App Description

GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of the Road to Hana is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip on Maui’s most famous drive. There are 140+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself. TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE ROAD TO HANA If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience while remaining totally independent. By driving yourself, you'll be able to get from place to place faster, see more things and not be tied to anyone else's schedule. DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST SIGHTS AND STORIES The tour apps use your device’s location abilities to play the commentary AUTOMATICALLY. No cell network signal is needed while driving. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at (and those you might decide to skip). Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour for the Road to Hana on Maui. We’ll recommend the best places to experience along the way and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. There’s so much to see and do, GyPSy will help you prioritize what suits you best and make sure you don’t miss a thing. PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY GyPSy Guide knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays commentary automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips and advice. EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide. GREAT VALUE The same information you would get on a bus tour or from a guide book, for just a fraction of the price. And you control the itinerary and schedule. WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTE This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more: 1) Ho'okipa Beach Park 2) Ke'anae 3) Wai'anapanapa Park 4) Hana 5) Hamoa Beach 6) Wailua Falls 7) Seven Sacred Pools at Kipahulu plus many more great scenic stops. We recommend giving yourself a full day to drive the Road to Hana and start as early as you can. The tour is structured so that we concentrate on sightseeing as we drive towards Hana. Most people want to drive back without stopping, so we have all different commentary and stories for the drive back that will entertain you and pass the time more quickly. Beware of suggestions that recommend going “the back way”. You are most likely going to be in a rental car. All the major rental car companies prohibit their cars being taken on the “back side” of Haleakala. NOTES 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. ++ 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. ABOUT US GyPSy Guide™ produce award winning audio tours along scenic drives around the world. Enjoyed by travelers who prefer to set their own pace and itinerary on vacation, but enjoy a fun, informative and educational guided experience.

  • Really good

    We enjoyed the narration on our way to Hana. The timing worked great and having done the road many times, we felt it had good recommendations. The only slight imperfection is the way the narrator pronounced a couple words, including “lava” (like lava-tory). It gives away that he doesn’t really live on Maui. And the caves at Waianapapa are now closed, so that should be updated at some point. But anyway, the app was great, informative, and enjoyable. Very highly recommended.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this app while driving the road to Hana. We experienced things we would have missed if we hadn't used it. It recommended going past Hana and into the National Park. We were tired but it kept telling us it is not to be missed so we pushed on and it was the highlight of our trip. On the trip back when you are tired and happy it gives a history lesson of Hawaii which inspired me to learn more and read James Michener's "Hawaii". I would love to do another tour with this app.
  • Make the trip even better

    This was our first trip to Maui so I did a lot of research and everything I read said this app was a must have. We were not disappointment. We loved all the tips and suggestions we also really like the commentary on the way back. Our only complaint is that we wish we could re-listen to the commentary at the end it is very informative and interesting
  • Amazingly Helpful!

    This was our first trip to Hawaii and first time ever touring something on our own. I read travel blogs ahead of time and they said to download apps for the drive. I picked this one and my husband and I could not believe how awesome it was! We would have been so lost without it. Plus, with very little service, the app still works and even uses the real time GPS. It let us know in plenty of time when there was going to be a turn or a stop. So great!
  • Great app. Works without service.

    This app was well worth the money. Instead of spending tons of time trying to follow mile markers and notes from blogs or travel guides, this app gives you precise instructions when and where to stop -- even if you don't have service (don't ask how) -- allowing you to enjoy the scenery around you. Developer: you may want to verify some of the narration in a couple of spots (koki beach and hamoa beach). You say west Maui when I think you mean east :-). Didn't impact the journey at all, but did make me laugh!

    Great app guided us all the way and prioritized all of the sights. We would have missed a lot if we didn't have this app.
  • OMG - This made the drive!

    I couldn't imagine driving the 10 hour journey without the "voice". Excellent and very informative. I would pair this purchase with the Hawaiian Luau Party - 50 Tropical Songs to play in the background while you drive.
  • Perfect for first timers or second timers.

    This app is awesome! My friend and I used it and it worked perfectly! It does use a lot of battery so keep it plugged in and you'll be fine. We're looking forward to going on the other tours as well. There were many places we would've missed if not for this app. Love the five suggested places to definitely see. The bit of history on the ride back was great and the humor had us laughing. Thanks for this great adventure!
