It’s something that has been bugging me a bit. Is adding MapQuest to the iPhone merely redundant or instead are we going to see added functionality? Based on what I can see, it looks like a lot of cool functionality is being added.
But all of the cool new features in the world means little if the map providing capability is not up to snuff. Well that and the Google street view is difficult for others to others to even touch. Still, the feature list with MapQuest’s app is impressive.
At the end of the day, it will likely come down to who prefers what over the other. I like Google Maps, it’s what I am used to. Bundle this with having bad experiences with both Google and MapQuest in the past and clearly, this is a very interpretive issue.
