How To Use This App

Set up your phone to play via your car speaker. If you are not sure how to do this here is a How-To video.
It is often best to download the tour at a location where there is good mobile or Wi Fi coverage. During the tour the app will play from your phone so good mobile internet is not needed.
Our audio narration will play automatically at each stop as well as direct you from stop to stop. To do this, the app uses GPS and for it to work correctly check the following items before you start a tour:

ON ANDROID PHONES:

(SCROLL DOWN FOR How to Use on iPHONES and iPADS)

Once the tour has downloaded, select Start Tour:

The screen will show the 1st stop. If you are at the starting location, audio should begin. If it doesn’t, tap the triangle play icon.
Clicking the 3 lines at the top left will bring up a menu of all the STOPS and Direction Points. The actual STOPS are in all CAPS.  Click a STOP to see photos and videos, read the text of the narration and replay the audio.

IF YOU GET LOST, tap the map icon at the top. You will see a map of the STOP you have selected. Tap the 3 dots at the top right and select  Get Directions.
This will bring up your navigation app (Google Maps, Waze, etc) and give you directions to the STOP selected.
If you are curious about the paper airplane icon, clicking it will show you where you are. Clicking it again will give you a compass!
