Hundreds of Places
I have used this app 1000 times to navigate in my car. Sadly, iOS updates and age have made the battery life insufficient on the 5s iPhone. I came to expect that you would have created an iPad. Now I just use Maps with gps driving instructions, but it would be nice to see Scout again. Won't somebody consider creating a version of this app for cellular iPads?
Used to be better
I have used this app to get me from Kentucky to California, all over the place, and back. I worked, well enough. I say it used to be better because it was more fun. I used to be able to pick from an icon like a spaceship or the minivan... I miss that actually. Having used it to cross country I only have one note: when someone calls you on the road and asks you where you are, there is no way of knowing what town you are in. There should be a bubble or something that tells you: "you are currently in_________." That would have been very handy.
I wrote the above review over 3 years ago. Since then I have not used any other app to get me from A to B. Sometimes it will not fine me a route because when I download this I lived in Hawaii, then Tennessee, now Nevada... every now and again it tells me that something a few miles away is 34 hours away and that there isn’t a route to be had, as though it thinks my starting point is still in Tennessee, or Hawaii. There is also a few random places that it will take me the longest way possible. BUT it’s never taken me to the wrong place, just taken a long time to get there.
HUGE disappointment after years of use!
Years ago I got the paid GPS app and loved it.. then the updates started rolling in to turn a simple perfect GPS platform into a mobile social networking platform. Now your prompted to give your phone number with promises of privacy but also told that the information is shared as well as your location . Also your given a warning not to use while driving but then the entire platform is to use with a friend while in vehicles driving... can't wait to see when the lawsuits start coming in on that one! Also now they want you to sign up and pay monthly fees for social media while driving and not sue them for it. Scout... I and many others as you can see in the reviews just wanted a simple, clean working GPS without having to buy another device to stick in the vehicle nothing more, nothing less. I had even PAID for the app to get the GPS service... now you want me to pay for services I don't want, don't need, and won't use even though I paid for the GPS service already???!!! That's just DIRTY business! I have already PAID for the GPS part of this app so I should get what I PAID FOR!!!
