At each of the National Park Service’s 16 Auto Tour Stops you can: -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.

App Reviews

  • Don’t believe negative review scammers—app was phenomenal!

    I heard from the creator that the maker of the battlefield CDs has been giving fake, negative reviews to this app. I was curious so decided to try it out for myself when my family drove to Gettysburg for the day and downloaded the app to tour the battlefields. We synced it up to our Bluetooth and it was like having our own personal tour guide! I highly recommend this app for an in-depth experience that allows a more immersive and comprehensive tour.
  • Awesome

    Not sure what is up with the low reviews but I had to come back and say this was amazing for $10. So much better to go at our own pace and not stuck in a bus with other people. The app provides info automatically by detecting your location and the music is great. We did end up losing the route for the last 3 stops and I had to navigate there with Google and then the audio caught up, but besides that is was perfect.
  • Not worth the money

    This app is beyond awful. The GPS doesn’t not keep up with the Audio. The audio plays the same things over and over again. Do not spend the $10, you and your family/friends are better off walking the battlefield and reading the signs than spending $10 on a junky app!
  • Interactive, Fun App

    This app was so fun! It was our first time in Gettysburg and we wanted to see the major sights without having to take a tour bus. This app gave a ton of info - more than the free brochure from the park, and we found the music really set the mood. We felt like we were on a luxury private tour in our own car. The GPS worked perfectly and automatically played the appropriate audio track as we approached each site. I wish there were more apps like this for other destinations. Well worth the $10.
  • Worst app I've used

    Would not recommend this to anyone! Half the stops don't work, not worth using if it was free! Keep searching!

    This app should have been priced at $1.99. You will get more information from the free brochure at the visitor center. This app only has limited information about 16 of the sites and neglects most of the major ones. The only reason it may be worth $1.99 Is for the sometimes useful GPS application for those unfamiliar with the battleground.
  • Love the experience

    I loved the audio commentary in this tour. The audio played automatically and the whole family got a guided tour of Gettysburg. Awesome!
  • Does not work

    Audio tracks don't work. It goes to short YouTube videos instead of audio tracks and those aren't great given spotty cellphone coverage in the area. Also, there is no GPS triggering. Rip-off
  • Complete waste of money

    The "content" of this app is so weak, the free brochure from the visitor's center was more informative. There was less than 20 minutes of audio content and some of it was inaccurate. Any one of the CDs sets in the visitor's center would be at least an hour and more like 2+ since they had multiple discs.
