Android is now also seeing free turn-by-turn navigation with the MapQuest app
Android users might be getting all the love thanks to free navigation courtesy of Google Maps Navigation, but for those who prefer something different, it’s worth noting that MapQuest can be a useful alternative to Google’s venerable app.

We’ve already seen the iPhone get free voice guided turn-by-turn direction with its MapQuest app, but now owners holding onto Android 1.6 and up devices can experience the same thing. The app is now available for download in the Android Market, and presents itself with some useful features like voice guided navigation, voice search, a map toolbar, walking/driving directions, and live traffic flow. Additionally, users will like using the app since it employs OpenStreetMap (OSM) data – which means that it can be used internationally. Not only that, but you can simply provide corrections for mistakes directly on the map itself.

So if you want to experience something different, while still being free, then make sure to download and check out the MapQuest app.
