I briefly tested Mapquest but think it's competitor Waze is better. Differences are clear. It like comparing an Encyclopedia to Wikipedia. One is closed and old business model, the other gets it's content from motivated volunteers, it's fun and great technology.
Don't get me wrong, Waze has only been out for about 6 months in US, 2 years of success in Israel. Currently, Waze maps need to catch up to Mapquest maps, because the Waze maps are updated by users like you and me. But it's the other features that get you going, like crowds letting you know where the traffic jams, speed traps, construction zones are 'real time'!
Also,it's fun to just see another wazer moving down your street as you pass each other, and yes you can be anonymous if you want to be. Check them both out but I think you'll like Waze better now and love Waze a year from now.
I am very impressed with this software, the map is more updated than google maps, and it uses very little data. I tested it for half hour driving, and it only uses less than 1MB for both send/receive.
