What Scout lets you do, is focus on what really matters - the people at the end of the journey. Let them know when you're on the way, and that you've arrived safely, without fumbling around with an app or text message. Pick up the kids when they're done with the movie. Have your friend or spouse come and get you from the mall after you've got that special present safely hidden. Drive to a friend even when they move around. We've got you covered.
