    A Great Way to Experience Yosemite
    CRISTINA_C, Mar 2024
    This self-guided audio tour was one of the best ways to experience Yosemite. PROs: • We were in the comfort and warmth of our own vehicle • We could stop at our leisure and take in the views without feeling rushed • We could very easily go back in the audio and listen to the commentary again if we didn't hear what was said • When we got back on the road, the tour automatically picked up where we left off — They knew exactly where we were based on GPS - even though we were offline (there's no signal in the park.) CONs: • Once we reached the starting point address and pulled over, it was a little unclear what road to get on to begin the tour. The map wasn't showing up on my phone, so we ended up starting on the wrong road. But we went back to the starting point and looked at the printed map the Ranger gave us at the entrance and figured out what road we needed to get on. • There were a few times when the audio did not play when we drove through the numbered "checkpoint" I had to hit "play" manually on the audio. But it eventually picked up and started doing it automatically again. • The only thing I would add would be a better way to match our location on the tour to the printed map provided by the park ranger. Perhaps if they called out what the name of the roads were in the audio so we could figure out where we were more easily. OVERALL, it was a fantastic way to see the park. Highly recommend!!!

    Cristina, thanks for sharing so much detail! This is so helpful for others and me! I am so glad you got to enjoy all the benefits of my self-guided experience :) I'm glad you pointed out the starting point address issue — it was slightly off, so I've already adjusted it. I shouldn't give anyone else problems now. I'll also work on editing some of my story titles to more clearly match the park's map, as you suggested! The only issue I'm not able to reproduce is the audio one. Could you tell me what type of phone you are using? Thanks again!
    Waste of money
    Marissa_B, Jan 2024
    Was way too confusing and did not work at all while in the park. Waste of money! The download also took almost an hour.

    Educational and interesting audio
    gallagherkaren, Oct 2023
    The App was easy to download and gave us detailed directions to the park entrance we chose. I liked the fact that the audio started when we reached entrance to the park. The gos worked well, but a few times the audio skipped and/ or repeated itself. Lots of information was revealed which made the trip more educational. The park itself is memorizing and the audio added to it.
