Great improvements since 2018

When I first leased my Toyota RAV 4 this app was useless. I stayed with google maps on my phones screen. I was using LG 6 platinum phone. I recently started using iPhone 11 with maps. I had a pop up to download this app. I went along with it. To my pleasant surprise, it connected with my car’s Scout GPS & gave me a good experience. On the car screen I am now able to navigate with live traffic guidance & route choice. I will revisit here as I use more. I do not drive much during the pandemic.

Unable to pair

I use Bluetooth audio in my vehicle constantly so I know that the iphone is indeed paired but scout gps link claims that there is no pairing. Have unpaired and paired again several times but scout is still unhappy. Update: Telnav customer support has informed me that this app is incompatible with my Lexus and that is apparently why I had difficulty pairing.

Scout GPS hasn’t worked since ios14 update

I didn’t have much of a complaint with scout gps till my phone updated to ios14. Once that update was done, all I get in scout gps is failed to connect to their server. I have no problems using Apple Maps or google maps from safari, so I know there is no connection problem with my phone. I also agree with other reviewers that it should auto connect the phone app to the car and be ready to take a destination address and not have to resort to 1st gen approval actions to connect. Even YouTube auto connects to play audio.

I’m having difficulty getting used to the turn by turn directions without the map. One reason is at times the spoken direction is late and I miss the turn. In order to combat this I also have my phone with google maps on and lower the volume. I have no other complaint or suggestions

Not good at all

I just bought a 2017 sienna, when I saw the app I was, cool, gps included Used it twice and gave up Turn by turn instructions and a map that its useless for me, I see other users with a nice map. Mine is upside down, too small, and it shows me that Im going south instead of north even though Im going west. Didnt find any settings to fix that. So Ill stick with my phone apps since I have to use my phone anyways. Reminds me of my nissan gps, it would block me from using it while driving, not knowing it my passenger was looking for a place to eat on a road trip we took

Navigating the App

Getting better. Would like to not have to get my phone out to activate the Scout App every time. Make it work like my iPhone where the connection is automatic when I get into the car. FYI, I’m an older retired guy.
