Telenav Adds Voice Commands and Offline Maps to Scout Navigation iPhone App 

Telenav has updated its Scout navigation app for the iPhone adding Voice Commands, offline maps and more features that places this free app as another navigational option for the iPhone.

With Voice Commands you can speak while navigating, instead of typing, and with the offline maps you can download a region in case you go through places that you can loose cell coverage. 

Other features included in the app:

  • Dashboard – Get traffic, weather and commute drive times on one easy screen
  • Turn-by-Turn Directions – Pick your route and get visual directions on the latest maps with award-winning Telenav® GPS navigation 
  • Traffic – See real-time traffic and ETAs 
  • Places – Use one-tap search to quickly find coffee, restaurants and the cheapest gas stations nearby 
  • Favorites – Save your faves and sync them online at, where you’ll discover events, activities, and fun things to do such as concerts and shows, hiking trails, parks and family fun 

The offline maps and voice GPS navigation comes as part of the "Plus" in-app purchase of $2.99 a month/$9.99 a year. This in-app purchase also comes with: 

  • Traffic rerouting – Avoid traffic jams with automatic rerouting and traffic flow and speed pace views
  • Speed Traps & Red Light Cameras – Avoid tickets and drive safer with red light camera and police speed trap alerts 
  • Lane Assist – Never miss an exit with easy-to-follow guidance on the correct lane to be in
