iPad + Verizon Mi-Fi + Bad Elf GPS = Awesome

Last week Verizon Wireless and Apple announced that Verizon will start selling the iPad Wi-Fi on Oct 28. Verizon will be bundling their Mi-Fi 2200 Mobile Hotspot device with the iPad, for approximately the same price as the iPad 3G+Wi-Fi. They will be offering monthly data plans with no long-term contracts. This is awesome news for customers who cannot use AT&T.

Although the Mi-Fi does provide some basic cell-tower and Skyhook-based Assisted GPS data, the resolution is not fine enough for turn-by-turn navigation, location tracking, or geo-caching. Add a Bad Elf GPS, and you've got a great solution that works on Verizon (advertised as "America's largest and most reliable 3G Network") and allows you to share your internet connection with up to 5 other Wi-Fi devices. Pretty cool!
