Bad Elf Customer Appreciation Program

by Brett Hackleman September 02, 2015 1 Comment


Five years ago this month, we introduced the first Apple-approved plug-in external GPS receiver to the market. That product was the Bad Elf GPS for 30-pin Dock Connector, which grew out of a humble skunkworks project.  Since then, we have learned and grown more than we ever expected. We owe that success to our customers, many of whom have been enthusiastic supporters since those early days.

As our way of saying thank you, we are offering a customer appreciation upgrade program for the month of September. For folks looking to upgrade to a new Bad Elf GPS unit with more features, we’re offering up to $100 cash back when you trade in your old device.

The process is simple:

  • Buy a new Bad Elf GPS for Lightning Connector, GPS Pro, or GPS Pro+ from the Bad Elf Online Store
  • Send Bad Elf your old device and the rebate paperwork
  • Qualify for a rebate of $50, $75, or $100
  • Offer valid on qualifying purchases during the month of September 2015



Please visit our Bad Elf Customer Appreciation page for more information!

And once again, thanks for supporting Bad Elf over the last five years.  We can’t wait to show you what we’ve got in store for the next five!

I use the Bad Elf Pro 2300 with an iPad mini3 and avenza georeferenced pdf maps as a wildland firefighter. Having no wifi or cell service in the wilderness, the combination with your product is not only valuable but has the potential to keep us alive, safe and in the right place with fire maps. I think you’ve got an untapped market here and I’m willing to help out! The neck lanyard really doesn’t cut it in this use- any thought to developing a case that can be mounted on a pack via Alice Clips? Maybe a Kevlar-nomex blend fabric and fleece lined?

Affordable High-Accuracy GPS for Education

by Larry Fox October 25, 2016

Obtaining high quality geographic information systems (GIS) data depends on effective field data collection. Poor field collection wastes labor resources and ultimately undermines the value of your GIS database.

GPS receiver capabilities range from survey grade (centimeter level accuracy) to consumer grade (~5-meter level accuracy). Of course, this demands a cost-benefit tradeoff ranging from free to prohibitively expensive for most educational institutions. Between these two extremes lies mapping grade GPS, which delivers 1 meter accuracy.
