Using your mobile phone while driving without the hands-free kit is suicidal. In the UK, it’s against law to use mobiles while driving. Many states in the US are implementing similar laws.
However, we all know that there are certain situations when we need to use our mobiles while driving especially to get directions. What do we do then? The solution lies in using an app that will provide you with voice directions. MapQuest is one such app.
The MapQuest app will not only be able to locate your destination but also guide you there with voice-guided instructions. This app features turn-by-turn GPS navigation system.The MapQuest app for iOS, BlackBerry and Android is truly free as there are no subscriptions, upgrade required, or trail period.
The app also offers Live Traffic Flow and Incidents info that is updated every five minutes so you can avoid congested areas or incidents and remain on time. There is also an option to speak out your destination rather than type it in. And if you make a wrong turn, the app will show the easiest alternate route to bring you back on track.
In case you need walking directions, MapQuest will give you the optimal route. There is even a handy button you can press to basically re-centre your position during your trip.
