Scout’s maps and discovery features get you what you need with instant speed, from voice-guided directions and traffic to nearby restaurants, cheap gas, and more!
✔ My Dashboard – Think of this home screen as your go-to, daily toolbar where you can view a map of your current location, commute times to your work or home address based on traffic and current weather, and find any nearby place like restaurants, gas, coffee, and ATMs or any recent destination with just a tap or simple voice command.
✔ Voice Turn-by-Turn Directions – Pick your route and get turn-by-turn directions on the latest maps with award-winning Telenav® GPS navigation with voice guidance. Control your route settings with just a tap and avoid tolls or highways.
✔ My Traffic – View real-time traffic flows and ETAs to your destination. See traffic flows on a map so you can take the guesswork out of knowing where you’ll run into congestion.
✔OnMyWay®: Share your ETA to let others know when you’ll arrive at your destination.
✔ Nearby Places – Use one-tap search and discovery to quickly view coffee, restaurants and the cheapest gas stations nearby, with Yelp and TripAdvisor community reviews. Whether it’s a familiar community in your hometown or travel to a new destination, get the detail on the best place to grab a bite or store to shop at while you’re in transit.
✔ Web Sync – Release your inner explorer and discover things to do on www.scout.me, including live music, family fun, activities for the outdoor enthusiast and cool local events in the community. Log in to sync your favorites between the site and the Scout application.
✔ My Places – Save every recent favorite discovery and access it on the Scout Android application or online at scout.me
✔ Voice Commands – Speak, don’t type, to view a map or directions to a street address or saved place and navigate there hands free while keeping your eyes on the road to avoid accidents, hazards and being stopped by the police.
✔ Fresh Maps – Say goodbye to your map quest – your search for mapping apps ends here; Scout’s maps are always updated and provide you with both 2-D and 3-D view options during navigation.
✔ Car Connect – Stop fumbling between your phone, radio, and headset, and instead use Bluetooth® to connect to Scout in your car with Ford SYNC® AppLink™. View turn-by-turn directions on your car’s infotainment system and hear the voice guidance over the car speakers (in-app purchase required for Car Connect).
