Scout - the only app that lets you chat, share your ETA 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 with voice chat and messaging. Instantly share your location, route and ETA with friends from your contact list. Create a Meet Up to coordinate with friends. Make a pit stop on your route and find the cheapest gas, restaurants and more - all while avoiding police speed traps and traffic jams.
New! Night mode – Scout will automatically toggle your map view to night mode when light is low to make your route more visible on high contrast maps.
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 commute alerts help you find the best and quickest route to avoid gridlock. Get alerts to know when traffic is slower than usual on your commute home or to work.
Personalize your route – Click on different route times to see turn-by-turn details before you start driving. Once you’re on the way, use our slick one-swipe design to re-route directions to keep you moving when you hit traffic.
Use shortcuts – Create shortcuts to check drive times to home and work, share your ETA and navigate instantly. Swipe left on the shortcuts menu to edit home and work addresses.
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 go.
Create Meet Ups – Choose your time, location and invite your friends. Attendees will get reminders for when to leave and you can get live ETAs to see where your attendees are en route.
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.
Make a pit stop – Explore and discover new places along your route for the cheapest gas, restaurants and other amenities.
Never get lost – Scout, powered by OpenStreetMap (OSM), provides the most up-to-date map information with updates from a community of more than 1.6 million editors. You can download offline maps for a fee to always know where you’re going when your signal is spotty.
