AOL is already working on agreements with Sprint Nextel and Verizon Wireless. MapQuest boasts as many as 40 million users a month at its website and hopes to translate that popularity into the mobile user population. Subscription fees are reported to be about US$4 a month.

One selling point of MapQuest Navigator is its combination of text and voice-prompt instructions, making point-to-point driving directions easy to follow with both eyes and ears.
