Balance Price vs. Performance

How would you define the perfect GPS?

The perfect GPS has absolute accuracy and is free!

Is near perfect accuracy essential, without compromise?

When you need 1-cm accuracy, compromise is not an option. High-accuracy solutions require complex GNSS hardware and correction services.

What can I expect from my phone or tablet?

If you already own a smartphone, you most likely have a built-in GPS receiver at no additional charge. However, that cellular-assisted GPS is not likely to provide consistently better than 5m accuracy. Sometimes that is acceptable, but rarely for GIS/mapping scenarios.

Do you need to assess tradeoffs between budget and accuracy?

The plot below shows a story that is clear. High accuracy is costly. Technology has advanced and GNSS devices are becoming more powerful and capable. Bad Elf devices are positioned well to provide mapping grade accuracy at an affordable price. Whatever the accuracy you require, Bad Elf has your solution.
