We found out about this app before entering Big Bend National Park. We love the app. We got our own personal tour of the park with lots of interesting information about the park. This is a must have
Downloaded this app for our trip to Death Valley, Zion and Joshua Tree. I must say I was totally impressed and loved this app. My wife enjoyed it as well and loved the information it shared as you went along. Would highly recommend!
We bought the season pass and we used it for Zion, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. It helped us find spectacular sites that we would have overlooked. Especially helpful for navigating when there was no cell services.
This app made our trip! We knew what was around the next curve and could plan the pullouts and listen to history about what we were viewing. We would give a 110% rating! We’re over the top happy about our annual purchase. Some of the extras like stops of interest after leaving the park, history of the area/region/peoples all the things roadside signs don’t always tell. Still enjoy listening to the narrative at home as I look at the pictures taken. We will be traveling again soon and look forward to using our app again. There’s a great selection of guides not only of National Parks but other places of interest. Park maps didn’t always show pullouts & picnic/service areas but this app kept us informed of things “Just Ahead”.
Not too wordy hit all the great sites we completely enjoyed it. We did it on a trial. Now I’m trying to figure out how to do the lifetime edition
I saw mention of this app a week or two back, and remembered it for our Big Bend trip. It made our long drives through the park and county a lot more fun. The app plays recorded bits for each location of interest. It was like having a tour guide with you. This included options for the various intersections on the road. Big Bend was free, the other parks are in-app purchases. We will definitely pick up the other parks as we visit them.
Absolutely brilliant idea and essentially flawlessly executed. This app has been our in-car guide in Yellowstone for 3 days & we look forward to using it in 5 more parks. Save your money buying tour books, this app has the guidance (extremely well-timed) , history, fun facts and key restroom, parking info you need. (We even named our guide “Geyser” since the voice is now part of our vacation family).
What a great guide app!! Used this in Arches & Canyonlands National Parks and it was SO helpful and works great. Way better than trying to do a bunch of research in the forums to try to figure out what to see and how long it’ll take etc. Super helpful info and just pops up as you drive along! Love it and will be using it on all future travels for sure.
At the last minute while entering Yellowstone, I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Just Ahead app. It was the best money we spent all trip. We saw so much more of the park because of this app. Short little side trips that you would drive by are pointed out while our “tour guide” let us know what was ahead. Our day in the car did not start until Just Ahead was streaming through the speakers. After leaving the park and while driving the thousand miles home, we often found ourselves wondering aloud what a certain landmark was that we were looking at and thinking, “Just Ahead needs to get busy and add more content.” Awesome app. Thanks to everybody that worked on it.
This app greatly increases your enjoyment of our National Parks. It’s so informative and and interesting. Don’t hesitate, download it now. It’s worth every penny and then some.
