iPad and iPod Users:
If you have an iPad please note that only the WiFi+Cellular models include a GPS. iPods do not have a GPS.
Note about Cell Phone Coverage and Data Roaming:
The Tour Guide works without cell phone coverage. The GPS has clinical precision everywhere on Maui. International customers can turn off data roaming. A network connection is used, when available, to update the map, but this map can be cached before heading out on a trip.
A couple reviewers note problems with the GPS/map not working. This happens when you deny the App access to use your current location, which turns off the GPS. Version 1.2 includes warnings to make it clear when your GPS is turned off.
FYI, the Tour Guide discusses virtually every attraction on the Hana highway and will recommend which ones to see and which to skip (since most only have 1 day for Hana). Many attractions are very difficult to find. That's where the GPS Tour Guide shines!
Fixed app freezes in iOS 8. This also fixes reported iPhone 6 freezes.
Purchasing app automatically unlocks all tours. Previously tours were purchased individually inside the app.
Listen to music in the background. The Tour guide will pause music when she speaks.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is slick. It tells you about your surroundings and where to find attractions. There are also a lot of historic references. No more guess work and wondering what’s about, the app makes exploring very easy and stress free. We’ve been to Maui several times but I think we discovered more on this trip than any previous. Mahalo!
She's a bit bossy
Used this guide during our last trip to Maui. While driving the road to Hana the guide repeatedly reminded us about our time and which stops were best to make if our goal was to get to Hana and back. Unfortunately for us, we took the south road back, very treacherous. Not recommended by me or the guide.
Must have Maui app
Tried several similar apps for Maui and this was the best. It's the only one that supports background music play, although my iPhone 6 battery only lasted about 3 hours with the app running and music playing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
