“I’m just five minutes away!” Heard that before? Whether it’s that friend who’s always late, who’s always lost, or who needs to lighten up with the “where are you??” texts, we all have that friend. Now there’s a cure for the common meetup quirk: Scout. It’s the only app that let’s you chat, make plans, and meet up in real life all in one super easy experience—including getting there with turn-by-turn GPS directions and everyone’s real-time ETA on the navigation map.

•New! Brand new look—Scout is now easier to navigate, starting with you on the map! In addition to traffic-based commute times, recent and favorite places, you can now also chat, meet up and more.

•New! Chat that leads to real plans – From spur-of-the-moment hangouts to a planned movie night, chat with friends about what to do and where to go, and then actually do it all in Scout.

•New! Meet up hassle-free – One app for everything. Choose who meet up with, pick a day and time, select a location, and you’re set. You can even chat before and after your get-together with all invitees in the same meetup stream.

•New! Drive together — Everyone meeting up gets voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to the destination and sees each other’s ETA on the navigation map while driving there, so you’ll know if ‘”five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet!”

•New! Safe and secure, it’s about who you know – Always online or anti-social media, Android or iPhone, include anyone you want. People can only see the chats and meetups they’re invited to and can leave the conversation with just a swipe.

•Never get lost with the most up-to-date maps – OpenStreetMap (OSM) powers Scout’s maps with a community of more than 1.6 million editors making regular updates to the map. Your use of Scout will automatically help OSM map quality.

•Beat traffic everywhere you go – Get the fastest routes based on real-time traffic and be routed around accidents and jams. Help others on the road by reporting traffic incidents, congestion, police, and construction hazards.

•Handle pits stops faster than a NASCAR crew – When you need to stop on the way, Scout finds gas stations by price, restaurants, coffee shops, and even popular chains up ahead, only along your route.

•Save money and time on parking - Scout’s arrival guide shows you the nearest and cheapest parking closest to your destination

•Get help when you need it – customer support is available online at ourcommunity.scout.me

•Join our community – Keep up with Scout at www.facebook.com/scoutbytelenav, @scout on Twitter, and @scoutbytelenav on Instagram

    Yep, the latest update takes out lane assist, among other features that made Scout a bit more useful than Google Maps navigation. I'm canceling my subscription.

    I liked the distance option before that allowed you to look at your liked places and sort by distance from your current location.

    It needs pictures or avatars for our image in profile and indicator on map when navigating to get 5 stars

    One of the better ones that I've used. It would be even better if I could be able to change the starting point of the trip in case I want to give directions to someone that is located in another place. I used to be able to do this in TeleNav, but I don't see an option for this in this app.
