App Description

Gettysburg Driving Tour now has over 1.5 hours of audio so that you can hear stories and music at each of the 16 stops as well as on the drive to and from each stop. Drive through Gettysburg and into history with Gettysburg Tours. Watch live action battle scenes that help you imagine real events on Gettysburg’s open fields. Gettysburg Tours isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. If you do not allow the app to track your location, the app will show your location as the last location your app was at and the GPS triggers will not work automatically. At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can: -GPS triggered audio that plays automatically as you drive -Watch battle videos specific to your location -View custom maps -See historically accurate and realistic paintings -Get directions to the next stop You can zip through the park quickly by pausing at a limited number of key stops, or spend more time and experience all 16. It’s fun, flexible, and easy to use. The audio in the app will trigger and play as you drive by historic battle fields. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

  • Excellent

    This app was so fun! It was our first time in Gettysburg and we wanted to see the major sights without having to take a tour bus. This app gave a ton of info - more than the free brochure from the park, and we found the music really set the mood. We felt like we were on a luxury private tour in our own car. The GPS worked perfectly and automatically played the appropriate audio track as we approached each site. I wish there were more apps like this for other destinations. Well worth the $10.
  • Worst app I've used

    Would not recommend this to anyone! Half the stops don't work, not worth using if it was free! Keep searching!

    This app should have been priced at $1.99. You will get more information from the free brochure at the visitor center. This app only has limited information about 16 of the sites and neglects most of the major ones. The only reason it may be worth $1.99 Is for the sometimes useful GPS application for those unfamiliar with the battleground.
  • Love the experience

    I loved the audio commentary in this tour. The audio played automatically and the whole family got a guided tour of Gettysburg. Awesome!

    Audio tracks don't work. It goes to short YouTube videos instead of audio tracks and those aren't great given spotty cellphone coverage in the area. Also, there is no GPS triggering. Rip-off
  • Complete waste of money

    The "content" of this app is so weak, the free brochure from the visitor's center was more informative. There was less than 20 minutes of audio content and some of it was inaccurate. Any one of the CDs sets in the visitor's center would be at least an hour and more like 2+ since they had multiple discs.
  • Best Content!

    I loved this do-it-at your own pace, drive and explore tour of the battlefield. The GPS triggers were great and there was so much more added value in the extra content at each stop. The videos brought the battle to life and the pictures and audio added interesting historical information. I highly recommend this for families and explorers of all ages.
  • Ok for basic info

    I've tried a lot of apps for Gettysburg and this one is by far the most entertaining and interesting. Most of the other apps are just boring information but the videos in this app really bring the battle to life!
