Scout – the app that connects people together for live events, not just to find places! Meet Up without the hassle of using multiple apps to coordinate, communicate, and navigate. It’s the only app that lets you chat, make plans, and Meet Up with turn-by-turn GPS directions and everyone’s real-time ETA on the navigation map. Now you’ll always know if “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet!”
* Keep it in your circle — Verify your phone number so you can connect and invite the right friends to Meet Ups via your contact list. Only friends invited to your Meet Up can see chats and live ETAs for other attendees.
* New! Keep in touch and drive together – Get notified when your friends start driving to the Meet Up and see everyone’s ETAs and location on the map at the same time. Let your friends know you are on the way before you drive.
* New! Chat within your Meet Up – Create a Meet Up, share with friends and chat with attendees all in the same event thread. Attendees can leave the conversation with just a swipe.
* New! Explore new places – Find restaurants, coffee, ATMs, cheap gas stations and more nearby spots when searching for your target destination. Locate cheap parking closest to your destination.
* New! Meet Up reminders – Never worry about forgetting about your Meet Up with a new and improved interface. Scout will remind you within one hour of your Meet Up, so you can always get there on
* Smile for the camera – Snap a selfie for your Scout profile pic or pick your best shot from your existing photos.
* Beat traffic everywhere you go – Get the fastest routes based on real-time traffic and get routed around accidents and jams. Help others on the road by reporting traffic incidents, speed traps, congestion, police, and construction hazards.
* Never get lost with the most up-to-date maps – OpenStreetMap (OSM) powers Scout’s maps with a community of more than 1.6 million editors making regular updates to the map.

Best GPS app
After using this app once I was hooked. Scout shows me live traffic at all times that is accurate. I set up meet ups with my daughter to pick her up from school and she gets to see me live where I'm at and if I'm going to be on time or running late due to traffic. I get reports on traffic conditions according to my work schedule and I get to use best route to get to work avoiding traffic jams. I get to save my favorite places to eat, get gas and etc. My friends and I also get to text on this app when planning getting together therefore everyone is always on time!
Class action lawsuit???
It's totally ridiculous that you can't correct your name on your account when it's been entered incorrectly. They have no idea how to reset your data with them. They have no idea how to allow a user to edit a profile. They don't even have a way to delete your profile. They'll just hold on to your info, correct or otherwise, and share it within their ToS as they wish. If the name they have for me shows up on my credit report as an alias, I'm getting a lawyer and putting them out of business!
Promise but still lacking
No other options besides Bluetooth over A2DP profile. Waze, Apple, Google, etc all allow voice over the Handsfree profile. Also quite a few random quits with this version. Like the meetup fiction tremendously but add a couple standard features please.
Update: This nav app is still riddled with crashes after the .1 update.
