Bad Elf on a winning streak .. .
The small, compact, water-resistant handheld Bad Elf GPS Pro is an Apple-approved accessory that wirelessly connects (via Bluetooth® wireless technology) up to five users of an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to share real time, direct satellite GPS data for display on digital charts and a wide range of other compatible marine apps on board via satellite – anywhere in the world.
Bad Elf GPS does not rely on cell tower assistance to achieve a lock or to determine position. The Bad Elf unit includes a high performance satellite receiver and antenna that receives data directly from the GPS satellites. Locking on to up to 15 satellites, a Bad Elf unit supplies GPS data up to 10 times a second that can be accurate to within 9 feet (2.5 meters) - allowing users to improve their GPS lock on the water beyond cell phone coverage areas. MSRP US $ 179.99.
