The free MapQuest 4 Mobile app for iPhone just added turn-by-turn with street name Voice-Guidance , its latest addition to Driving Directions, for a more hands-free experience!
In addition, Mapquest provides up to 16 million Point of Interests, including local businesses.
This is a great alternative to the iPhone maps built-in and of course paid apps such TomTom, Navigon, etc..
