DRIVING TOUR ROUTE

This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more:

3) West Maui including Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kapalua and Kahakuloa
4) Kihei, Wailea and Makena
5) Iao Valley
6) and all the routes that connect these amazing places,
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Personal Tour Guide (basically)
This made our trip to Hana, so much more relaxing and fun. My mom and I were in Maui for vacation and we hadn’t planned a lot of things out. We knew for sure that we wanted to do the road to Hana, but hadn’t done a ton of research on the stops and what not. The day before our trip, I came along a blog that highly recommended this app. So, of course I looked into it and it had nothing big great reviews. First off (and super important), there’s cell no service on the road to Hana. The app is able to continue the GPS, even when you don’t have service. Along with the GPS, the narrator (I named him Dave) tells you where you should stop for gas and food, gives you accurate time lines, let’s you know what’s worth stopping for/the must sees, what’s not worth stopping for, etc. In between spots, he tells stories of Maui’s history, which keeps the long drive interesting and entertaining. It’s almost like you have a personal tour guide accompanying you in the car. This app literally did all of the work for us, we didn’t have to plan a thing really. So if you’re on the fence about downloading, don’t be. It is very, very worth it!
Best $ we spent
I don’t pay for many apps but this is well worth it. It guided us all over Maui. My 13 year old twin boys were asking me to turn this on so they could hear all about Maui. It doesn’t use any data to use the app. It uses your gos—there are parts of the island where thee is no cell service so this was real handy. It does eat away at your battery but since we were in the car we were connected to the charger. I can’t read maps like I use to (fine print) so the app totally walked you through to where you wanted to go. The only thing I didn’t like was sometimes on the map you would try and move to look ahead on the map and if you tried this it would right away snap to where you were.
Oahu and Maui Guides
I found that the guide was spot on and the suggestions really enhanced my trip. A fun thing to note was how many people we met that suggested the gypsy guide 😁 and how many I referred to the app. Now suggested updates would be allow user to move the screen around to see what was coming down the road and put a re-center button when you do look further down the road. The other suggestion would be to put in a destination and suggest a route that takes us onto the tour route. Might be a little tougher but we found ourselves going to a restaurant and wanting to go exploring afterwards. Other than that I really enjoyed the commentary and learned a lot about the islands.
