    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

    By mehrbears
    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!!!

    By Momma bird sings
    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

    By Best alarm eater
    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!!!!!
  • Used at Big Bend National Park and Loved It

    By Melanee B.
    My family recently visited Big Bend National Park and used this app. We got so much more out of the experience thanks to this app. It is filled with interesting facts and relevant information to your experience. Awesome that it works when there is no cell service-dice coverage in National Parks is al and spotty. Highly recommend!! Now you just need to include a selection for the National Mall in Washington, DC!
  • Kolob Canyon

    By bikeaddict
    Paid $15 for the Zions guide to use while doing the 5-mile drive through Kolob Canyons (a Northwestern isolated segment of the park). While likely not a ton to cover, there was virtually no helpful information provided. Nothing about the history, the geology, the names of the peaks we could see, etc. We’ve traveled extensively and love to listen to audio guides while traveling (and have downloaded from several competitors). This was the most disappointing and was absolutely of no value for our Kolob visit.
  • Best road trip app ever

    By cutexy
    What I great app, used four of the guides. Give us all the best places to stop at. Was awesome that it know when we back tracked and didn’t reply the same information over and over again. Didn’t have time to see everything the app had to show so I’ll be back in the parks again. Sometime I wish it had more information to talk about but I know it’s a fine line between being enjoyable and bugging the hell out of you. I think they nailed that line well, give us time to talk about the things it had to say in between. Another thing I had trouble with and this is more of an iPhone issue. If you play music in the back round with lyrics it makes it hard to hear the voice. Would be nice if the music could be muted but we just switched to Jazz and enjoyed the rest of the road trip. At the end I could be any happier with it.
  • National Park touring

    By Annandaleamy
    I downloaded this app and purchased a years use for $29.99 (the app is free but not the guides - $19.99 ea (unlimited use) or the one year plan which allows unlimited guides) for a trip into both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. It's an awesome resource to use while driving the park - it follows you around, relaying interesting facts, recommended stops, hikes, worthwhile "detours" etc - and it's all based on where you are in the park! We would have missed so much if we didn't have the guides. It plays thru your Bluetooth, car accessory system, or phone and doesn't need cell service to operate. DEFINITELY WORTH EVERY PENNY!
  • This is a wonderful app.

    By Jagmoor
    We used this app today at Yosemite NP and I’m only sorry we didn’t have it when we toured Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Extremely useful accurate information both background and history and current data. Interfaces beautifully with our GPS and the built in maps worked well too. The app is like having your own personal tour guide but rather than share with many others you have the use for you and your traveling companions. We intend on upgrading to a subscription when we go to Zion later this year.
  • Absolutely worth it!

    By J976
    If you visit National Parks in the west, YOU NEED THIS APP! We've been to Yellowstone close to a dozen times. We saw something about Just Ahead on Facebook and decided to try it out on our last trip in August. IT WAS AWESOME!!! We learned SO MUCH!! We named our guide Bob and listened to him all through the park. They even have a route for I15 for your next drive to California (we drive from Utah to CA quite a bit) And we'll be using the Long Beach tour on our next trip! It's a more expensive app, but totally worth it. Even the kids loved it!
