DRIVING TOUR ROUTE

This tour includes the most popular sightseeing areas, famous drives and much more:
1) The Road to Hana
2) Haleakala - the Volcano Reservations are required to visit for sunrise.
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
Must Download!!! Worth EVERY Penny!!
Words cannot express how impactful this app has been to us having a successful trip to Maui!!! The narrator is easy to listen to - nothing whatsoever annoying about his voice or manner of speaking. We did a ton of research on our own, but we learned so much from the narration. It helped us navigate our trip to Haleakala and the Trip to Hana, around the island in general, around the West coast of the island which was spectacular! Etc etc etc. We learned nuances no research could give us. It was exceptional - I would use this company for any of their narrator services. The map also helpful. Really loved being given a heads up in upcoming pull-outs through hairpin and switchback curves so we were prepared to pull over vs being too late to turn in. Also — he made sure we didn’t miss any of the spectacular views. When he insists it’s worth the stop, IT IS!!! Take his advice! He’s spot on! I feel like he’s on old friend now. Lol!! They are developing more apps for more locations— now that I now about it, I will ALWAYS check if one is available wherever travels may take me. Mahalo for making our vacation to Maui even more spectacular!!! Aloha!
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!
Wow! A must-use guide to Maui!
We had done extensive research using the internet and guidebooks, so we had a general idea of where we wanted to go, but this app took our sightseeing on Maui to another level. We kept it on whenever we were driving in a new section of Maui for the first time and enjoyed the stories and even sights that were not in any guidebook. It also helped navigate, because when it arrives at an important intersection it explains where you will go if you turn left, right, etc. We will always look for a Gypsy guide like this wherever we travel. Please start building your international catalogue! Would love to use this in Europe and Central/South America! Honestly, this is the BEST app purchase we have ever made for any purpose. Highly recommended.
