For just $5 you have a handy tour guide in your pocket. The information was interesting and also engaging. Really a great idea to seamlessly tour the spots without having to stop and read along the way.
Bought and downloaded both the Big Sur and 17 mile drive tours neither worked for more than a few minutes, unable to resolve the issue and no support service available.
Must have for your road trip. I have driven the Big Sur before, but this was full of so many interesting facts I had never known as well as suggestions of places that should be seen. The narrator's voice is wonderful, and it only comes on when it has something interesting to say. Now I'm looking at other places that I might be able to use it for..PCH maybe next.
The narrator was awesome and gave tons of details. It was spot on with the GPS, it pointed out things we would have never even known to look for. The information it shares as you drive around is outstanding. It's very helpful in deciding where to spend time and what to skip. We learned so much and it gave our trip so much more depth. I cannot say enough good things about it!
i love this app and the narration. A little expensive but worth the knowledge and pointing out worthwhile sites. This was awesome! This app gives just the right amount of added information to keep your explorations interesting, but not be a school lesson. Used it first for my 17 Mile drive. Will definitely be using it for the rest of my PCH tour.
It is a must have app, if you love to travel. Moreover, it has a great Intuitive desgin and helpful contents. Liked the fact that it works with geolocalisation, you drive and it triggers automatically when needed. This app is the perfect travel companion! You feel like you have a personal tour guide in your vehicle.
WOW!!! What a brilliant concept. The tour is of such high quality and timely. The app itself is easy to use. What was missing was recommendation of places to eat along with the history and facts. I'm usually one to who's hard to please with technology. I highly recommend it.
Very enjoyable and informative to listen to. Though I did have minor challenge of loading the app, but received immediate customer service support. The information given were most helpful and made the trip much more enjoyable and educational. The map should have sequential stops with direction to the next one.
It worked offline was a pleasant surprise. Best thing about this is it does not require internet connection which helped us we drove along the PCH. The only thing that could make it better would be adding tour information for walking trails along the PCH.
Glad you added the version that goes from San Luis Obispo to Monterey and not just the other way. Found it helpful since we drove north from LA. Will you be creating a tour for the segment from LA to SLO? Or from Monterey to SF?
