The Maui GPS Tour Guide is a virtual tour guide that talks to you as you drive around Maui. The Tour Guide knows exactly where you are and alerts you to hidden beaches, scenic lookouts, historic sites, hikes, movie locations, farmers markets and many other Maui attractions.
This app is slick. It tells you about your surroundings and where to find attractions.
While driving the road to Hana the guide repeatedly reminded us about our time and which stops were best to make.
Tried several similar apps for Maui and this was the best.
The Maui GPS Tour Guide is a virtual tour guide that talks to you as you drive around Maui.
Using the GPS built into the iPhone, the Tour Guide knows exactly where you are and alerts you to hidden beaches, scenic lookouts, historic sites, hikes, farmers markets and many other attractions.
The Tour Guide covers all areas of Maui: The road to Hana and beyond; Haleakala National Park and surrounding area; West Maui including a historic Lahaina walking tour; South Maui from Kihei to La Perouse Bay; Central Maui and Iao Valley State Park.
The application also includes comprehensive beach and snorkeling guides, weather and surf forecasts, and Maui background information for tourists including detailed ocean safety guidelines.
The Tour Guide works without cell phone coverage because it uses your iPhone's GPS. International customers can turn off data roaming. A network connection is used, when available, to update the map, but this map can be cached before heading out on a trip.
If you have an iPad please note that only the WiFi+Cellular models include a GPS, and the Tour Guide will work on those models.
