Gettysburg Driving Tour now has over 1.5 hours of audio so that you can hear stories and music at each of the 16 stops as well as on the drive to and from each stop.
Drive through Gettysburg and into history with Gettysburg Tours. Watch live action battle scenes that help you imagine real events on Gettysburg’s open fields. Gettysburg Tours isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. If you do not allow the app to track your location, the app will show your location as the last location your app was at and the GPS triggers will not work automatically.
At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can:
-GPS triggered audio that plays automatically as you drive
-Watch battle videos specific to your location
-View custom maps
-See historically accurate and realistic paintings
-Get directions to the next stop
You can zip through the park quickly by pausing at a limited number of key stops, or spend more time and experience all 16. It’s fun, flexible, and easy to use. The audio in the app will trigger and play as you drive by historic battle fields.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, worth the money!
I'm not one to write reviews, but I just had to give my vote of support for this app. It worked perfectly, clips played at exactly the right time depending on our location, and were filled with good information. We had it going through the Bluetooth in our car stereo so it was easy for everyone to hear. We enjoyed being able to go at our own pace and spend as much or as little time at each location as we wanted. It was well worth the $10, much better than paying $35 per person for a bus tour where you are herded with a bunch of people you don't know and don't get to choose how much time to devote to each stop. I would definitely recommend it.
Agree with all other positive reviewers
Just finished the auto tour today and the app worked brilliantly. Hooked up iPhone to Bluetooth on the RV stereo and it guided us through the whole thing without us having to mess with the phone. App is perfectly priced considering the way overpriced audio CD at the visitor center ($30 as of today). I’m sorry but I’d expect an actual human tour guide for that price. If you follow the auto tour signs starting from the visitor center you’ll have a great experience. I saw some people refer to pics and videos but we didn’t mess with any of that. The audio tour and our own eyeballs were all we needed. Thanks for a great alternative to the pricey options at the visitor center.
Great App for a customized experience!
I downloaded this app after a close friend told me about their trip to Gettysburg. I’ve done a guided tour before at Gettysburg and found it exhausting to stop at suggested spots, but did not want to miss out on the history. It took about 5 hours to get through.
This time around I went with a group of visitors who wanted to see and learn everything about Gettysburg but were on a strict time frame. The app helped us get to some major landmarks, while still allowing us to hear about the sites we decided to drive through. Great app, would recommend to visitors interested in learning and experiencing Gettysburg in an efficient way.
