Telenav's Scout App Switches to OpenStreetMaps

Telenav today announced that its Scout mobile mapping application will use OpenStreetMaps data moving forward. OpenStreetMaps is crowd-sourced and updated constantly with changes to roads, streets, and avenues in near-real time by 1.6 million contributors. Telenav said Scout for iOS will see OpenStreetMaps integration by the end of the week. Users won't need to perform an app update, the app will simply pull map data from OpenStreetMaps rather than its traditional map source. The Android version of Scout will be updated to OpenStreetMaps by June. To make this possible, Telenav has rebranded the skobbler GPS navigation application (which was the first to make use of OpenStreetMaps data) and integrated it into Scout. Telenav purchased skobbler earlier this year. Scout is free and offers navigation features as well as local points-of-interest search. It is often pre-loaded on Sprint smartphones. Telenav also released a new SDK for Scout Maps, which will let developers to integrate OpenStreetMaps and navigation features into their own applications.
