Scout Adds Free Voice-Guided Navigation
If you still haven’t found an alternate to Apple Maps, you might want to check out Scout by TeleNav. Starting today the free version for iPhone users has voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation for both driving and walking directions. Previously this required a paid subscription.
