No Longer Desirable UPDATE 2014: this "update" sucks!!! Scout once had a very functional interface, not anymore. Plus the designers got rid of "recents"... for why? I 100% regret hitting the "update" button because this once 5 star app is barely even 1 star now. Why reinvent the wheel when it was fine in the first place? OLD REVIEW: Easy to use trustworthy and reliable and has always gotten me where I need to go.
Ease of Use I prefer Scout over Google maps & Yahoo maps. I've used this to get across the country several times and Scout took me straight to the front door. The only thing I don't like is the directional verbage. Please say left or right instead of West or East...etc.
Reduced rating I had to reduce my rating. I've been using Scout for several years now, and it great til now. Recently it has not been able to keep up with me driving, and I miss my turn. Also has different names for streets as well as taking me off the highway just to put me back on. Please update asap. I would hate to uninstall.
8+ yrs use, now can't find *&!%# Favorites HARD2 FIND NOW... WTH? MENU top right GONE? shortcuts menu takes screen space from MAP n should have favorites inside? Why cannot delete useless shortcut? LAST 2 updates TERRIBLE.
I would love to give this a 5 star but for the fact it cant keep up with me when im driving makes me upset. When i first downloaded it, it was on point. The best app i had. Now i hesitate using it
Improvements makes it worse I have used Scout for several years, the app was very helpful. However, the upgrades have made this a very confusing app. Can't figure out how to follow anymore.
