  • The best way to enjoy road trips through national parks!!!

    I can’t say enough great things about this APP and shared it everywhere we stopped to enjoy scenery, hikes etc. It’s like having a tour guide sitting right next to you, telling you all about what you’re about to see, it’s history and/or to help you choose a route you’re about to take. If you’re approaching a tourist attraction, it tells you how far you’ll need to drive or walk to it and time you should allow yourself to explore it. It is beyond amazing and I get excited every time I share it. My radio does tune down so all I hear is the guide and in such a pleasant voice! Honestly, if I could give it 10 STARS, I would. I downloaded all the parks and look forward to going back to some of these places I visited without this APP to see what I missed! Do yourself a BIG favor when traveling to these parks and download this APP “first!” You will be glad you did! I truly hope more locations are added to this APP.

    Love the option for offline use as some areas of travel had less than suitable phone connectivity. Map within the context of the audio was very nice feature. Initial purchase posted on the app store, but was not reflected within the app, so I could not download my guides. Contacted customer service (on a weekend), and I received very timely and superior response and resolution for my issue.
  • Wonderful App and Great Customer Service

    We purchased the Just Ahead app annual subscription. We used it the last few days and visited three parks in Utah. It is absolutely amazing, and gave so much additional information about the geological formation of the park, wildlife, various trails to enjoy, and gave us point by point directions as to where to drive and stops to make along the way. Can’t say enough good things about this app. The customer service is incredible as well. I had a little difficulty downloading the app to begin with and got immediate customer service help when I requested it. Way to go Just Ahead!! Five stars for sure!!
  • Audio snippets repetitive

    On our 2 hour drive up from Sedona to the Grand Canyon we heard several of the same audio snippets repeated again and again... to the point it was comical. Seemed like they needed more material and were just repeating things to fill in the drive.. Certainly not worth the cost for $20. Used GyPsy in the past at Yellowstone and much prefer that ap to this one. Will be asking for my money back.

    Used this in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons last summer. The entire family agrees that this app was one of the highlights of the trip. Seriously, we talked about this app along with the other sites after our trips was over. It enhances the value of your trip. Just open it up and drive. It will point out what you need to see and give you a slice of the history. You will have to buy the appropriate guide for where you are visiting but it is worth it! Enjoy. BTW, I read in another review about the issue of the music playing in the background. I deleted the music app during our stay, and then reinstalled after the trip. That solved the problem.
  • AMAZING APP!!!

    Love this app!!! Gives fabulous information and “in the know” information about the area you choose- we used Big Bend and Joshua Tree- both were amazing- like having your own private guide!! We listen on a portable speaker. Highly recommend👍👍👍👍👍
  • Great way to enhance the parks app

    We tried out the app on a recent visit to Death Valley National Park... very happy we did. The drive is beautiful but having audio to fill in details about the park made the visit so much more enjoyable. We decided to go ahead and order an annual pass to visit more parks this summer. Looking forward to the next adventure.
  • Awesome guide!!!

    We downloaded the Death Valley guide a couple of years ago, the narration was outstanding. We learned about places that we wouldn't have normally learned about if we didn't use this app! Were headed to Grand Canyon, Bryce and many more parks right now. Definitely getting the package. Thank you for an outstanding guide, it’s better than a Disneyland tour! Five stars, Highly recommended!
  • What an amazing app, NP visitors....you will love this

    Like everyone else we buy all kinds of apps that ‘sound’ useful in the promotional information. On a trip towards RMNP we came across Just Ahead and said let’s try it, thinking it would be another app relegated to the scrap pile after a disappointing trial - wow! We were wrong. We research NP visits and this app is an invaluable addition if you are driving to, and through one of the parks included in the list. Excellent historical and scientific information about our NPs, works without cell service, THIS APP TELLS YOU WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND WHEN TO STOP FOR THE BEST VIEWS!!!! finally an app that is worth it - we’ve since used it in Smoky Mountains NP - just great for explaining the geology, forest and bird species, waterfalls and streams and more. My only complaint - why hasn’t Greg included more NPs? GET GOING GREG!!!!!
