Overall great, but
I have loved this companies navigation system since TeleNav. I have continuously recommended using it above Waze and other Navigation systems to friends and family. However, one of my favorite things about their system was the fantastic easy to use home screen. It had large buttons with my home, work, and favorites that I could safely maneuver while driving (because I didn't have to look away from the road to use the options). Most of the Apps features have stayed the same, but now I have tiny little icons that keep moving for home and away which I have to pull over to operate safely. I know you are trying to keep your app looking new, but maybe put in an option to toggle the home screen between a driving mode with safe easy buttons and your normal home screen. Most of the app is wonderful (love the ETA share), however, you lost a star specifically for a change that made you less unique and much more similar in appearance to other Navigation Apps and took away from safety at the same time.
Clearest and most functional GPS
Of all the navigation Apps out there, Scout continues to be one of the cleanest and clearest. The recent update has made it more visually appealing and easy to understand. When looking up a new address, Scout comes up with the most accurate results much faster than other apps and the suggested routes provided are almost always the best routes. I would recommend Scout to anyone who enjoys a solid and reliable navigation experience.
One suggestion, give more sound options like volume level for navigation voice and give option to mute voice when driving to and from work. Thanks!
Offline price is only issue
This is a great maps app with lots of features. But there's one massive problem...
They charge $25 every year for offline access. Seriously?
Garmin, TomTom, etc all offer offline maps for a one time fee.
Right now most of them are even on sale, so you can download all of the USA offline maps for a one time fee of $25-$35.
So for almost the same price as one year of Scout, you can have a lifetime of the other offline maps. After just a few years Scout would cost you three times more!
Plus, the Scout offline maps take up about twice as much memory. To download all of the US maps would take up 3.8GB, but Garmin, TomTom, etc only take up 1.5-2GB.
