An innovative way to enhance your road trip, GyPSy Guide is a small device that you plug into your car or RV stereo and it automatically plays commentary on the best things to see and do as they come into view. A team of professional tour guides has filled GyPSy Guide with stories, facts, tips and advice to make sure you don’t miss any of the best attractions and sightseeing. The audio is recorded by real people and plays as you drive, just like listening to the radio.

A good way to get your own personal guided tour that points out highlights that should be visited together with background information on the area and history.
