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.

  • Great app, worth the money!

    I'm not one to write reviews, but I just had to give my vote of support for this app. It worked perfectly, clips played at exactly the right time depending on our location, and were filled with good information. We had it going through the Bluetooth in our car stereo so it was easy for everyone to hear. We enjoyed being able to go at our own pace and spend as much or as little time at each location as we wanted. It was well worth the $10, much better than paying $35 per person for a bus tour where you are herded with a bunch of people you don't know and don't get to choose how much time to devote to each stop. I would definitely recommend it.
  • Informative and easy!

    This app was a great supplement to the auto tour! $10 beats the audio cd you get in the visitor center for $30. You get about 1-2 minutes of info for each of the 16 tour stops + some more in between as you drive. Those who claimed it didn’t work must not have allowed their phone to track gps location like the directions say.
  • Just right

    Did the museum and then downloaded this app to do the auto tour. Just let it go and automatically started the next tour spot when we got there. No issues playing over Bluetooth in the vehicle. Great and very informative! Highly recommended! Wouldn’t spend the $$$ for the bookstore one.

    I went with my family to the Gettysburg battlefield and I have to say usually hanging out with my family is a bit of a chore but this app really brought the battlefield to life and made it a fun experience for all of us. The sounds that play as you drive through areas and the videos made it feel like a virtual reality experience. It was almost like a scavenger hunt too in that we wondered what we’d discover next as we drove to each spot. My family didn’t fight at all because the app kept us all entertained. And I liked that it was self paced and we didn’t have to travel with a big crowd and tour guide. Highly recommend this, great for all ages.

    I used the app while traveling with family, and it worked perfectly. It was very helpful, and made me and my family take more advantage of everything there was to see and visit in Gettysburg. I also believe the price of the app is fair considering all it allows you to do.
  • Way better than I expected!

    I usually read all the reviews for apps before I purchase them, especially the ones that cost this much. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t enjoy this experience but I loved the app! I’ve been to Gettysburg a bunch of times, with kids and without kids, walking and tour bus... But this was a very cool tool that allowed for freedom of movement but still related the historical information! I REALLY APPRECIATED THE GPS TRACKER! At first I thought I had to figure out all the details and tracks to play myself, but this really is a self-guided tour! Thanks so much!
  • Great appLocation for personalized tour!

    Using this app provides an inexpensive, informative, and easy method for to finding your way around the battlefield. Much easier and more fun then leafing through a book while driving or walking. It’s full of information, easy to use, and a great bargain for the money. Especially fun for family use!
  • Worth the money

    Pleasantly surprised by the app and by the tour itself! I felt empowered by the ability to go at our own pace and experience Gettysburg in the morning, afternoon or evening.
  • Really Informative

    I tend to go on trips along and try to save money where I can. This app was just what I needed to explore Gettysburg. I love that each site has a YouTube video linked where you can see a reenactment of what happened. Extremely helpful when trying to visualize. I’m from MS and wanted to learn about what happened in Gettysburg. This app definitely made it more clear and enjoyable. I would recommend it.
