This app guided us around the island better than a human tour guide. It even saved us from going to the volcano area without warm clothes! Definitely to be highly recommended.

Wow! Was this App ever helpful on our Maui trip. We've been here several times but brought newcomers this trip. GyPsY was the perfect guide for sites to see and wonderful history and tidbits of info about the island. The suggestions for place, shops and restaurants are great! The commentator does not reveal his name, so we named him Roger.... More

This is one of the best guides I have ever used. Filled with tons of information, Hal (or so we named the voice of our tour guide) was keyed to particular spots along the route. Information ranged from historical to suggested stops and directions back to the resort area and airport. Definitely more than I could get from a guide... More

I love to make my own way whenever I travel-not a fan of getting on and off a bus. But sometimes having guidance does help you make the most of your adventures. We paid $4.99 and downloaded Gypsy Guide for the road to Hana. It was worth twice what we paid. In fact for twice what we paid you could... More

We named our gypsy guide Amos. His voice was so comforting. Don't hesitate. Just buy it. Stop reading my review... Seriously hit "download." Do it! ;-)

Best 9.99 I spent on the trip. Took me all over Maui got more information than a tour guide. Freedom to do as you please and yet don't feel left out. So much info and great suggestions. Just use the aux and have a charger my boys enjoyed it too!

Do not bother with less than G3, but it works great on G4, I loved the short explanations, it gives your drive a meaning.

This is an excellent app worked well with iPhone 5 and an auxillary jack attached to my rental car speakers. It knows where you are in the trip based on your GPS location and the direction of travelling even when you don't have cell phone signals!!! Only thing is it doesn't know the current time so some commentries may not... More

Great App! Used it on the road to Hana in our rental vehicle. Only had a half day before our flight home so it was great to turn around at a distance of our choice and have it adjust to our position to still make it relevant. I would have not liked being on a tour bus on that road.

Purchased gypsy app for Maui. Much of the time it would cut out mid-sentence or not work at all saying it could not find gps signal. Other map app had no problem with gps signal. Great when it worked but disappointed that it didn't work much of the time. Finally got frustrated and gave up.
