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. The Gettysburg Driving Tour App isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app. Your iPad or tablet must be cell data capable Or it must be a smart phone. WiFi only iPads will not work for the on-site gps tour. At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can: -Experience 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. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
I had seen this app on a billboard the day before i went to pick my son from Harrisburg to have a family weekend together. I am not a fan of buying apps, but i read a few reviews that night and considered as a destination for the weekend. I couldn’t be more happy that someone has created this app. Guides you from start to finish through the area and provides information along the way with music and sounds that gets you deeply in connection with your surroundings. No need to even touch the app at any time as it automatically explain everything as you move. It even warned me that some videos may replay, as you have to go through some landmarks again to reach the others. Help me create a lifetime memory with family without any issues. The best $9.99 I have ever spent. Recommended.
Great app for the Auto Tour. GPS knew exactly where we were. Great information.
Got the app to take my 73 year old mother with health issues to Gettysburg. It was one of the places on her bucket list. The app allowed us to drive and see the sites at our own pace. My mother enjoyed the commentary, the music and the videos. Well worth the $10 to make the trip enjoyable for mom. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because 3 videos did not play (stops 1,9,11) even with attempting to restart them. But overall the app allowed my mom to have an enjoyable and memorable trip!
I read good reviews so I paid for the app i I only had a short while to be in Gettysburg and the App doesn’t work When it did play after resetting my iPhone the content was severely lacking I had done the park in the past using a audio tour on CD and the content was riveting and interactive. Much better then the app. Also we were turned around and off coarse with the app
The app was very glitchy! There was very little content! It did not flow with the battle very well. It skipped half of the first day’s battle. I should have read the reviews and I would have known better than to download this awful app! The videos are awful I ended up just listening to them and not watching because I had seen the same re-enactment seen 15 times! However, hearing WAR. WAR. WAR. at those awkward times was hilarious. If you knew nothing about the battle it’s not going to change after using this app!!!!!!! WAR. WAR. WAR.
I loved this app plugged into my Harley Davidson and getting to do the tour on the bike. What a great way to discover the history of the battlefields! We also really liked the civil war era music that would play between the stops... so helpful letting you know where potential stops were for bathroom breaks and lunch stops... I highly recommend this app to the biker community as well as anyone that would want to do it in their car... the only thing that could be better, and I don’t believe it is up to the developer but rather Apple, would be adding support for Apple CarPlay so you could see the visuals on your H-D dash.
Pros: less pricey than the audio tour from the gift shop. Gps position triggers commentary to start playing at appropriate times- this worked well. Cons: Very thin on content. I think if you printed out the entire script of commentary from the audio tour, it would total about a page, maybe a page and a half... All for the low price of $10! Did not connect to our bluetooth player in the car- my phone did using other apps, so I’m certain it was something in this app. In the end, I had wished I had tried a different app instead of this one.
Absolutely perfect. Just what we needed since we were there the hottest week in history apparently. It also rained a lot right in the middle so your app saved us. Worked perfectly. Thank you.
Thought I was going to love this app compared to more pricey solutions to explore Gettysburg. Lasted until Little Round Top then the GPS feature failed. I could select the Stop information but no directions for turns or monologue around Devils Den and Wheat field. Feel cheated. The whole app failed at the High Water Mark. No monologue at the Cemetery.
I give the app 2 stars for concept, but I couldn’t get it to actually work. I tried it out home, and I could get the videos to play. But once I was in Gettysburg, the videos simply wouldn’t play. Big disappointment 🙁
