Mixed feelings... Nice software, responsive and intuitive. Graphics can be made cleaner and easier to the eye. Still needs search improvents to be made. However asking for street, city or number is a bit limited. Not all addresses are defined by this format. If the developers embed free address search it would be great. I still have not seen an open maps software to be good at finding a hoise in a certain neighbourhood where there are no street names bit just house numbers. HERE maps does this perfectly.
Great for use abroad The offline maps are great for use when abroad to avoid roaming fees. Pricing is good for Europe (£3.99) but probably not for Oceania which is the same price. Routing is fully offline unlike Google maps and is worth the extra money. Maps are often large in size (France is 1gb) and there is no option to download parts of countries which have been purchased.
the cursor not as pointer ! so annoy the cursor as circle. you will don't know which way you facing at. the pointer cursor mandatory to know which direction where you at, when you without any route to put - especially as pedestrian or by bicycle. i know there is free mode and you have the pointer, but that unusefull because important place like building or other interest not showed. far better gmaps. think more if you want to buy the full maps like me. tought my data usage will reduce because this can offline, but then back to gmaps.
Great No update for over a year! What's going on!? I love this app, I use it for all my navigation needs. One thing though... I wish that it would let me download the maps where I want. Yes, I know that you can choose this from settings, but my car's head unit has about 4 external SD/USB slots and those do not appear in the settings. Please fix this
Great app I've been looking for an offline sat nav app for my android phone. Does exactly what I want the app to do. Gives clear routes. Good at providing directions when on foot. However wifi is required initially to download the maps and wasn't straightforward when searching for locations. I then realised that when searching, ignore where it says "city" if you are just looking for a point of interest, ie. Nearby station.
Android 6.0 and small internal storage This was a good product until my Galaxy J5 was updated from Droid 5.x to 6.0. The J5 has only 8GB internal storage and usually has 1GB or less free space. With 5.x it was possible to load all the maps onto the external SD card leaving space for other Apps on internal storage. Since Doid 6.0 Scout no longer supports this. I can no longer use Scout. Lost the money spent on maps :-( Telenav support have confirmed this. Moving to a new product that fully supports storing the maps on External storage.
Today you receive Scout's new version. It contains the following enhancements:
- Bug fixes
We hope that you will like the app’s new version and would be very glad, if you decided to leave a positive rating in the Play Store.
