We're here to help you find yourself. (Literally.)
There are different maps and ways of getting directions within the app. One uses Hawaii Revealed's built-in map. The other uses your devices' default map program (usually Google Maps or Apple Maps).
*Note: If you plan on using your device's map for turn-by-turn directions, we recommend you download the offline version of the map for the island you will be visiting. (Our map is already downloaded but doesn't support turn-by-turn directions at this time.) Instructions for downloading offline Google maps can be found here. Apple maps does not seem to have this function yet.
The Hawaii Revealed Map
The in-app map can be accessed by tapping the map icon found in the upper right-hand corner of the screen (next to the search icon).
If there is a location associated with the page/information you are viewing in the app, tapping this icon will bring up its location in the in-app map.
The more specific the information you are viewing, the more specific the information on the map will be. The image on the left shows the map when the map icon was tapped from the main "Sights" section. Locations of all points mentioned in all the sights then appear on the map. On the other end of the spectrum, the individual restaurant "808 on Main" is all that is displayed when the map icon was tapped within the review.
There is a location icon along the right side of the map near the bottom that will show your location on the map when tapped (make sure location services/GPS are turned on).
We also offer a search option directly from the map. If you're looking for a place you know the name of (I just know there was that great restaurant in Kihei, but I can't remember where in Kihei), you can just type in the name into the search bar and find its exact location on our map.
The other method of using the app to find a location is the Directions tool. This uses your device's default map to give turn-by-turn directions from your location to your destination.
The toolbar along the bottom of the screen displays the buttons "Favorites", "Add to Planner", "Directions" and "Feedback". "Directions" can also be found in the pop-up window within the app's map. The option to get directions also appears in the pop-up window of the app map, seen below.
Find Directions in the toolbar... ...and in the app map.
The in-app map does not support turn-by-turn directions. Instead, when you press the "Directions" button, the location you are looking for is sent to your phone's default map app. You can then use the turn-by-turn direction GPS service in your phone to help you get to your desired location. Many locations, especially trail heads, are not directly on navigable roads. Your phone's map should still get you to the closest road/route to access the trail.
