I discovered this app while preparing for our trip to Death Valley. It seemed interesting so I did the yearly subscription option. During what could have been a very boring drive through the park, we were actually quite entertained by all of the history, geology, geography, and other interesting tidbits that the app plays as you drive. It was nice that the app gives you plenty of advance notice of turns coming up ahead and what those turns lead to. My wife and I kept telling each other that this trip wouldn’t have been the same without the commentary from Just Ahead. We can’t wait to use it at the other national parks!
My husband and I are both PhD’s in natural resources and love how this augments our drive. We find the information basic but factual and on a wide breadth of topics. We have found many drives we never knew existed. I highly recommend this for anyone!!!
We have LOVED using Just Ahead for our travels around the country. It has added a whole new layer of excitement to visiting the national parks. We have learned so much and have discovered previously unknown gems! So much of national parks is driving - and you never know which pull offs are worthwhile, etc. but Just Ahead makes the whole experience educational and makes sure you don’t miss a great spot or waste time on dead ends. We recommend it to all of our friends and can’t wait for more guides to come out. Thank you for such a useful, educational app!
We happened into this app while traveling in the Big Bend area of Texas and couldn’t believe our great fortune. Right on cue the app brought up site after site and discussed each. It even gave us warnings about rough dirt roads, etc that might give us trouble. It operates by a very accurate GPS. We love it! We look forward to using it in Arizona in a couple of weeks.
Was great for the old and younger of our family on our trip to Yellowstone and Teton National Parks. So many things we would have never stopped at without just ahead telling us about it. We will use this app for all our vacations in the future!!!!
Just used this app. It worked amazing. Kids enjoyed all the information. Just used it for Yellowstone and the Tetons. Trip would not have been as fun or as informational without this app! Worth every penny!! some friends of ours rented a box for their car and paid over 200$. This app just ahead have us so much more in the way of info. Telling all my friends about needing this app before going to the National parks. Kids said it would even be fun for around town!
We purchased full year subscription. We are 3 weeks into a 4 week trip throughout Western State. Currently in Zion National Park. We have enjoyed 5 Tours and all are all WONDERFUL. These tours are a bargain! I have sold several for the producer by recommending to other travers. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
This travel app turned into a welcome companion during a long road trip through 5 national parks. All of us enjoyed the tips and history provided during our 4400 mile trip.
We were RV camping two summers ago out west, someone at the AAA office told me about this app. We went to Grand Canyon/North Rim, Arches, Canyonland, Bryce, Grand Teton and a week in Yellowstone. This’s the best travel app out there, worth every penny. The best thing is the fact that you don’t need internet and cell connection. One time while we were in Yellowstone the app crashed, we were lost. We drove to Cody Wyoming which was 4 hours from our campsite. No problem, on our way back we learned a lot by listening to the app. Next, I am planning to use it in Smoky Mountains. If traveling as a group it may be best to install the app in two devices. Thank you.
We downloaded the Death Valley guide a couple of years ago, the narration was outstanding. We learned about places that we wouldn't have normally learned about if we didn't use this app! Were headed to Grand Canyon, Bryce and many more parks right now. Definitely getting the package. Thank you for an outstanding guide, it’s better than a Disneyland tour! Five stars, Highly recommended!
