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.

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.

I used to love Scout, but their last few updates kept making the app progressively worse. The voice navigation is much quieter, the directions don’t all make sense as there are extra streets listed at the start of my route than actually exist, and perhaps most importantly: all my saved routes lost their label names in the update. What’s worse is that there is no way for me to change the label names again, so I just have a long list of addresses, most of which I don’t know what they match to.
