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

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 of Canada. 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 159 commentary points available. This tour only follows highway #1 through Yoho and Banff National Parks. For detailed tours within the National Parks, please see our Canadian Rockies tours.

Just 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 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.

>> This tour is only for driving FROM Kamloops TO Lake Louise/Banff. For Lake Louise TO Kamloops, please download that exact tour.

** 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.

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