WORKS OFFLINE No data, cellular or even wireless network connection needed while touring. Download over Wi-Fi before you tour. Anyone can use them with no need for roaming data – even visiting from another country. DRIVING TOUR ROUTE This tour includes the most popular sightseeing stops and many more: 1) Pukalani 2) Makawao 3) Hosmer's Grove 4) Kalahaku Lookout 5) Haleakala Summit and Crater 6) Plus many more scenic viewpoints We recommend giving yourself at least a 1/2 day to drive the Haleakala Tour. If you are planning to visit for sunrise, a reservation with the national park is required and visitor numbers are controlled. At other times of the day, no reservation is required but there is a fee to enter the national park. If you drive to the end of the Road to Hana, the national park pass is good for entrance to both the summit and the Kipahulu section of the park. NOTES 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.

This app still works even at the summit with very high altitude when Google was completely dead!!! It saved my life because the driving conditions are way more confusing than I expected!!! Highly recommended!!!
Went seeking for this one after using the Road To Hana app (because it is outstanding). Definitely helps and decreases anxiety while climbing into the unknown in the dark! Facts and commentary are a lovely pairing while making these exciting journeys.
So happy we bought this app. Really well designed, and worked flawlessly even when cell service was out.
The developer should have warned or had a way to prevent users from buying both. Disappointed I was charged twice for the same thing. The app itself is good.
We downloaded this app before arriving on Maui. We didn’t want to take a tour with other people and wanted to go at our own pace. This was perfect! Our kids nicknamed the narrator “James” and we all enjoyed the app so much we downloaded the Gypsy guide for Kauai for our second week in Maui. Highly recommend this app.
So glad we downloaded this app! Got to tour the island at our own pace and decide what stops were worth taking! Learned quite a bit from this app, narrated by a very educated and island friendly guy!
If you are in Maui and has a car and want to tour the Island, I highly recommend you use this tour app IT IS AMAZING!👍🏾. The narrator is fun and extremely helpful, thank you for creating this app, this made 10th anniversary a blast!
We named our tour guide Bob. Bob led us all the way to Hana on his awesome Road To Hana tour. We were thrilled for Bob to join us on our journey up to Haleakalā. Once again Bob did not disappoint. He knows just where to go and what to do, just like the Hana tour. In fact, now that our tours with Bob are over we miss him already! 5 stars!
So lucky we have discovered these GyPSy audio tours. Just be right amount of information, tips, and a splash of good humor. We used two back to back over past two days on Maui. They made a huge difference in our experience. Well done and thanks!
App is fine, it serves the purpose, but it said Haleakalā guide is $3.99 and I was charged $8.98! Another thing I noticed that app doesn’t run in the background. If I switch to another app, I had to restart the tour.
