Scenic 3 info
A new version of Scenic, Scenic 3, is currently in development. Scenic 3 is aimed for summer 2021.
What’s the difference with current Scenic 2?
Scenic 3 will feature new maps and a better routing algorithm, a refreshed look and feel, improvements to organizing of routes, rides and locations, improvements to navigation and later on in the year new functionalities will be added, amongst others, CarPlay support. Here are some sneak peek screenshots
When will it be ready?
It’s aimed for summer 2021. I won’t name any specific dates yet, but I will keep updating Scenic 2 where necessary of course. This will mostly entail smaller requests and bug fixes, as bigger items will be shifted to Scenic 3.
Will my routes, rides, locations stay like they are?
Yes. You keep your data. Nothing needs to be migrated or converted. The only moment when you’d want to double check something is when you want to navigate a route in Scenic 3, that was created with Scenic 2. Because of the different routing algorithm between the versions it’s theoretically possible that Scenic 3 takes different roads between two via points. In practice this will be rare though.
What happens to my purchases?
You keep them. You will keep all you purchases, including all offline map regions you purchased in the past, although you might need to download a new version of them. If anything, you’ll get more for the premium package, not less.
Will the free features remain free?
Yes, with one exception: Currently, in Scenic 2, on-screen (not voice) turn-by-turn instructions are free. In Scenic 3 these will only be available to Premium users. Non-premium users will get ‘follow-the-line’ guidance only (i.e. line is drawn on map to visually follow).
How will I know when it’s ready?
