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.

  • Amazing!

    By Getmetothemountains
    My husband hates most phone technology, was hesitant about using this app, BUT is now a HUGE fan! It made what can be a difficult journey very simple and enjoyable! We both look forward to using other Gypsy Guides. This truly maximized our experience while on the road to Hana!
  • Great work!

    By Pangeaj
    This was amazing. Downloaded it last minute and it worked like a charm. Really enjoyed the recommendations and a couple times we stopped when it told us to keep going and he ended up being right. My 10 year old was all about it on the way back learning about the history of the island. We will watch for their apps in our future travels. Probably my favorite app experience in the last five years. Very impressed.
  • Worth the money!

    This app is great! It’s a fabulous guide and tells you which places are great. It also gives you historical information as you drive.
  • Good app

    By Joakes12
    This app works wonderfully. Gives you plenty of time before the stops and guides you through the entire trip with fact and stories
  • 100% Recommend.

    This app made our drive go so smoothly. Not only does he tell you his favorite and recommended spots - but he’ll tell you based on how much time you have what’s okay to skip. He tells you in advance what’s coming up, and then reminds you again when it’s closer. He keeps the drive light and full of fun facts about each stop, and then on the way back tells you a brief but rich history on the islands and how they came to be. I don’t think I would ever do Hana again without this app. It made it so easy to navigate and he even gives tips on how to best handle the extremely curvy roads. I don’t often leave reviews but thought this one was worth coming back with a positive review! Definitely recommend.
  • Great App.

    By Jannie Bananie
    This app was amazing. Very helpful and informative with a touch of humor. So glad we used it.
  • Highly Recommend

    If you plan on driving the Road to Hana by yourself then this app is a must have. Great commentary throughout. Goes over the history of Hawaii on the return journey and points out all the important sites along the way. I would recommend leaving at 6 AM or before if you plan on taking your time at stops.
  • Incredible guide for our drive to Hana!

    By mros365
    Wow this app made for an excellent guide when we drove to Hana. I was a little skeptical at first, but I actually was incredibly impressed by how easy it was. Just make sure you have a car charger and you should be good to go! One note: it would be nice to see a little more from the app itself, like some text/picture descriptions to scroll through in addition to the audio, but the audio was perfect and the geofenced audio triggers worked perfectly!
  • OMG terrific app

    By DanteA2001
    Our journey on the road to Hana would have been so much less informative if we did not stumble across this app. We felt like the “tour guide” was riding right with us in the car. The information was great and he helped us prioritize what we wanted to see because there is just so much to see. Definitely worth the cost of the app and more!
  • A must use!!!

    By Cgamble416
    We are not planners!! We do everything spur of the moment and unorganized! The concierge at our hotel recommended this app as a guide tool and I am so glad we took the time to download it!!!!!! Such a big help and so informative👍
