Description

Gettysburg Driving Tour now has over 1.5 hours of audio so that you can hear stories and music at each of the 16 stops as well as on the drive to and from each stop. Drive through Gettysburg and into history with Gettysburg Tours. Watch live action battle scenes that help you imagine real events on Gettysburg’s open fields. Gettysburg Tours isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. If you do not allow the app to track your location, the app will show your location as the last location your app was at and the GPS triggers will not work automatically. At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can: -GPS triggered audio that plays automatically as you drive -Watch battle videos specific to your location -View custom maps -See historically accurate and realistic paintings -Get directions to the next stop You can zip through the park quickly by pausing at a limited number of key stops, or spend more time and experience all 16. It’s fun, flexible, and easy to use. The audio in the app will trigger and play as you drive by historic battle fields. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    Did not work, the markers wouldn’t play. No instructions, or clear way to use the app. It kept repeating the same fact and telling me to press the overview button which did not exist. Might as well have just set $10 on fire. Total waste of money.
  • Great App for a customized experience!

    I downloaded this app after a close friend told me about their trip to Gettysburg. I’ve done a guided tour before at Gettysburg and found it exhausting to stop at suggested spots, but did not want to miss out on the history. It took about 5 hours to get through. This time around I went with a group of visitors who wanted to see and learn everything about Gettysburg but were on a strict time frame. The app helped us get to some major landmarks, while still allowing us to hear about the sites we decided to drive through. Great app, would recommend to visitors interested in learning and experiencing Gettysburg in an efficient way.

    This is my first review but wanted to write this since I almost passed on buying the app due to some negative comments from others - this app was flawless, once we started we never had to do another prompt, it took us to every stop, gave great comments, enhanced our experience - would recommend this app to anyone that wanted to drive Gettysburg in their own car
  • Good way to hop around Gettysburg

    Highly recommend using this app for your own self-guided car tour. The app is easy to use and the signs around town are easy to follow. My grandma and i used this and really enjoyed our day.

    I'm sorry I wasted my money. It did not work well for me and I'm surprised by the positive reviews, The information was minimal and it was mostly music. I'd like my $10.00 back. It was not worth the money and it was frustrating to use. You need guaranteed cell signals and these can be intermittent in Gettysburg.
  • GPS extremely accurate!

    Visited Gettysburg when we were short on time, decided to do the driving tour, found this app on trip advisor and was extremely pleased with the accuracy of the gps as we moved along the routes. Auto tour signs easy to see and keep you on track.

    We gave this a two star because it was actually dangerous. The gps did not work correctly and in order to advance to the next sight my husband had to manually reset the tour to the next spot. (He was alone )He had to rush through the music to the next spot and most the time he was past what there was to see. Wish we could get our money back. Addendum: I contacted the developer and they have been very gracious and kid and helpful. I have received a refund. Think it may have been user error. So I am changing my review to 4 stars.
  • Great Purchase!

    I'm not one to write reviews, but I just had to give my vote of support for this app. It worked perfectly, clips played at exactly the right time depending on our location, and were filled with good information. We had it going through the Bluetooth in our car stereo so it was easy for everyone to hear. We enjoyed being able to go at our own pace and spend as much or as little time at each location as we wanted. It was well worth the $10, much better than paying $35 per person for a bus tour where you are herded with a bunch of people you don't know and don't get to choose how much time to devote to each stop. I would definitely recommend it.
