MapQuest API not returning final maneuver (destination)

Posted on 2010-01-07
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have developed a C# application that uses the MapQuest API (mapquest20 v.5.3).  I am attempting to use the API in order to get the directions from a start to a destination.  

I am successfully grabbing all of these directions using the Narrative property of the Maneuver class (with help from the examples provided by MapQuest) with one exception.  

I'm unable to get the last step.  For example, "Arriving at 1234 Testing Lane on the Left".
The collection of Maneuvers retrieved using TrekRoutes gets me to the last street but doesn't tell me that final step.  

Am I doing something wrong?  I do have the destination address, so currently I'm just adding the last line but I'm unable to derive if the destination is on the left or right.

    Answering my own question just for future reference.  

    Per MapQuest Support:

    Side of Street Display is not available via the API, only the web service.

    How do you get the MapQuest53.dll for .Net.  I can't find the download anywhere.

    i was using mapquest20.dll when I was writing this Proof of Concept.

    Looks like it's deprecated anyways.

    Ok thanks.  I will have to contact their support to see if I can get it from them directly. I appreciate the help.
