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. ++ Continued use of GPS running in the background increases battery usage - we strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. This is much better than simply plugging into the USB port in a vehicle. ** 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.

    This app was like having a tour guide in our car. It had a short discussion of the highlights and some history of the Yellowstone. The feature we liked best was that it told us which locations to stop at and explore and it gave us directions on how to get there and where to park. Loved it!! I highly recommend it and plan on trying their other guides.

    This was like having your own private guide ride with you in your car through the parks. A lot of history and information which was extremely interesting and kept our attention throughout our drives. Informed us of little side roads that were quiet without the crowds with some awesome views. Highly recommend gypsy guide. It is well worth it and can't wait to use them again for other national parks. Thank you

    I was sweating the thought of trying to piece together various maps, both paper and electronic, to try and guide us through our drive from Jackson, WY up through Grand Teton National Park and around the Lower Loop of Yellowstone before we exited the Yellowstone West Entrance. I was downloading Gaia Maps and making a list of landmarks that I had read about and was trying to get them in order so I wouldn't miss any. Then right before I left the hotel room I went on the App Store and searched on Yellowstone Maps. I came across the GyPSy products and saw there was one for both Grand Teton and Yellowstone. It was under $10 so I decided to go for it. I didn't have wifi where I was and it wouldn't let me download the file (about 150 MB) over my cellular connection so we drove to the local Starbucks in Jackson and used their wifi. No problem. It took a couple of minutes to download and we were off and running. The map only allows you to view the area you are currently in. In other words, you cannot scroll around to zoom in on other areas (at least I couldn't figure out how). You can zoom in and out but it always stays centered around your current location. As you start driving, the GPS in your phone or iPad (I used my iPad) follows along the route. Every so often (and it is often), you come across a point on the map where the guy starts talking. We thought he sounded a little like Casey Kasem! He would give a tour guide's description of the local area. You get interesting tidbits about geology, animal history, etc. as well as the proximity to the next viewable landmark as well as "turn here" instructions. Since there are several times during the tour where you could go left or right at a junction, the voice tells you what happens when you do either. We were amazed at how accurate the tour was. He always talks at the right time and we always knew what to do, where to go and what we were looking at. I would buy this again in a heartbeat if I go to another place where they offer their product. It was outstanding.

    This app was such a pleasure on our recent trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. "Gypsy Jim", as we affectionately called him, was so full of helpful information and helped us to plan our days. Bravo!! Well worth the price. We would definitely purchase another guide by Gypsy if it is available for our next adventure location!
  • Fabulous travel companion

    This was money worth spent. Pleasant voice with so much information - we would have missed so much info if we'd just driven by. The scenery doesn't want one to take the eyes off to read anything, so the commentary was perfect

    We loved listening to Parker! Ok, so we gave the narrator of this awesome guide name. Using this app felt like having such a good friend lead our family of 4 through these beautiful parks that we thought he deserved a name :-) Parker gave us just the right balance of history, science, local lore, and, of course, suggested routes and stops. We look forward to exploring other national parks with Parker!
  • Absolute MUST for Yellowstone and Grand Teton

    Got the recommendation from an email we received about Yellowstone. Worth way more than we paid for it. We saw sites we never would have known about, and learned lots along the way. Next NP we visit, our first action will be to see if Gypsy has an app for it.
  • Fantastic

    You just have to take this app along with you when visiting Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. It's like having your own park ranger in the car with you as you go from place to place. The content is absolutely spot on and interesting and fun at the same time. The narrator is nameless, but we ended up calling him ranger Bob. We used a small Bluetooth speaker to enhance the experience. Just fantastic!
