    Same problem on my unlocked 680.

    Direction AND maps not working on my Sprint 650. Go to a Mapquest page that gives the choice to

    1Find Places
    2Directions
    3Maps
    Download MapQuest Mobile
    1. MapQues Main
    9.AOL Mobile Phone

    Think it could be the MapQuest that is causing the problem? Sensing you are a mobile/AOL so taking you to this screen?

    The URL on this screen is mobile.aolsearch.com....

    If I try to download MapQuest Mobile I go to manage/sprintpcs.com.... and get an error message that the item is unavailable

    That makes it sound more like a carrier proxy problem.

    I keep getting "Data Timed Out" whenever I try to access Mapquest from DA or my bookmarks. All my other links are working fine...

    I sometimes get "Page cannot be downloaded at this time. Try again later." The rest of the time I end up on the Mapquest screen.

    In any case, Directions is still not working. [I have TomTom on my device and can use it as an alternative to Directions for addresses that I know or copy from DA to contacts. However, it is at best a workaround.]

    Mapquest has radically changed the way their directions pages are accessed and IMHO they completely ruined them for the interactive user, not to mention breaking DA. And the methods they now use make it difficult to automate (may not be possible).

    I'm probably going to ditch trying to use Mapquest at all and switch to Google.

    Thanks for the explanation! DA is indispensible...

    I believed that to be the problem all along, similar to the other recent problem.

    I think that switching to Google is a generally good idea. Google has an API intended to be inter-operable and I would not expect it to change arbitrarily.

    The value of the Internet will increase exponentially as we improve interoperability between applications. Indeed, we would like to achieve interoperability between applications that do not even know about each other. Arbitrary changes to application interfaces that do not support backward compatibility are the enemy of this strategy.

    This is something I wish Palm would learn, too.

    Kudos to folks like Rick who have to put up with this nonsense.

    I just noticed another problem today with Directory Assistant. Reverse Query doesn't seem to work, and I get the error message "Unexpected problem with the results response!"

    Anyone else?

    The serivces used by DA frequently change their interfaces. The consequence is that DA freqeuntly has to update to fix this. What version are you using?

    I was previously using version 3.28. I'm now using 3.26.

    No such problem with 3.28...at least on my 680.

    Okay, this is weird. I reinstalled version 3.28, and Reverse Query works again for me. Never mind my previous post!

    By the way, the reason I had installed the older 3.26 version a few weeks ago was to test if Directions would work with the older version.
