Gives incorrect routes
This app used to work. I replaced motion x gps with this. It’s very glitchy. Gets stuck, constantly reroutes you and will never get you where you need to be on time. Turn by turn directions went from bad to worse. Highly dissatisfied and upset with this apps performance. If you want to constantly get lost and waste gas rerouting use this app.
2017 Sienna 1/5
By Garfield Morrison
Does not have turn by turn navigation with maps in 2018. Sounds quite backward to me.
Funny that I’m seeing this trend and reporting it to E-commerce. That I paid for this app years ago and used it and it worked a little better than the rest. But when I tried to use it today, I discovered that the “free” - how is it free when I PAID FOR IT???? - version is 100 percent USELESS. So another grateful developer who thinks it’s their amazing app that put it on top and not the early users, making suggestions and high ratings. Not us. We didn’t tell all of our friends. It couldn’t be us because then they would show some loyalty and people who have been users from launch through the date they changed this to a subscription would be grandfathered. Because WE had as much to do with promoting and supporting this app as anyone else. Instead of a thank you and continued use I now have to delete it. Hi five to another hungry band of thieves.
Disappointed First Time User 1/5
i will not upgrade just to get sound
Wrong directions 1/5
By I am Missus G
Sent me to house not the business I was looking for
The app is okay. About 40% of the time it will give incorrect directions.
Just aweful 1/5
On multiple occasions scout has told me to turn on roads that don’t exist or to use someone’s driveway to get from on street to another. I liked this gps when it first came out but has declined to total garbage. I understand the Pocono’s can be tricky but not being from this area and not always knowing where to go I like the help. Get it together and try harder scout.
Don’t like 3/5
By wow Micky
I don’t like friends in my contact being able to see places I like
Love this app. Use it everyday. Excellent at showing you business close by
App is Crap, clear and obvious better choices out there.
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.
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 Get Around 5/5
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 1/5
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 1/5
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,
Failed subscription 3/5
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 4/5
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 2/5
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.
RD ENTERPRISE 5/5
This Scout map is the best location site I’ve ever come across 👍
Need Apple Car Play! 1/5
Crap mapping system!
Odessa - regional 4/5
Scout is the only GPS system I use from my I phone. It actually takes you where you need to be. If you put in 141 grant st, that is where it’ll take you. I love using scout
where is the functional Nav panel? 1/5
I miss my old navigation system. If my phone was in my purse or unavailable. I could touch the navigation button on my car and it would pop up a map of my current location & I could zoom in or-out to view options. With this Scout system, I have to use mapquest or Google maps off of my phone. I might as well get out the old paper maps that used to be in my glove box to see where i am. I’m so unhappy, I wish i’d bought a different car
No turn by turn view! 1/5
By BB's toy
After using GPS for over 10 years with turn by turn map views this app is like going back to the Stone Age! We took my first road trip in my new Toyota yesterday trying to use the Scout navigation system. What a frustrating mess! After several missed turns due to the lack of a turn by turn map we turned it off and used Google maps! I’m now looking for a phone mount for my truck so I can avoid using this app!
No satellite view 3/5

What happened to Scout 1/5
It’s hard to work through he app. It’s sends me all around and out the way. I been with scout for 12 years this is the worst
Data mining 1/5
App now demands your phone number before it opens. I deleted it instantly.
Hit or Miss? 1/5
By ARFF Mechanic
I have a Tacoma and constantly get message ( phone application not detected please ensure Scout GPS Link is running on your phone) which it is. Very poor customer support
Hundreds of Places 5/5
I have used this app 1000 times to navigate in my car. Sadly, iOS updates and age have made the battery life insufficient on the 5s iPhone. I came to expect that you would have created an iPad. Now I just use Maps with gps driving instructions, but it would be nice to see Scout again. Won't somebody consider creating a version of this app for cellular iPads?
By George labus
I like it. No matter what I cannot hate Telenav. I grew up with it before google maps and all that. My dad had it on his work blackberry and I loved how I could tell it with my voice where to go. This service is nostalgic and I really don’t care if anyone thinks it’s bad it’s a reminder of my childhood that I cannot forget
HUGE disappointment after years of use! 1/5
Years ago I got the paid GPS app and loved it.. then the updates started rolling in to turn a simple perfect GPS platform into a mobile social networking platform. Now your prompted to give your phone number with promises of privacy but also told that the information is shared as well as your location . Also your given a warning not to use while driving but then the entire platform is to use with a friend while in vehicles driving... can't wait to see when the lawsuits start coming in on that one! Also now they want you to sign up and pay monthly fees for social media while driving and not sue them for it. Scout... I and many others as you can see in the reviews just wanted a simple, clean working GPS without having to buy another device to stick in the vehicle nothing more, nothing less. I had even PAID for the app to get the GPS service... now you want me to pay for services I don't want, don't need, and won't use even though I paid for the GPS service already???!!! That's just DIRTY business! I have already PAID for the GPS part of this app so I should get what I PAID FOR!!!
Scout Plus 2/5
I paid for premium in order to download the maps, it came off of my credit card but it keeps saying I have to purchase. There’s no way that I found to restore purchases.
Monthly Fee?? 1/5
Love Scout 5/5
I travel a lot and I can always depend on Scout to get me there.
Don’t bother 1/5
By Pooh lover55
This app wants to take me on routes that are less than direct and have gotten me lost in north NJ several times. On the way to my daughter’s, it took me almost 20 minutes out of my way.
DONT DOWNLOAD! 1/5
All these apps send out updates every 2 weeks and can’t even explain what’s in them. They are involved with phone companies to take up all the space in ur phone so u will buy another 1
Confused with Scout GPS Link 5/5
By Purple Mafia 7
Scout is Excellent!!!
Scout GPS Link needs to be improved!!!!
I downloaded the app, linked to my new Toyota and the app doesn’t work.
The app is also frozen on my cell phone.
Scout Map 1/5
By lipstick Mafia.
In the beginning use this my everyday for work was good. Up to a few weeks ago It started acting out really bad. I keep giving it opportunities to fix it self and it keeps disappointing me. I will have to go back to Google or Waze. Scout Map needs a serious fixing.
By madzilla 10
This app is the best.
Must provide your PHONE NUMBER 1/5
The idea that you have to provide your PHONE NUMBER to even open an app to evaluate whether you want to sign up and use it is a joke. Equally so is a company that doesn’t trust you without you providing them with a code while at the same time telling you to trust them when they say they won’t share your phone number.
Owner Operator 5/5
By Bat 21 Trucking
Love the app
Requires a phone number at launch now. Pass. 2/5
i’ve been disappointed in this app lately 1/5
i used to LOVE this app. it always got me to my destination. But lately the app has been giving me the LONGEST routes ever!!! and it doesn’t even get me to my destinations anymore... it’ll say i’m at my destination and i’m on the side of the road looking at nothing... i switched to Waze and that seems to be doing better for me lately. Please Scout get it together this used to be my favorite reliable GPS app!
Will not give phone number or other personal info to try this B/S. You have this info at download. Supposed to be a Navigation app, not a Social Media app.
Got confused 1/5
By Sra. V.
The app announced my arrival to my previous destination instead of the new destination I selected.
Good Navigator 3/5
By Lyn Deb
When I first joined Scout, we really loved how clean and precise it was in getting us from point A to point B. It was also dependable. Not so much lately. We used to be able to put in an address and have it pop up right away. Now it seems like we have to struggle at times by pulling over to the side of the ride or driving aimlessly before it registers. It seems like these simple problems occurred as Scout started adding more to its program. We really would like to see Scout go back to simplifying and working more on making their program better in getting us back to going from place A to B than inviting friends and all the other extras. Our priority is to stick in an address, have it come up within the next 5 seconds with the all round best route - nothing more.
