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.

  • Awesome app

    By kc feom
    What a great way to drive the Road to Hana! The guide tells you what is coming up so you have enough time to decide whether or not you want to stop. Very informative and extremely helpful! We would have missed a lot or wasted a lot of time if we wouldn’t have had this app! Thanks for the good work!!
  • Very handy!

    By Chelsy31588
    We were feeling a little silly to purchase this at first but so glad we did! So much better than trying to read a map for all the neat spots or trying to keep an eye out for where we were supposed to turn for a cool spot. The guide gives plenty of notice before the neat stop offs and it was so helpful that was what we enjoyed most. Then on the return the historical knowledge given was really neat and fun. I will look into using this app for other trips in the future!
  • Pretty Good, but...

    By Apo Man
    Glad we used this. On one hand, it was great at pointing out great places to stop with beautiful views we probably would have otherwise missed. On the other hand, there were several times there was so much commentary it talked right through the turn off we were looking for and we missed it. I would certainly recommend it. Just be prepared for a last second turn, or be prepared to turn around if you wanted to see that particular spot.
  • This app is a must if you’re going to Hana!

    Me and my family loved this app! Now I’m not the type of person to ever pay $6 for an app, but trust me it’s so worth it. It worked perfectly for us and we really felt like we made the most of our trip to Hana. Hana road seemed totally overwhelming, especially since it would be so easy to drive past something amazing without even noticing. This app did an awesome job of letting us know what we needed to see, what we could probably skip, and lots of awesome info about each place. There was so much we would have missed had it not been for our guide. Every side adventure is well worth a small detour. It was just like having a tour guide in our car but we were free to go at our own pace and did just what interested us. On the way back we got awesome commentary about the history of Hawaii. If I could give more stars I would.
  • So worth it!

    By ChicagoCNM
    Typically I am loathe to pay for apps, but now that we’ve done the road to Hana using the GyPSy guide, I’m sure it’s worth more than $5.99! There were a few points that we missed the turn-off bc it was too subtle but for the most part this was a hugely helpful guide and we were able to see the major highlights. I loved the info on Hawaiian history on the road back. We left suuuuper early in the morning which helped us avoid crowds at the vistas and hikes, but some things weren’t open that early like the Garden of Eden and the food places in Nahiku. We packed food so it wasn’t a problem.
  • Great Tour Guide

    Don’t take the Road to Hana scenic tour without this app. You will miss out on a lot if you don’t.
  • Great App

    By PWCroft
    What a wonderful app! We were hesitant to take on the road to Hana but decided to give it a go and got this app. The narration was wonderful and kept us all (ages 11 and up) informed and happy to the end and all the way back. We loved how we were informed of all possible stops and the must see destinations as well as the extra information and the history lesson on the return trip. I highly recommend the road to Hana and this app!
  • Top Notch Tour

    By Camino walker 2015
    Our family of five enjoyed this tour. It was very informative and fun. We felt more informed than anyone else we met and were able to manage our time extremely effectively. Best spent $6 ever.
  • Better than Shaka guide!

    By NanziaZ
    Shaka guide’s fake accent got really annoying. This guide told you exactly what you needed to know about each stop and also helped you avoid sights not worth stopping. Save us time, pleasant voice and good short history.
  • Not as expected

    By sushagr23
    Map doesnt display attractions and doesnt provide accurate guidance where to make turns. We missed couple of spots due to this. Finally i ended up quitting this app and started google maps. I dont recommend this app. Check list of attractions online and create your own route. 👍🏼
