New Feature: Turn by Turn Navigation on ScoutMyTrip

Post by yayawar » Thu May 17, 2018 12:41 pm

Based on multiple feedback that we have been receiving, and also reading the analytics of more and more usage of ScoutMyTrip on mobile devices, I'm pleased to announce that we have added yet another feature on ScoutMyTrip - Turn by Turn Navigation, for all the trips planned on ScoutMyTrip.

Open any trip planned on ScoutMyTrip on mobile and hit the "Turn By Turn Navigation" button

It will invoke Google Maps with turn by turn navigation enabled.

Do remember to download the offline Map of the route and also create a shortcut to the route on your mobile home screen
Do click on "Steps & More" on the bottom of the route screen, scroll to the bottom and hit "Save Offline" to save the route.
Go back to the route screen, click on the three vertical dots on top right, and click on "Add Route to Home Screen"
The Shortcut to Route on Home Screen (top right icon)
It is a good idea always to download offline map area for the entire route, as it would help in continuous navigation even when data/mobile network availability is zero. Saving just the route as above may not always work, so better to be doubly sure. :)

Click on the three vertical lines (drawer icon) on top right to open the menu and Click on "Offline maps"
Pinch and zoom to select the area of your trip to fit in the blue rectangular box and click on "DOWNLOAD". If required, repeat this for more offline map areas to cover your entire trip.
Once through with everything, enjoy seamless turn by turn navigation like a pro! :)

P.S.: Will keep adding such features that help ease the road trips. :)
