    CTIA: New MapQuest 4 Mobile Beta for BlackBerry - Free Download!

    Advertisement



    MapQuest today announced the beta launch of MapQuest 4 Mobile, a free, downloadable application that extends MapQuest.com capabilities to compatible BlackBerry smartphones.

    Download MapQuest 4 Mobile via BlackBerry at: www.mq4m.com

    Initially, the MapQuest 4 Mobile service will be available via Sprint on the BlackBerry 8830 and AT&T on the BlackBerry 8800, 8820, and 8310. Support for many additional handsets will roll out over the coming months. For additional information about MapQuest 4 Mobile please visit http://www.mapquest.com/mq4m.

    MapQuest 4 Mobile offers users an easy-to-use interface and the same accurate directions and maps they rely on from the MapQuest.com site. Local search is also accessible, enabling users to search for businesses by proper name or category. Additionally, MapQuest 4 Mobile provides hybrid imagery, traffic and incident information as well as a GPS "find me" feature which locates a user and tracks the progress to their destination. MapQuest 4 Mobile also utilizes smaller map tiles allowing for faster downloads and quicker screen refresh.

    "Smartphones are growing at a record pace and this an important market segment to address as more users rely on their phones for maps and directions," said Christian Dwyer, Senior Vice President and GM, MapQuest. "MapQuest 4 Mobile is our next-generation service that mirrors the intuitive interface and simplicity that MapQuest is known for."

    MapQuest 4 Mobile is the latest addition to MapQuest's suite of mobile products which include voice-guided navigation from MapQuest Navigator, WAP site at http://www.mapquest.com, and Send To Cell, Garmin and OnStar functionality. The newest mobile product continues MapQuest's on-going mission of providing mobile services that help consumers get to where they need to go, anytime, anywhere.

    Wonder if the GPS portion will work for Verizon when its available for the curve.
    If not I dont see no reason to getting this since I already have Google Maps.

    Verizon gets us again - for now

    My VZW 8830WE with Google Maps can triangulate my position to a 1700m radius which is pretty much useless. My old AT&T 8820 could get within a 3m radius which was great (also using triangulation, GPS disabled). Too bad MapQuest looks like they are only working on GPS-enabled phones. I would love to see if they can be any more accurate with the triangulation approach. This Verizon thing is really p*ssing me off. I'm going to get with an AT&T rep and try to pitch to our IT guys to go back to AT&T. We have had nothing but problems with VZW. Sorry, had to vent. Thanks for the info though Hayden. You and your team do an awesome job with this site.

    Thank you much Hayden! I think Google is more accurate than Mapquest but I'm going to give it a chance... ALMOST every app deserves at least that much...

    I emailed mapquest one time because their book, had my house number listed on the wrong page (it was on the edge as well as about a mile worth of others on the edge house addresses, and in appreciation they sent me the current mapquest disk version and a new map book :P
    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    Tested it out on my 8830 with gps puck. This is a nice app if you like to walk with gps. It has no voice nav so its not good for driving. Pretty UI but, lack functionality. I get the same info with my google maps, and voice nav from amazegps. Deleted.
