What's New in Version 3.2.1
Resolved a bug which was causing the map to disappear and deviation during active navigation.
The app no longer provides alternative routes so I am going to get rid of it
The one thing that I really liked about the Scout app is that it used to provide 3 different routes to choose from whenever you typed in a location and it no longer does that. In the Los Angeles area this is CRITICAL. In addition, it does not provide any heads up about traffic jams which is also ESSENTIAL for an app such as this. I was planning on purchasing the paid app however due to the absence of these very important features, which are basically the entire reason for purchasing these types of apps, I am going to delete it from my phone. In addition, it drains the battery on I Phone 6 plus excessively. It is very difficult to find a good mapping application, for some reason the developers just don't get it or maybe we need a developer who lives in LA to create one since we are traffic congestion capital of the world.
Great navigation tool
I use this everyday as I'm a truck driver. Have used this for a long time now. The main bad thing is I do a lot of night driving and after one of the last few updates this app lost the ability to have a night time mode so I usually have to turn off the screen most of the time at night as the white screen is too bright at night even if I dim my phone down. Wish they could bring this night time feature back.
Nice cheap GPS
We use for almost everything when we are going places we don't know. Shared it with others as well. Would like to see more routes included as far as short cuts when getting lost.
Draw back is sometimes it cannot find you and you have to wait for it. Besides that it's a nice app and so far we trust it.
