MapQuest released a FREE iPhone app that includes voice navigation. Not only does the app work extremely well, but it also includes features such as auto reroute and the ability to map multiple addresses.
MapQuest® 4 Mobile brings over a decade of digital mapping experience to your iPhone® with unique features to help you get where you’re going. Try Voice-Guidance, our latest addition to Driving Directions, for a more hands-free experience!

Here are some of the great features:
Voice guidance tells you when to turn and informs you of upcoming turns.
Map Multiple Addresses
Not only can you map multiple addresses, you can easily rearrange the addresses to optimize your route. The picture below shows me rearranging the destinations by dragging the 3rd address to the 2nd position.
I previously wrote how to map multiple addresses on your iPhone with Google Maps. Mapping multiple addresses with MapQuest is much easier.
The app will ask you if you want the to be rerouted if you go of course.
Access Saved Maps From MapQuest.com
Maps created and saved on your desktop at MapQuest.com can be accessed on your iPhone. All of you saved maps are located under “My Maps” on the iPhone app.
You can search for local business and have them mapped.
Search for addresses and businesses separately
This is a nice feature that lets the application knows you are searching for an address versus searching for a business name.
Pick Your Icon
Pick what icon to use to represent you on the map. This might not be a useful feature but it is fun.
MapQuest raised the bar when creating this free app. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. It requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later. The app is free and available in the app store.
