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.

    We are so happy that we used this app on the road to Hāna! We named the narrator Cary! We learned so much about the local history and saw sights I know would have driven right on by. Thanks for making our day the best!

    I named him George for some reason, and put a Hawaiian music Spotify playlist on. The music plays, then lightly fades out as he chimes in, tells you what’s coming, when it’s coming, what he recommends, and all of that. Plus, if you like history, he does a great job of telling you stories to help make the drive go by. Especially on the way back, when you’re tired, he gives you a history lesson of Hawaii. We loved it! We’ll be traveling with George whenever possible 😁
  • Don’t leave home without it 😁

    This is a great app! Very informative and works with your gps, so it works even when your cellular service doesn’t. It’s like having a tour guide in your car, but he doesn’t take up a seat. I love that he pointed out places to stop and to avoid on the way to Hana and told a great story about the history on the way back Worth every cent!!

    Don’t even bother going without this app. Connect your phone to the rental car Bluetooth and turn some good music on. The app automatically dims the music every time it talks. Gives you a tour of the entire road to Hana. Worth every penny
  • Buy this app for an unforgettable experience

    My husband and I are still in Maui- we literally just got back from driving the Road to Hana - and I had to leave this review! Amazing narration, direction and motivation to keep going on the Road to Hana. Mahalo Mike as we named the magical voice that told us stories, gave us perfect and precise turn by turn directions and just simply added so much value to what could have been a very complicated and frustrating day of trying to figure out a map and not missing turns. PS: it’s not like it’s a quick uturn when you miss it, either. Hello, one lane bridges! There is no cell service for many parts of the drive and as a passenger who gets really motion sick (this is not an easy drive- but worth the rally!) it would have been impossible to navigate successfully. Plus, who doesn’t want the feeling of a personal tour guide- who seemed to know exactly what you wanted!!

    We nicknamed the narrator Charles for our trip. It seemed fitting for the ride and it gave us someone to chitchat with. Overall, he was great and we miss him already! 100% worth the purchase and elevated our experience more than we could have done so ourselves. Thank you Charles!!
  • Best purchase ever.

    Gypsy Jim kept us company throughout our gorgeous drive letting us enjoy the amazing scenery without having to worry about missing a thing. So nice to not have to keep the guide books open or fret about passing up a turn or stop. This was the best!!! Met several others on the island that felt the same. This app is perfect for this idyllic drive!
