The Gettysburg Driving Tour App isn’t just a static map and pictures; it’s a fully immersive and interactive experience. You MUST allow the app to track your location for the GPS triggers to work properly. Press "Allow" when prompted after downloading the app.
Your iPad or tablet must be cell data capable Or it must be a smart phone. WiFi only iPads will not work for the on-site gps tour.
At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can:
-Experience GPS triggered audio that plays automatically as you drive
-Watch battle videos specific to your location
-View custom maps
-See historically accurate and realistic paintings
-Get directions to the next stop
You can zip through the park quickly by pausing at a limited number of key stops, or spend more time and experience all 16. It’s fun, flexible, and easy to use. The audio in the app will trigger and play as you drive by historic battle fields.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Good, Basic Tour of the Battlefield
Living in Gettysburg for 33 years, we’ve driven the battlefield many times. The only tour we’ve done was the double decker bus years ago. We are thinking of moving and I wanted to do a battlefield tour before that happens. The best way to see it is to hire a licensed battlefield guide through the visitor center. They go into great detail, are extremely knowledgeable, and know the battlefield like the back of their hand. From what I understand, the gentleman that is your “host” on the app is a licensed battlefield guide. We are not huge history buffs, and didn’t really learn anything new, but enjoyed the ride through the beautiful battlefield. It just never gets old. The app gives a good overview and the price is right!
Skip the audio tour in the gift shop and do this instead
We first considered buying the $30+ audio guide in the gift shop next to the museum. That price seemed unnecessarily high, so I searched for an alternative. So glad I did! This app worked perfectly with the GPS; it updated automatically based on our location so it was totally hands-free for driving, and went through our aux cord with no issue. Lots of good info and detail. The only tiny flaw was that once or twice, the GPS signals were close enough that we were only halfway through the first track before it automatically shifted to the next. So I would definitely advise you to park the car just before certain auto tour stops, rather than just after the stops like we did, so that the GPS stays on track. But that was tiny compared to how wonderful this was. It’s so worth it! Download this and save your money!!
I don’t think I’ve ever paid for an app. I’m cheap like that. We went to Gettysburg on a whim and had no idea what we were doing. I found this app and I’m so glad!! We started at the visitors center(I collect things from NPS) and headed out. The GPS kept up with us the entire time. It was spot on with the auto tour markers. Like others mentioned above, the “optional” and “recommended” stops were close to other points of interest, so it didn’t get to finish sharing info before warning us of an upcoming stop. So go slow, pull off, take your time. I wouldn’t even consider it a flaw, just head the warning so you don’t miss things. You can open the app and listen to everything at your own pace later on. I plan to go through and look up the locations they pointed out at a later time. Thanks for this wonderful and very affordable tool!
