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.
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.
What's New in Version 7.0
Today you receive Scout's new version. It contains the following enhancements:
- Pedestrian navigation: From now on, you'll be able to enjoy a real turn-by-turn navigation, also while on your way as pedestrian.
- Car finder: Pinpoint where you parked and never lose the way back to your car.
- Text-to-speech: Voice prompts are now also including street names for an even better orientation.
- Fresh map data: You get another map update for free (December 2014).
We hope that you will like the app’s new version and would be very glad, if you decided to leave a positive rating in the App Store.

A handy tool
I travel a lot with work and spend a lot of time on the road overseas, when I'm in the UK and data isn't an issue I use other maps but when your stuck somewhere and just need to get somewhere without spending a fortune in data charges this is a fantastic little app. It does sometimes take you on odd routes, the interface is a little clunky and I definitely recommend downloading the city maps for enhanced navigation but when your stuck somewhere unfamiliar with no signal and just need to get home this works just fine and is great value for money.
This is one of the best app ive used while on business with its offline facility make it brilliant.
Whilst the options are easy to use, this sadly does not utilise train facilities to the degree I needed but I'm sure Scout will eventually add this facility as it's inevitable. I can also think of a few addition that may come as add-ons as a natural progression.
For what this app does I can not really fault it as it got me where I wanted first time I'd give it 8.5/10 add my additions and it jumps to 10/10
Great app use it often
I bought tomtom app for iPhone for about £45 but it uses battery too quickly and takes too much space on my phone, this is great, it has got me to all manner of Sunday football grounds around sheffield with my son and we also use it successfully in Rural Normandy. It's all I need now. I've used it for years (used to be called Skobbler) and seen it improve regularly, i recommend it to friends always.
