GPS Pro Bluetooth Data Logger

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.


Large LCD SCreen With Backlight
The GPS Pro features a large LCD screen with backlight that provides great visibility day or night. See your location, speed, heading, altitude, and GPS lock status at a glance. No need to guess the meaning of blinking LED indicators or leave your favorite app to check the status of your GPS receiver.

Extra-Long Battery Life & 10Hz Reporting Rate
The GPS Pro provides a battery life of up to 16 hours when connected to your iOS device via Bluetooth, and supports a GPS reporting rate of 10 times per second (configurable). With the accessory in standalone datalogger mode and Bluetooth turned off, you can expect a battery life of up to 32 hours.

Standalone GPS Datalogger (100+ Hours)
Now you can record your adventures without draining the battery on your iPhone or iPod touch. No need to keep an app running, just start and stop the GPS Pro's datalogger using a simple button press. Discover something cool. Mark your current location as a point of interest (POI) with another button press. At the end of your activity, transfer the log to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to view your trip and share it with friends and family via email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Rugged & Splash-Proof To IPX4 Standards
Don't be afraid to take your GPS Pro along on your next adventure. Compact, rugged, and splash-proof, the GPS Pro will survive the journey and let you show your friends just how amazing that trip was.

    I bought the Bad Elf Pro since I had a vision of using my iPhone in GPS only mode for field work. I have a CDMA iPhone 4. If you turn off the radio, the GPS goes off too. The Bad Elf Pro has allowed me to take my iPhone out into the field and locate myself on custom-made field maps (using a 3rd party app to display geoPDFs). I've used the Bad Elf Pro for two complete field days, in bluetooth mode, without recharging. My iPhone, which is almost two years old, lasted many hours longer than keeping the cellular radio on. I also found that the Bad Elf Pro provided far more accurate positions, right away, as compared to the internal iPhone GPS.My basic usage of the Bad Elf Pro is as follows: * Data log track to know where I've been using my iPhone (or back at the office) and, back at the office, to geotag photos from a quality stand-alone camera * Locate my present location on a custom mapBut an update on Feb 15, 2013, now has numbered Point of Interests (or waypoints). So now it is fully field capable as I can tie field notes (either entered via spreadsheet or an actual field book) to a point of interest and to a position on my data log track. I really look forward to using this feature!I perhaps did test to see just how well the Bad Elf Pro works under rainy, canyon, shady conditions: data log track of my trip from Lahaina to Hana and back around the South Road. It picked up every single twist and curve and, for more than 4 hours, never lost a solid track (e.g., I've had tracks on other GPS units suddenly jump miles away and back to my location due to bad topographic and veg conditions). Fantastic! And every photo geotagged perfectly! Apple's Aperture does successfully import the resultant GPX files....

    It worked with my iPad better then i expected. I use it with my Jeppesen FD App during flight. And the information that is displayed worked at 39,0000 feet, just as it did at on ground.
