I loved Gypsy guide. It made our trip so much more enjoyable. It worked perfectly and as advertised. The variety and depth of stories was excellent as was the guidance on the routes. The website was also helpful, as was a call I made during my trip planning, to one of their staff. We used the Black Hills, Rushmore, Devils Tower & Badlands National Park Tour version.
The guide knows via GPS where you are on the route and starts guidance/story telling as appropriate. It does it in bite-size chunks so that every few minutes or so it is quiet, allowing us to think and or discuss together what was said. Very well planned indeed.
At only $13 it is an amazing buy. I would have paid 2x or 3x for what it provided. That being said, there were 1 or 2 minor glitches and the one improvement I would like to have made, namely to have it interface with Apple Car Play. The audio itself worked great with my 2022 car’s interface, and picked up whenever it was supposed to and play thru the car’s audio. However, there were times we wanted to look at a map or be sure where we were relative to your talk points, especially for the Custer Park part of the tour. What would have made the product better is if the map it threw up on the iPhone was more clear AND if that came up on the Car Play display. Then I would never have to touch the iPhone.
Besides that one enhancement request, we were exceedingly happy with our purchase. This is a great product.
