Drive through Gettysburg and into history with Gettysburg Tours. Watch live action battle scenes that help you imagine real events on Gettysburg’s open fields. 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.

Ratings and Reviews
We used this on a day when the visitor’s center was closed due to the Coronavirus (Tues & Weds). It worked well for the most part. It narrated based on our GPS and we used it via Bluetooth so everyone could hear. The only part that was very confusing was when heading towards stops 13 & 14, as you go through the visitors center parking area, it repeats the beginning narration. That made us think we made a wrong turn but eventually we saw on the app that was to be ignored. We didn’t figure where to go after those stops but it was late in the day and it was our fault I’m sure. I used this in an iPhone 11 so the X to close the videos was cut off at the top but if you know it’s there on the top right you could find it. Was worth the money and was informative. I’ll go back again some day & use it again and hopefully reach the end of the tour.
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!
