App Reviews

  • Wrong name and can not get it fixed

    By chief turtle 5
    I live in a small town. There is one Street with the right direction on and our Street with the wrong direction on it. When you travel north on a road, and it is call North Street ( any name will do.) And when you get to the next town , you will be on the south side of town but our Street is call north , than when you continue to drive north you come to the north side of town but it is call south. I have reported this problem but I was told it can take six months to fix the problem. I am so glad that my mail and packages still gets delivered to my house , because I still use South on my address. But I have had some business, say that I gave them the wrong address. I have to say where is the sun , what time is it, so which way is north, also do you have a compass on your phone. But do you know that people think map quest can not be wrong. So it takes time to get the business to think about it. But we have had to get things delivered a couple of days later because of this. And if people try to find our house at night, I have to give them land marks to look for. Then they can see that this places are also in the wrong place on map quest. This has been these way for years now.
  • Too late for turns

    By Lost Work Traveler
    I’m an avid Mapquest user because I’m always having to go to different meeting sites for work and rely on this app because I’m always in an unfamiliar area. I trust Mapquest because it has kept me on the right track and on time. However, this last time I had to change my route because of construction and the Mapquest map was not keeping up with the voice so therefore I couldn’t ahead of time be in the lane I needed to be in to be able to make my next turn. Usually I can glance at the map to prepare to get over because of heavy rush hour traffic and can’t safely make those last minute lane switches to turn on time. On top of that the voice tells me to turn when I’m almost past the street I’m supposed to be turning on. This turned a 50 minute drive into an hour and a half drive and almost made me late for a very important meeting. Fortunately I gave myself extra time hoping to get there earlier. I’m a Verizon iPhone 6s Plus user. Not sure what’s going on with Mapquest. Hopefully you all get it back on track. This most recent update is not working properly.

    I’ve been using MapQuest since before apps existed. When they created their app, I didn’t hesitate and it has never, ever let me down. If I stop somewhere unexpectedly, it recalculates quickly so that I can get back on track in moments. That I can turn it on for long trips and play it through my car speakers without shutting my music off helps too. It simply pauses my music and says what it needs to say. I have absolutely never had a problem with MapQuest service. I recommend it to others and I even use it to help people who are from out of town to figure out how to get where they need to go! Being able to adjust some of the settings is amazing as well! I get to avoid most toll roads, and if I choose to avoid highways completely it can locate which route will work best for me that way as well. This app, and the paper copies before it, have taken me all over the country. I won’t even consider using another service!
  • Best for me .

    By M3HUL
    I’m a letter carrier, in December we have to deliver so many parcels and I was very new at this job so don’t know much about 100’s of street and my truck was full of parcels to deliver, so I gave a shot to use Mapquest because it tell me which side houses are are on street, then I figured the BEST part of this app which is it let me put 25 addresses at the same time which made my life so easy and I can see which one comes first and then I start arranging them in order in app and in my truck, one more thing I wish this app would do is let me put around 100 address at the same time and after I put all the address it should arrange all the address accordingly street wise like which street is close by will come first and which one is far it will go last and that will save my more time , because right now that part I have to do manually. I hope they will do this in feature, over all its best for me. I love it, it my work buddy. Thanks guys. Keep it up.
  • Great maps app!!

    By Mf1129
    Much better than using google maps! Used to use mapquest back in the day before google came out and I’m sooo happy this site developed an app to use!! Recently moved to Texas from CA and have been using this for traveling around the cities! Functions much better and it’s much more reliable when I’ve got no time to deal with google glitching out on me and especially the times it tells me I’m located in a city that’s 400 miles talk about a big glitch! Have mentioned this to my husband and he has enjoyed using this. He agrees it’s much more reliable! I wish there was a way to have your phone default to Mapquest for directions rather than google maps for the iPhone. Thanks mapquest for making our lives much easier!! And also love how it’s updated with traffic alerts and businesses closed too. Google would take you to the wrong location at times...pretty frustrating!!
  • Great Navigation app

    By Mp87
    I love this app! Easy to use and many features it offers like the layouts and re-route, and gives you few options to pick from the beginning And Many more:) I pick this over waze or google map unless I get in trouble Just one thing to mention and for first time it gave me a little trouble was: the final destination was close to highway (28 North in VA) and in the highway stopped by saying I’m arrived and location is on the right! instead of take me from different road and take me to the address where I could park! Sorry it’s hard to explain but I think you got what happened. So if there is any way to fix it to take the user closer to the address would be great so I don’t have to stop in the highway where I could see the building but not a great place to leave my car lol But thanks a lot for making this great app available for us:)
  • Near Perfection

    By Skye2blu
    I am now completely fearless driving in totally unknown places with this app. I do glance at it, as well as listen, so I hear the immediate directions and can also see the (right/left) upcoming turn so as to be in the correct lane. I find it amazingly accurate. Twice now it’s re-routed me so I can avoid traffic jams. That’s seriously golden. It works in rural area as well... in the middle of nowhere it found a cut-through dirt road that got me over to another state highway without having to drive miles around... it just cut through and I knew to trust it although it looked wrong. Shortly I was there. Had I driven around it would have taken much longer. I cannot think of any real improvement unless it can drive my car 🚗!
  • Poor Customer Relations

    By Paralegal-Al
    I am very disappointed in Regency Car wash!! A section on my back bumper was damaged by the wash. When I brought it to the manager on site attention she referred me to a general manager. When I spoke with this GM “Jose Nestali” he was very rude with no customer service skills. He demanded that I send pictures of the damage, which I did. He said he would call me back within an hour which he never did. I call him instead. He said that he had spoken to his boss and that they would not do anything about the damage. I asked if I could speak to his boss. He told me that he would text me his phone number, which he never did. After several days I called him again and again he said that he would text his boss number to me and again he did not, until I sent him a text indicating that I had consulted with an attorney. The people that run this car wash only cares about making money. They do not Care about their customers!! I rate Regency Car Wash a big fat zero.
  • Mayhem

    By BDChange
    1 star is overly generous. The party booked 3 months in advance and paid in full was not delivered. Email confirmations received. All details changed day of due to overbooking on day of event. 2 hour party time changed by 2 hours and was limited to 1 hour when too late to change guest invitations. No place to put cake and food as the “party room” and food services booked and paid was also reduced to 2 tables for almost 20 people. We were not alone. Several other families showed up only to find their details were changed without notice too. Talking with the owner was not helpful in correcting the situation and a refund was not given. Not even a discount. Not even an apology. Just sharing though even advance booking and confirmations were given, they were not honored. Booking is the customer agreeing to the party deliverables but not, apparently, the establishment delivering as promised...”contracted”. Fail on child birthday party. :-(
  • Glitches and No sign in

    By Kristennnn.
    (iPhone user) I love this app, but I have noticed a few issues. There will be times where I am using the map and it will crash for no reason, on to keep crashing each time I open the app or whenever I am looking at the route selected. Also, when this happens so often, I am pretty much forced to delete the app and reinstall it. This leads to all of my information and settings being cleared away. There is not a sign in option for an account in order to save my information and settings either. I vaguely remember being able to sign in a long time ago, but not sure why I can’t now. If these issues were fixed I’d love the app even more, but until then I just remain frustrated.
