MapQuest Driving Directions Find Voice

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:07 pm

MapQuest Navigator provides audible turn-by-turn voice directions with GPS from the phone handset by downloading a Java application to the phone and typing in the destination.

It also downloads enough information about the route, so if a driver makes a wrong turn, the application has enough information to make the necessary corrections in the route without going back to the server for more information.

MapQuest Navigator will set users back about $9.99 per month and currently offered by Sprint.
