App works fairly well 2/5
I would still prefer in dash navigation, but this work fairly well. Sometimes. Well actually maybe only works 30% of time. Keep the app up to date please.
Rarely connects 1/5
By Jax HHH
It would connect after a few times with my iPhone 6. It has only connected once with my iPhone 8.
Connectivity issues 1/5
I truly hate that toyota made the decision to spend money on this worthless app. The map claims to work better with usb connection but everytime i try to connect if fails. I would have never purchase the car knowing i would have had to deal with this navigation system
Scout gps 2/5
Hard to use. To change from my husbands phone to mine I have to forget this device and then put my phone back in. Scout doesn’t give a nice written list of the proposed route and it only shows the immediate area in which I’m traveling on the screen. I like an overview because it frequently does stupid directions such as sending me through a residential area when the road I need is the next exit. I can’t say I’m impressed.
Lacking in features. Disappointing. 1/5
I was hoping I could use the Scout to replace using Waze since it connects to my truck, but Scout lacks features of other GPS' and is not nearly as accurate. I use the real-time traffic and routing feature in Waze on a daily basis.
The Scout database(s) seem to be outdated for destinations and require more specific search parameters.
Arrows for directions are too generic to be helpful. It does not show actual road path, just a generic left/right/straight arrows.
Road names may not be available at times and Exit numbers off highways are not available.
I am very dissatisfied with the operation of this GPS system it never works when I need it I’m going to go back to the Toyota dealer to see what I can do it very to satisfied
Scout bad reviews 1/5
Why all the bad scout Gps comments for Toyoto Camry XLE? Too many 1 star ratings!!
By Mama Sews
The nav system on my 2008 Acura was so far ahead of this Scout system. I could run the Acura nav and run both Waze and any other nav system on my phone concurrently if I wanted. I was very upset and have resigned myself to getting a dashmount and using my phone gps apps rather than the Scout as the Scout map shuts off the second I go to Waze or google maps
Do not find the app user friendly
Inaccurate gps 2/5
By gps or not
The gps is always off by 50-100 ft. Is there anyway to adjust the accuracy? Since there is no verbal “next left” etc, or beep the road is passed a lot. Not all the roads have signs it is sometimes difficult to make a quick decision while in traffic. More gps accuracy would help sole this. The iphone has no adjustment for accuracy either.
Rarely Works - shouldn’t exist, Google Maps and Apple do better 1/5
By Dave Shrein
Rarely works, won’t update directions as I drive, sometimes won’t actually connect to my car. Constantly asks for permission to allow the app in my car to use my phone... have to say yes every time. Not optimized for large screens.
Just s rotten app all around.
It’s soo bad 1/5
It’s never work; away it’s giving me some error message. We the costumers deserves better after paying so much for our vehicles.
Didn’t work at first 1/5
Finally got it to work one time
Stupid default for Toyota 1/5
By if it aint broke
This is a huge disappointment for an overall good car. Can’t believe there isn’t a better option like Waze.
Scout is awful 1/5
This is by far the worst app ever!!!
Please Toyota, fix this problem.
I regret buying a Toyota now 1/5
This app only works about 20% of the time. It is so frustrating and difficult to use that I now really regret buying a Toyota Corolla. I actually really needed a GPS system for my car and now I’m considering either replacing my stereo or trading in my Corolla for something that won’t stick me with this crappy gps.
Works once every fifteen times 1/5
By San Fran 49er fan #1
Very irritating , if you delete the APP then reinstall it works maybe 25% of the time , it’s garbage !!!!
Worked at the dealership and Toyota service & sales department can’t figure out how to link scout. I bought my car under the impression it came with real GPS not an app that doesn’t work and drains all your Verizon data!! Now I have a $40,000 2018 car with out GPS!!
Horrible app 1/5
Unable to connect. Toyota should be ashamed to partner with this substandard feature.
I have to log in every time I open the app. I never see a map on my screen, just instructions on where to turn. UI looks cheep and outdated. Frequently gives me wrong directions; ie telling me to take a u-turn when none is needed. Often the GPS is wrong about my location or which side of the road I’m on. These are problems GPS apps had 10 years ago. I’m embarrassed for people to see this in 2017 truck. I wish I had Apple CarPlay, instead.
Not great. 2/5
I wish it had an simple map view. Does not connect automatically
Please try again later. 1/5
I can’t even test out the Nav because I can’t connect.
I don’t get how Toyota can make really good trucks, but can’t have a decent up to date navigation system.
It’s horrible 1/5
It only works 25% of the time. Cuts out if you get a phone call. The keyboard for manually typing in coordinates is delayed and takes forever. It’s probably one of the worst GPS systems I have used. Because of how often it crashes I always have google maps running on my phone at same time. They need some type of update for more reliability.
By Laaaazzzy D
Cannot connect to my 2017 car. Not even worth one star!!!
An embarrassment 1/5
Certainly isn't accurate or efficient when choosing routes. Also, there is no reason to access my phone's GPS when I'm not using the app. My battery is being drained for no reason. Change it to use GPS only when using the app and you might get another star.
So the app now only uses GPS when it's open but now it won't stay connected. The display in vehicle won't connect. If I'd known the features weren't going to work I would have asked for a lower vehicle price for false advertisement.
Just got stuck from the beginning... 1/5
By Worst RPG Game ever
This is definitely not working from the get go!
Hate it! 1/5
Useless! I have to log in all the time, can’t use while moving, even as passenger. Never bother to try to use it anymore. Wish we got a different car with Apple CarPlay instead of Toyota.
Why even try 1/5
This app is useless at best. Since you need your mobile phone to use this app, might as well use your Goggle Map or iOS Maps app?
You get what you (don’t) pay for 1/5
The app is “free” and now i understand why. It’s pretty ridiculous how much time is wasted trying to connect this app to the car. We leased a 2017 Lexus NX 200t and was advised we don’t need to purchase the upgrade factory installed Navi on the vehicle. Well guess this is the price we pay for not “upgrading” - headaches & frustrations coupled with battery & data usage.
Brought it back to the dealership and deleted and redownloaded it. Next thing you know it works....for 3 hours then of course problems again.
TERRIBLE NAVIGATION APP 1/5
Two things that piss me off. (1) the app doesn’t cut your music down to tell you when a turn is coming up. (2) there is no visible route (LIKE EVERY OTHER NAV APP) it’s just directions. What’s the point of connecting to Lexus then?!
Terrible app 1/5
I better use google maps on my phone instead of this app. It doesn't work as I expected. Would love it if it can show user interface such as integrated navigation app.
Terrible app 1/5
We bought a 2016 Toyota Highlander with hopes of having a great GPS. Scout GPS is by far the worst GPS app we have ever experienced. Knowing what I know now about this I would have seriously considered purchasing another vehicle!!!
I’d give it a 0 1/5
By Hate this GPS
This GPS works maybe 10% of the time . If you want GPS buy it installed and not a Toyota with the Scout Ap . Won’t connect or stops working and by the time you realize you’ve driven past your turn . Horrible !
Never stays connected! 1/5
This is a terrible app. Always have to turn off my phone and turn it back on to make the connection with my car GPS. Terrible app never works. POS...
0 stars 1/5
It would be nice if it would be able to use Google maps or Waze also. Or just mirror the phone screen would be better yet
Crap app 1/5
I can’t believe Toyota has selected this app to support their navigation systems. If I’d known this before purchasing my car, I would have thought twice. I’ve been able to use it once. Every other attempt, I get the message, Could not complete request. Please try again later. Even the OK button for this message is unresponsive. On top of this, the Bluetooth in my car is unresponsive, as well. Supposedly hooking my phone to the UBS port helps some. Regardless, Toyota needs to fix this ASAP. I’m really disappointed.
Why Toyota Why ??? 1/5
By 2018 Tumdra
Would rate less that one state if possible. 2018 Tundra
Why can I not get just a real time map? I don't always have a specific destination sometimes I just want to know where I am and what road is coming up next. Is this to much to ask for. The Entune in my 2016 Tacoma was way better.
Do not buy a Toyota with Scout GPS, I never will again.
Unknown User 1/5
By Jamie Perry
Very poor reliability
Love map and traffic updates 4/5
With the addition of maps and live traffic it’s a much better app.
With a USB cable tether your dash NAV isn’t just turn by turn.
The ease of use now is very much appreciated.
This app crashes constantly while using it. Always seems to be in the craziest part of your trip. Sticking with apple maps. I wish Toyota would just integrate CarPlay.
Terrible decision by Toyota 1/5
This ap is junk and unreliable. I am a sales rep and rely on my gps and am so dissapointed in this system. Please use apple play like any other smart manufacture.
It is difficult to use and only connects occasionally
Rarely works 1/5
I recently purchased a 2018 Rav4 and I was not looking for anything fancy, just turn by turn directions. This app simply doesn’t work.
It’s all true! 1/5
It’s all been said! 0 stars! Just want to see the map while I drive. Text directions is just not safe! Talk about distracted driving! Avoid using Scout GPS!
Doesn't work 1/5
This app has so many issues staying connected it's frustrating...If you get it to work, it will work for a while, but if you turn off the car, and go out again in a few hours, it won't work. Most annoying ever, can't believe Toyota approved this nonsense
Everyone said it all 1/5
All the negative reviews are basically my complaint!
I have this in my 2017 Tundra. Rarely works and I have to use a separate GPS what a waste of time. Toyota need to get it sorted out.
Attention is necessary for this Scout navigation. 1/5
It is dangerous to obey only the voice instruction of this navigation.
Both instruction content to be displayed and voice instruction content are both too late or there are many mistake , so it is necessary to be careful.
I think that this navigation should not be trusted.
Doesn’t work 1/5
When I initially downloaded this app, with the lady who worked at Toyota and was going over features with me, it worked. Tried using it afterwards and it wouldn’t work, I keep getting the error that the request can’t be completed at this time. I realized it only worked again after I deleted and re-downloaded the app. I did the updates and sent feedback and it still doesn’t work. I bought a 2017 Toyota RAV4 XLE, I love what I got but it makes me wonder if I should’ve just gotten one with a navigation system. I was under the impression since it would work fine with the app I would be good to go since I’ve always used my phone for navigation through Waze or google maps. What a disappointment, it would’ve been nice to be able to use it on the screen, looks like I’ll have to find my old handy phone holder to navigate.
Scout GPS IS TERRIBLE 1/5
By Bud & Nan
We have the Scout GPS system in our new 2017 Camry XLE Hybrid. We were not aware that it is not the same navigation system that we have in all the other Toyota’s we have bought. We bought this car for gas mileage and to travel because we live out in the country in Texas. Every time we take a trip we are furious with this system. What about the people that don’t have an iPhone? We have been loyal Toyota owners for years and now I wish we bought another brand. We have a Toyota Tundra also. It is not convenient at all. We didn’t question navigation when we bought the Camry because we were not aware of the change.
Lame, lame and lame 1/5
By SuperStar Records
Too many clicks behind superior services like Waze Google and Apple Maps. Search function freezes up. Maps are too high level. Fail.
