Amazon Shop buttons are programmatically attached to all reviews, regardless of products' final review scores. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements.
MapQuest Navigator feels more like a business and resource finder that's had navigation tools grafted on. It compares favorably to AT&T Navigator's ability to parse Contacts addresses correctly, but lacks decent integration of traffic data, such as the ability to announce alerts and provide dynamic re-routing. GPS tracking against the map notably lags that of other apps.
The program's key advantage is simplicity: there are few settings to change, and it's easy to enter a destination and then optionally find nearby businesses. It's a shame there's no iPod control included, as that prevents it from being a reasonable alternative to MotionX for inexpensive apps.
