Unlike the Yellowstone tour this one focused mainly on the road. Glaciers got 3 or 4 minutes but the road construction and other man made structures dominated the talking points. If you're interested in the natural aspects of Glacier National Park, skip this app.
Very good and informational app, and we learned quite a bit about the GTTSR and its construction and some surrounding hikes. Logistically, it has its bugs like having to be run in the foreground with the screen on. Why can't this be run in the background like google maps? This creates unnecessary battery drain so a car charger is 100% necessary. Also, the audio tracks get messed up if you reach a second waypoint while the first waypoint audio is still playing, or if you do switch to a different app while the audio is playing.
I never will app reviews, but this is an unusually stellar app. Did exactly what it says, provides a tour of glacier. Was nearly flawless, just works, very you don't have to do much of anything. Works great offline via GPS, which is essential since glacier doesn't have cell service. I'd recommend putting your phone into airplane mode to preserve the battery. I'll plan to use Gypsy apps on future National Park tours.
Awesome worth every penny I have never done a review for an app before but I'm going out of my way to write this one. The Gypsy guide walks you through all of the highlights and let you decide whether or not you want to stop. It tells you ahead of time so that you have time to decide. I was alone and felt like it kept me company. I did not have cell phone reception and it worked anyway. I guess it uses GPS? Highly recommend.
Learned so much This was like a tour guide in your car. We learned so much we would have missed. We liked it so much we listened to it on the return trip too.
These are great!
