To use the free service all you have to do is dial DIR-ECT-IONS (that’s 347-328-4667) on your cell phone and answer a few questions about where you are and where you want to go. Users can give a specific destination address or intersection or just ask for the closest location of any chain store. Within seconds, Dial Directions sends you a text message with directions.
Dial Directions says they’ve “innovated several techniques to shorten turn-by-turn directions into text messages, yet maintain a level of detail and simplicity so the directions are easy to read and understand.”
Overall the service is very intriguing. It will be interesting to see what cities they cover next and what future services they will offer.
