Default Scout GPS Link not working with NX 2018 F Sport

Anyone know why is the scout GPS link is not working with the NX 2018? Like the Lexus app suite 2.0 doesn't even have that option at all. Is it cause I have the build in navigation already? Even the car's app list has no Scout GPS either. Thanks if anyone knows what is up!

Iím sure itís because you already have the Nav Package. My 2019 with Nav doesnít have Scout.

You have to install Scout GPS app on your phone. Its not in Lexus app suite. Also you have to install it on a dash. There is an option to add/remove apps. Maybe it was removed? You can install it back.

ross777 is correct, Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0 works with both NX's with and without Nav to add the phones
knowledge to the car. NX's without Nav display the Scout GPS Link including Moving Maps if you use a USB cable.
NX's with Nav use the phone to enhance voice recognition and use the Native Maps already coming from the car,
no need for Scout.

Really? That is good to know. The reason why I want to try scout GPS, since I like to put in address in phone and sync to the screen instead type in the address. Since sometimes I was in hurry. Thanks

I actually have the app on phone, and just the dash won;t allow to install the scout GPS. I tried to add and it just not there. Other people said it is just not there for the one with nav

That makes sense with why there is no way for me to add Scout GPS in the dash. and nothing shows up too. I will keep using the GPS came with the car. I was just looking for a solution I can type in the address and then sync to the car rather than I use the touchpad to input the address in case I am in hurry. Thanks

You can try using voice or save them as favorites.
