If you’re like me, when you’re on the road, and people call you and ask you how far away you are, your ETA calculations tend to be a bit off. Scout GPS Navigation & Meet Up doubles as a chatting device and a voice-guided navigation application so you always know how far you are from your destination all in one app. Scout GPS Navigation also lets you plan your route ahead of time, giving you the option to modify your routes, so if you know that shortcut to save a few minutes, you can add it rather easily.
Scout GPS Navigation & Meet Up features voice chat, so you’re not stuck having to type which driving. The latest update brings automatic “I’ll be there in 10 mins” messaging . It also features a clean, minimalist UI that looks and runs well.
Despite using the open-source and absolutely free OpenStreetMap platform, and unlike the ever-popular Google Maps, downloading offline maps costs extra. Adding shortcuts is a hassle and should be much easier.
