Description

Gettysburg Driving Tour now has over 1.5 hours of audio so that you can hear stories and music at each of the 16 stops as well as on the drive to and from each stop. Drive through Gettysburg and into history with Gettysburg Tours. Watch live action battle scenes that help you imagine real events on Gettysburg’s open fields. Gettysburg Tours isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. If you do not allow the app to track your location, the app will show your location as the last location your app was at and the GPS triggers will not work automatically. At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can: -GPS triggered audio that plays automatically as you drive -Watch battle videos specific to your location -View custom maps -See historically accurate and realistic paintings -Get directions to the next stop You can zip through the park quickly by pausing at a limited number of key stops, or spend more time and experience all 16. It’s fun, flexible, and easy to use. The audio in the app will trigger and play as you drive by historic battle fields. Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    This was a fantastic app that took you on the audio tour of Gettysburg. It has a few videos too. Loved the GPS feature. Well worth the $!

    Doesn't work correctly with iphone 8's plus running iOS 12.1.4. Settings screen display is "overlapped" and locked, no changes can be made, and feature where app tracks you on the battlefield doesn't work. All in all, a waste of my money, & very disappointing. I recommend buying a guide book-they always work!!
  • Worth it!

    Great app. This hits the highlights of the battlefield tour at Gettysburg. The family enjoyed the content. YouTube links and music were great. We will continue to use this tour with friends coming in from out of town. Make sure you allow locations always. Next, cell service can be a little spotty in such a rural area, but that is not the fault of the app. Turn on the app and head to the first stop. The map from the visitors center and this app made a enjoyable tour.
  • Just a little short of perfect.

    It was rough to find out where to start. We ended up just doing the last 5 parts and giving up. Great idea, with a little more work, it’s a wonderful idea.
  • Money well spent

    Tried using the app on our tour. Followed the instructions on how to use it, but the app never worked properly. Ended up using the auto tour CD from 30 years ago. At least that's reliable.
  • Absolute crap don’t waste your money

    Did not work, the markers wouldn’t play. No instructions, or clear way to use the app. It kept repeating the same fact and telling me to press the overview button which did not exist. Might as well have just set $10 on fire. Total waste of money.
  • Great App for a customized experience!

    I downloaded this app after a close friend told me about their trip to Gettysburg. I’ve done a guided tour before at Gettysburg and found it exhausting to stop at suggested spots, but did not want to miss out on the history. It took about 5 hours to get through. This time around I went with a group of visitors who wanted to see and learn everything about Gettysburg but were on a strict time frame. The app helped us get to some major landmarks, while still allowing us to hear about the sites we decided to drive through. Great app, would recommend to visitors interested in learning and experiencing Gettysburg in an efficient way.
  • Great App, GPS worked great

    This is my first review but wanted to write this since I almost passed on buying the app due to some negative comments from others - this app was flawless, once we started we never had to do another prompt, it took us to every stop, gave great comments, enhanced our experience - would recommend this app to anyone that wanted to drive Gettysburg in their own car
  • Good way to hop around Gettysburg
