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 application from my iPad has been a great addition to touring the sacred battlegrounds of Gettysburg. Being able to witness the fields as they were back in the 1860s has brought tears to my eye. The battle came alive in the palm of my hand. This is application is something all Civil War buffs should purchase and use while touring the sacred ground of Gettysburg.

    Only half of the audio clips worked in the app. Don’t waste $10.
  • Great App!

    This is a bargain for $10! Skip the expensive CD and tours. Hook the app to your car Bluetooth and enjoy the tour with your friends and family. Worked perfectly!
  • Just what I was looking for!

    Not sure how old the tech is that some of the reviewers were using, but I had zero problems with the GPS connection. Everything worked as advertised. Great app!
  • Agree with all other positive reviewers

    Just finished the auto tour today and the app worked brilliantly. Hooked up iPhone to Bluetooth on the RV stereo and it guided us through the whole thing without us having to mess with the phone. App is perfectly priced considering the way overpriced audio CD at the visitor center ($30 as of today). I’m sorry but I’d expect an actual human tour guide for that price. If you follow the auto tour signs starting from the visitor center you’ll have a great experience. I saw some people refer to pics and videos but we didn’t mess with any of that. The audio tour and our own eyeballs were all we needed. Thanks for a great alternative to the pricey options at the visitor center.

    I heard from the creator that the maker of the battlefield CDs has been giving fake, negative reviews to this app. I was curious so decided to try it out for myself when my family drove to Gettysburg for the day and downloaded the app to tour the battlefields. We synced it up to our Bluetooth and it was like having our own personal tour guide! I highly recommend this app for an in-depth experience that allows a more immersive and comprehensive tour.

    Not sure what is up with the low reviews but I had to come back and say this was amazing for $10. So much better to go at our own pace and not stuck in a bus with other people. The app provides info automatically by detecting your location and the music is great. We did end up losing the route for the last 3 stops and I had to navigate there with Google and then the audio caught up, but besides that is was perfect.
  • Not worth the money

    This app is beyond awful. The GPS doesn’t not keep up with the Audio. The audio plays the same things over and over again. Do not spend the $10, you and your family/friends are better off walking the battlefield and reading the signs than spending $10 on a junky app!

    This app was so fun! It was our first time in Gettysburg and we wanted to see the major sights without having to take a tour bus. This app gave a ton of info - more than the free brochure from the park, and we found the music really set the mood. We felt like we were on a luxury private tour in our own car. The GPS worked perfectly and automatically played the appropriate audio track as we approached each site. I wish there were more apps like this for other destinations. Well worth the $10.
