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.

    This app made the trip to Hana a great experience. Ages 9-73 loved the information and stories told. Hats off to our guide. Hated the fish taco shop was closed when we stoped 😕, but the bbq was great! Plan on having cash, as no one took a card for food! Get this app!
  • Awesome!

    Worth every penny and more. We found it very helpful and an amazing tour guide. From the time I turned it on I knew it was a must have. Loved everything about it!!! 6 Stars!
  • This app is why iPhones and GPS were invented!

    Wow! This app...and specifically this narrator, made the trip to Hana not only super easy and stress-free, but also made it a completely enjoyable and educational experience for my wife and I and our two small kids. The directions and highlights are not only spot on, but also incredibly well timed thanks to the GPS. As a side note, play the soundtrack to the George Clooney movie “The Decendents” while this app is running, and it seems to time itself and creates an almost eerily perfect soundtrack for the narration (even better than the “dark side of the moon”/Wizard of Oz mashup.

    I got this app the night before I took the family on the road to Hana. it was perfect it works without cell reception (which is most of the time) and has a very informative history lesson for the road back .it lets you play music in the background and alerts you before check points and commentary . definitely get this if you’re going to Hana it shows you all side beaches and attractions . it’s my fourth time on the road to Hana ,first time for the fam and using this app. next time I go I definitely look forward to hearing what new stuff it adds . 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠

    So glad we used this app. I would not recommend going to Hana without it. It was amazing. Felt like my tour guy was literally in my car and the stories and historical lesson made it even more amazing. It was so good having someone give us heads up on the different spots to see and which ones were better to see vs treacherous to get to.

  • Absolutely Awesome

    Buy it and stop searching! This will be the best money spent on your trip. We did the road to Hana on June 18, 2018 and the Gypsy Guide was awesome. We had done the trip 11 years earlier and there was no comparison. It gives a lot of very relevant advice based on where you are and also helps plan ahead by laying out choices down the road and helps pick where to stop and what to skip based on how early in the day it is. On the ride back you get a very interesting history of Maui that makes the long ride back actually enjoyable. Make sure you hook up sound to car stereo. Most rentals have Bluetooth you can pair with. Bring a charging cable and cigarette lighting adapter. battery will drain fast with this app. Our rental ford had a USB port but it created a conflict with bluetooth so sound wouldnt come out. I used the cigarette lighting adaptor for power instead of the usb port in the car to fix that.
  • Must Have

    By Al Zivojinovich
    DO NOT do the road to Hana without this app. It’s the best, both for directions, and informative dialogue. My only complaint is that he forgot the t-shirts 😂😂😂
  • Like a digital personal tour guide

    By DenverDave5280
    This app is fantastic. It made the road to Hana trip much more enjoyable by providing so much information about the journey and points of interest along the way. It also identified the best sites to see along the way. You start the app on your phone at the beginning of the trip and then it uses the GPS in your phone to provide commentary as you hit important points along the way. It was like have a digital personal tour guide right in your car. It works offline and is well worth the money.
