Who needs a pricey GPS device when you can get directions and turn-by-turn voice navigation on your iPhone? This is where the free MapQuest 4 Mobile app for the iPhone or iPod Touch comes in.
While I’ve used the free Google Maps app that comes pre-installed on the iPhone, I haven’t been able to use it when I need it – when I’m driving. So I love that the free MapQuest 4 Mobile app speaks to me to give me directions and even re-routes automatically if I get turned around, which is a great time saver too.
One cool money-saving feature is that you can set the app to automatically avoid toll roads. If a location is a short distance away you can also set the app to alert you to walking directions. The app can help you find local gas stations too (don’t forget that the free Cheap Gas! app can help you find the cheapest gas).
