Very well narrated tour. Absolutely worth the $6.99.
Would it have been too much to give battle insight and stories during all the dead space? Problematic that map function turns off when narrator talks. Mostly a waste of seven bucks. Disappointed! Two stars might be a stretch.
An excellent way to experience Gettysburg! The auto tour seamlessly integrates with GPS and is easy to follow, offering great storytelling and opportunities to hop out of the car and get closer looks. Could not have worked better!
GPS doesn’t work right
We really enjoyed the tour from the safety of our own vehicle! We had some trouble playing the extra info but overall a really cool ap!
Once we downloaded the tour and got started, things were easy. This was an amazing experience for adults and children. It’s best to expect to drive slow as the program uses GPS and will skip to the next audio portion if you drive fast. The tour was very engaging and comprehensive and guide has a pleasant voice. We spent 5 hours to complete the tour as we stopped at each Monument to take pictures. I would recommend this app and experience for someone who is new to Gettysburg!
Would not recommend this at all. GPS did not work, nor did the signs to tell us what was there. Do not waste you money.
You need to warn people of the download. It takes about 20 minutes. We had wi fi at our campground but it took a long time.
We toured the battlefields Sunday September 13th, 2020 and this app worked great for our driving tour! The map route was very helpful and it was simple to follow what stop we were supposed to get to next! We were able to play it through our car speakers so everyone could hear, the audio was very well done! One of the downsides to this app was each time I would close out of the app to use my phone to take pictures, after opening the app again it wouldn’t track our location until I restarted the app, opened the tour, skipped ahead to where we left off, and I had to do that every time I went to take pictures (which was a lot). We only got mixed up in the tour twice. At point 3F, the guide tells you to turn left into Seminary Ridge Museum parking lot which is now not an entry point. The parking lot is to the right so we pulled in there to play the informative spot 3G. It seems like a quick update to the app can fix that slight confusion. The only other mix up we had was on our way from point 15 to 16, we crossed through 12B again which interrupted the audio for point 15. We had to pause the audio for 12B and skip ahead using the arrow buttons to get back to audio 15. This was just a bit frustrating since I was the one driving and operating the app. Other than the few glitches, most of the tour was hands free audio. While we were approaching the marked areas on the map, automatic audio would begin to play stories and information as well as tell us directions; which was a very helpful feature! I’ll definitely use this app again! I hope the next time I go to use this app there are alternate routes on roads that we weren’t guided to. There’s so much more to explore and I would love another guided tour from this app.
