You will not incur any data roaming charges to use this tour, even if you are from outside the USA. Works Off-line and with Data Roaming turned off. Professional tour guides have filled the guide with interesting and entertaining stories about how this amazing road was constructed, loads of tips and advice on what to do and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 105 commentary points along the drive. It’s just like driving around with a local expert. Just download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks may block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network. This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you travel. **** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad (WiFi + Cellular - whether you have a network connection or not) will work just fine. ++++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We strongly recommend taking a cigarette lighter style car charger and continuously charging as you drive.

  • Great Info!

    Loaded and played with before trip, day of trip paired phone with vehicle, got to park...didn't work! No worries...turned off Blue Tooth and phone was plenty loud enough for two to listen to even with a LifeProof case on. Great info. Great app for a reasonable price (and I'm a cheapskate!) Been to the park several times before but it's been a while. There were several awesome places we would not have stopped if we had not been listening! The history lessons were wonderful! And there were a few we stopped that were pretty cool that the audio didn't tell us about. All in all a great trip and a great app. I will def be checking into more of your apps specifically the Yellowstone & Tetons app and The Big Island apps! Any chance you could get a Kauai app ready before early Dec.? Thanks! Things that would make me rate this app higher: 1. Add narration for the Many Glaciers Road 2. Maybe add that The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado is the hotel that actually inspired the book The Shining, that The Ahwahnee Lodge in Yosemite Ntl Park inspired the sets for the interior for the movie production and that Timberline Lodge is the lodge on "side of Mt. Hood" used for exterior shots during the filming. Sorry, nit picky I know, but I'm a history buff. 3. More trail info (round trip or one way distance, altitude gained, difficulty, bathrooms on trail, etc.) A BIG kudos to you for the ones you did point out.

    Going to the Sun Road is our 7th Gypsy app and we've loved each one. Besides letting us know where to stop and what to see, the guide, who after all our adventures feels like a friend, provides a comprehensive understanding of the history and geography of the area. Can't wait to see where he'll take us next!
  • OMG: spectacular!

    We loved this app. It gave us so much more information than we would ever have known. We drive the road two round trips and listened all the time because we picked up things we missed. I felt sorry for the others passing us by because they didn't know to stop. Love this app!
  • A fantastic companion to a beautiful drive.

    Made the drive come alive. Well narrated, with interesting stories about the park and road. And technically, the gps integration was excellent. I only wish they had more areas.
  • Great app highly recommend
