Scout GPS Maps, Meetup & Chat

Scout GPS Maps, Meetup & Chat


“I’m just five minutes away!” Heard that before? Whether it’s that friend who’s always late, who’s always lost, or who needs to lighten up with the “where are you??” texts, we all have that friend. Now there’s a cure for the common meetup quirk: 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! Brand new look—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.

• New! 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.

• New! 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 meetup stream.

• New! 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!”

• New! Safe and secure, it’s about who you know – Always online or anti-social media, Android or iPhone, include anyone you want. People can only see the chats and meetups they’re invited to and can leave the conversation with just a swipe.

• 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.

• Handle pits stops faster than a NASCAR crew – When you need to stop on the way, Scout finds gas stations by price, restaurants, coffee shops, and even popular chains up ahead, only along your route.

• 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

• Join our community – Keep up with Scout at www.facebook.com/scoutbytelenav, @scout on Twitter, and @scoutbytelenav on Instagram

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.

Pretty good They removed the ability to reroute the trip when traffic alerts pop up, or top reroute mid trip for any other reason. Very annoying, and I've downgraded them to 2 stars because of this. Overall very accurate and stable. Could use a few features, such as changing route type while in a trip. The interface is a bit awkward and done features are difficult to find, especially if upgrading from their Telenav app.

Low rating for VAN emblem....wtf, its GPS!!! Google Maps has insane permissions. Including access to protected storage. Once I rooted before it was allowed google maps had maybe 3 permissions. Now, after using XDA's toolbox, I was mind blown that Google Maps now has access to literally everything. As if they own your device, not you. They update, but I found there updates are only permissions. Shady shady SHADY. You guys are soooo not shady with insane permissions :) Uninstalled googles garbage. There name means nothing anymore but folk trust em :(

GP-NO! This app has gotten worse with its last update. It keeps taking me to the wrong locations, and screen does not allow you to confirm whether or not you are at the correct destination. :-[
