  • Fantastic app!

    By Lbluekc
    I rarely review apps but this one deserves my time. We used this the first time in Big Bend, TX during the government shutdown. It was like having a personal tour guide who pointed out several things we would have otherwise overlooked. Additionally it provides a lot of historical information. Because we are traveling for the year, we purchased the unlimited guides. Well worth the money!
  • Buggy App!

    By this_is_a_nickname….
    Let me begin by saying the content is great! Thoroughly enjoyed it. The app itself is low quality and buggy! A couple major things: 1. The design is with low quality images. Everything looks like 1990s design. Hard to imagine the image quality is low even on a small phone screen. 2. The title of the places of interest are cut off! So here we are in a new national park, trying to guess if we are going to Skull Rock or Cactus Garden based on the description. Once you click on a point on the map the top is sliced off. Very annoying and bad for planning. 3. The auto play feature worked for the first time then stopped working altogether. It won’t speak to us when the phone screen is locked and we missed a couple destinations because of it. I had to set my phone to never lock to keep the app working. It worked at the end with the hack but was nonetheless extremely annoying and a battery killer!
  • Amazing app

    Must download if your touring big bend. I would spend $10 for the app at least. Use it the whole time your driving. I am sure it’s amazing for other National parks. Download and give it a try.

    We traveled to Great Smokey Mountains on numerous occasions and thought we knew a lot till we tried the app. Great job on history and details of park. Works great can’t wait to try other parks. Definitely a 5 star app easy to load and super easy to use!
  • Makes our road-trips voyages of discovery

    By Tylerk9
    We love Just Ahead! We found out about it at Painted Desert/Petrified Forest National Park when someone in the parking lot was listening to it, and have used it on all our road trips since. The National Parks tours are great, but we also love some of the more creative guides like the I-15 tour we are enjoying right now. It’s a sad moment when we go someplace that doesn’t have a Just Ahead guide yet.
  • Poor

    Sounded like a great app..but not so. Downloaded for Zion National Park... Very disappointed, guide was superficial and mostly silent...
  • Made our Vacation so Special!

    I would give this 100 stars if I could. We are traveling across the country & have learned so much about the different places we visited. It is much more than just telling you what you are looking at. There are interesting historical stories as well as information about nature & the landscape. The voice is very pleasant & not at all intrusive. After you download the places you purchase it works perfectly with or without cell service. Very highly recommended!
  • Fantastic!!

    Purchased this to tour both Grand Teton & Yellowstone Parks. This was well worth the money. It was like having our own private guide with us. Loved all the history and tips along the way. Looking forward to using this again!!
  • Amazing App for National Parks

    By TELeavit
    Just returned from traveling the Great Plains/Rocky Mountains. Spent 2 weeks & visited 5 National Parks (Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Badlands, Mount Rushmore, & Rocky Mountains NP). This app was amazing! It was like having a tour guide in the vehicle. Worked great thru Bluetooth connection. Starts talking before entering the park & no matter which way or what direction you come in, it knows. Ran route in reverse the following day & did not miss a beat. Need to know where to get gas, visitors center, hotels in park, picnic areas, trails, & even bathrooms, it is here. Let’s you play music when not talking so not constant conversation. Suggests some “must see spots”. You sometimes are able to see things others miss. Would love to see every NP on this app. Every bit worth the annual fee. Told many along the way of the features & benefits of this app as they had nothing like this.
  • Best tour guide ever
