Scout - the only app that lets you chat, plan Meet Ups with friends and get turn-by-turn GPS voice directions. Now you can navigate, coordinate and communicate without the hassle of multiple apps. Find the best route with real time traffic and commute alerts. Customize your directions with a swipe of a finger. Keep in touch on the go with voice chat and messaging. Instantly share your location, route and ETA with the friends you choose from your contact list. Create a Meet Up to send to friends and get ETAs for all attendees on the map before the event. Make a pit stop on your route and find the cheapest gas, restaurants and other local amenities all while avoiding police speed traps and traffic jams along the way.
New! Quick shortcuts – Click on the shortcuts menu from the home screen and check drive times and navigate instantly to home and work. Easily share your ETA with others for those routes.
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, so you can find the right friends to share with while on the go.
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.
Customize your route – With our slick new one-swipe design, you can modify a section of the turn-by-turn directions to keep you moving.
Always be on time - Get alerts to know when traffic is slower than usual on your 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, choose your time and location and invite your friends. Attendees will get alerts for when to leave to get there on time.
Say hello on the go – Send one-touch voice chat or text messages to your group. Only those invited to the Meet Up will be able to communicate together.
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 lost or late and whether “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet.”
Do it your way – Customize your Scout route preferences, map views and set up personalized commute alerts for home and work.
Make a pit stop – Discover new places along your route for the cheapest gas, restaurants for a bite to eat or other amenities.
