Mapquest is a recognized provider of free driving directions and maps online, I’ve been using map quest directions for over 12 years, this excellent internet mapping service has money saving tools that have helped me save hundreds of miles, and also hundreds of dollars.
Mapquest is one of the oldest internet mapping sites, the service was launched online in 1996, after 15 years this web mapping company is still considered one of the best, however, Google Maps is currently considered the number one online mapping site in the world, but I think that Mapquest directions are still more popular and maybe even more reliable in North America.
Now you can even access this service through any mobile device that allows you to browse the web, all you have to do is open up your phone’s browser and type mapquest.com, or you can download the free m4m app. The mapquest app for mobile offers very interesting features like skyhook technology and voice guided navigation.
Most drivers that use the internet know that Mapquest directions are accurate, short, quick, and easy to understand, I have been using this service for a very long time and till this day it has never failed me, not even once, the service is so good that now even my dad and my mom are using it, and they don’t even know how to use email.
Mapquest was the first internet mapping site that I ever used, after using MQ for the first time I became very interested about online mapping softwares, and since then I have used most of the free online mapping sites that are available to us. Now I’m quite familiar with sites like Yahoo Maps, Bing Maps, Expedia, Via Michelin, Rand McNally, and many more, but my favorite alternative to Mapquest is definitely Google Maps.
If you are located in the European continent, don’t worry, because you can use Via Michelin, which is perhaps the most utilized online mapping service in Europe, this site also provides free driving directions, and high quality interactive maps. There’s another popular internet mapping site in Europe known as Mappy, the only problem with Mappy is that it is only available for french speaking countries, while V. Michelin is available worldwide.
