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.

GyPSy guided our trip to Hana, Lahaina and other places in Maui, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. There's so much to see on the road to Hana that the guide helped us prioritize our stops. The guide was obviously written by pros at the road, since it seemed to answer every question as it came up on the... More

We love this app! We used it for our road trip to Hana. It gave us step-by-step directions and where to stop and not to stop. I couldn't imagine our trip without it!!!

I had read about this product before our trip to Maui and had read the great reviews. We got the product and really enjoyed it on the Road to Hana and the drive to the Volcano. Even riding around Wailea and other non-tourists spots the commentary was interesting and useful. My only initial complaint was that when you first start... More

Thanks for your feedback Jim. We do understand this drive is not for everyone and have have two commentary points ‘warning’ people of the narrow, winding and one lane sections along the 340. One suggested turnaround point is just after Honolua Bay, and the second is at the viewpoint for Kahakuloa. Here, we suggest 3 options; we recommend a particular... More

Worth the money. Great tour with inside knowledge. Just be aware that you will need to know a little about the general layout of the island landmarks. We ended up on wrong tour, when you buy the full island tour you don't have the option to pick exactly what you want to aim for. The tour just starts wherever you... More

I purchased the iPhone version of the full Maui guide by GyPSy. It was fantastic. I loved having it for our drives around the island. It gives a lot of information about the island, the people, the history and the sights. And it tells you when to turn where for what. I really learned a lot about Maui and her... More
