Hi there,

What outstanding service, first from Bad Elf for awarding me one of their absolutely wonderful GPS receivers, and then to the US Postal Service for getting it to me here in New Zealand in under 1 week!

Having got it in the mail earlier today I’ve been able to use it with City Maps2Go and Google maps with outstanding results. It really is a dream to use.

As an added bonus, I don’t now have to rely on the rather fragile Apple connector cable for synching/charging etc.. as the micro USB on the Bad Elf permits me to connect directly using a USB-micro USB cable (supplied with the Bad Elf for all iPod connections.

Once again – well done Bad Elf, a really excellent bit of kit.

Eric Ball

Affordable High-Accuracy GPS for Education

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.
