MapQuest 4 Beta for BlackBerry

MapQuest has announced the Beta release of their BlackBerry application. MapQuest 4 Mobile Beta is available for Sprint on the BlackBerry 8830 and AT&T on the BlackBerry 8800, 8820, and 8310. However, I was able to download and install this application using my Verizon 8830, the only things that did not work properly are the features that use the GPS, thanks Verizon! I cannot say what would happen if you downloaded it on a different device, but the developers say that many additional devices will be supported in the coming days.

From the Press Release;

MapQuest 4 Mobile offers users an easy-to-use interface and the same accurate directions and maps they rely on from the site.  Local search is also accessible, enabling users to search for businesses by proper name or category.  Additionally, MapQuest 4 Mobile provides hybrid imagery, traffic and incident information as well as a GPS “find me” feature which locates a user and tracks the progress to their destination. MapQuest 4 Mobile also utilizes smaller map tiles allowing for faster downloads and quicker screen refresh.

MapQuest 4 Mobile is the latest addition to MapQuest’s suite of mobile products which include voice-guided navigation from MapQuest Navigator, WAP site at, and Send To Cell, Garmin and OnStar functionality.  The newest mobile product continues MapQuest’s on-going mission of providing mobile services that help consumers get to where they need to go, anytime, anywhere.

So if you happen to be one of the lucky ones supported by this new Beta app, give it a download and let us know how you like it.

  1. Link is busted

  2. Just tried it and it worked for me…

    What device/carrier are you using?

  3. Unit: 8310 Curve
    Carrier: Rogers Wireless Canada.
    Rating: 8 out of 10

    MapQuest is a lot faster at pin pointing my GPS location than “Poynt” and blackberry maps, and its handy that MQ4M also shows data consumed while using the program. But its a bit slow in the interface, overall I give it an 8, but once its out of bata and supports Canadian Gas prices searching I think that will go up.


  4. Needs some work still… WL and GMaps still faster

  5. Try it without the ‘www.’ I couldn’t get to the site using www and was able to hit it after I took that out.

  6. Tested it out on my 8830 with gps puck. This is a nice app if you like to walk with gps. It has no voice nav so its not good for driving. Pretty UI but, lack functionality. I get the same info with my google maps, and voice nav from amazegps. Deleted.

  7. Here is the law President Regan signed into law that all GPS will be free for all to use. How/ why is verizon making people pay for a service when everyone in the USA pays for it with federal taxes? How is it that verizons gps works through there system when we have over 24 sattilites that do the job already?
    Hope verizon can answer these questions honestly. Enjoy the reading

  8. I saved my maps in mapquest page from my laptop, after that I login to mapquest from my blackberry. I was very surprised to see that I could not access my saved maps on my blackberry. This is a bug in the product…
