TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE TO THE ROCKIES
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 you things and not be tied to anyone else schedule

DRIVING TOUR ROUTE

- The tour will give you directions for the fastest way to Highway 1
- We'll share stories, tips and advice to get you excited about your visit
- Make informed decisions with your precious vacation time
This tour is designed as an introduction as you arrive to the National Parks. It does not provide commentary from Banff to Calgary as you are leaving the Rockies.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Extremely useful app which enhanced our vacation and enjoyment.
Very helpful and full of interesting facts for our travels
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!
