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
No Satellite view
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.
Blue Tooth doesn’t connect to iphone 6S 1/5
Crap mapping system!
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.
Invasion of privacy 1/5
By Sam in Mass
Long time ago I used this app. as a backup.
After getting a new phone and updating the app, I notice it’s useless unless you give them your phone number. What a waste.
To share arrival time, just forget sharing with any non-contact person. You have to make the person a “contact” before sharing ETA.
Lagging voice instructions 3/5
The voice directions seem to lag about 10 minutes behind where I actually am when I am driving. I don’t see any settings and how to change this and that makes the app pretty useless
Telenav GPS was better 1/5
By Doc Franklinstein
Apart from losing my address book, the current version of scout “hangs” on profile.
I installed it on my wife’s iPhone 5 my brand new 6 and m daughters 6.
Same “hang” that says “preparing”
I believe Telenav GPS was more configurable for detail. But I will attribute that to “learning curve”
Everything tells me Scout is a downgrade.
Love it! 5/5
Scout never lets me down. It always gives me the best way to my destination.
Been using for about 7+years. Pretty convenient.
Needs work 3/5
It's good but not great there's different routs that are way quicker that the gps don't tell you about
IMPROVED TOO MUCH 2/5
The old Telenav was great, and had everything you needed right on the interface. This is great for bells and whistles not much in simplicity. And your old telenav yearly account does not transfer
Going into a Toyota Tacoma, which I love, and dealing with the Scout GPS is pain. Sometimes the gps App I the truck allows me to search for addresses (when it is connected to my app on my iPhone), sometimes it doesn’t. It didn’t earlier today until I was almost to my destination. No traffic. I finally entered the address, and although my destination was about a half mile ahead on the right, straight road without traffic, it was directing me to turn left at the next light. Makes no sense.
Update: You gave the option to choose highways, car pool lanes, and avoid tolls. If you turn highways ton"green" it's actually avoiding highways. I don't know why the word "avoid" is left out on the highways option. I'll raise my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars.
Worst navigation app!! Steer clear 1/5
Routing is horrible, will put you into traffic where Waze & Google will give you an alternate route. Devs are more concerned with making this a social networking app than a true navigation app. Their stupidity killed this app
Bluetooth has never worked for iOS 3/5
I would give this app 5 stars if they could ever get the Bluetooth audio to work while driving. I got this function to work once for a few minutes years ago when I use to own the iPhone 4s but never worked for my iPhone 5s nor my 128g 6s iPhone. I love using my BlueParrott headsets while driving, they are the best Bluetooth headsets on the market and this is THE only app it doesn't work on.
I find this flaw with Scout to be very dangerous while driving. Scout is by far the best navigational app out there but I'm only left with Google maps because their Bluetooth audio has always worked except google can't pronounce Hawaiian street names and Scout can very effectively. I would love to one day only need Scout for my navigational needs. Bluetooth audio seems to be a common complaint in your reviews, I hope you finally address this issue sometime this year or the next...
Excellent navigation application 5/5
By Internet Dealer
Does the job very well!! Sometimes there's very minor glitches.
Great App 5/5
By COACH TIPTON
Still figuring it out though.
Best mapping around. 5/5
Absolutely love it, never let me down. Much more pleasant to listen to than the others.
Not Sure What Happened 2/5
By Darian D
I reinstalled this app after a long time and suddenly 90% of the features I remember are gone. It used to give you many categories of destinations to find (restaurants, lodging, gas stations, recreation, etc). Now its only features are a standard GPS (without suggested destinations) and a system to coordinate routes with friends. Very odd changes. Currently the app doesn't do anything other apps don't already do better.
Too bad 1/5
This app was pretty good and something I used often until the recent change where it required me to input my phone number in order to use it. I'm not sure why it needs my phone number nor do I care why the developers feel that they need it. I uninstalled and switched back to what I had been using before trying this app.
On the go 5/5
By Tried by JM
I have traveled many places in the United States. I love the way scout maps gives a detailed directions whenever needed.
It is very easy to use. All directions are voice activated. Very very seldom is there an error and the directions.
By egnnkmmnfmhch fclflttvyrrmnkvg
Settings aren't user friendly 3/5
Prefer Apple Maps/Google Maps. The settings are unnecessarily complicated in Scout
Great App 4/5
By Wee Zoe
I use this app whenever I am traveling to a new destination... works for me every time.
It is a good app but it don't reroute my location if I miss my turn.
Superior app gone sour 1/5
I downloaded this app years ago in my iPhone 4S and it worked like a champ never failed me. Now the app doesn't seems to know where I am. I constantly get the error that GPS is too weak and I'm told that I have a 33 hr drive to something working 15-20 minutes of my location.
Not the same app for car ! 1/5
This is only an app for your cell phone was trying to get a better app for to use in my Toyota Tacoma. The other Scout app is terrible !!! Please upgrade, fix, do something to allow users a better nav to use with the system that came with Toyotas. I am reviewing here because your Scout app will not let me. This is the same company that makes this app. Maybe that is because of all the bad reviews.
