MapQuest have released MapQuest 4 Mobile with a ton of support for older BlackBerry devices, but a limited amount of support for newer models such as the Curve 8900, Bold 9700 and Tour. While I think more developers should support the older devices, I think MapQuest is missing out by not getting the early adopters involved.
- Maps – MapQuest’s detailed and friendly map style is a familiar face in the mobile world.
- Aerial Maps – Get an eagle-eye view to orient yourself; easily available from any map.
- Interactive Maps for Mobile Screens – MapQuest 4 Mobile uses smaller map images for mobile screens. This allows you to pan and zoom without waiting for long downloads.
- Directions – MapQuest 4 Mobile generates the same accurate directions you’ve come to trust from MapQuest.com.
- Search – Search for a business, either by name, or just a category. Map it, get directions or call the business with a click.
- Traffic – Color-coded traffic flows alert you to conditions in your locale, while incident icons appear on the map to help you avoid the latest road construction or accidents along the way.
- Find Me – MapQuest 4 Mobile uses your phone’s GPS chip to locate you, keep track of your progress along a route, or simply find your location when you are lost (if your handset is GPS enabled).
- My Places – This new feature will allow registered My Places users on MapQuest.com to view their saved maps and routes on MapQuest 4 Mobile.
