- Fast and easy-to-use app designed for travelers
Interact through a revolutionary “smart” table of contents that highlights the best beaches, sights and restaurants and makes it easy to focus on what you want. You’re just a tap away from being able to see exactly where anything is on the linked GPS-aware map. Want to make reservations, check hours or learn more about various companies? There are hundreds of links to websites and phone numbers that let you make calls, browse the web or get the information you need—fast.
- Never get lost with a GPS aware map
All GPS information, whether it’s roads, trails or places of interest have been painstakingly gathered by the authors with visitors in mind. So that when you search, for instance, for a zipline tour, you will get the correct place you need to go—just past the 2 mile marker on Hwy 378—not their mailing address in another part of the island. Even if you already have the Maui Revealed book, this self-aware app is an invaluable addition. If you’re out exploring and want to find something to do nearby, or somewhere to eat, just tap the “Locate” button to see where you are on the map, then tap the map to see the guidebook entries for everything around you. The “MapIt” button reveals where you are and where you want to go.
- Customizable search features let you enjoy your trip your way
Trying to find something in particular? Use the powerful search feature to quickly find it. Not sure what you are looking for? Go to the lists of hotels and restaurants, and sort them by category, price, location or rating to help narrow down your choices. Or, check out the lists of Best Bets for interesting recommendations for each part of the island. An extensive Activities section covers everything from ATVs to Ziplines and will give you great ideas about what to do, which companies do it best and which to avoid. Looking for an adventure? Check out the Adventures section for activities that will push your limits.
