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.

I decided to my iPad with one without the cellular option. This, of course, means there is no internal GPS. I, therefore, needed another way to determine my position when using aviation navigation Apps. I had had difficulties using the iPads internal GPS when navigating due to shielding from the roof of my aircraft. By placing the Bad Elf in a position with a good view of the sky (and therefore, the satellites) this doesn’t happen. It did take four attempts to get it to pair with my devices, which was a bit irritating. So far QED.

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.

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.
