MapQuest Launches New Mobile Services
MpaQuest has announced two new products in the market, the MapQuest Navigator and Web based mobile services. MapQuest Navigator, in partnership with Telmap, will enable consumers to access Global Positioning Service (GPS), turn-by-turn, voice-guided directions on mobile phones.

The system includes a database of millions of restaurants, hotels, theaters and other points of interest which consumers can navigate to, direct dial to make reservations or send any location to a friend via text message.

MapQuest also announced that it is making it easier for consumers with Web-enabled mobile phones to access MapQuest.com. The free Web service is specifically designed and formatted for mobile phones and provides a convenient way for anyone with a Web-enabled phone to access interactive maps, get driving directions and find places. Consumers can access this service on their mobile phones by going to http://wap.mapquest.com.

MapQuest expects the MapQuest Navigator service will be available through major U.S. wireless carriers later in 2006.
