“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). ”
You can buy the $30 version from the gift shop OR you can buy this one and have money left for lunch. This app was great. The narration and embedded videos are awesome, and the gps function worked flawlessly. Our family of six had a great time learning history on the Gettysburg battlefield. Five stars.
I would recommend this app. It worked perfectly and the audio triggered at key points of interest along the way. Be sure to select the auto play option. We did this with 3 kids and enjoyed stopping along the way to dive more into this historic battlefield.
