** This app works OFF-LINE while you are touring. There is no need to have a network or wireless connection.
Once downloaded, this tour REQUIRES NO DATA to operate and activate, so you won’t incur roaming or data charges. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A CELLULAR NETWORK CONNECTION TO TOUR!! You will not incur any data roaming charges to use this tour, even if you are from outside the USA. Works Off-line and with Data Roaming turned off.
Professional tour guides have filled the guide with interesting and entertaining stories, loads of tips and advice on what to do and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 55 commentary points on this drive. It’s just like driving around with a local expert.
Just 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 will block the download because of size - so its important to download over a Wi-Fi network.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you travel
** iPad users - please not that Wi-Fi only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPnone or network-capable iPad will work just fine.
++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We strongly recommend bringing a car charger and keeping your device plugged in.

Wonderful idea - well done!
We love driving on vacations, so this app really is for the many of us who want to learn more about the areas we are driving through. And it's also nice to have a friendly voice in a strange place you are visiting for the first time. Delightful!
The app is amazing. I have bought several. Very informative and keeps us engaged.
We were just about to leave to start a drive from Calgary to Vancouver, BC. I decided to see if there were any apps for the Banff area and found this app and 3 others along our route. I cannot say enough positive about GyPSy! The apps completely transformed our trip. The narator is like having a tour guide right in the car. He is easy to listen to with the right amount of humor. Talks included geology, wildlife, flora, history and much more. The app activates based on the car's location on the GPS so it doesn't matter how long you stop in places or if you take side trips, it's there when you return. NO DATA is used which was very important since we were from the states. The app even gives suggestions on which exits to take for services, bathrooms, etc. We learned so much along our drive that we would have completely missed without the app. We can't wait for another road trip where we can use a GyPSy app!
