My family has used this app so much in the last year. I have driven the 15 freeway so many times but adding this guide allowed me to find so many fun stops along the way. The National park guides are equally awesome. I look forward to more guides, both major road trip highways and National Parks.
I’ve used this app in the past. Now it fails to function correctly. It constantly starts over. I was also charged twice. I’ve been working with support for several weeks to get my refunds with no luck. I think they are just running out the clock. Don’t buy.
We are so grateful we came across this app while in Yellowstone. It is like having our personal guide in our car everywhere we go. Love the voice and the type of information that is presented. We purchased the year option and turn it on everywhere there is a tour. I only wish there were more. I hope they keep adding and not just at national parks. Very worth the cost.
This app looks like it will help us find the places we want to see and hike in Big Bend.
How incredible and amazing it is to have your own tour guide with you! Even an hour before arriving, as as you approach the National Park (for example), you’re listening to educational historical and geological overviews! One inside the NP, the guide prompts you on what to expect “Just Ahead”! These developers did an amazing job here! So well worth the minimal cost! Thank you Just Ahead for making our Grand Canyon-Arches-Canyonlands, Capital Reef, Bryce and Zion National Park visit (“The Great Circle Route”) memorable and fantastic!!
I love just ahead. It anticipates so many of our questions. It provides such great tidbits of information! And I love the narrator’s voice.
My family loves this app! It’s like having a ranger along for the ride with you. We all learn so much & enjoy it! I hope they add more parks soon!! P.S- their customer service rocks too! Very responsive with any problems using the app
Downloaded this just before we got to Big Bend National Park. So easy to use and so much great information. We can’t wait to use it at other National Parks.
We love every Just Ahead guide we’ve used. This year I purchased a year subscription and it’s money very well spent. The voice is pleasant and unobtrusive. The app allows us to see and learn things that we would never discover on our own. I give Just Ahead the highest rating available.
Why are you even bothering to read these reviews?! Download the app and get started exploring and/or just enjoying a drive. There aren’t enough superlatives or words to describe how much this app increases your enjoyment and sense of adventure on a road trip. If you aren’t adventurous you will enjoy hearing and learning about the places you pass. History, Fun facts, etc. If you are adventurous - the app invites you to stop, hike, drive, explore stops along the way - and gives you great instructions about how to access the stop. Again, I ask - why are you hesitating?!?!? Download the app and get started.
