Tip: Smartphone — No GPS? No Problem

No GPS on your phone? No problem. MapQuest and 1-800-FREE411 have a free service that will send you turn-by-turn voice directions or, if you have internet on your phone, you can receive them as web pages.

  • From your mobile, dial DIR-ECT-IONS (347-328-4667)
  • The voice prompts will lead you through the steps to say where you are going and then where you are starting from
  • Indicate, when prompted, whether you want to receive the directions as a text message or as a Web link
  • Hang up
  • Shortly, you'll receive a text message containing either the directions or the Web link directions or, if you have internet on your phone, you can receive them as web pages.
  • The service is free, but be mindful of your text/data plan if you become a regular user.
