Taking Stock

I logged in to Amazon to check on the GPS listing and see if any of the early adopters had posted any reviews for the world. None yet! You cannot imagine how anxious we are to see how the device is received by our customers. If we did our jobs well, we hope to see some positive feedback.  If we missed something, please tell us directly - we welcome constructive feedback. In some blog posts and comments written before the product launch, we've noticed a few misconceptions that we attributed to insufficient communication on our part. We are working to address those by putting up focused blog posts as we learn from your comments and questions.

As of this afternoon, only four units remain from the first batch that went live on Amazon last Friday. Rest assured, a new batch has been received by Amazon and is in process to replenish the stock. We greatly appreciate the initial response by those of you who have been willing to purchase the Bad Elf GPS in advance of any third party reviews. We sincerely hope that you are completely satisfied with your acquisition as an early adopter.

Please use the Feedback link to the right of the page to tell us how you are using your Bad Elf GPS and what you think of it once you've had a chance to take it for spin!

UPDATE (11/03/2010): Back in stock at Amazon!

An Amazon search sometimes turns up the same product in multiple departments with multiple unique reviews, or in your case, no reviews.

I don’t know why the delay, but I finally amazon shipped my gps dongle today.

While I am waiting for the gps to arrive, I have a question. Let’s say I have a iPhone (w/3G) and a wifi iPad. Can I plug the gps into the phone, use the bad elf app to preload the agps data, then unplug and plug into the iPad, and it will keep the agps data? Or will the act of unplugging it clear the agps data from the unit?

That trick might be useful in the field if wifi is not available to update directly if it will work.

The AGPS data is stored in the accessory itself, as long as the internal battery is charged, and is valid for up to 6 days. So yes, your plan would definitely work! Keep in mind that without AGPS data loaded, the Bad Elf GPS gets a lock within ~35 seconds if it has a clear view of the sky – so it may or may not be worth the trouble.

Hi Rich, please check your email. Don’t know why this order was delayed, but the Amazon system claims it will ship 11/3.

Hi – have ordered from the uk. Delivery showing as 10-17 November. When I ordered off the eBay store it indicated shipping would be a lot quicker. Tracking status hasn’t changed for last 48 hours. Very frustrating – really want to try it out.

Nigel, I found your order details and it did in fact ship on October 30th. I also see the same date range listed and I am guessing that this is a function of the destination. I will email you the tracking number, which may or may not be helpful. But it is on the way! We are looking into getting set up with Amazon overseas to provide more timely fulfillment for our customers outside the US in the future. Sorry for the delay and thank you for being an early adopter.

I know I ordered the gps on the 29th (using super saver shipping) and I am still waiting for it to be shipped, other items in the order shipped the same day.

I can’t wait to try it once it arrives and I get done from this weeks tour.
