MapQuest refreshed “New Look, One-box search” and more

MapQuest launched a redesigned MapQuest.com, aimed to be more helpful, intuitive and engaging where the entire experience is within view and contextually relevant throughout. There’s a new look & feel, a new back end, a single search box and a new “brand.” Mapquest is the number two mapping site after Google Maps. And, now with a new boss at AOL, fewer ads and a new focus on consumer experience. Here’s a quick list of new features:

  • One-box search for finding directions, maps and businesses
  • Enhanced My Maps with simplified login process using existing services (AOL, OpenID, Yahoo, Google, Facebook and Twitter)
  • ability to easily save and customize information, including My Maps trip itineraries, and share it with friends via social networks, including: Facebook and Twitter
  • Ways to plan and personalize travel with notes, anecdotes, landmarks and short cuts
  • Integration of Patch’s directory information into MapQuest’s search results (e.g. restaurants, stores, government offices, local services, parks and schools)
