Get Scout on your device and find out yourself, why the app has been sold millions of times (as “skobbler”) and has been one of the highest-rated map solutions for years.
In the following, you’ll find more detailed information on some of those points:
OFFLINE MAPS BASED ON OPENSTREETMAP
- In addition to the already included free country map, your app can optionally be enhanced with favorably priced map packages for offline usage (at a bargain price).
- Save storage space and install only those maps you currently need. That’s how the app can easily be customized to suit your needs.
- You get continuous map updates. Free of charge, of course.
- More than 1.5 million contributors make the OpenStreetMap one of the most detailed and dynamic digital maps, that is brought closer to perfection every day.
- The new feedback feature enables you to provide manual feedback directly from the main menu, whereas audio reporting allows you to notify us of any map bugs while in active navigation.
NAVIGATION WITH TRAFFIC INFORMATION AND SPEED CAM WARNING
- Let yourself be navigated to your destination. Precise and clearly understandable voice instruction will show you the way.
- Choose from three alternative routes and go for the best way.
- The already included traffic information feature keeps you updated on the current traffic situation. Avoid being caught up in traffic jams and make a detour round construction sites.
- International INRIX Traffic: This optional upgrade provides you with superior traffic intelligence by international market leader INRIX. It will greatly enhance routing during turn-by-turn navigation and displays additional color-coded information on the current traffic situation.
- Our free speed cam warning feature alerts you when approaching fixed speed cameras while in free drive or navigation mode and prevents you from getting speeding tickets.
Please note that the continuous use of the GPS will cause the battery to discharge more quickly. That’s why we recommend to leave your device connected to the charging cable during the entire trip.

Hard to fault for the price. Once you've saved some favourite destinations and downloaded maps so it works offline, and got used to the strangely laid out preferences, it's very reliable and won't let you down when out of range of mobile data networks. But you do have to spend time learning to use it properly as it's not very intuitive- don't expect your passenger to be able to use it while you're driving - sure recipe for arguments! Sometimes it will cling to a route even when you are going more directly, and try to get you to backtrack unnecessarily, but in the main it's fine. I often run it in parallel with google maps and switch to whichever is behaving better at the time. What I desperately need though are waypoints that I can put in manually to have more control over the route.
Fantastic sat nav
I have used this app all over the world and have never had a issue using it. It even had every road on a recent visit to koh toa a very small island in Thailand.
I prefer to use this app than the sat nav in my jag as it shows all the speed cams even the ones all over Europe and it's 100% accurate. You can also plot every place you want to visit on your travels including hotels, restaurants and places of interest and save in your favourites. This was particularly useful on a resent road trip to the alps to drive all the passes.
Love the fact that you can download each country in the world individually so it does not use all my phones hard drive.
It is probably the best value for money app you can buy (cost me £8.99 for the whole world)but that was a couple of years ago.
Lots of my friends have brought this on my recommendation and all love using it instead of their cars SatNav.
Do not hesitate buying this app it's the business.
Problems with directions
Mostly this app is useful in the UK
I however purchased the world maps
Spain mainland directions are awful
France similar to Spain
USA .... Used a limited amount seemed ok in the area I was in
Ireland was perfectly fine
The app could do with more precise information, give plenty of notice of which turn is yours if there are multiple turns available, if the slip road breaks off left right or even in three it gives no indication on which to take until 400 yards after you toss a coin and find it to be the incorrect turn
Speed camera option is pointless .... Warns when there is none and when there is ..... no warning
Update - Canada is now awful, sends you to wrong addresses sometimes 10 miles from the actual place
Used to enjoy this app having paid for the whole thing - now it's a waste of my time and money
It's unusable - also it doesn't give road positions, doesn't give you the correct turnings, sometimes it will say turn left but on the screen it shows a right turn
A perfectly good app ruined
