GPS Navigation & Maps - Scout
by: Telenav GmbH (formerly skobbler GmbH) • 54.8K
There are a lot of map apps that make use of the GPS on our phones and that, like Google Maps (the most renowned map app), let us find places, work out routes, and guide us to our destination with voice instructions. Although there are loads of valid alternatives, GPS Navigation & Maps from Scout seems to be one of the soundest. It stands out in that it offers a wide range of maps without connection, as well as useful GPS navigation.
To start with, it's important to note that this is app is completely free. The maps it displays can be downloaded separately, without needing to pay a cent. This is probably the greatest benefit, but there's more. We love it because it works without an internet connection (just download the maps of the places you want first via a WiFi connection), and because it has up-to-date information about road traffic and other news in real time. We also like it because it works as a GPS navigator, and that you only need your mobile to hand in order to set a route and receive voice instructions as you go.
If you want to widen the information that the maps display (even though we don't see any reason why you'd need to), you'll need to buy some small extension packs. Luckily, they don't cost much.

In the following, you’ll find more detailed information on some of those points:
OFFLINE MAPS BASED ON OPENSTREETMAP
- In addition to the already included free country map, your app can optionally be enhanced with favorably priced map packages for offline usage (at a bargain price).
- Save storage space and install only those maps you currently need. That’s how the app can easily be customized to suit your needs.
- More than 1.5 million contributors make the OpenStreetMap one of the most detailed and dynamic digital maps, that is brought closer to perfection every day.
NAVIGATION WITH TRAFFIC INFORMATION AND SPEED CAM WARNING
- Let yourself be navigated to your destination. Precise and clearly understandable voice instruction will show you the way.
- Choose from three alternative routes and go for the best way.
- The already included traffic information feature keeps you updated on the current traffic situation. Avoid being caught up in traffic jams and make a detour round construction sites.
- International INRIX Traffic: This optional upgrade provides you with superior traffic intelligence by international market leader INRIX. It will greatly enhance routing during turn-by-turn navigation and displays additional color-coded information on the current traffic situation.
- Our free speed cam warning feature alerts you when approaching fixed speed cameras while in free drive or navigation mode and prevents you from getting speeding tickets.
Please note that the continuous use of the GPS will cause the battery to discharge more quickly. That’s why we recommend to leave your device connected to the charging cable during the entire trip.
