Scout GPS, Maps, Voice Navigation & Traffic gets updated with a new hands-free voice command feature. "Hey Scout!" lets users search for locations while driving without the need to touch the screen. By simply saying "hey scout," users can then ask it to drive home (i.e. get directions home from their current location, not actually drive), find cheap gas, or find Starbucks. Users can even say the address of a location for it to find.

Finding the way around a new city is never any fun. Between not knowing where you are and where anything is, it is a recipe for disaster when it comes to having a night out on the town. But what if there were a personalize mapping app that did all of the legwork for you? The new app Scout from TeleNav does just that, and a whole lot more.
Imagine being lost in a dark part of town and wondering where you could find a nice quiet pub. That frost brew is only a few clicks away thanks to Scout, which will find all of the locations around you that might just fit the bill. Plus, if you liked the place and would like to return there in the future, just place a bookmark and you can find your way back at a later date. When combined with their stellar website, and upcoming integration with vehicles, this could very well be the navigation wave of the future. Climb aboard!
