Default MapQuest Navigator / FindMe

Please Login to Remove!

http://navigator.mapquest.com/mqota/

This looks pretty cool. It shows your icon on the map as you travel so I like it better than TeleNav however it does not have town/township/boro boundaries... I also believe it loads the map for directions in one download instead of on the fly so I hope it can be used in non cell reception areas.

It come with a free 90 day trial and I am not sure how it will be billed or how much it will be after that... Anyone know?

Also Mapquest Findme for the 7100i looks to have version 2.0 out, but when I download it OTA it shows 1.0.2. Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance...

I've used MapQuest Navigator and liked it except it would stop navigating for no reason. It does load the whole route at the beginning which will keep it navigating if you lose reception. I also had a problem with BB Maps doing the same thing. I just updated my 7100i to the latest software and BB Maps works the way it's supposed to. I can going to install MapQuest Navigator again today and see if the problem is solved. I understand that MapQuest will be $9.99 per month after the free trial like TeleNav is.
