Description

GyPSy Guide’s narrated driving tour covers the entire island of Maui and is an excellent way to enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour while you explore at your own pace. There are 470+ audio points that play automatically along the scenic drives, featuring the best things to see and do, stories, local tips and driving directions. **You'll hear entertaining stories about the history, geology, wildlife, hikes, Hawaiian culture and people. **Get valuable guidance about how to prioritize your time at recommended "not to be missed" viewpoints, suggested side-trips and places of interest. **Be more informed than other travellers with local tips, all while you explore at your own pace. Tours work offline, using free GPS signal and location services, so no data roaming, network, or wifi is required while touring. Visit www.gypsyguide.com for route maps, sample audio, tips and advice and what to know before you go. It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise. It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall. For the easiest possible experience, the entire island has tour commentary. All you have to drive, and the tour will transition automatically as you move from one section of the island to another. You simply drive, listen to the commentary and make decisions the places that interest you the most, just like have a local friend to show you around. Don’t know where to begin? We’ve suggest dividing Maui into 5 different areas - all are included. ROAD TO HANA • Hooikipa Park • Twin Falls • Keanae Peninsular • Wai’anapanapa Park • Hana • Wailua Falls • 'Sacred' Pools of Ohe’o HALEAKALA • Pukalani • Makawao • Upcountry • Haleakala Crater (National Park) WEST MAUI • Lahaina • 8-mile Lookout • Ka’anapali • Kapalua • DT Fleming Beach Park • Honolua Bay • Nakalele Blowhole SOUTH MAUI • Kihei and beaches • Wailea • Polo Beach Turtle Town • Makena – Big Beach and Little Beach • La Perouse Bay IAO VALLEY • Iao Needle • Kepaniwai Park • Wailuku • Ma’alaea Bay and Aquarium BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage. We strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. Avoid using a direct connection to the USB port of a rental vehicle. IPADS: ** iPad models must include a GPS chip. Please note that Apple only install these on the iPad Wifi + Cellular models. Wifi only iPad models have limited location service capabilities and are unable to play commentary automatically. DOWNLOADING: The apps are larger in size in order to work offline. You must be on wifi to download as the store may block the download over cellular networks.

    Very informational and fun. Love the automatic GPS location announcements. If you’re a first time visitor, or looking for a bit more history and ‘undiscovered’ recommendations, this app is for you! It does repeat if you drive the same path over and over, for example out of your resort, but we learned to just turn it on when we were approaching a turnoff/start to a trek. This is so great we just purchased it for the big island!
  • Fantastic App- invaluable!!

    For $10, we learned SO MUCH about the Hawai’ian culture. He kept the driving interesting. We drove the entire island and then some, so we hit most of his commentary and it was honestly better than any tour guide. Bonus: no need to tip or deal with waiting for other guests on a bus. Highly recommend.
  • Background Audio Mode?

    The app seems to not play audio when the screen is shut off. I had to keep the app in the foreground and not lock the phone. I would have preferred to lock the phone to let the screen power down, so phones battery and power consumption would be less. Let me know if the app supports this! Justin
  • Great so helpful

    This was exactly what we were looking for! Points out where important stops are and gives historical commentary as well. Very pleasant voice to listen to. We were disappointed each time he stopped talking. This is well worth the cost and download!
  • Amazing - Even for seniors!

    My husband 67 and I am 63 just returned from a Hawaiian cruise vacation where our ship docked at four different ports. We rented a car for a day on Maui and decided to give the app a try instead of paying crazy money for an excursion sponsored by the ship. We love the freedom to go where we want and to be able to stay as long as we wanted. This was amazing so much so that we impulsively rented a car last minute on Kauai and bought the guide for that island. The guide has a great voice, sense of humor and talks just the right amount. We highly recommend. We plan on using some of their other apps too as we love our countries national parks plus love to save money.
  • Saved us a lot and was awesome as well!!!

    We are seasoned travelers and We did every part of Maui and “Dave” was with us all the way. Never had such a great drive experience. Didn’t even need a GPS on Maui as he directed us where we wanted to go. He found us free parking spots we never would have found on our own and let us know our park pass was good for the seven pools and Haleakalā for 3 days. We found great snorkeling and beaches and I can’t imagine the Road to Hana without him! He told us when to keep driving what was good to see and what was a must see. This app is a game changer for us and will always check for a Gypsy tour everywhere we go. Saved us much more than the app cost. We will tell everyone coming to Maui to have “Dave” as a back seat tour guide for the whole trip!
  • Excellent Tour Guide

    We just got back from Maui and this was the first time we used a tour app. Gypsy was fantastic. The directions were right on, the voice was clear, and hardly a mile or two went by without commentary or directions. We had one day with a live guided tour and it didn’t come close to the info that we got from the Gypsy tour.

    As many times as I have been here, using this app has taught me so much and it is so entertaining that the day just flys by. We did all the tours over the ten days here and highly recommend it
