After purchase, the download code for the app came by email after 12 hours (not 24 hours as described in the text). Installation with it worked fine. On the road, I used the app on most journeys. Everything worked well here too - the information came to the right places and the digressions were a great podcast replacement. Overall was very satisfied.

Wonderful day tour! The sightseeing around the national park, was very beautiful. Great tour guide, and tour company.
