Introduction to Scout® GPS Link

Scout® GPS Link is a new navigation application that displays turn-by-turn navigation guidance on the touch-screen display of your Entune Audio Plus system. You will also receive audio guidance prompts. You can use your vehicle’s touch-screen display or the push-to-talk button on your steering wheel to find destinations and set them into guidance on Scout® GPS Link (requires a paired, Internet-connected phone and the Scout® GPS Link Application, which is available from the Apple® App StoreSM and Google Play app store).

Your phone must be paired and connected to use Scout® GPS Link. If it is not, please go to Pair a Phone. You will also need to set up Scout® GPS Link in your vehicle. If you have not already set up Scout® GPS Link in your vehicle, select the Getting Started tab from Scout® GPS Link Support to get directions.

Note: "Press" refers to a physical button on your phone or the multimedia system faceplate. "Touch" refers to a button, command or menu drawn on the display touch-screen.
