How It Works
Get the Full Story
Just Ahead audio guides are written by expert authors and narrated by professionals. You simply drive, while Just Ahead informs and entertains you.
As you drive in your car or travel by train or bus, Just Ahead takes you on a guided tour. It uses GPS to know exactly where you are and what to say. Imagine you’re cresting a hill and in front of you is a beautiful sight. You’re wondering what it is. That’s when Just Ahead shares with you an exciting story about what you’re looking at.
Many of the most beautiful places in the world don’t have mobile phone service. Just Ahead is designed to work wherever you are, even without WiFi or a cell signal. Just be sure to download your guide before you go on your trip.
Don’t you hate it when you try to use the maps on your smartphone and they don’t work because there’s no mobile phone service? No worries. Each Just Ahead guide comes bundled with an offline version of the maps you need, even without Internet access.
Just Ahead guides are written by expert authors and filled with fascinating stories of history, geology, and wildlife. You can’t read and drive. It’s crazy, illegal, and will probably make you sick. Let us guide and inform you as you drive.
Just Ahead can also help you avoid getting lost by suggesting directions. Just Ahead tells you why you should turn or not, what you should do after a turn, and recommends the best direction to take if there are multiple route options. It’s like having a professional tour guide in the car with you.
Every time we go on a trip, we stress out about when to go, where to stay, what to see, etc. Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone with you who had been on that exact trip countless times? Sharing tips and tricks before you even leave your house? Just Ahead does exactly that.
We get you there and back
Just Ahead tells you everything you need to know about your destination. But we also know that there are a lot of miles between home and the park, or between this park and the next. That’s why we cover all the common routes to and from your destination. No matter which route you choose, we’re with you, telling you stories along the way.
We at Just Ahead are working to build the most comprehensive series of audio guides for the whole world. Wherever you’re traveling, we want to be there.

What People Are Saying
“I really like how we didn't need a signal since we were out of range, and also how it knew where we were and gave us info for the things right in our view!”
— Laurie G.
“Holy cow! Just got back from my Death Valley trip and I can't believe how great the app was along the journey. Not only did it guide us to hikes and places we might have (easily) overlooked, but gave us perspective of the park that allowed us to appreciate it on a whole new level (history, points of interest, flora/fauna, etc.).”
— Jesse Forest
★★★★★ “…great on-demand tour information about the park and really opened up the experience….”
— iTunes Reviewer
★★★★★ “This is one of the best apps I've ever used. Exploring Joshua Tree Park with this app was excellent. It even distinguished between the direction of driving and told different information for each direction.”
— iTunes Reviewer
“I never knew the desert was so alive!”
