Scout GPS Maps, Meetup & Chat

Scout GPS Maps, Meetup & Chat


Meet up without the hassle of using multiple apps to coordinate, communicate, and navigate. Now there’s an app for all that: Scout. It’s the only app that let’s you chat, make plans, and meet up in real life all in one super easy experience—including getting there with turn-by-turn GPS directions and everyone’s real-time ETA on the navigation map.

* New! Keep it in your circle — Scout is about getting together with you and the people you know – only those whose phone numbers are in your contacts list. People can only see the chats and meet ups they’re invited to and can leave the conversation with just a swipe.

* New! Smile for the camera — Snap a selfie for your Scout profile pic or pick your best shot from your existing photos.

* New! Know what’s coming up — See your upcoming meet ups on a map so you know where you need to be and when.

* Easy to use — Scout is now easier to navigate, starting with you on the map! In addition to traffic-based commute times, recent and favorite places, you can now also chat, meet up and more.

* Chat that leads to real plans — From spur-of-the-moment hangouts to a planned movie night, chat with friends about what to do and where to go, and then actually do it all in Scout.

* Meet up hassle-free – One app for everything. Choose who meet up with, pick a day and time, select a location, and you’re set. You can even chat before and after your get-together with all invitees in the same meet up stream.

* Drive together — Everyone meeting up gets voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to the destination and sees each other’s ETA on the navigation map while driving there, so you’ll know if ‘”five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet!”

* 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. Your use of Scout will automatically help OSM map quality.

* Beat traffic everywhere you go – Get the fastest routes based on real-time traffic and be routed around accidents and jams. Help others on the road by reporting traffic incidents, congestion, police, and construction hazards.

* Save money and time on parking - Scout’s arrival guide shows you the nearest and cheapest parking closest to your destination

* Get help when you need it – customer support is available online at ourcommunity.scout.me

User reviews of Scout GPS Maps, Meetup & Chat
I used to support this app completely, but since they removed one of the most important functions in their last update and refuse to readd it, (the ability to rename addresses you add), I can't give it a thumbs up or a completely positive review anymore. I stay at Version 2.0.1.0124 because it's the last one that has that functionality. I mean seriously, are any of you going to be able to remember every address you add only by the address? It doesn't make sense to me to take out a vital feature like that. Other than that, and no longer being able to update it on account of their refusal to readd it, I still use it as my only form of navigation. It still is the best nav app I've used, across not only multiple android devices, but my old Sanyo M1 as well. If you guys fix your mistake in judgment on removing a staple feature, I'll definitely give it a thumbs up again.

I Don't Know What This App Does This app doesn't make sense to me. I can't figure out what it does. It's not a GPS. The screens are not helpful at all. It used to have restaurants, gas stations and such, but not now. It seems useless to me. I'm probably going to delete it.
