It’s Just Like Having a Tour Guide in Your Car™ WHAT TO EXPECT: Though Maui is easily driveable and accessible, you will want to take your time and explore all corners of this diversely beautiful island paradise. It a place like no other where in a day you can be swimming with turtles, or hiking the moonscape at the top of an extinct volcano, or absorb the refreshing mist of a rainforest waterfall. For the easiest possible experience, the entire island has tour commentary. All you have to drive, and the tour will transition automatically as you move from one section of the island to another. You simply drive, listen to the commentary and make decisions the places that interest you the most, just like have a local friend to show you around. Don’t know where to begin? We’ve suggest dividing Maui into 5 different areas - all are included. ROAD TO HANA • Hooikipa Park • Twin Falls • Keanae Peninsular • Wai’anapanapa Park • Hana • Wailua Falls • 'Sacred' Pools of Ohe’o HALEAKALA • Pukalani • Makawao • Upcountry • Haleakala Crater (National Park) WEST MAUI • Lahaina • 8-mile Lookout • Ka’anapali • Kapalua • DT Fleming Beach Park • Honolua Bay • Nakalele Blowhole SOUTH MAUI • Kihei and beaches • Wailea • Polo Beach Turtle Town • Makena – Big Beach and Little Beach • La Perouse Bay IAO VALLEY • Iao Needle • Kepaniwai Park • Wailuku • Ma’alaea Bay and Aquarium BATTERY USAGE: ++ Continued use of GPS/Location Services in the background increases battery usage. We strongly recommend taking a cigarette style (DC outlet) car charger. Avoid using a direct connection to the USB port of a rental vehicle. IPADS: ** iPad models must include a GPS chip. Please note that Apple only install these on the iPad Wifi + Cellular models. Wifi only iPad models have limited location service capabilities and are unable to play commentary automatically.

What a great app! This made our trip so much better, interesting, and informative. We named you Bosley!
Was a super great help. Very informative & entertaining.. we did 3 drives with the app & loved. Wish that on the return from Hana you also pointed out and gave a heads up for the 5 essentials again. 💕💕💕
I was skeptical to buy a $10 app, but let me tell you it was the best purchase of our entire trip to Maui! His voice was easy to listen to, the tips and stories were awesome addition, the recommended stops were definitely worth it and the gps was spot on! He would say “just around the next curve you’ll see....” and sure enough 2 seconds later we would take the curve and there was what he was talking about! 100% would recommend this app for anyone driving the Road to Hana!
This was so easy and super informative. Would like to know if they get updated? For instance nothing about COVID and all the roadside stands that were closed. Most of the suggested stand stops were not open. There were a few other updates I thought about also. This app is a must for Maui and I’m looking forward to using the others.
The app is a saver if you going to Hana, as a truck driver who is driving a lot on the road i can say this is a great navigation, also the voice is not annoying and have a lot nice stories to make you company cuz there is no network at all (only right in the Hana town)
Absolutely enjoyed the commentary and interesting stories. Perfect guide to know Maui!
This app is a must download! It’s not free but it’s so worth the $10!! We learned so much more than we would have otherwise and learned a lot about Hawaiian culture! Definitely worth the extra $2 instead of the road to Hana only
We used the app whenever we were on the road in Maui. Learnt so much Maui history, geology, geography, flora and fauna and trivia. The narrator was smart, funny, cool and great company! I would describe him as that awesome uncle that everyone loves in the family!
Engaging and informative. Well worth the ten bucks. We drove the entire island of Maui and heard every interesting story and recommendations. Highly recommend.
