Used to work

This app used to be great but idk what happened I put in the address 2 time and it sent me to the opposite side of the city I needed to be in. My dad put the same address into google maps and it took us to where we needed to be.

Why do I keep getting routed down Bourbon Street
by sparkparker on 2019/02/08 22:04
Scout is pretty accurate and it is my first choice when I get ready to go somewhere. But once again, this morning, I was routed down Bourbon Street. No one should ever be routed down Bourbon Street! It is often cordoned off to traffic, and even when it isn’t, it’s no fun having to drive an obstacle course of drunk tourists! I don’t know how to give feedback on this app, but I hope someone in the upper hierarchy is reading this.
Lost
by Shyhiguy on 2019/02/08 16:07
Awesome app. I use this one about 98% of the time driving. Always going to new places and I always get there with scout
Great app but...
by SmallFryAmI on 2019/01/11 00:40
I like this app much more than most standard phone map apps. My favorite part is that it tells you what’s coming next...”turn left and then, keep right” it helps make it easier to not feel like you have to watch your phone (which is no good if you do t have a passenger to help navigate). I love that I can also send people my ETA and they can track if I’ve made it safely. As a small woman, this helps me feel safer and more secure. My one issue? The “foodie” link in the corner. I have issues with food and it’s a bit triggering. I would much prefer that be a quick link to my “favorites” instead. Can you please implement the ability to either disable to foodie option or make that a quick link to my favorites so I don’t have to go to my profile and then to my favorites every time?

Gives incorrect routes
Unreliable
by Zootropic on 2019/01/04 01:40
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.

Does not have turn by turn navigation with maps in 2018. Sounds quite backward to me.
Disrespect
by Vampaliciousss on 2018/12/11 04:07
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.

The app is okay. About 40% of the time it will give incorrect directions.
Just aweful
by frmrhhguy on 2018/10/27 15:59
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.

Terrible!
by 1bubba4u on 2018/08/11 15:42
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.

Contacts and favorite places
by charesepel on 2018/08/03 08:57
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.
Bad
by icksel on 2018/08/02 11:50
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
by redleg53 on 2018/08/01 13:34
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,

Used to be better
by Patches.whitehead on 2018/07/04 17:50
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
by Rivermesquite on 2018/07/02 13:53
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.

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?
by airjude on 2018/04/30 16:58
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!
by BB's toy on 2018/04/30 12:01
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!

Hundreds of Places
by chris645 on 2018/03/30 18:06
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?
Nostalgia
by George labus on 2018/03/19 13:49
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!
by ArcAngel3031 on 2018/03/12 02:08
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!!!
Monthly Fee??

by Pooh lover55 on 2018/01/26 13:50
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!
by Mooseass on 2018/01/22 22:17
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

Must provide your PHONE NUMBER
by yapishkahilt on 2018/01/07 21:32
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.

by campyguy on 2017/12/28 22:59
I installed Scout on a new iPhone, and was presented with a request for a phone number with a “promise” they won’t share it with anybody - then I read their Privacy Policy. I don’t like their not-so-private Privacy Policy, and deleted the app. I'm almost 60 now, no need for social media accounts or this app.
i’ve been disappointed in this app lately
by JoshRashaad on 2017/12/23 05:42
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!
No
by jayt1952 on 2017/12/08 17:56
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
by Sra. V. on 2017/11/23 01:39
The app announced my arrival to my previous destination instead of the new destination I selected.
Good Navigator
by Lyn Deb on 2017/11/16 15:28
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
by Sam in Mass on 2017/11/12 20:03
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
by ChipSD on 2017/11/09 18:34
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
by Doc Franklinstein on 2017/11/07 02:34
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!
by Myaboo537 on 2017/10/31 19:56
Scout never lets me down. It always gives me the best way to my destination.

Needs work
by Kesharesto on 2017/10/10 00:44
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
by Jsers53 on 2017/10/09 15:42
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
Disappointment
by DugbuddTX on 2017/10/05 03:05
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
by Rod2526 on 2017/10/02 01:58
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
by ReconMarine911 on 2017/09/25 22:07
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...

Not Sure What Happened
by Darian D on 2017/08/31 01:32
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
by -SeekOne- on 2017/08/27 18:39
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
by Tried by JM on 2017/08/19 21:31
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 Little_birdie on 2017/07/23 00:27
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 !
by Bob-n-Oso on 2017/07/18 17:32
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.
Scout
by Cheree S on 2017/07/17 13:28
For a free app, I cannot complain. You can get me basically from point a to point B. Occasionally he'll give me the wrong side of the street. But, again for a free app I am thankful to be able to use it to get me from point a to point B
this is a horrible gps app

Horrible search ahead
by Rottenweiler on 2017/07/12 01:04
Scout has been doing this a while and its search along route is horrendous. If it cant find anything it locks you on the error message oops we cant find whatever and has no button to return to navigation. Further more it doesnt even search along the route. It gives you crap that would require a 20 to 30 minute detour. Its overall very un intuitive

I have been using Scout as my navigation app for as long as I can remember. It's always gotten me to where I'm going and I would recommend it to anyone who uses GPS. I'm using the free version.
Better Than Before
by Jaylin G on 2017/06/25 15:11
This Thing Used to Have Syncing Issues. All My Liked and Recent Locations Never Showed Up When I Was on LTE, But Showed On Wifi. I Had to Restart My Device to Get it Working. I had stop using for a While but now it seems to be working and im very glad all my locations are still here!
You've ruined Scout
by grandama driver on 2017/06/21 13:28
The only response I get to searches is oops! I'm very disappointed in what you've done. I'd used scout so often & found it helpful in the past. I will have to delete the app since it no longer functions for me.
Needs updating
by Oneseason21 on 2017/06/10 20:31
I've had this app for several years and more and more frequently it fails to locate my destinations. I've given up and gone to google apps
Lexus incompetence. Completely useless
by Gregg, Santa Barbara on 2017/05/29 18:49
Not sure if made specifically for Lexus but that's why I tried it. Thankfully the best option by far is to just use your smart phone. It works like a beta version that fails miserably. I tried it several times since it was provided specifically to enhance the Lexus features and software pre-installed (in a new 2017 Lexus). Lexus should be embarrassed.
Didn't try, requires phone number to work

How long does it take for them to figure out how to change profile pic

People have been requesting over two years to be able to change profile Pic.
Used to be good.....
by W_Panic on 2017/05/06 00:15
This was once a great app. However, after a number of misroutes I am banishing it from my phone.
Not a fan of new update
by Nicoleby on 2017/05/04 18:33
I've had this app for ages, love it and use it all the time. Only once it steered me wrong. Used it to travel out of state. I'm not a fan for the update dumping everything I had. All my recents, my favorites my username everything gone. Not happy about that. Some of that stuff I won't be able to get back.
Review
by 156797ted on 2017/05/03 19:35
I just wrote a bad review and at the end was asked to select to how many stars to award out of five stars. I selected 2 stars. After writing an exhaustively detailed review of the problems this navigator has, The review software dumped my entire review by statin that my nickname was already taken. It did that at the end of the review instead of at the beginning when I chose a nickname. That was a way of posting only good reviews. This time I'm going to press five stars to test my theory. Oops, they got me again, there's no visible way to post this interview-that choice has been removed from the screen, I guess my number has been flagged as one that gives a bad review. I'll save it and wait for another day to see if that works. Nickname already taken seems to be the method of filtering out my reviews no matter what name I put in it dumps my review and says nickname already taken.
Gave me wrong turn
by Shanksssss on 2017/05/01 20:53
Got a 500 dollar ticket because of this app! Directed me to a toll road lane and overall bad with directions. I'm using Waze now
Used to be great
by DiesOutHere on 2017/04/29 13:15
UPDATE: I tried contacting the developers about the issues with this app. It was a huge pain just to figure out how to do that, because it's not intuitive. They finally sent a rude response that implied I'm misusing the app or that I didn't keep up with updates, and it's not their problem anyway. I'm done with Scout. ORIGINAL REVIEW: This was my go-to navigation app. Even when it suddenly changed my directions and led me on a seemingly out-of-the-way path, I'd find out later that it was steering me around a new accident. Now not only does it give bad directions (the destination is one exit north! Why send me south for two exits just to turn around?), it just randomly lost all my recents and favorites, including my home and work addresses. It says I'm still logged in, so it won't let me log in again. The estimated arrival time used to be spot-on. Now it's waaay off, generally in a way that makes me very late. I miss Telenav. Scout, either get yourself together super-fast or I'm looking for a new app.
Was good
by rgbub30 on 2017/04/27 21:54
Does not work at for me since the update. What a waste of a download and my time. I would give it a 0 star if there was one.
Not great anymore
by Green Gunslinger on 2017/04/23 18:22
I have used this for years. Recently it has given me bad directions sending me miles in the wrong direction and just to the wrong end of a street sometimes. It has also told me to turn the wrong way on to one way streets. Then it just shut down and told me to pay. I would happily have done this, except they never text me the code as they state they will.
Outstanding Navigation Update
by Dave Loomis on 2017/04/20 13:58
I left my original assessment below for comparison. Versions created since the original have not worked out. Much more difficult to use. Recently added a feature "on my way" which is pulling from an old contact list and doesn't find my wife or either of my sons as they entered with first name only. I have used many navigation apps and Scout is "head and shoulders" above them all. Many subtle features the others haven't even thought about.
Used to be better
by Patches.whitehead on 2018/07/04 17:50
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.
HUGE disappointment after years of use!
by ArcAngel3031 on 2018/03/12 02:08
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!!!
Bluetooth has never worked for iOS
by ReconMarine911 on 2017/09/25 22:07
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...
Great app but...
by SmallFryAmI on 2019/01/11 00:40
I like this app much more than most standard phone map apps. My favorite part is that it tells you what’s coming next...”turn left and then, keep right” it helps make it easier to not feel like you have to watch your phone (which is no good if you do t have a passenger to help navigate). I love that I can also send people my ETA and they can track if I’ve made it safely. As a small woman, this helps me feel safer and more secure. My one issue? The “foodie” link in the corner. I have issues with food and it’s a bit triggering. I would much prefer that be a quick link to my “favorites” instead. Can you please implement the ability to either disable to foodie option or make that a quick link to my favorites so I don’t have to go to my profile and then to my favorites every time?
Disappointment
by DugbuddTX on 2017/10/05 03:05
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.
Good Navigator
by Lyn Deb on 2017/11/16 15:28
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.
Disrespect
by Vampaliciousss on 2018/12/11 04:07
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.
Why do I keep getting routed down Bourbon Street
by sparkparker on 2019/02/08 22:04
Scout is pretty accurate and it is my first choice when I get ready to go somewhere. But once again, this morning, I was routed down Bourbon Street. No one should ever be routed down Bourbon Street! It is often cordoned off to traffic, and even when it isn’t, it’s no fun having to drive an obstacle course of drunk tourists! I don’t know how to give feedback on this app, but I hope someone in the upper hierarchy is reading this.
Hundreds of Places
by chris645 on 2018/03/30 18:06
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?
Nostalgia
by George labus on 2018/03/19 13:49
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
where is the functional Nav panel?
by airjude on 2018/04/30 16:58
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
Contacts and favorite places
by charesepel on 2018/08/03 08:57
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.
No turn by turn view!
by BB's toy on 2018/04/30 12:01
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!
i’ve been disappointed in this app lately
by JoshRashaad on 2017/12/23 05:42
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!
Lagging voice instructions
by ChipSD on 2017/11/09 18:34
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
Review
by marcell60 on 2018/05/03 12:06
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
Confused with Scout GPS Link
by Purple Mafia 7 on 2018/01/18 16:46
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.
Requires a phone number at launch now. Pass.
by campyguy on 2017/12/28 22:59
I installed Scout on a new iPhone, and was presented with a request for a phone number with a “promise” they won’t share it with anybody - then I read their Privacy Policy. I don’t like their not-so-private Privacy Policy, and deleted the app. I'm almost 60 now, no need for social media accounts or this app.
Unreliable
by Zootropic on 2019/01/04 01:40
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.
Bad
by icksel on 2018/08/02 11:50
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
Just aweful
by frmrhhguy on 2018/10/27 15:59
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.
Failed subscription
by ImBats on 2018/07/19 14:51
I have tried multiple times to subscribe for the plus version but it always fails, while my account is charged. Please fix.
Invasion of privacy
by Sam in Mass on 2017/11/12 20:03
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.
Lost
by Shyhiguy on 2019/02/08 16:07
Awesome app. I use this one about 98% of the time driving. Always going to new places and I always get there with scout
Excellent navigation application

I Get Around
by Mytucents on 2018/08/04 14:22
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!
Some locations not searchable
by Rivermesquite on 2018/07/02 13:53
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.
On my Toyota
by redleg53 on 2018/08/01 13:34
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,
Scout Map
by lipstick Mafia. on 2018/01/17 00:20
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.
Telenav GPS was better
by Doc Franklinstein on 2017/11/07 02:34
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!
by Myaboo537 on 2017/10/31 19:56
Scout never lets me down. It always gives me the best way to my destination.

Worst navigation app!! Steer clear
by Rod2526 on 2017/10/02 01:58
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
Used to work
by Azmestiza on 2019/05/04 13:57
This app used to be great but idk what happened I put in the address 2 time and it sent me to the opposite side of the city I needed to be in. My dad put the same address into google maps and it took us to where we needed to be.
IMPROVED TOO MUCH
by Jsers53 on 2017/10/09 15:42
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
Don’t like

DONT DOWNLOAD!
by Mooseass on 2018/01/22 22:17
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
Don’t bother
by Pooh lover55 on 2018/01/26 13:50
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.
Terrible!
by 1bubba4u on 2018/08/11 15:42
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.

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.
What happened to Scout
by Smart_Chick1005 on 2018/04/22 01:40
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
Hit or Miss?
