Detect-o-Gromit 2 is the official trail app for Gromit Unleashed 2, which will see Nick Park's Academy Award®-winning character Gromit return to Bristol in 2018 for his second starring role in the award-winning charity's sculpture trails, but this time he's not alone; the loveable pooch will be joined by his pal Wallace and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw!

The trail features 67 giant sculptures designed by high-profile artists, designers, innovators and local talent. Sculptures are positioned in iconic locations around Bristol and the surrounding area, perfect for a family day out around the city and beyond.

Use the app to navigate the trail, and learn about the sculptures, artists and sponsors of the trail. With fun trails to follow, challenges to win awards, and character camera frames to share your photos along the way, there’s fun for all the family!

You can track your progress around the trail, log your physical activity through integration with your device's native health app, and discover parts of Bristol you’ve never seen before.

What’s more, in purchasing this app, you are supporting The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.

App worked ok last week but today, none of the awards have registered. We spent the day in Bristol and found 38 statues but didn’t get any awards. Was expecting to get Sculpture Vulture; Dizzy for Sculptures - tried this 3 times and made myself very dizzy; Tailgater - failed every time; Trailblazer - we’ve seen all 4 but no award; 5k and 10k steps - we’ve done 28,000+ steps today. We have to come back to get the last 2 figures we’ve missed out on but can’t do them all again to get the awards. Plus the Maize Maze one didn’t work last week. Very disappointing

Awesome But.....


Simple and easy to use, love the maps means if you not local you’ve got a great tool to show you the city, does drain the battery but was prepare with handy charger.
I haven’t given it a 5 star rating because not all of my frames have opened when I have visited the correct sculptures and I’m missing some awards that I should of had like tail gating, and the 5k and 10k steps.
Great cause thank you!

Geat idea but execution could better

Redundant Banker

A brilliant, fun, concept that also raises money for an excellent cause. Unfortunately the actual app needs a bit more work. It drains the battery much faster than any other app I have but despite this is slow to open and to use. The map also needs work as it locates me quite some distance from where I actually am.
