Next-Generation GPS Receiver & Datalogger for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad
The Bad Elf GPS Pro was designed specifically for pilots, boaters, and other outdoor enthusiasts based on feedback we've collected since we launched the original dock-connected Bad Elf GPS back in 2010. We didn't want to launch yet another generic external Bluetooth GPS receiver like those on the market today — so we're not. Instead, we packed a ton of great next-generation features into a small, rugged, and affordable package:
Connect up to 5 devices at a time via Bluetooth The real-time GPS data from a single GPS Pro can be used by up to 5 devices simultaneously – any combination of supported iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch devices. This is great for:
Jet pilots: the entire crew can share the data from a single GPS Pro sitting on the glareshield or in the side window. Or share your GPS data with passengers in the cabin so they can follow the flight on their own iPads.
General aviation pilots: use your iPhone or iPod touch as a backup for charts on your iPad, switching instantly if needed without re-pairing or connecting.
Road trips: the whole family can share the GPS data from a single GPS Pro.
Great product, easy to use and very accurate. Syncs right away to my Ipad.
Works as described. Bluetooth pairs easily with Ipad mini 5th gen. I use it with IFly on my ipad mini with wifi. No internet is needed in flight when you preload IFly maps and use BadElf GPS. If internet is needed, a cell phone works at a wifi hotspot for the ipad mini.
I bought this god to replace a lost Dual. This one is by far the best, conpact never loses signal and works with all the apps.
Bought this for flying with Foreflight and have used it three times and it is fantastic. Gives me 5m accuracy in the air and a long-lasting battery even in the cold. I cannot say enough good things about it! Great starter for using Foreflight.
This was bought as a gift for my son. Shipping was quick and product arrived as promised. I have used the older version which works great.
