Description

Scout - the only social navigation app. Share with friends your favorite places to eat, plan Meet Ups, share your ETA and get turn-by-turn GPS voice directions. We all enjoy discovering new places and experiences but some of us don’t like to be misled. Frustrated with Yelp and skeptical about the reviews? Scout is like Yelp, except the reviews/tips are from your friends. If you are one of those who prefers tips/reviews from trusted persons, Scout is the right source for you. From restaurants and bars to coffee shops, share among friends your collective favorite eating places and tips/photos. New! See which of your friends are local foodie experts on the map. New! See what restaurants are the most popular are most popular among a group of your friends. New! Click on different routes to see turn-by-turn direction before you start navigating to your destination. Share ETA – Pick your route and share your ETA easily with one or more contacts in a single tap. Scout suggests your most frequently used contacts to share with while on the road. Get live ETAs – Scout shows when Meet Up attendees are on the move with real-time ETAs on the map. Now you’ll always know when a friend is late and whether “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet.” Say hello with Voice Chat – Send one-touch voice chat or text messages to your Meet Up group. Only those invited will be able to send and receive messages. Always be on time – Receive notifications when traffic is slower than usual on your daily commute home or to work. Get reminders one hour before your Meet Up event is set to begin and as your guests arrive. Connect with others – Create a Meet Up, let your friends or family member knows when you are going to be there. Other navigation features: Navigate easily – Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel with turn-by-turn voice guided GPS directions. Beat traffic – Real time traffic and live speed updates help you find the best and quickest route to avoid gridlock. Do it your way – Save your customized route preferences, favorite map views and schedule personalized commute departure alerts for home and work. Make a pit stop – Discover new places along your route for the cheapest gas, restaurants for a bite to eat or other amenities. Never get lost— Scout, powered by OpenStreetMap (OSM), provides the most up-to-date map information with updates from a community of more than 1.6 million editors.

  • Unusable

    It wants me to enter my mobile phone #. It will only accept a one digit country code. If you have a two digit country code you can’t use this software.

    This gps literally be taking me to dead ends needs a major map update. I had it to avoid the highway and it will still try and put me on the highway. I used to like it.

    Installed so I could link to my new Toyota Tacoma. After trying to use for 20 minutes; I deleted it. I don’t want another “social media app” - I just want a turn by turn GPS.

    I’m a realtor so I’m always in my car. Scout is my go to navigation system. I’d be lost without it...literally!
  • Contacts and favorite places

    This is ok if I want to go home or to work but otherwise useless for me. I'd like to have a way to access my contacts for favorite places, instead of a random list of people and places near where I happen to be at the time. Also would like a way to just touch an icon and access all my contacts. This is trying to replace Telenav GPS and I wouldn't even consider it. Add a contacts icon and I will consider scout. Til then---yawn. Update. Now they want all my personal information. No. Delete.

    Usually the system will rerouted but isn’t working that way any more as soon as you get to near location it stop providing info how to get to the address . Yesterday I spend 45 minutes lost trying to find the place I was going to. Went I give the address again it send me in a complete different route and got lost again
  • On my Toyota

    This is a mandatory app for my vehicle navigation system, it is both overly complicated to use and far less constrained then the nav system on my iPhone. I am just going to quit using the vehicle nav system and use my I phone instead I wish Toyota had not chosen this system on their new Tacoma’s.this is a waste,

    I have tried multiple times to subscribe for the plus version but it always fails, while my account is charged. Please fix.
  • Used to be better

    I have used this app to get me from Kentucky to California, all over the place, and back. I worked, well enough. I say it used to be better because it was more fun. I used to be able to pick from an icon like a spaceship or the minivan... I miss that actually. Having used it to cross country I only have one note: when someone calls you on the road and asks you where you are, there is no way of knowing what town you are in. There should be a bubble or something that tells you: "you are currently in_________." That would have been very handy. I wrote the above review over 3 years ago. Since then I have not used any other app to get me from A to B. Sometimes it will not fine me a route because when I download this I lived in Hawaii, then Tennessee, now Nevada... every now and again it tells me that something a few miles away is 34 hours away and that there isn’t a route to be had, as though it thinks my starting point is still in Tennessee, or Hawaii. There is also a few random places that it will take me the longest way possible. BUT it’s never taken me to the wrong place, just taken a long time to get there.
  • Some locations not searchable

    Needed to go to Delavan Wisconsin yesterday. Searched for it in the app and it continually showed me a New York location even when searching address, name of the location or name of the town. Gave up and went to Google. Might have to delete app.
