Mobile SDKs

What are Mobile SDKs?

A fully-native, 64-bit mapping experience for mobile devices.

Get Started

What it can do for you


Extend your application’s experience to any Android or iOS device, anywhere.

Touch It, Bring It

Users can find closest stores or delivery locations, while rotating, and zooming on the go.

Modern Experience

Build native Android and iOS apps and choose from different map styles to match your app or brand.

Stronger, Faster

The mobile mapping SDK is stronger, faster, and will be replacing our Flash SDK, and JavaScript SDK. Please see this blog post for dates on when these SDKs will be retiring.

Key Features:

Native Maps

Our native mobile maps are available in basic, night, satellite and our unique MapQuest style.


Our gorgeous maps are rotatable and zoomable.

Vector-based Traffic

Format traffic lines and colors to match your brand or mood.

How it Looks

iOS Objective C SDK

- (void)viewDidAppear:(BOOL)animated
   [super viewDidAppear:animated];
   self.mapView.mapType = MQMapTypeSatellite;

iOS Swift SDK

override func viewDidLoad() {
   mapView?.mapType = .Satellite
