Road to Hana Maui GyPSy Guide 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.

  • Worth a lot more then $4.99

    By Benzos63
    This app is amazing. It guides you through satellite and gives you helpful directions along the way. We would be lost if it wasn't for this app. It was like having your private customized tour guide. Its worth $499 not 4.99
  • Highly recommend this app!!

    By Luckynoodle
    Great little app. It made the trip to and from Hana very enjoyable. The commentary was just enough and it was nice to learn Hawaiian history. Highly recommend this app.
  • Road to Hana

    By A liitle heaven
    We really enjoyed this audio tour. There were many areas that we likely would have missed if not for this guide. The narrator was pleasant to listen to. On the way back, it was interesting to listen to the history. I would recommend getting the app. It is very helpful.
  • Well worth it!

    By Mjike
    The app worked great! We were able to find all the things we wanted to see! I liked the information and history that was provided! We enjoyed our journey to its fullest.
  • Your inexpensive personal guide

    This had taken us to the best places and guided us to not to miss important ones. Saved so much time, and given so much knowledge while heading back
  • So Glad We Used this App!

    By Vovolley
    I found this app through a recommendation from a blog post about the Road to Hana and I am so glad that we used it! It was so helpful and really allowed us to enjoy the journey much more than if we would have had to follow a map and watch for the best points of interest ourselves. We were truly amazed by how great of an app this was - it worked wonderfully without cell service (which is a majority of the drive), told us what we could skip and recommended must see stops, and even had a sense of humor- which gave the app a much more human feel. Like others have said, a couple things do need to be updated like the caves being closed and we weren't able to find the vanilla bourbon toasted coconut it recommended (it would have made a great souvenir for someone back home). But overall, superior app - I'll actually be sharing this app with our travel agent so she can recommend it to future Maui travelers!
  • Fantastic !

    By steeleeone
    Worked flawlessly !!
  • Extremely helpful!

    By Benjwa
    I purchased this before our first drive on the Road to Hana. We found it to be informative and helpful without taking over our trip. When we completed our drive and finished using the app, my wife asked, “How much did that cost?” When I told her it was $4.99, she was amazed, and thought it would have been 2-3 times that amount. I am buying their full Maui app right away!
  • Great option for self drive road to Hana

    By Debye6
    Great commentary and always provided turn by turn directions in plenty of time. Thoroughly enjoyed!
  • Reverse

    By Sicbo21
    Wish they had an option to flip the narration. We would of liked to drive to the 7 sacred pools first and do the hike then make our way down the hill. That feature would of been nice.
