Mapquest is the AOL of mapping services, a brand that once defined a technological capability, but now serves only to date anyone who uses or mentions it. Go for Google Maps instead, not because it's the newer choice, but the better one, with more options for fine-tuning your chosen route, plus, for the free mobile apps (Android & iOS), real-time reports on accidents and road closures, as submitted by users of the Google-acquired service, Waze.
