New Audio Guide Enhances National Park Vacations –
Just Ahead’s Innovative GPS-Driven Smartphone App
Turns Road Trip Into Richly Narrated Journey
Recently Named ‘Best Travel App’ by the
North American Travel Journalists Association
LONG BEACH, CA, Feb. 26, 2015 – Thanks to a new travel app from Just Ahead (https://www.justahead.com/), smartphone technology can now play a vital role on a vacation into America’s national parks. In fact, it may be just the thing to turn heads away from games, music, and texting and into nature while cruising park roads this summer.
New to the market for 2015, the GPS-powered mobile app turns smartphones into hands-free audio tour guides of the most beautiful places on earth.
Just Ahead’s app and audio guides work even where cell phones, Internet, and Wi-Fi won’t, to stream fun and interesting stories spliced with geography, history, and even driving directions while cruising through a national park.
One example is Just Ahead’s Death Valley National Park audio guide, which recently garnered the Best Travel App award from the North American Travel Journalists Association. This award is due, in part, to the levels of professional travel writing and narration that present the myriad stories of each national park. Content writer and editor Bob Howells has twice won the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Lowell Thomas Gold Award for adventure travel writing.
“Our aim is to give travelers and their families an entertaining and educational travel experience,” underscored Just Ahead founder Gregory Morse. “We think the Just Ahead app and audio guides encourage exploring and getting off the beaten track. You’re engaged at the same time you’re learning.”
Now that Just Ahead GPS Audio Guides are a reality, I wanted to share our back story.
I took my wife and three young kids on a six-week RV road trip last summer. We traveled all around the Southwest and introduced the kids to some spectacular country.
Predictably, we filled the cab of our Toyota Sequoia with a clutter of maps and guidebooks. We figured that whoever was co-piloting would consult them, navigate, and share stories about the sights unfolding outside our windows.
