I would like to give it more stars but can't. First the pass word took for ever. Then the user interface is so complicated. You have to get your email. Download their app , copy and paste, open browser, download another app . Wait email and your password if you get it then when you finally go thru all the hurdles the appnisna web based app. And it's still a bit complicated to use. The audio is neat but complicated. As navigation goes it's hard because you have to use ur own maps it's a plus and bad. More switching between apps. But what bother me.the most was the app is not 24 hours from purchase! It's only till 4 am the next day . So let say if you and your family are leaving in the middle of the day. Your first stop might be a big off and by the time you get there it's late and then you have find a place to rest for the night. You lose the app because you only get to use it to 4am. Instead if you buy it at 3pm and get to use it to 3pm. But you don't. !

This was a surprisingly pleasant audio tour. We didn’t go off the highway to the other stops but what we did see/hear of the tour was great. There were a few issues syncing with our car audio and the app took a while to load whenever we opened it and it did crash a few times but I would still recommend it for the price. It was very informative and I’m glad we had it as a companion on a long drive.
