Hands down the best way to go when visiting Maui. You can go at your own pace and the app offers engaging commentary, perfect directions and a great time. It is so worth the nominal cost! Highly recommed!

Enjoyed the helpful info provided by the guide. It was fun learning a bit while driving and it was reassuring to know we were on the right route, how much further we had to go, etc. We will download these guides for other travel destinations.

I cannot say enough great things about this app. We bought the whole island app but were only planning on using it for the road to Hana. We used it there and so much more. The voice is soothing as well as informative. It allowed us to focus on the scenery instead of constantly looking at a guidebook. We found... More

Not being techy I was sceptical as I didn't want to pay extra (on top of the app fee) for internet fees and roaming charges etc... My husband and I used the app to tour the island of Maui Well worth the app fee! No extra charges!! Our iPad did drain quickly which the app indicates it would (So bring... More

I had so much fun driving around Maui - the road to Hana, Haleakala, the west shore, etc. with the GyPSy ongoing travelogue telling me what I was looking at, when to turn, what's ahead and, in between sites, the history of Hawaii and Maui. Two things made me laugh out loud: when it said that I was welcome to... More

Don't read a map. Don't read a guide book. Look out the window and listen to ALL the info. Don't need to argue with "The Navigator" Timely, accurate, full of practical tips such as "cross the bridge and there is a pull-in to park you car in 100yds". Buy the whole island version.

The directions and history of Maui was well worth the $5.00 download. We had to listening to the narration through the phone speaker so if you had the means to improve that it would be a great help. The only problem we had was a side trip to one of the town we were told to check out but the... More

Came across the advertisement in one of the tourist coupon books, and only downloaded it because it had the "TripAdvisor" recommended seal of approval. Purchased the entire Island of Maui edition, and we used it the full week we were there. Cannot say enough of how this GPS activated app not only guided us, but included lots of useful history...
