MapQuest Selects TomTom Maps to Power Its Mobile Application


Trying to get somewhere this summer? Download the updated MapQuest smartphone apps, where our free iPhone and Android offerings are now powered with TomTom maps. As the world's leading supplier of in-car location and navigation products and services, TomTom provides coverage for more than 7.5 million miles of roads across North America. That's like going to the moon and back about 16 times. That's like traveling the length of the Great Wall of China over 1,300 times. That's like running well over a quarter of a million marathons. Basically, it's a lot of mapped miles any way you look at it.

With MapQuest and TomTom maps, you could drive virtually anywhere there's a road in the United States with our app as your travel companion. (No need to panic if you forget to print off directions before leaving your house.) Whether you're driving across the county or across the continent this summer, there's never been a better time to ask for directions...just ask us.

Patch Partners with James Paterson's READKIDDOREAD

Patch has partnered with a website founded by No. 1 best-selling author James Patterson, READKIDDOREAD.com, to encourage children to read. The first program in the partnership, "Patch and James Patterson's/ReadKiddoRead's Summer Reading List," launches this week on all 850+ Patch sites. A video message from Patterson will be featured on the sites that introduces Patch readers to the program and its four age-specific reading lists (ages 2-7, ages 6-9, ages 8-12 and tweens and teens) chosen by Patterson as great summer reads. Kids and parents can share their own recommendations, their responses to the books and their progress with the list on their hometown Patch site.

Patterson has been the number-one selling author in the U.S. for the past three years, with more than 16 million books sold in North America in 2011. He's the first author to have No. 1 new titles simultaneously on The New York Times adult and children's best-seller lists. A champion of reading, Patterson launched READKIDDOREAD.com to help parents and educators connect their children with books that will turn them into lifelong readers. The site, which debuted in 2008, won the National Book Foundation's Innovations in Reading Prize.

In a press release yesterday, Warren Webster, Co-Founder of Patch, said "James Patterson's passion for inspiring children to read made this partnership a perfect fit for Patch, given our commitment to supporting our communities - and by extension, the kids and families in those communities." Patterson said he's "excited to be getting a conversation going this summer with such a lively and active network of families across the country" through Patch.

MapQuest Lands in Times Square


A 20-foot bright green MapQuest-branded balloon, 3-D map pins and a spin-to-win wheel were hard to miss yesterday in Times Square, where more than half-a-million people pass by every day. In addition, a free wifi "hotspot" made it easy for passersby to download MapQuest's apps and start exploring. MapQuest's local offerings stayed in the "lime" light as day turned to dusk and the Taste of Times Square Festival got under way. Nearly an additional 100,000 folks stopped by the nation's top tourism attraction and were delighted to find such a great way for discovering New York.

Next stop for the MapQuest Summer Activation Tour: The company's hometown Denver, where the balloon, map pad, spin-to-win wheel and now-famous fedora giveaways will be seen by 15,000 music aficionados at the funk festival, Westword Music Showcase on June 23.
