhone screen will remain on, unless you shut if off, “Medium Savings”, which means that your iPhone will auto-lock, but you will still receive guidance notifications, and “High Savings”, which means that your iPhone will auto-lock in order to save power.
If you would like to try using Mapquest 4 Mobile, you can download it from the iTunes App Store for free.
