Before we went to the Canadian Rockies last August I heard about this app called Gypsy Guides so I downloaded it to my iPhone and iPad. Once we got to Banff and went for our first drive, we turned it on. And we were hooked immediately! The narration is fantastic!
We used numerous of these guides in Banff, on our way to Moraine Lake & Lake Louise, and then up to Jasper. The narration gives you just enough detail and info to make your drive so much more pleasurable and gives you very interesting facts about what you are passing at that time.
We used it on my iPad mainly. It doesn't cost a cent to run either as it works on GPS location only. We had the iPad with flight mode turned on, so there was no cellular coverage or wifi or anything. It worked like a dream!
Would we recommend the GyPsy Guides? MOST DEFINITELY!!!
