App Description

Just Like Having A Tour Guide In Your Car™ for all of Maui, Hawaii. Plays commentary AUTOMATICALLY as you drive and works OFFLINE (no data or cell required). Don't miss out on the best sights with this tour that covers all our tour routes including Road to Hana, Haleakala, West Maui and Iao Valley. * Plays commentary AUTOMATICALLY as you drive * No Data or network connection required. Works off-line * Prepared by Professional Tour Guides * 450+ commentary points * Fraction of cost of bus tours, guide books or CDs Turn your iPhone or iPad (Wi-Fi + 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 Maui. Commentary plays AUTOMATICALLY as you drive so you don't miss any of the best places and stories as you explore the island. This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more: 1) The Road to Hana 2) Haleakala - the Volcano 3) West Maui including Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kapalua and Kahakuloa 4) Kihei, Wailea and Makena 5) Iao Valley 6) and all the routes that connect these amazing places, 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. 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 456 commentary points as we drive tall over Maui. 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. 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. GyPSy Guides are Hawaii's favorite drive touring apps. ++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life - we strongly recommend taking a car charger. iPad users - If your iPad is wireless-only model - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function - WiFi-only models do not contain GPS hardware. Any iPhone will activate just fine. For automatic commentary activation on an iPad, your model must be a "Wi-Fi + Cellular" model - though connection to a network is not required.

  • Another great Gypsy Tour - my 3rd

    It's no wonder that the Gypsy Tour apps have consistent 5 star ratings. They are fantastic! I saw an ad in a travel magazine for the Yellowstone guide the day before we were to enter Yellowstone. It was only $5 so I took a chance on it. Were we ever thrilled with it. Not once did we have to stop for information or visit a welcome center. Everything we needed to know the app provided. It was the best $5 that we spent on that vacation. This year I bought the full Maui and O'ahu guides. Once again, we could not have been more pleased with the apps. It was like having a tour guide in the front seat telling us where to go, what to be sure and see, what to skip, tour and travel options, best places to find food (esp on the Road to Hana) and very interesting history and background info about the islands. It guided us to Hana, telling us about every stop before we got to them and then on to the national park and the 7 Sacred Pools of Ohe'o. It also warns you not to go further in a rental car and explains why. Unfortunately, it poured the entire drive up so we were forced to skip some attractions. Its roadside food advice was spot on. The next day we used the app to travel to the top of Haleakala then back down. (Be sure to schedule a zip line tour on the way back. It's at about the 4,000' level. Outstanding!). It gave us options to tour Malawao and Pukalani, including a history on them, or just continue past them. We would not have seen those towns were it not for the app. We followed it to tour the NW shore of Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua. Again, lots of history was provided as we drove. If you plan to self tour the islands, get this app. You will love it. It does not use any of your data minutes or require an internet connection. It's so cool when you are driving silently along and then your hear "just up ahead..." from the app. It will even congratulate you about the optional choices you make.

    Can't say enough about this app, some of the drives in Maui can be long , interesting, and honestly treacherous. This app is easy to use and the absolute best money you can spend in Maui. The guide is extremely informative, not over bearing, funny, and keeps you safe as well. He is pleasant to listen to and the app puts the experience before the technology! Well done creators. I don't review a lot of apps, but use a lot of apps in general...this one is well worthy of a review and I'm glad to provide!

    Enjoyed a lot of the information. Wish you could move the map around and hear descriptions of places you might like to visit before you got there. Personally, I would have liked a lot more history. Missed any info on Up Country.
  • Worth the money ten times over!

    This app was the best recommendation we received before going to Maui! We would not have explored as much as we did without the app. We also probably would have done a guided Road to Hana tour, which would have cost ten times more than this app! We named the guide "Jerry"...we loved that Jerry told us both sites to see and Hawaiian history. I don't think we would have gotten as much cultural perspective on guided bus tours. This app is a must!

    First of all I will rate this Gypsy Guide a 10, excellent and best purchase for the price. The Narrator was excellent, very helpful audio guide. Gave us historical data, warned us of upcoming turns, fantastic trip to Hana giving us options of points of interest, giving us choice as to what we wanted to stop and see. Enjoyed our daily trips to Kihei, Lahaina and Haleakala, learned a lot about the islands we visited, and will look forward to other trips hoping we can download the appropriate app for our trips. We travel often and would enjoy having this guide along..

  • This is a "must have"

    The "tour guide" is excellent. The information changes depending upon your direction so on the same road, you get two narratives. Good driving directions and plenty of advance warning for turns. The only tour we didn't do was the road to Hana. All the ones we did were 5 stars. Highly recommend.
  • Absolutely FANTASTIC

    Completely engaging, helpful, accurate and entertaining! Loved loved loved this app! Made the Road to Hana and all other paths around Maui shine. We would have missed SOOOOO much just driving. Best travel investment I've ever made.
  • Well worth the $10

    My wife saw this app advertised in a flyer. Since we have done the road to Hana at least seven or eight times I was very hesitant to spend $10 on an app when I knew the route already. But after a little bit of discussion I decided to spend the $10 and give it a try. The app provided great directions and all the highlights you would need or expect. And on the return trip they told you a great summary of the history of Hawaii. All in all you can't go wrong with this $10 investment. I will try this app again on another tour sometime.
