Share ETA – Pick your route and share your ETA easily with one or more contacts in a single tap. Scout suggests your most frequently used contacts to share with while on the road.

Say hello with Voice Chat – Send one-touch voice chat or text messages to your Meet Up group. Only those invited will be able to send and receive messages.

Navigate easily – Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel with turn-by-turn voice guided GPS directions.

Beat traffic – Real time traffic and live speed updates help you find the best and quickest route to avoid gridlock.

Always be on time – Receive notifications when traffic is slower than usual on your daily commute home or to work. Get reminders one hour before your Meet Up event is set to begin and as your guests arrive.

Connect with others – Create a Meet Up, let your friends or family member knows when you are going to be there.

Get live ETAs – Scout shows when Meet Up attendees are on the move with real-time ETAs on the map. Now you’ll always know when a friend is late and whether “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet.”

Bluetooth has never worked for iOS

ReconMarine911

I would give this app 5 stars if they could ever get the Bluetooth audio to work while driving. I got this function to work once for a few minutes years ago when I use to own the iPhone 4s but never worked for my iPhone 5s nor my 128g 6s iPhone. I love using my BlueParrott headsets while driving, they are the best Bluetooth headsets on the market and this is THE only app it doesn't work on.
I find this flaw with Scout to be very dangerous while driving. Scout is by far the best navigational app out there but I'm only left with Google maps because their Bluetooth audio has always worked except google can't pronounce Hawaiian street names and Scout can very effectively. I would love to one day only need Scout for my navigational needs. Bluetooth audio seems to be a common complaint in your reviews, I hope you finally address this issue sometime this year or the next...

We hear you! Please update to latest Scout and try Bluetooth again. Hope you love it and send feedback to scout@telenav.com.

Disappointment

DugbuddTX

Going into a Toyota Tacoma, which I love, and dealing with the Scout GPS is pain. Sometimes the gps App I the truck allows me to search for addresses (when it is connected to my app on my iPhone), sometimes it doesn’t. It didn’t earlier today until I was almost to my destination. No traffic. I finally entered the address, and although my destination was about a half mile ahead on the right, straight road without traffic, it was directing me to turn left at the next light. Makes no sense.

Update: You gave the option to choose highways, car pool lanes, and avoid tolls. If you turn highways ton"green" it's actually avoiding highways. I don't know why the word "avoid" is left out on the highways option. I'll raise my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars.

Good Navigator

Lyn Deb

When I first joined Scout, we really loved how clean and precise it was in getting us from point A to point B. It was also dependable. Not so much lately. We used to be able to put in an address and have it pop up right away. Now it seems like we have to struggle at times by pulling over to the side of the ride or driving aimlessly before it registers. It seems like these simple problems occurred as Scout started adding more to its program. We really would like to see Scout go back to simplifying and working more on making their program better in getting us back to going from place A to B than inviting friends and all the other extras. Our priority is to stick in an address, have it come up within the next 5 seconds with the all round best route - nothing more.
