Now I realize that scan will point you to the nearest anomaly or mission objective in almost every case.
I though the game was stupid as it didn't have waypoint markers. I kept wandering around and around the map looking for the next objective. Then I found out about the scan function.

What I would prefer is that when scanning it brings markers up on your map.
