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.

Thanks for using Scout.

Great Satnav app, but........
App works real well. Unlike some other reviews, it does search by postcode and did find a shop address I tried. Great to see clear map and directions, along with current speed as measured by GPS and time and distance to destination. Timely speed cam warnings too on audio. Visually shows speed limit of the road you're on (most of the time). Great to have UK map downloaded to avoid use of mobile data. Way better than standard iPhone Maps app, which quite often fails to find address required (including Home address sometimes). Only drawback is the speed at which it drains the iPhone battery. Even when hooked up to a charger it drains the battery - WHY? But for a free app, it's hard to fault.
Better and better...
I started using this app quite a few years ago, it was buggy and unreliable. Over the years though it has gone through a metamorphosis into a five star package.
I have the downloaded maps of the UK which saves on data but also the reliability as it doesn't need have a great connection to to the internet all the time.
Directions are cleanly laid out and the voice is much clearer and far less robotic than Google maps. I haven't tried out any of the premium SatNav apps but seriously can't see what possible extras or features they could offer that this app doesn't have.
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.
