Navigate easily – Keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel with turn-by-turn voice guided GPS directions.
Beat traffic – Real time traffic and live speed updates help you find the best and quickest route to avoid gridlock.
Always be on time – Receive notifications when traffic is slower than usual on your daily commute home or to work. Get reminders one hour before your Meet Up event is set to begin and as your guests arrive.
Connect with others – Create a Meet Up, let your friends or family member knows when you are going to be there.
Get live ETAs – Scout shows when Meet Up attendees are on the move with real-time ETAs on the map. Now you’ll always know when a friend is late and whether “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet.”
