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.

  • Where are we?!

    By The critical winers
    What a great find. My husband is guide/map driven. This app basically saved our marriage. It provided excellent and precise directions. We loved that it pointed out other sites and let us know whether to stop on not. Commentary was excellent and our app guy had a great sense of humor! The road to Hana is not an easy drive and Gypsy was like having a tour guide along for the ride without being boring or annoying! Worth every cent!
  • Very useful, but disrespectful I think

    By Amelia0805
    This app was very useful on the way to Hana. It would have been very difficult to choose where to stop given the myriad options. This app concisely gives you your options and just the right amount of guidance. The history on the way back is told in an engaging way, with pauses so you can discuss with your car mates. One thing I will say: I think he intentionally glosses over the violence wrought upon native Hawaiians by Europeans and Americans. He calls the behavior of the Native Hawaiians “adulterous” (imposing rigid, Victorian mores on an entire society without proper contextual info). He also does not spend enough time on how schools and churches were an instrument of racism. The fact that Hawaiians were prohibited from speaking Hawaiian at schools gets a very brief mention.

    This app was awesome and very accurate! Made the drive to Hana more enjoyable and very informative! I was so happy not to have to read a map so I didn’t get car sick as the passenger! I highly recommend the app!
  • Needs more hidden waterfall trails

    By Dentistfamily
    I really wish he would’ve given you all the trails to all the waterfall through the drive and what to expect not just his favorites. I was told there were so many hidden waterfalls that you can hike to that we didn’t see. Other than that he was very informative and a great app.
