App Reviews

  • Horrible!

    By RudyGMontoya
    As much as I love Toyota's this could be a deal breaker on buying another car from the same brand without navigaton.. I have a 2018 Toyota Camry SE and this navigation app it's definitely worthless. You have to manually connect everything in order to get it working , also your phone has to be ON all the time. You can't browse the web or do anything on your phone because the signal on the vehicle touchscreen will disappeared and will just give you directions instead of showing the actual map and the movement of the vehicle. ( You have to be on the app screen in order for the app to send the signal to your vehicle screen ) With that being said , you need your phone to be on all the time with a screen saying " enjoy your driving " while burning the battery in your phone. honestly don't even bother on using navigation through this app. I use Waze or Google maps on my phone! Avoid the hassle and don't download this because it's worthless.
  • Worst I’ve used

    By Preskit Compadre
    My ten year old Garmin works better than this. Connecting to this came with my 2018 Tundra. I thought it would be great to have a GPS sort of built in but it proved to be worthless. Most of the time that I’ve tried to enter an address it wouldn’t find it. When it did find an address the directions it gave were visually like a first grader designed it. No map, basic green arrows and minimal information was given. My iPhone maps were accurate, would give me several notices before a turn. The last time I tried using the scout app it told me to turn when I was already at the turn. When you are towing a trailer you cannot make a split decision when making turns. I am quite surprised that Toyota would not have built a higher quality GPS into an expensive vehicle. Very disappointed, I will be using my old Garmin or my iPhone maps instead.
  • Terrible at most basic GPS functions

    By Dalty1
    I recently purchased a new Camry that uses Scout for GPS. First, when connecting to the car, it will show a moving map when the your phone is plugged in, using the app in the foreground, and with the screen on. It causes my phone to become very hot while driving and put it by the vents to prevent it from overheating. Second, the point of interest is not that great. It only knows what seems like the most basic of places. Lastly, the routes it tells you to take are truly terrible. I have had on almost every instance of using the app had routes that made no sense. One example would be when the app tried to tell me to get off of the freeway that goes straight to my destination to take a 10 mile detour on a toll road. I will be sticking to Google Maps and hoping for Toyota to update my car for CarPlay.
  • Latest release Even worse

    By Tiscoj
    Latest release makes you plug in with the sun cord so you “can experience the full moving map experience.” No option to go on with out. This whole app is dangerous imagine deciding to start the navy feature. Got to find your cord plug into your phone then into the USB port buried in the dash. If you haven’t driven off the road or hit someone head on consider yourself lucky. I know they never user tested this. They assume they know more about subject than we do. So your going down the road with GPS map working and your iPhone goes to sleep scout then loses connection and will only restart if you untether the phone. Very distracting and dangerous Also for the first five minutes it thought I was 30 miles from my actual location so directions were useless. I would rate 0 stats but that isn’t an option.
  • So far so good

    By Shizuoka Joe
    Bought a ‘18 Camry a few days ago. Program works well. One change the developers should look into; give option for user to turn phone screen off while still allowing full functionality via the in cabin infotainment sys. Basically, my iPhone X plus needs to be awake and the Scout App must be open and running in the foreground for true GPS navigation assistance. This on turn over heats the phone and puts unnecessary stress on screen and phone backlights. (Does that make sense?). Anyways, enjoy the product if you use it.
  • Much improved with the update but could still use some work

    By Tofer 86
    I’ve used this app with the navigation in my 2017 Tacoma for 1 1/2 years now, and I have to say, it’s improved. I like how the software within the head unit of my dash automatically updates (prompts for update inside truck) when there is a new update available. I also enjoy how the display has greatly improved with the new update. I do, however, have one small request: if I have the app open in my phone and start a trip, I would like to be able to turn on my truck and drive, without Scout asking me on my navigation within my truck to resume trip. All in all, I’ve been through the worst of what other users described with this app, and the sun seems to be shining brighter with this update. However, since Toyota only offers this app option, it’s not like we have much choice, either.
  • Toyota, you can do better

    By yrdaddy
    Just traded in my 2012 Prius V with built in Nav for a 2018 RAV4 Hybrid without built in Nav. Salesman says you don’t need built in Nav because you have Scout GPS thru my phone. I wish I hadn’t listened! Scout GPS is a major step backwards in the GPS software. Horrible keypad interface that lags and double enters address keystrokes. Horrible display of tiny map and directions that jump on the display. Phone and car often don’t connect. It sometimes takes 5-8 minutes just to get phone and car working together and destination address entered. I have been so unhappy that I run Google maps which is muted because of Bluetooth phone connection. Hey Toyota give me Apple CarPlay!!!!!!!!

    By yutzumkutzum
    While there has been improvement in your system, starting the system up after it has not been used is very slow and frustrating. Most people want to be able to enter their destination and have all the information come up within seconds. With your system it takes far far too long to get all the elements going. It is frustrating and for people who need to get somewhere quickly, needlessly time consuming.
  • Worst navigation system I’ve ever encountered

    By Jeannie's itouch
    I truly would NOT have purchased my Toyota if I had known this was the piece of junk they were backing as a great product. It takes forever if I try to type a name or place, It freezes, doesn’t respond, or thinks I am a new person every time I try to use it. I am so glad I kept my portable GPS because relying on this piece of junk can leave you stranded. says a lot about Toyota. Toyota blames the phone or the app but in the end Toyota is selling the product and my phone works for everything else. I buy my first Toyota and this is the crap I get? Won’t buy another one thanks to this app.
  • Worst GPS APP I’ve ever used

    By Jclowe55
    App has a severe lag between phone and connected vehicle. Using the screen on my ‘18 Camry is even a worse lag. It is inaccurate with directions. Has taken me to the wrong address more than once. Whenever a call comes in via bluetooth gps app closes. If the Scout app isn’t running on the main screen it doesn’t work. Lastly if you stop along the route and turn your car off (getting gas) the app does not give you the option to continue route, you have to reinput the original destination. This app will cause me not to buy another vehicle with the Scout GPS in it
