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.

  • Great Tour Guide

    By Klisa26
    My family and I heard great things about this app. It is just like having a tour guide. Perfect amount of talking and his suggested stops were perfect. I also like that he he tells you about the other stops even though they are not his suggested stop. He warns you of congested areas or very tight pins. It worked without signal and without WiFi which is awesome because you lose that very quickly.
  • Invaluable

    By Dhmill
    This app was invaluable for our trip! It really made things so much easier. Depending on your time, it helps you decide where to stop! Loved it! It could use a wee bit of tweaking since one of the recommended stops in partially closed.
  • Excellent

    By pattersonmarke
    My Wife and I recently used this app for the Road to Hana and we really loved it! It gives you excellent directions as well as history and fun facts. Works like a dream. Totally worth the price.
  • Great resource but not currently accurate

    By mkf2017
    Like everyone else mentions, this is a great tool to assist you on the road but I will be sending a note to their customer service. As of December 2017, the caves at black sand beach are closed and the seven sacred pools beyond Hana are closed to entry. You can only view the pools from a hill. The narrator is enjoyable and the history for the ride home is entertaining.
  • So helpful for first timers!

    By Napa Notary
    We loved the guided tour on the road to Hana. It was fun to start and stop as we needed and decide which site he recomended was something we wanted to spend time at or not. The guide was pleasant to listen to and also shared many historical facts and tips along the way. Mahalo Gypsy Guide. From Napa, California.
  • Amazing

    By BT from California
    This was so helpful and so very enjoyable. Heading up the recommended stops were spot on and heading back down the history of Hawaii was very interesting. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is taking The Road to Hana.
  • Easy

    By KMcGov

  • Family of 7 w/ 5 teens

    By Gshriver
    Loved this app. Kept us on track and focused on the best things to stop at. Our ride home was educational and entertaining. This is a must app for your trip on the road to Hana!
  • This is the way to go to Hana

    By Phishinacan
    On a dive trip our divemaster recommended that we download this app for our drive to Hana. This is the best way to go. The guide has a great, soothing voice (it comes in handy) and points out 5 “must stop” spots. The rest he makes a recommendation based on the time you’re driving by and what the weather may be like. Plus, the app provides and excellent human history of the Hawaiian Islands on the way back. A must purchase for the road to Hana.
  • 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
