This guide was a great addition to our trip. The narration is informative and interesting and occasionally dryly funny. It made the long drives interesting and gave us some context, education, and cultural background for things seen and not seen along the road. It was mostly easy to use, although it tended to disconnect every time I left the car and came back and the auto play had to be restarted (may be related to being on airplane mode). Still it's great value for the money and I highly recommend! We still have a plethora of things to learn from the app on our next trip to Iceland.

It's really convenient when you do a road trip! My husband was driving and I was able to see real time what we were approaching, and listen to some really useful information!! Or I could search in advance, so we were ready when we arrived somewhere! Also it's really great we can connect the mobile with the car's audio, so we can listen from the car's audio. Great work!

We spent last week travelling the ring road in Iceland and the really made all the difference. The information was first class and so many times it 'popped up' just as we wondered about a house, a river or whatever. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting Iceland and cannot think of any improvements to it.

Glad we downloaded this app on our drive to south coast and Jokulrason glacier. It included several spots as well as information animals and the landscapes.

Very good, many points on our route were addressed.
