DRIVING TOUR ROUTE
This tour has commentary whether you drive it from east to west or the other way. Some of the highlights include:
1) Logan Pass
2) Oberlin Bend
3) The Loop
4) Triple Arches
6) Weeping Wall
8) McDonald and St Mary Lakes
You can join the tour from West Glacier on the western side, or ar St Mary if approaching from the east or from Waterton National Park in Canada.
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.
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. Our goal is to provide a great introduction to the region and perhaps inspire you to learn more and return. None of our apps include paid advertising or placements for benefit.

Ratings and Reviews
Indispensable for auto touring
Wow!! This is the second year we have used GypsyGuide, throughout the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park’s GoingToTheSun Highway. It worked flawlessly with smartphone connected by Bluetooth to car’s speaker system. Just like going on a guided tour in your private vehicle. It’s display on your phone gives your exact location and where the next audio point of interest is located. I highly recommend all versions that we used.
Just used it today for a round trip from West Glacier. The commentary was easy to understand, informative and well said. The gps location use allows the app to know where exactly it is and the comments about views, turn offs, parking and hike access are precise and easy to use.
On the return we heard the same comments in reverse order with some appropriate differences.
Overall, excellent purchase.
This guide was perfect! Great timing and I learned and saw so much more than if I were to have just drove through on my own. I am on a goal to hit all of the national parks and will be using these guides for the ones that are available.
