Telenav Inc. today introduced an update to Scout in the Apple App Store that includes Always There Navigation — downloadable offline navigation that provides GPS navigation service at all times, even when the user does not have wireless coverage.
Ryan Drake Scout Project Manager at Telenav, explains this update:
“When you are driving in an unfamiliar area, the last thing you want to worry about is losing your GPS navigation if you drive out of wireless coverage and take a wrong turn. With our latest version, we are ensuring that this will no longer be a concern for our users. Scout will guide you anywhere, anytime — with or without wireless coverage.”
Scout’s Always There Navigation is now available for download by U.S. region: Western, Central, or Eastern. The updated Scout for iPhone is available in the Apple App Store today.
Users can subscribe to a year of offline navigation for $10 or $3 per month and the subscription offers additional premium features such as voice navigation. Additionally Telenav offers a free 30-day trial for new customers and speech recognition is available free to all users as part of the free version of Scout for iPhone.
