Tour sends you in circles backtracking on previous locations. App then resets itself. Super annoying Also gives zero time to make turns
The commentary is the shining star of this app. Well-explained story and pleasant voice. The app basically takes you through each of the three days of the battle but in a fun & enjoyable way, not just dumping facts. You hear the stories as you drive. The route has some confusing overlaps but as long as you listen to the directions, you’ll be fine. There are times you are asked to pull over and pause — but you will probably be doing a lot of that on your own anyway, like we did. Overall, can recommend.
Succinct but comprehensive stories of the battlefield, the generals, and the armies movements. Worked very well during the entire drive, no GPS issues or audio mishaps. Images and videos were a big help.
We really enjoyed using the gps guided tour. The commentary was informative and fun. It was a big help to have the transcript to read only or go back to re-read the information. Would definitely recommend this to any and all ages of visitors
This tour has not missed a single thing. It is long but very precise. Has covered everything. Made the whole trip worth it’s while. It is also triggered by GPS automatically. I did not have to do anything. As we drove close to a structure, it started talking without pressing any buttons. Really easy to use. Definitely, made my day.
