GreatGuide have established themselves as the world leaders in location based (GPS) commentary systems. Our unique algorithms know exactly where the vehicle or visitor is and automatically decides what content to play or present. The proven reliability and consistency of this “automatic” play has enabled us to expand across the globe.

GreatGuide - WiFi

Our wifi audio guided system is developed in such a way that it enables tourists to use their own smartphone or tablet for listening to the audio-guide, in the language of their own choice, without the need to install anything. 

We have developed a system that creates a local Wifi-network in a boat or bus. We connect this system to a GPS, which is used to trigger the audio based on the position of the boat or bus. This means that even when the route is changed, the visitor will get the right information on the right spot at the right moment.

What makes the system unique is that users do not have to install an app to use the audioguide; they only have to connect to the Wifi-network on the boat or bus. They are then automatically redirected to a portal page, and from there on to the web-based audio guide. 

We offer the content as a web-app. This gives the same experience as a real app, except that visitors do not have to download or install anything before getting started. It is very easy to get connected and ensures that guests can start using the audio guide straight away.

  • unique Wifi-based audio solution via the mobile phone (Bring Your Own Device)
