Driving Instructions Straight To Your Mobile

Driving instructions on your mobile phone as you drive?

AOL's MapQuest, one of the leading mapping services on the Web, is just about to launch MapQuest Navigator, a new software whose aim is to provide detailed and visually supported driving directions to mobile devices in the US.

MapQuest Navigator, in partnership with Telmap, will soon enable consumers to access a Global Positioning Service (GPS) which in turn will allow consumers to receive turn-by-turn, voice-guided real-time directions on their mobile phones.

The free Web service provides a convenient way for anyone with a Web-enabled phone to access interactive maps, get driving directions and find places while making and receiving phone calls.

Based on the next generation technology 'MOND' Mobile Optimized Navigation Data, from Telmap, MapQuest Navigator displays dynamic, full-color maps and provides accurate turn-by-turn navigation instructions by voice, graphics and text. 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 Navigator currently supports BREW, Java, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian.

Check out this demonstration video about the new MapQuest Navigator showing some of the features of this new mobile driving instructions service.
