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.

We recently drove from Vancouver to Calgary and Vancouver to Whistler and used the Gypsy app on my smart phone. This was an invaluable part of our trip. GyPSy told us all the history, how the landscape was formed and the best part, GyPSy also told us what were the must do stops, how long the stops would take and why we should stop there. GyPSy also gave us alternative stops along the way which you could choose to do if time permitted. All up it was such a fantastic addition to our trip! The cost per map is minimal and it is easy to use.

We have just returned from two weeks driving from Vancouver through the rockies and back through Kelowna. The apps were great. We saw more than we would without them and only used our conventional GPS when it was not available. Heading now to Maui and I have already downloaded the next apps

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.

Hello,
We have recently returned from a driving tour around the Rocky Mountains - Vancouver to Whistler, through Prince George to Jasper, then Lake Louise, Calgary, Banff, Kamloops and back to Vancouver! We downloaded Apps on to my iPhone, and WOW! It was so worth the little money for 6 Apps! Once downloaded (which I did from Australia before we left) we didn't need to have the Mobile Data or Data Roaming on at all. We had a conventional GPS, but this little machine gave us hints and invaluable information along the way, making it an enjoyable drive along roads and we were able to take side trips which we would never have known about!

So if travelling along those routes in a car, download some apps or hire the unit as a GPS! Well worth the small amount paid for a high "free" bit of enjoyment!

My wife and I hired the GyPSy Guide in Vancouver for our tour from Vancouver, Kelowna, Banff, Jasper, Sun Peaks, Whistler & back to Vancouver. We found the guide invaluable, did not miss a highlight and would never have known where to stop at sightseeing points of interest without it.
It is not a conventional GPS. The research that must have been done to obtain the commentary must have taken years. In a nutshell, do not attempt to do The Rocky Mountains without GyPSy.
