Big Island Volcanoes National Park GyPSy Tour iOS App Details

Just Like Having A Tour Guide In Your Car™ for Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island, Hawaii. Plays commentary AUTOMATICALLY as you drive and works OFFLINE (no data or cell required). Don't miss out on the best sights. * Prepared by Professional Tour Guides * 150+ commentary points * Fraction of cost of bus tours or guide books Turn your iPhone or iPad (WiFi + Cellular models only) into a Tour Guide and take your driving tours and sightseeing to a whole new level with the GyPSy Guide™ – GPS Tour from Kona and Kohala to Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii’s Big Island. Commentary plays AUTOMATICALLY as you drive so you don't miss any of the best sights and stories along the way. This tour starts from north the Kohala Coast resorts (Eg Marriott, Hilton, Fairmont) north of airport, or from the Kailua-Kona area. The commentary will play all the way to Volcanoes National Park. When we arrive the tour will tell you about all the best places of interest inside the Park, so you don’t miss a thing. We recommend and early start so you can visit all the tour highlights including: • Punaluu Black Sand Beach • Kilauea Viewpoints • Thurston Lava Tube • Chain of Craters Road • Holei Sea Arch • And many more Its best to drive back to the resorts the same way as you arrived. Most people end up driving home at least part of the way in the dark since it’s a long day of sightseeing. So GyPSy Guide will have all different commentary to keep you entertained for the drive back to your resort. * This app works OFF-LINE while you are touring. There is no need to have a network or wireless connection. 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 the USA. 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 154 commentary points along the drive. It’s just like driving around with a local expert. 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. ** iPad users - please note that WiFi-only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad will work just fine. ++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We strongly recommend using a cigarette lighter (DC outlet) style charger while driving.

    I wasn't sure what I was buying, but after 5 minutes, I knew I had done the right thing. I was driving by myself. The guide was there for me almost turn for turn. History, mythology, sightseeing, it was all there on my radio. It took me from Kona to and through Volcano Natl Park and home again. The ride home was especially fun because the speaker continued his stories throughout the 2 hour ride back to Kona, in the dark. At one point he advised me that a particularly curvy stretch of road was coming up. He said he would be quiet so I could concentrate as I negotiated this section, advising me to slow down and focus. Sure enough, as I got through the last curve, he came on and congratulated me for my safe driving. Of all the info this app imparted, that was the part which most impressed me. It was the best $5 I have ever spent. I want to plan a trip to one of the other destinations Gypsy services just so I can listen to the script for that place. You won't go wrong with the Big Island app.
  • Great guide, fun to listen to

    This tour is included with the Big Island Full tour. I did not know that and ended up buying both and wasted money on this.

    Bought this app for our drive from Kona to the Volcano National Park. It was easy to use and very interesting and informative. It works With your GPS so you don't use data. There is a running commentary about the points of interest and the history of the big island of Hawaii as we drove to the national park. We did not miss a bit of the park using the app. We stayed late at the park to see the volcano glowing and have dinner at the Volcano House. The app was a welcome addition as it kept our interest on the long dark drive home. Well worth the app price. Didn't realize there was an app for the entire island till it was too late because I would have purchased it also
