Loved it BUT...
We loved the GPS tour!
The app made the longer drives to the North and South shores more fun. The beach road turnoff suggestions were on point. The history of various spots on the island was very cool.
The only thing I did not like was the app had to be open and phone screen left on. Any time you turn off the screen or phone goes into lock mode the tour stops. Not a problem if you remembered your car charger big problem if you didn't. It also ran my phone pretty hot, no more so than imaps but definitely would prefer to click the screen off and still continue the tour.
I wish there was more added occasionally through updates. It is the tiny isle Kauai and the tour is really fun but I think there is a lot more that could be said. Overall, this was my go to Kauai App and not the popular book series app simply for the fun guided tour. I loved the chimes before she spoke and loved her voice too. Great job! Keep it fresh. Mahalo!
Very nice audio tour. Just enough info. You start the app and just drive, when you pass a GPS trigger point it gives you specific timely info. You can run a GPS map in the background to have turn by turn directions if you like.
Somehow it seems that when returning on the same road it doesn't play the same thing again which is nice. I rarely give a 5 rating to anything but this app gets one
Buy it, use it, love it
A must-have app if you're planning a driving tour of the island. The information provided along the way is very informative, interesting and helpful, but not intrusive to a pleasant drive. Many of the sights pointed out would have been very difficult, if not impossible to find without this app. Definitely worth every penny paid, even though we only used it for one day.
