The Voicemap app was easy to use. There were a couple of turns that we missed along the way, but the drive was beautiful and historical info interesting.

Dennis_G

It was interesting, it just didn’t work very well. We’ve done others like this (Shaka guide) which was so much better.

Beth_Y

The preliminary directions did not prepare me for how to handle the app while driving, so I wasted a lot of time pulling over to fool around with the phone... and then still not really always catching all of the info. We eventually gave up and just drove to the final location without listening to most of the tape.
