www.MapQuest.ca with driving directions for Toronto and OntarioMaps Info Service
Mapquest.ca utilizes satellite imagery to give users a reliable way to
locate driving or walking directions to their desired destination. Not
only does MapQuest provide directions, it also tells the user how far it
is from the starting point to the ending point as well as how long it
will take them to get there. This free website provides these services
so users can print out their directions without the need to purchase an
expensive GPS unit.
MapQuest is so much more than just maps. With MapQuest, the user can also use the toolbar at the top to locate various destinations such as coffee shops, pizzerias, bars and shopping centers, and many more points of interest (POI) that are normally only found in a GPS unit. The user can either locate these POI’s for the starting point, ending point or along their trip. In addition to the provided POI’s, the MapQuest website will also provide real time traffic updates; ensuring the user will not be stuck in an unexpected traffic jam. This feature works very well for those users who are viewing the website on a smartphone or PDA while on the road.
There are two ways to view the maps on www.mapquest.ca, including 360 views. In this view, the user can view exactly where they are going, because, instead of viewing the destination on the satellite map, they view it on a street level map, complete with views of the streets, businesses and houses.
MapQuest is the perfect way to get to any destination without purchasing a GPS unit. It is a free service to view, print and share maps, as well as view the map with directions on a smartphone or PDA while driving to that destination. This website works exactly the same as an expensive GPS device, without the additional cost.
