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 free 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.
- More than 1.5 million contributors make the OpenStreetMap one of the most detailed and dynamic digital maps, that is brought closer to perfection every day.


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 free 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.

Excellent potential, really fantastic very detailed map. Just to find out your current position on a long walk through, for example a large labyrinth like vineyard, excellent. It shows every little tractor path and shows exactly current position. But if you want it to tell you how to get home from there, you'd better work it out for yourself using the map. It's helpful but plenty of room for improvement. I find interacting with the dashboard disappointing.

i have used it for many years and most of the time is quite good, sometimes it gets confused and you can go round and round and never take you to your destination but it is rare, at least in Europe. however lately it has been crashing a lot, almost to the point of not using it anymore, a shame... otherwise it has many features, offline maps for walkers are good. for cycling off road there is better ones, but overall recommed it IF IT STOPPED CRASHING...

The App is good for the money spent on it. The customer service is brilliant. I used to travel a lot and many of the new roads in Germany and France are not included in the maps. I personally think that the navigation is little bit slow when comes to turn few times in a short time. It also keep crashing when I try to find a route from address in Germany to address in France. Despite this small setbacks I highly recommend the App.
