Chat with your buddies
Scoutmaster, Scouts and their parents can chat with each other using free texting with no additional cost.
Scoutmaster or his delegate can create trips from anywhere to anywhere with origin, stops and destination by providing address or simply tapping on the map. The entire trip including all stops and destination as well the map can be pre-loaded on the mobile device prior to the trip. This feature saves on the data plan and the battery life of the device. If for any reason during the trip, cell coverage is lost, GeoScout will store all the data on the device itself until the signal is available next and will continue.
Developed specifically for scouts going on a hiking or a camping trip, they and their parents can keep track of their belongings such as tents, clothes and sleeping bag. My Checklist serves as a reminder as well as an aid to the patrol leader in deciding who will bring what, and remember to bring them back!
Your virtual buddy
Scouting has always had a time honored ‘buddy system’ as a safety measure while camping or hiking. GeoScout is your virtual buddy. This patent pending feature ensures that the scout is where he is supposed to be and yet, does not interfere with his scouting.
Another patent pending feature of GeoScout is SOS! Button. This allows a scout to immediately summon help from his buddies or patrol leaders with just two taps. All pre-selected persons get notified on their selected devices.
The scout’s location can be seen live on the map through any mobile device in case of emergency
GeoScout Rewards Program provides a way for troop members to earn cash rewards for their troop. Scouts can earn these rewards on an ongoing basis simply by having their buddies and families get the GeoScout app. Also a great way to recruit more scouts to their troops.

A mobile app made for scout parents by scout parents
We are LBS Systems, a start up founded and nurtured by the parents of an Eagle Scout in Arizona. GeoScout™ by LBS Systems was born from many weekends of preparing and going to hiking and camping with our son all the way from a webelos to an Eagle..
LBS Systems develops and publishes highly advanced location based apps for mobile devices. The backbone of these apps is a platform called GRiDLiiNK™. Think of it as Google Maps, Foursquare, Facebook and Groupon on steroids. Many years in the making, GRiDLiiNK makes possible many functionalities possible and dreamed by today’s children who are growing up on smartphones and facebook as their constant companions.
While we as parents strive to pull our children away from TV and computers, GeoScout makes for a fun, adventurous, educational and exploration oriented experience by letting scouts use the smartphone in the field while being immersed in their immediate outdoor environment.
Stay tuned as LBS Systems brings out more and more exciting rewards based games that educate as well. Please provide feedback as well as ideas to improve the scouting experience on the GeoScout web site.
