New: Scout - the only app that lets you chat, make plans, and meetup with turn-by-turn GPS directions and everyone’s real-time ETA on the map. Now you’ll always know if “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet!” Scout connects people together for live events, not just to find places! Meetup without the hassle of using multiple apps to coordinate, communicate and navigate.
* New! Slick visual design for turn-by-turn directions, locating nearby amenities and creating instant Meet Ups.
* New! Non-Scout users invited to your Meet Up will receive an SMS with full event details and info on how to download and use Scout.
* Keep it in your circle — Verify your phone number to connect and invite the right friends from your contact list. Only friends invited to your Meet Up can view chats and live ETAs.
* Know when to leave — Get notified when friends start driving to your Meet Up and view their ETAs and real time progress on the map. Let your friends know you are on the way before you drive.
*Chat about it — Create a Meet Up to share details and chat with attendees all in the same event thread. You'll never miss a chat with push notifications for new messages and you can leave the conversation with just a swipe.
* Explore more — Find nearby restaurants, ATMs, cheap gas and parking along the way to your destination.
* Meet Up reminders— Scout will remind you an hour before your Meet Up, so you can always get to the right place at the right time.
* Say cheese— Snap a selfie for your Scout profile or pick your favorite shot from your existing photos.
* Beat traffic— Get the fastest routes based on real-time traffic to navigate around accidents and other traffic delays. Help others on the road by reporting accidents, speed traps, congestion, police, and construction.
* 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.
