Works good but could be better glitchy voices correctly but screen shows wrong St sometimes, I navigated from work to a st called Forbes Blvd got me there but said I was getting off highway on my work st 30miles away. Wish you could report & receive issues in the road ahead like Waze/Google maps such as road closures,pot holes, debri police etc like to have that! be nice to have access to my phone contacts that have addresss saved in them to easily pick from them to navigate like MapQuest app.

Pros: Simple, easy to use interface that can easily be configured to show as much or as little information as you'd like. Great for folks like me with ADHD. Also, it's accurate and has a nice looking interface. Cons: Could use a hazard reporting feature like Waze. However, the major issue keeping me from 5 stars is that I can't type to search for a destination in Android Auto when using Scout. I can in Google Maps, Waze, or Here WeGo. Also don't like it hiding the Android notification bar.

Great start. I like the design and function of the map. Works well and easy to use. The daytime view is a little washed out looking and could use bolder secondary roads and names. Does not show closed roads. Speed display doesn't always show and the map seems to take a while to settle after making a turn. Gas prices are not up to date and should be updated daily at least. Would like to see crowd reporting built in.
