MAPS (online/offline)

Scout makes use of the so called Open Street Map. This worldwide map shows major information for streets, paths and towns. Via touch screen it is easy to move and zoom the digital map.

In addition you can download detailed topographic maps in our Map Store with scale 1:50.000. These maps are perfect for activities in the outback, because they show even small field paths. You get everything digital, handy and low priced. These special maps can be used on all devices connected with your iTunes Account


You can choose which information you see in six defined fields. While on tour you get reliable information on:

Actual speed
Average speed
Maximum speed
Pace (minute / km)
Number of recorded points
Coverage of total distance
Overall time
Actual altitude
Lowest and highest points
Display of GPS signal
GPS accuracy
Heart rate (in combination with a Bluetooth Smart device)

For low-current usage during recording you are able to switch to standy-modus (top right button at your iPhone)


You will find all recorded tour data easily in an overview: course of your tour, altitude difference and date of recording

Lenght of tours
Travel time
Average pace
Lowest and highest points
Personal rating (landscape, condition, technique, experience)

You like to have a closer look on your tour later at the PC? You want to exchange your tours with friends? Not a problem at all: you can send your recorded tours via email as common gpx file.


Here you find all settings for your Scout iPhone app, like downloads of topographic, detailed maps (Wi-Fi connection recommended) to be independent from an online connection later when in nature. Likewise you can define a favored measure (metric or US) or the setting how you record tours (optimized, time and distance interval). The Online-Help gives you an easy introduction to all functions.

Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
