GyPSy Guide GPS driving tour of the Road to Hana is an excellent way to enjoy a sightseeing trip on Maui’s most famous drive. There are 140+ audio points that play automatically, featuring what to see, stories, tips and advice. All the benefits of a guided tour, the freedom to drive yourself. TOUR GUIDE AS YOU DRIVE THE ROAD TO HANA If you like driving yourself when you go sightseeing, GyPSy Guide™ tour apps allow you to enjoy a guided tour experience while remaining totally independent. By driving yourself, you'll be able to get from place to place faster, see more things and not be tied to anyone else's schedule. DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST SIGHTS AND STORIES The tour apps use your device’s location abilities to play the commentary AUTOMATICALLY. No cell network signal is needed while driving. All you have to do is drive, listen and decide which places you want to stop at (and those you might decide to skip). Our tour guides have created an insightful and entertaining tour for the Road to Hana on Maui. We’ll recommend the best places to experience along the way and some great locations that most visitors will drive by. There’s so much to see and do, GyPSy will help you prioritize what suits you best and make sure you don’t miss a thing. PLAYS AUTOMATICALLY GyPSy Guide knows where you are and which direction you are heading, and plays commentary automatically about the things you are seeing, plus stories and tips and advice. EXPLORE LIKE A LOCAL It’s just like having a local friend to show you around. And that friend just happens to be a professional tour guide. GREAT VALUE The same information you would get on a bus tour or from a guide book, for just a fraction of the price. And you control the itinerary and schedule. 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) Ho'okipa Beach Park 2) Ke'anae 3) Wai'anapanapa Park 4) Hana 5) Hamoa Beach 6) Wailua Falls 7) Seven Sacred Pools at Kipahulu plus many more great scenic stops. We recommend giving yourself a full day to drive the Road to Hana and start as early as you can. The tour is structured so that we concentrate on sightseeing as we drive towards Hana. Most people want to drive back without stopping, so we have all different commentary and stories for the drive back that will entertain you and pass the time more quickly. Beware of suggestions that recommend going “the back way”. You are most likely going to be in a rental car. All the major rental car companies prohibit their cars being taken on the “back side” of Haleakala. 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.

  • Well worth the investment

    By oowhitedoo
    Very professional with all sorts of info about the history of Maui and hints where to pull out for sight seeing. Make sure to have enough juice in your phone though as it is a long drive!
  • Excellent app!

    By Jill from Kitsap
    Heard about this app when we wanted to drive The Road to Hana in Maui. It was well worth the purchase as, not only did the app point out key attractions along the route, it also gave tips for where to park and “what not to miss”. On the way back we got an informative account of Hawaiian history. It also gave interesting facts along the way such as the squirrel looking rodents we saw were mongoose and how they got introduced to the island of Maui. Excellent app. Will use it again for other journeys!
  • Get it! It is so worth the $

    By hanadrive
    Works like a GPS. Pleasant voice. Made the trip super easy! Great tips! Enjoyed the history learned while driving. We did not know the Hawaiians killed Cpt. Cook. Very enjoyable, we looked forward to hearing what was coming next each time we got back in the car. They also have a Maui app and can get both for like $10 or so. If we would have known ahead of time we would have got that!
  • Simply Amazing

    By ebonvini
    I cannot recommend this app enough. Well worth the price. It worked perfectly for us and integrated well with the music we had playing from the same phone during our drive (music lowered in volume during voice overs). The guide was warm and easy to listen to. The storytelling on the way back was a very nice touch. I look forward to downloading more of these guides for future travel!
  • We named him Cliff Bridges

    By Nikki Rae B
    With the road to Hana being a spectacular adventure with breathtaking cliffs and heart-stopping one-lane bridges, we thought it only appropriate to name our virtual tour guide, and day-long companion Cliff Bridges. Loved this app, the guided tour, fun facts and history lesson. This app is a must have if you are driving the road to Hana.
  • A Must

    By GG 3
    This app is a must. We tried the Road to Hana without it and missed the first 2 stops. Thankfully we were able to download it before losing cell service. I highly recommend you get this app before setting out. It recommends stops but also tells you which ones can be skipped based on your time along the way. Enjoy!
  • Wonderful

  • Great App!

    By I341hgop-4th
    So glad we came across this app! We started the trip a little too late in the day, and this app helped us decide when to stop and when to keep going to make the most of our time. It is well worth the purchase price and the historical information given on the drive back helped make the trip interesting.
  • Helpful guide

    By Dimo666
    The guide was a very helpful companion on the road to Hana. Good narration, but helpful observations. No problems with GPS as some reviews I had see. Was with us the whole way. My teenage kids even enjoyed it (that’s a rarity). The ride back was Hawaiian history which was interesting, but a review of what we were passing again would have been good.
