App Description

Just Like Having A Tour Guide In Your Car™ on the Road to Hana. Plays commentary AUTOMATICALLY as you drive and works OFFLINE (no data or cell required). Don't miss out on the best sights on this tour of Maui's most famous drive - The Road to Hana. * Prepared by Professional Tour Guides * 140+ commentary points * Fraction of cost of bus tours, guide books or CDs Turn your iPhone or iPad (wireless + cellular models only) into a Tour Guide and take your driving tours and sightseeing to a whole new level with the GyPSy Guide – GPS Tour of The Road to Hana. Commentary plays AUTOMATICALLY as you drive so you don't miss any of the best sights and stories along the way. 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. Let GyPSy be your guide as it helps you work out the best places for you to visit by giving you helpful information so you can make good decisions and make the most of the time you have available. ** This app works OFF-LINE while you are touring. There is no need to have a network or wireless connection while you are driving. Once downloaded, this tour REQUIRES NO DATA to operate and activate, so you won’t incur roaming or data charges. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A CELLULAR NETWORK CONNECTION TO TOUR!! 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, loads of tips and advice on what to do and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 146 commentary points as we drive to Hana and then on to the National Park at Kipahulu. It’s just like driving around with a local expert. Note that this tour does not have commentary on the "back side" of Haleakala. We do not provide commentary this way because most rental car companies do not allow their rentals cars to be taken on this route. So we provide all new commentary for the drive back from Hana to the Kahului Airport area. Just download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home, your resort 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 will 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 car charger.

    Excellent resource for this adventure! We really appreciated ALL the insider knowledge, as well as the opinions as to what could be passed by for better options up ahead. There's so much we would have completely missed without this app. It was also a huge help with our time management, as we didn't start until about 10 a.m.
  • Best tourist guide!

    The combination of Gps and a very informative, entertaining and knowledgeable virtual guide makes this app a must have. You almost feel like a real local guide is traveling with you.We hope they will add national and international destinations.

    This was recommended by a Maui local who has taken many visitors to Hana over the years. The commentary is great and the narrator really tells you which places are worth a stop. The GPS is spot on which makes using it effortless. My only complaint is that it stops and doesn't continue if you go all the way around.
  • Survival kit!! Must have!!

    Road to Hana could be so confusing and overwhelming but so worth the experience. Need a map? Directions? Guidance? And a personal tour guide that is so incredibly accurate it will amaze you?! This is the app to get! Totally worth it! Oh and NO service? NO problem! You don't need it! We had NO service the entire time and it worked perfectly. Once the app loads you're good to go. We just made sure we purchased and downloaded while we had wifi.

    Pros GPS activated guide was awesome and very accurate. Great information about the things coming up on your drive Offline mode in cases where you lose phone service Narrator sounded a bit like papa bear from the BearnStein Bears. Cons After you stop it sometimes takes the narrator a bit to come on. We didn't miss anything but you wonder if it's still working as you drive down the road. Note if you stop at the Garden of Eden you could definitely skip the next stop.
  • Superb app!

    This is just for the road to Hana portion of the app as the app offers several tours. We chose to drive ourselves so we could go at our own pace and it was great to have. There's no cell phone signal pretty much when you start the tour so it helped so much to track where we were. It gave us plenty of warnings of when we should stop and detailed the parking situation prior to all stops. It suggests places to see by should stops and must stops, and we were not disappointed. I totally recommend it for $5....beats paying what they charge in a tour group.
