** This app works OFF-LINE while you are touring. There is no need to have a network or wireless connection.

Once downloaded, this tour REQUIRES NO DATA to operate and activate, so you won’t incur roaming or data charges. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A CELLULAR NETWORK CONNECTION TO TOUR!! You will not incur any data roaming charges to use this tour, even if you are from outside the USA. Works Off-line and with Data Roaming turned OFF.

Professional tour guides have filled the guide with interesting and entertaining stories, loads of tips and advice on what to do and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 456 commentary points as we drive tall over Maui. It’s just like driving around with a local expert.

Note that this tour does not have commentary on the "back side" of Haleakala. We do not provide commentary this way because most rental car companies do not allow their rentals cars to be taken on this route.

Just download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home, your resort 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 will block the download because of size - so its IMPORTANT to download over a Wi-Fi network.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you travel.

GyPSy Guides are Hawaii's favorite drive touring apps.


++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life - we strongly recommend taking a car charger.

iPad users - If your iPad is wireless-only model - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function - WiFi-only models do not contain GPS hardware. Any iPhone will activate just fine. For automatic commentary activation on an iPad, your model must be a "Wi-Fi + Cellular" model - though connection to a network is not required.
