"Wow, did we ever love "The Rockies" App! We just spent a fantastic week driving through Yoho, Banff & Jasper National Parks, and this audio guide (in tandem with the Yoho App) proved to be a brilliant companion..." – BeanBro (Australia)

"This is the first review I have ever written, but after traveling throughout Banff, Jasper, Yoho, and Kootenay, and using this audioguide every day for 10 days, this is far and away one of the best apps I have purchased. ...The app worked seamlessly on my IPAD, the stories and information triggered by the GPS. I could not recommend this app more." – uclakurt (USA)

"If you are driving in the Banff-Icefields Parkways-Yoho Area I can't recommend this app too highly! Imagine the best possible tour guide sitting right next to you (riding virtual "shotgun") providing timely narration, pointers, and stories as you traverse this extraordinarily beautiful region." - Heraclitus25 (USA)

Developed and recorded by Dave Birrell – a Canadian Rockies author and accredited Professional Guide with the Interpretive Guides Association – your Parks Companion Audio guide features unmatched information about the region.
You get all the interesting stories, facts, and suggested stops for viewpoints, wildlife, short hikes, and points of interest.

Use of the guide, as well as continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. (GPS capability is part of the 3G chipset, and is only present in the 3G iPads.)

Makes a perfect compliment to Canadian Mountain Parks Companion, also available on the App Store.
