Direct routes

My husband uses a different system and Scout is constantly direct routes where his occasionally takes him either to the wrong location or out of the way routes. I don’t prefer the recent change Scout made visually and the only thing I don’t like is having to click on 3 questions before being able to start, especially when I need directions quickly.

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!!!

Bluetooth has never worked for iOS

I would give this app 5 stars if they could ever get the Bluetooth audio to work while driving. I got this function to work once for a few minutes years ago when I use to own the iPhone 4s but never worked for my iPhone 5s nor my 128g 6s iPhone. I love using my BlueParrott headsets while driving, they are the best Bluetooth headsets on the market and this is THE only app it doesn't work on.
I find this flaw with Scout to be very dangerous while driving. Scout is by far the best navigational app out there but I'm only left with Google maps because their Bluetooth audio has always worked except google can't pronounce Hawaiian street names and Scout can very effectively. I would love to one day only need Scout for my navigational needs. Bluetooth audio seems to be a common complaint in your reviews, I hope you finally address this issue sometime this year or the next...

We hear you! Please update to latest Scout and try Bluetooth again. Hope you love it and send feedback to
