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

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

The tour has commentary everywhere on the island that you will want to explore. There is at least 3-4 days of sightseeing available to enjoy.

This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more:

1) The Road to Hana
2) Haleakala - the Volcano Reservations are required to visit for sunrise.
3) West Maui including Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua and Kahakuloa
4) Kihei, Wailea and Makena
5) Iao Valley
6) and all the routes that connect these amazing places,

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.

Pros and cons of Maui GyPSy Guide Driving Tour app for iPhone and iPad

Maui GyPSy Guide Driving Tour app good for

The content was very interesting and it is very convenient to listen. I can recommend to buy it as a very inexpensive guide.
We rented a car and drove around to many parts of the island. Having this Gypsy app loaded and installed on my phone greatly added to the enjoyment of our day trips. I turned all data off on my phone (so as to not incur excessive roaming charges), and plugged the phone into the car sterio. The GPS on the phone would track direction on its built-in map. When you hit way-points, interesting dialog (including directions) would play.
This app made our vacation in Maui that much better, if thats even possible considering how beautiful the place is to begin with. Without the guidance and history the guide provided throughout the Road to Hana and the trip to Haleakala, there is no way my g/f and I would have enjoyed it as much. Not to mention, we would have had no idea where to stop during the Road to Hana without the advice of our guide. I would have paid double for this app.
I bought this app a couple years ago and really enjoyed it. Going back again and looking forward to discovering more. What would make it amazing is if they update it.
There are many things we never would have seen had it not been for GyPSy. The commentary can be a bit folksy, but the information is excellent and sounds sincere as if you are getting advice from a local. Nice that it points out things to miss when there is a pack of cars, nowhere to stop and nothing to see. Would be nice if there was a way to scan through a transcript of what was said in case you want to go back to what was said later. Also would be nice if it pointed out stuff very briefly on the return trip in case you skipped it on the way out, like the trip to Hana.
We downloaded the app for the Road to Hana initially but loved it so much we downloaded the Full Maui app. I cant say enough good things about this app. Its educational, the guide points out "must sees", best parking areas and great places to eat. Well worth the money if youre going to be spending time touring around Maui! Great job with the app!

Some bad moments

Bought the app and tried to get the commentary and it didnt work. On the road to Hana nothing worked except "that concludes your tour" in the middle of the trip. Called the phone number for tech support. No one answered the phone and no one called me back. I left a message asking for a refund and my request was ignored. Im calling my credit card company and putting the charge in dispute.
Good idea but inconvenience ,dangerous and poorly implemented because this app should allow you to use it with google map or other maps as if it is one app. You have to open both maps one for gps turn by turn guidance and one for audio and have to switch back and forth continously in order to look at direction and reactivate audio. Do this for road to Hana and you may not make it back alive. This app needs to be redesigned to integrate with google map for convenience and safety then it will be a 5 star app.
It never downloaded, but I did get my $9.99 charge on my bill! Thanks!
Paid $10 for app but it is worthless. It does not work and it is useless
This app was good 2yrs ago but since then it hasn’t had updates. Most importantly app doesn’t run in background and on ios8 devices GPS doesn’t always activate even after rebooting phone and reinstalling app.
Used for the Road to Hana route and Haleakala National Park. This is the second gypsy app I have purchased and it is just as good as the other one! Besides directions the guy tells you good places to stop for a bite to eat and also gas stations etc. Worth every penny.
