Get Scout on your device and find out yourself, why the app has been sold millions of times (as “skobbler”) and has been one of the highest-rated map solutions for years.
In the following, you’ll find more detailed information on some of those points:
OFFLINE MAPS BASED ON OPENSTREETMAP
- In addition to the already included country map, your app can optionally be enhanced with favorably priced map packages for offline usage (at a bargain price).
- Save storage space and install only those maps you currently need. That’s how the app can easily be customized to suit your needs.
- You get continuous map updates. Free of charge, of course.
- More than 3 million contributors make the OpenStreetMap one of the most detailed and dynamic digital maps, that is brought closer to perfection every day.
- The new feedback feature enables you to provide manual feedback directly from the main menu, whereas audio reporting allows you to notify us of any map bugs while in active navigation.
NAVIGATION WITH TRAFFIC INFORMATION AND SPEED CAM WARNING
- Let yourself be navigated to your destination. Precise and clearly understandable voice instruction will show you the way.
- Choose from three alternative routes and go for the best way.
- The already included traffic information feature keeps you updated on the current traffic situation. Avoid being caught up in traffic jams and make a detour round construction sites.
- International INRIX Traffic: This optional upgrade provides you with superior traffic intelligence by international market leader INRIX. It will greatly enhance routing during turn-by-turn navigation and displays additional color-coded information on the current traffic situation.
- Our included speed cam warning feature alerts you when approaching fixed speed cameras while in free drive or navigation mode and prevents you from getting speeding tickets.
Please note that the continuous use of the GPS will cause the battery to discharge more quickly. That’s why we recommend to leave your device connected to the charging cable during the entire trip.
Ratings and Reviews
Hard to fault for the price. Once you've saved some favourite destinations and downloaded maps so it works offline, and got used to the strangely laid out preferences, it's very reliable and won't let you down when out of range of mobile data networks. But you do have to spend time learning to use it properly as it's not very intuitive- don't expect your passenger to be able to use it while you're driving - sure recipe for arguments! Sometimes it will cling to a route even when you are going more directly, and try to get you to backtrack unnecessarily, but in the main it's fine. I often run it in parallel with google maps and switch to whichever is behaving better at the time. What I desperately need though are waypoints that I can put in manually to have more control over the route.
I've had this App for a couple of years and always thought it was great for the price but the constant improvements now put it on par with mainstream sat navs, yet still a fraction of the price. The format takes a bit of getting used to but once you've mastered it you won't want to be without it by your side on all your travels. Being able to download separate areas as and when needed saves on phone memory but gives you the option to use off line which I have recently found most helpful whilst driving in the Arctic Circle where there is no signal and even the roads are difficult to see so accurate tracking was imperative. It's also a great tool whilst walking, whether being out in the wilderness or in a busy city.
Amazed that I could navigate around the US for free. It took me straight to wherever I needed to go. It was very clear and even reminded to ‘watch your speed’ if necessary which was useful on unfamiliar roads
Some small improvements- you seemed to need WiFi to create a route. So if we went out and changed our mind as to where we wanted to go, we could not do this without connecting to WiFi. Luckily you could access ‘recent destinations’ though. It does also drain a lot of battery so it is only good for long journeys where you can charge while driving. Also once or twice it cut out- this was fine as I was a passenger and could just re route but would have been a huge problem if I was driving alone.
