Looking to help put you in the Holiday spirit, TeleNav released an update to their turn-by-turn navigation GPS app Scout. With the new update, you can now choose your vehicle icon to be a Santa’s Hat, an Elf Cap, Rudy the Reindeer (Rudolph) and a New Year’s topper.

On the non-holiday side, this update also includes the following enhancements:

  • Adaptive Routing – Scout looks out for timesaving options as you drive, automatically shows you if a better route is available, and helps you reroute around incidents and hazards.
  • Traffic Speed Indicators – See live traffic speeds on a map and along your route, so you know exactly what to expect when you hit the road
  • Improved One-Box – Now gives you more intelligent suggestions to help you find what matters faster

Scout has become my favorite GPS-Navigation apps to use, especially to avoid traffic. Throughout the year, it became the #1 download GPS-Navigation app in the Apple App Store and stays in the top of the charts week to week.

The new Holiday icons are also available on Scout for Android. Below is a quick video of them action.

If you are just hearing about Scout, you can download it for free for iPhone or Android.
