Denver, CO, February 24, 2009 –- MapQuest announced the addition of My Places to MapQuest 4 Mobile, MapQuest's free, downloadable application. My Places lets registered MapQuest users save maps and routes to their profile from the MapQuest site and access them via MapQuest.com, (http://www.mapquest.com), or their mobile phone.
