Description

Just Like Having A Tour Guide In Your Car™ for all of Maui, Hawaii. GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of Maui is an excellent way to explore the entire island. There are 450+ 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 AROUND MAUI If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience to places like the Road to Hana, 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. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at. Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour of Maui. We’ll recommend the best places to experience and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. 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 The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. There is at least 3-4 days of sightseeing available to enjoy. This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more: 1) The Road to Hana 2) Haleakala - the Volcano Reservations are required to visit for sunrise. 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, 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. Our goal is to provide a great introduction to the region and perhaps inspire you to learn more and return. None of our apps include paid advertising or placements for benefit.

    I bought this primarily for the road to Hana but thought an added perk would be for having it all the way for Maui. If your looking for only five stops to Hana this is your guide. If you want to know what all to actually look for this is for sure not your guide.
  • Great app for Maui visitors

    My wife and I have been to Maui several times and we always load up this app when driving. Very useful for finding where to stop and visit. The commentary is nicely done. Love the narrator. The app does get updated with new narration every year or so, so we are always discovering new things.

    I have used Gypsy guide in BAnff and Jasper and thought it was fantastic. We drove to Hana and it was disappointing on what little it said. Actually turned it off on our way back. Not worth the 9.99 I paid.
  • Wow! A must-use guide to Maui!

    We had done extensive research using the internet and guidebooks, so we had a general idea of where we wanted to go, but this app took our sightseeing on Maui to another level. We kept it on whenever we were driving in a new section of Maui for the first time and enjoyed the stories and even sights that were not in any guidebook. It also helped navigate, because when it arrives at an important intersection it explains where you will go if you turn left, right, etc. We will always look for a Gypsy guide like this wherever we travel. Please start building your international catalogue! Would love to use this in Europe and Central/South America! Honestly, this is the BEST app purchase we have ever made for any purpose. Highly recommended.

    Ditto on everything in the post from saphire1000. This is a very informative, interesting and helpful app if touring Maui. Better than just doing your own research and planning. I would add that there is a 1.50 reservation fee to go to the top of mount Haleakala. Can call to reserve 2 months in advance. PLUS, there’s a $25 park entry fee. The ticket is good for the state park (including the road to Hana/7 pools) for 72 hours. We didn’t know that. We drove to Hana (free) then took the additional 45 min ride to the 7 pools. We were bummed to be charged an additional $25fee. So if you want to travel that far (great hikes and views) then plan to go to both places within 72 hours. Have a great trip. Aloha

    We used this app on our drive to Hana. It was awesome. I wish I had purchased it before driving up to Haleakala. It represents an excellent value. Just get it, you won’t regret it.

    We heard about this app (tour) from a fellow hotel guest! I downloaded the full Maui version because we knew that we would be exploring! It was the BEST! Taking the road to Hana was great. If we didn’t have this app, we would’ve stopped at every stop. But because we got the advice of when to and when not to stop, we feel like we really got a personalized tour! Thank you!!!

    Sadly, can only give 5 stars, not the 10 stars it deserves. Great , great, great app !!! Really is like having a personal tour guide with you. The app works flawlessly. Uses the GPS in in your phone to know where you are (for areas with no cell phone signal). Do remember to charge the phone as you go .Gives turn by turn instructions (“ get into the left two lanes to turn to .....”). Tells you which turn outs and viewpoints to stop at and which you probably should pass by. Tells you when there are upcoming roadside vendors and gives advice at which ones might be worth a stop . Great history lessons as you go along. Our group scoured two guide books, but found this far more helpful. This app is an absolute “must have “!
