Quality never getting better 2/5
I’ve owned this app a long time, and I use it when I go to other countries so that I can have offline maps. I like keeping the maps downloaded so that they’re there when I need them, however the app keeps deleting my downloads.
Furthermore, it’s been a year since the iPhone X came out, and there is still no update to use the new screen real estate.
Not just garbage, but a deliberate scam 1/5
By Maynard Handley
This app has now named itself Scout GPS, and presents the entire UI in German!. As far as I can tell, given that I don’t speak German, it has also deleted all the maps I paid for and downloaded!!!
How is it still in the App Store?
Turn off on its own. 2/5
Every time I go to see my address the app turns off. It’s touch n go. About ready to go to another gps app.
Wrong language 2/5
I would be in a better position to review this application if I could read it. My update to GPS Nav opened up as Scout GPS in what I think is the German language. Have been unsuccessful in searching through Settings (Optionen) for a way to switch language. So I have given this reorganized, merged, or whatever software only two stars for obscureness.
Newest update changed language to german. No way to switch back to english.
Rip off 1/5
Purchased it years ago and had no problems till recently when I had to reset phone. After that I cannot reinstall the United States map. I’ve tried restoring it but it just sits there forever draining the battery while doing nothing. Basically, it’s trying to recharge me for something already paid for. A complete rip off.
Revised review 5/5
Resent update change quite a bit, getting use to it I am now understanding the changes. The app function is different as it now uses more map sources, not sure if this is better but it is more confusing...
However I primarily use it for the downloadable offline maps, I don't think there are any other apps that offer this so hey here's 5 stars.
Very late in updating roads and addresses 3/5
Does not update new roads and addresses timely.
I couldnt get it going
Yikes “Scout GPS?” In German? 1/5
Seems the latest update is in German.
When I updated the app the language changed from English to another one I don't understand . 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
Supwrior navigation! 5/5
I'm blown away by the bad review I just and read wondering what software that person used. For me, this app performed as well as dedicated GPS units that cost a hundred times more! I disobeyed instructions and it compensated instantly. It warned me twice that a turn was coming up. This navigator is A STEAL at 99 cents!
Do Not buy this app 1/5
By Tranquility hippie
This app does not work and it does absolutely nothing.
Waste of money and a scam.
Don't waste your time 1/5
Absolutely awful! This app advertises as working offline, I downloaded a map and set navigation while online, but it would not update offline as I traveled! I was lost in the dark at 5am in the morning, very frustrating.
Good software for th eprice 3/5
The app itself is well designed and implemented. The maps are out of date at places. The app needs an option allowing to pause navigation.
I use it all the time in Europe. No need for internet connection.
Es buena 3/5
Es muy buena pero en mi iPhone 6s Plus se me cierra al momento de abrirlo y tengo que abrir una vea más para que funcione y de lo de más bien pero creo que deberían actualizar la versión se está quedando y el iOS nuevo como que da problemas
(READ THIS EXTENSIVE REVIEW) 5/5
***THIS APP HASNT BEEN UPDATD SINCE 9/15, LOOKS LIKE THE DEVS ABANDONED SHIP***
THE FOLLOWING WAS MY ORIGINAL REVIEW 2 YEARS AGO. SINCE THEN GOOGLE MAPS HAS TAKEN OVER AS KING WITH APPLE A CLOSE 2ND.
I never, ever write reviews because if you're like me you never, ever read them. However, I found it necessary to write a review about this app for the following reason. I've been testing a few navigation apps (6 to be exact) for about 6 months now. I drive about 100 miles every day so I've have the time and patience to test several GPS apps extensively. If you want to know the list here it is...1. Google Maps, 2. Waze, 3. Scout, 4. Motion X, 5. Apple Maps, 6. This Nav app. I'll tell you right off the bat to discard Apple Maps, it's the worst of the bunch. I used each app for exactly 1 month and then I switched to the other. I never used a different one during the month long test because I wanted to give it real world testing and not cheat by switching to another one mid-navigation. I chose 10 categories to grade each one but I won't bore you with specifics. Each Navigation app has differences that make it good but the best all around came down to 3 apps. Waze, Google Maps, and this one. I chose this one as the winner for a few reasons. The most important is for the obvious reason we all use navigation apps. To get from A to B in the least amount of time, and with the best route always being presented. That's what I got with this app. Don't get me wrong, both Waze and GMaps (which are now the same company) are great at routing but I don't like all the distractions on Waze, and if no one reports any activity in Waze the other users won't know about it. The re-routing was ok, not great, it took me on a lot of side street chases. Plus I don't like the cartoonish feel. GMaps had up-to-date maps but I didn't like the fact that you had to be constantly checking the screen to see if the next major turn was slower or faster so I could take it. The street views where outdated, and it never came back from landscape mode if you held your phone sideways. Finally, I left this app for last. I did buy the RPT traffic for $10 since it promised a much better routing experience. The menus could be a little cleaner and less cluttered and I don't really like the fact that I asks you to rate the app almost after every drive. As far as routing, this is hands down the best of all 6 apps. I never deviated from the presented route and on several occasion I found myself on a side streets zipping by huge freeway backups. I was always rerouted if a better route was found and traffic would update about every 5 minutes so it was always up to date. In closing, I still continue to switch between Waze and this only because I like the fact that Waze tells you where the cops are. If they incorporated that feature into the next update on this app I'd kick Waze to the curb. Well that's it, hope I helped someone make an informed decision!
Changes not incorporated 3/5
The map is awfully out of date. Submitted changes are never incorporated. Does not know one-ways, or streets that exist already for years. Often it instructs to keep to the wrong side. Not great, but will work without internet connection if destination pre-programmed ahead of time.
Great app 5/5

I wanted to find a GPS app to use in the U.S. that didn't require the use of data and tried this one. It's fantastic! I tried it a few times here in Europe before leaving and it worked perfectly. And in the US, in four different states, in several cities and in the countryside it also worked perfectly! What a life saver. Using a data connection would have cost me a lot of money, but with this app I didn't need to.
Please make Persian font better 4/5

Best app 5/5
By Cesar S.
Love the free drive mode. Works great
Very bad battery usage...Speach feature broken... 1/5
While I find it works well, it drains the battery even when not showing in the app switcher. I've just tried denying it location services to see if that stops the battery drain when not in use.
The configuration seems to support it being a little better in terms of battery usage, it still keeps using location services in background. Ending the app is the safest way.
Now the spoken directions have stopped working. A couple of directions are spoken, then silence.

Great use often
Lack of updates 2/5
Well over a year since updated....
GPS app with favorites 5/5
I needed a GPS app that let me save favorites and this app does it! Great price too!
Cool app 5/5
Thank you for this app it's been very helpful as I travel across the country.
Needs better search input method 4/5
Good app! Would give it 5 stars if you didn't have to toggle from field to field to input for address searches.
Downloaded while on an Amtrak Trip 5/5
Needed to see where we were. This App showed us the Rail Tracks, kept track of our progress, etc. Great for the money!
GPS navigacija koja radi, najviše mi se sviđa jer ima opciju biciklo koji vozim kao lud u poslednje vreme.
Love this app!! I depend on it for all my adventures work & otherwise. Doesn't mean that there isn't occasionally a misguided path (all the more reason to still know how to navigate independently of ANY GPS) but so far has always got me where I'm going.
My favorite navigation software 4/5
This is my go-to software for general street navigation. It has some flaws though. The most glaring flaw is that it still does not show the street where I live. I have lived here for nearly three years and the street was here for some additional length of time before my home was built in January of 2014. Is that the only needle in this haystack? Not likely. So there are surely a lot of other roads built in the past three years that are not shown on the maps. The maps seriously need an update.
Great offline 4/5

Offline Map of Pattaya, Thailand, seems good
Love this app! 5/5
Very accurate mapping.
ALMOST KILLED ME!!! 1/5
By Writers blockers
Do not get this app! I am a new driver and I put in the address to my grandparents and it took me onto the highway. It should have just taken me through town. I have never been on the highway before (I am 19) and I panicked and I got in a car accident on the highway going like 70. I almost died. Please DO NOT get this app. It rerouted me to go to Phoenix when I live in Tucson!
Works well in a pinch 4/5
I use this app offline on iPhone. Set navigation with free wifi at McDonald's. Almost as easy to use as a std gps device. Easy to see maps, easy to understand directions and reasonably accurate. Since it was free I forgive any outdated directions. Never gotten lost.
Very helpful! 4/5
I used this app just yesterday as I drove thru unfamiliar terrain, and it got me exactly where I needed to be with no problem!
AVOID THIS APP! AVOID THIS APP! 1/5
While I was going to school with this GPS, it was giving me the wrong location. Maybe this gps isn't compatible with the location. Also it was giving me the wrong route. This app is so junky and to the trash it goes!
Great app 5/5
Works better than apples maps.
By Ak in Alaska
I downloaded this for a trip to Germany. Now that I am here, I can't even get my current location to show because it tells me I have to enable my location
Service. It is and has been on. Tried rebooting, wifi on/off, different locations throughout the country and everything else I could think of. No joy. Downloaded the free country map for Germany too but that's no good if it doesn't know where to start
This APP is awesome. 5/5
It's been very helpful each day.
I'll tell you after I get to use it
Great bargain 5/5
This was one of the best apps I got for my PAD! Easy to get directions and easy to follow.
Maping not good; hard to use 1/5
Making in NE USA bad. Difficult and inflexible to use. Awkward to stop GPS. Apple or Google maps better. A plus is giving speed limit on road. Cheap but not worth the cost.
Very dicent for the money. 4/5
By Sery Volk
Excelent price, pretty good navigation, excelent menu structure with confusing and non-intuitive interface.
Navigation is quite accurate, on par with TomTom and Google, but display can use some improvements, such as "Lane display" at exits and major road intersections.
Better GUI won't hurt either.
When I tried to add "Favorite" destination first time, took me 6-7 attempts to find out the last step is "map" button. Couldn't they just say "save" or "add"???
But overall a very nice product, and you can't ask for more for 20 dollars.
Terrible app! 1/5
These maps are wrong. The street where I live is mis-labeled as a different street, and that makes the whole navigation useless. Awful!
Worth supporting 4/5
This is a solid app that does a lot for free. Battery drain can be an issue, but a car charger is probably something most phone users already have, problem solved. More like a traditional gps unit than google maps, thank you!
