The MapQuest app has been updated with a new Compare feature that shows you a variety of transportation options for getting to your destination.

We’ve integrated multiple modes of transportation, including Uber and car2go* nationwide and transit** in select cities. In addition, avoid the rubber-necking and route around accidents, plan multi-stop trips, and tap into advanced routing capabilities-- including alternate routes. With a recognizable “Map” icon, robust bookmarking options, and handy sharing features, navigation convenience is just a tap away. Whether you’re running a quick errand or taking a road trip, MapQuest's live maps and traffic updates and GPS and voice navigation, give you the trusted directions and traffic info you need.

What's New In This Version:
Stop the Mobile-Multitasking Madness! Our new Compare tool simplifies your life without having to perform a balancing act between apps. Looking to plan your trip? Look no further. Seriously, just stop looking. Compare gives you multiple options in one place including Uber, car2go* and local transit** to help you determine the best available option.

Car broken down? Order roadside assistance and then book an Uber to get yourself home - directly through our app. Traffic a bit crazy? Check your local transit or use it as an excuse to walk off some of those pesky calories. Compare was made for you if you:

• Believe time is money. That’s why we’ve made it easy to sort your results to get the quickest and/or least expensive option.
• Like to stay ahead of storms. View local weather so you can plan the best mode of transportation.
• Need to get those steps in. See walking time to your destination and estimated number of calories you’ll burn to get there.
• Want to book a ride. Integrate with the Uber app and see available services, pricing and estimated time of arrival.
• Need to reserve a car. Find and book the nearest available car2go.

PLUS...YOU spoke, WE listened. In addition to fixing multiple pesky bugs and crashes, we have updated our route ribbon color based on feedback to make it more readable. Have additional thoughts? We’ve made it easier than ever to share feedback in the app. Because when you speak, we actually listen.

*car2go requires a pre-approved membership
**Only available in select cities with new cities coming soon.

You can download MapQuest from the App Store for free.
