Need more work 1/5
I recently updated the app and now it takes longer time to connect/pair with my car. It gives me too much inconvenience especially when i'm in a hurry and i have to find a location.
I'm a visual person but i also like to hear the direction. It will be great to improve the app by including moving arrow in the map, giving a full map view like google map and waze, than only tells you how far it is and when i should turn. Gsp is the main reason why i upgraded my car when i purchased it. I've paid a huge amount of money to get this feature but only be disappointed. It would be great to improve this app and fit for Toyota users. Ive been using this app for a month now and honestly im not liking it. Or maybe a big company like Toyota should invest in a better app (which their clients paid for) and not disappoints them...
Horrible app 1/5
What was Toyota thinking? This app is inconsistent, slow and more than half of the time it cannot connect to the GPS. I even changed out my audio system and got a new phone and it’s still horrible. I just want to get directions easily and accurately. Fix this!!!
Don't waste your time 1/5
By disappointed camry owner
Honestly, why even claim this is worthwhile. You would have an accident while trying to use this app.
App is underwhelming. So is Toyota Entune Plus with the crappy navigation. Bought a quality Garmin 100x better. Save your time and cash.
By Sienna Momma
Doesn’t know addresses that have been around for 20+ years. Subpar and the only gps system that’s supported by my Toyota minivan. Ugh!
Slow and confused 1/5
By Awesome racing
Slow and confused. That about sums it up. Worse gps/maps I have used.
Worse than you can imagine 1/5
I really wish I had done my homework before buying my my 2017 Camry. But, I took the salesman’s word & assumed this was a good product. It’s not. I can’t stress enough how bad it is. It continually loses the Bluetooth connection and I either have to do a hard reset on the phone or occasionally re-install the app. Every single time I get in my car I have no idea if the gps is even going to work. One of the world decisions I ever made & Toyota should be the subject of a class action lawsuit for outing this garbage in their cars.
This is the 1/5
By Awesomme game
Worst app I've used in a long time. Sad that I spent as much as I did on the truck and have to deal with this crap.
Very Disappointed 1/5
By Razor girl
I can not believe this Navigation App is so outdated. It has to be 20 years old and the information is so outdated. I have made numerous reports of issues with permanently closed businesses in my city and they are never taken off. Sad that Toyota can't offer their customers something better than this.
Just awful 1/5
Like most of the other reviews, this app is awful. The turn by turn directions block half the screen and you cannot ‘elect’ to hide them. The directions have been wrong since day 1. Highway exit #s are not accurate. I’d be embarrassed if I was part of the development team, let alone the enhancement team! With all of these horrible reviews, why isn’t the app being overhauled and why does Toyota continue to include it in its cars?
I’d give the app negative stars if it was possible to do!
Too Costly to Use 1/5
This app uses more data than any other GPS app I've used it's a GPS app for G-D sakes just use GPS and download Maps at home
Does not work with IOS 11 1/5
Brand new 2018 Camry - Navigation is WORTHLESS- this app crashes when run on iOS 11. Can’t use connected Nav in car that I paid a fortune for. Very poor.
Not working with iOS 11 1/5
Closes the app rather than going to the black screen with scout logo.
Map view needed 1/5
By Map disappointed
I use this with my Toyota and it really would help if I could see the map on the screen of the car I can only see it on the app on my phone and that is a bit small and dangerous when driving
By That baller40
Pointless app and head scratcher why Toyota would use this app on my 2017 Rav. I'll stick to my Maps App on my iPhone.
Worst GPS ever 1/5
It doesn't know where anything is. I tested it when I got my car and put my address in it. I was sitting in my driveway and it was saying I was still a half mile away! Same results with other addresses I tried. I was excited to finally have GPS in my car, but my excitement was quickly taken away. I guess it's back to Google on my phone.
I can't even type the location in on my screen in the car because the delay is so long. I have to type the location in on my phone before I even get near my car. It does not update restaurants near my actual location. Extremely frustrating. Useless app. Rather use Google maps!!! I am a realtor and sometimes I have to rely on GPS to get me to places. Please update and fix or find another app.
Scout GPS 1/5
By Do jeep
I bought a new Toyota RAV4 which has this for it's GPS and it's terrible. It has my home at the wrong address, it can't find a lot of places and will tell you to go left, when you go right as you need to, it acts like that is what it wanted you to do. I'm so disappointed in it. I love my new Toyota but hate the Scout gps it uses.
Surprisingly--It Works Great!! 5/5
This may sound strange, but if you take the time to learn it, it's a great GPS program! I had VERY low expectations for this app after reading all the negative reviews. We have a disc jockey service and travel to areas we aren't necessarily familiar with so having a good GPS app is a must. I figured we'd use this as a supplement to two other GPS programs on my phone. So far, it works well, shows a map with an arrow that updates as you drive, gives great turn-by-turn voice cues and two or three route options every time. There are a few quirks and I was initially frustrated but figured out how to make it work. The "keyboard" doesn't come up on the car display as it should so there is no way to type in a search address. It seems to show contacts instead of an address screen. However, you can easily use the voice recognition to enter that information. Just go into the Scout program on the car, touch the speech button on the steering wheel and tell it the address when prompted. It may ask if you would like a driving or walking route. Touch the driving option and it will show several routes with distances and arrival times and ask for the number of the route you would like. This is a great feature because some GPS programs don't give you the option of choosing the best route. Once you choose the route you would like, it will bring up a map and give voice assistance for the rest of your trip. It announces each turn well ahead of time with distances, gives estimated arrival time and lets you know when you've reached your destination. Scout seems to have everything other GPS programs have and a few extra nice features so I'm happy! We'll see how it does with a few more long distance trips but certainly right now, I'd give it a four or five. Possibly others who didn't get a moving map and turn by turn prompts hadn't made all the route choices to actually start the program. It's not perfect by any means but I like it!
No maps of streets! 1/5
All you have is directions only on Toyota entunes app ! Not useful at all. Your maps and navigation need to be like waze or google maps. I wants to see real time streets and traffic while giving me directions!
Why Toyota 1/5
So I just purchased my new Camry Friday and I was so excited. My old one had navigation an would update when I attached my phone. Loved it. So when the seller told me that my new car didn't have it and they aren't making many of with nav in the new models my instincts told me to be Leary and boy was I right. I hate this Scout app. I wish Toyota would've used google. I go back tomorrow I maybe switching for a different car bc I use my navigation all the time for work. Cars would be awesome if they hadn't done that
Even a Toyota dealer couldn't get POS to work
Lexus, GET CARPLAY! This app is ridiculous!
Pure garbage.... 1/5
By Nick 255
Absolutely unusable... completely inaccurate even in larger city's. I'm a long time Toyota fan but, I have no clue what they were thinking with this app.
Really bad, had I known Toyota forces you 1/5
To use this instead of Google, Apple or waze, I actually wouldn't have bought a Toyota. It's highly annoying and devalues the utility of the car.
Toyota why do you do that?! 1/5
Never had gps bad like that. Everytime the car display froze and just nothing happens...you try 5,6 times to restart but it doesn't improve! Back with google maps that works! Tip for Toyota, update the system with apple car play and we are all good!
Toyota, please just use waze 1/5
By Catch that disc
There are lots of good apps that actually work. Please make it so that the nav unit can connect to a better app.
They need to fix it. The only app for my vehicles multimedia center and it is completely garbage. I found it easier to guess where I was going.
this app is a scam, it does not work
If I could give it zero stars I would. Absolutely useless. Battery and data hog all day. Waze FTW!
Sometimes it works. Mostly it doesn't. It might be a quarter of a mile off. You might get close to your destination and poof the app closes. Don't bother using this app. It's free??? You get what you pay for. Why why is this on my expensive vehicle. My next car will not be a Toyota because I HATE this app. I'd give it zero stars is I could. I've had it for a year now.
Toyota should be ashamed! 1/5
Just purchased a 2018 Camry.. Tried using this yesterday. A mess. So disappointed in Toyota. Always viewed Toyota as the best quality; not anymore. They took the cheap way out on this one. Shame on you Toyota!
This is by far the worst app I've ever used! Rarely links up with the phone and when it does it does it out! Using it is worthless can't find anything half the time the directions are wrong
If only it would link to the radio display 1/5
Multiple times I've tried to use this on the radio display to no avail. Horrible and never works properly, but not bad when it does work which is like once in a blue moon.
I was happy to hear I am getting GPS in my new Toyota. Little did I know, it's a crappy version. I hate it so much. Such a waste of space
A TERRIBLE APP !! 1/5
A terrible app for a $30 thousand plus Tacoma.. I am ashamed with Toyota allowing this & it is a problem to even delete it off the Entune screen. I will give it a star for when it works.
No, it really is that bad 1/5
Had given the app the benefit of the doubt given its for a Toyota. But the UI is so bad, and the app so slow, and the connection to the (new 2017) Sienna so spotty, bought a stand to just use apple/google maps. Like it doesn't work after every five minutes entering the car bad (if don't have little ones multiply that by at least three to feel for how long that is to parents), so beyond just annoying. Toyota, if you're reading this, know as much as I like the car, and so far we really do, I may not lease my next vehicle from Toyota because of this. Really a shame...
Not sure why Lexus did not partner up with Apple play 1/5
By IPhone AT&T 12321
Save you time reading the same thing over and over. I agree with most of the reviews. Need major work. Does not connect to my car. Only when it wants to. Unhappy. Please fix
Awesome App! 5/5
The app needs my location all the time? Even when I am not using the app? Really?
I installed this today, on the recommendation of my Toyota Sales Rep. I really hope it works as well as Google Maps. If not, it will be uninstalled.
Update: this app tracks your GPS location, whether you are in your car or not. This app tracks your GPS location, whether the app is running or not. The nav is worse than the dedicated GPS unit I had more than 10 years ago.
This app has been deleted from my phone. TOYOTA: My next vehicle WILL have Apple CarPlay. Are you listening, or do I need to buy a 2017 Hyundai to make my point?
Very Bad App-0.0 rating 1/5
By Why Toyota?
Toyota the drop the ball on this one. Illogical interface, very Poor customization capabilities ...the map doesn't auto adjust, the re- routing logic must use the stars and a sextant. Makes Apple Maps look like Google and Google look like an Oracle. Save the data and save the storage space. I'm complaining to Toyoto next that they should enable a google map Interface...
By wont use it
Why was this ever created.
Don't waste your money 1/5
Simple the worst gps ever
This is one of the worst apps 1/5
This is one of the worst apps
5 thumbs up 5/5
Great app! Syncs well with my vehicle! Easy to use! Very accurate! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Terrible - Toyota should be embarrassed 1/5
Won't even connect to car even though phone connected through Bluetooth. Toyota should fire this developer, and start from scratch.
Terrible don't get hopes up 1/5
I specifically requested a car with gps and scout is not that at all especially for sprint customers who may need to answer a call while driving. It doesn't connect correctly so I just use it from my phone and can't even do that bc it tries to reconnect every 10 seconds. Terrible for your only option for vehicle navigation system.
Get used to the "Connection Failed" message
Turn by turn only, no realtime map when sync'd to my brand new Toyota. Turn by turn gives 'Unnamed' roads more than named roads and provides very little information. Toyota needs to get with it.
