I loved the original app. I hate that it's no longer possible to ZOOM IN or change the rotation. And the type size is so small it is essentially unusable on my phone. It's painfully obvious that this is a port from a tablet-size gps system. I am going to be forced to switch apps, because I can't SEE and it's become unsafe to use while driving. Pretty much the opposite of the needed experience

Please provide option to revert to old UI. Have used scout since it was Telenav on Nextel. App is currently unusable. Can't see text. Colors are awful, low contrast. Volume is too low. Map scale is wrong. Missing 2d view. Last trip missed three turns resulting in extra hour of travel. No more night mode -- screen is blindingly bright. Google maps sucks, but better now than scout. Have missed multiple turns resulting in hours added to trip multiple trips. Please revert to old UI.

Very basic & info does not appear to be updated. Although certain roads are open with no delays, the app seems to think the road does not go through the whole way, so has me making turns to avoid one small section of the road, & get back onto it about 1/2 mile further down! When I could just go straight thru. Also, doesn't give me much of a heads up on delays coming up.
