Mar 29, 2013, 10:08 AM by Eric M. Zeman
TeleNav today provided an update to its Scout navigation app for the iPhone. Among the several new features added is the ability to sync Scout with the native iPhone calendar. The device owner can then go straight from calendar appointments to voice-guided navigation to the appointment from their current location. Scout also adds a feature called OnMyWay, which can be used to automatically send messages to family/friends with an estimated time of arrival when the user is navigating. The updated version of Scout also has a new dashboard for in-app navigation and more free car icons. Scout for iPhone is free to download and use.
