Cool app replaces expensive tours

If you’ve got a car (and USB charger for your phone), all you need is this app. We rode through the Volcano national park with this app pointing out all the cool things automatically along the way via GPS (no data needed!).


It allowed us to take our time and stop places we wanted to or skip those we didn’t. Didn’t have to suffer from expensive tours and other tourists in a group. Definitely a must-have…wish there were more downloads for these apps, but I know they are coming soon. Great idea!
