nice piece , set up easy, only problem I see is it only shows true north - it would be nice if you had the option of magnetic north. Just received the GPS so I can't talk to the durability or reliability. Appears to be well made. Time will tell.

Bad Elf Pro is an excellent flying partner
I’ve had my Bad Elf Pro for over a year now. I pair it with my iPad and use it in Civil Air Patrol. It works well with my EFB and other GPS based software that I use. Battery life is incredibly long. I never have to worry about it. Highly recommended!

BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work in Europe.
Does it work with google maps or the mapping program on an iPad 6plus?
BobWorrall on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bob. I have an iPad Air with 64 GB of RAM that I purchased in late 2015. The Bad Elf Pro I purchased seems to work fine with the mapping applications on my iPad. I tested this by first turning off the "Location Services" in the "Privacy" tab. Then, I opened a map application to verify that no position information was available. I then turned on my Bad Elf Pro GPS receiver. It nearly immediately linked with the iPad and in a few seconds, my position was annotated on the map application. While I can't specifically speak for using an iPad 6+, the Bad Elf Pro works just fine with the iPad Air 64 GB. I'd suggest that you contact the folks at Bad Elf to see if they can answer your "6+" question. I'd send you the link to them, but the "fine print" in this site prohibits me from doing that. You should be able to find them simply by "googling" them. Good luck.
What mounting options are available ?
Darryl D on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It does not have mounting options.
Does this device work with all iPhones? If my iPad became non-functional in flight, I want to be able to pair the Bad Elf with an iPhone.
A shopper on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work with iPhone.
Does this unit have a barometric sensor for altitude?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I suspect not. I've read through the instructional material, and labeling on the box. I do not see anything that indicates this GPS receiver measures "barometric" altitude. The box does show that the Bad Elf II is "accurate to 8 ft (2.5 m). I don't know what your application requirement is, but for aviation purposes, this is certainly sufficient.
two questions , Our first use and interest is for sailing & racing on Lake Erie where there is limited cell service.
This device works without cell service regardless of having marine map software loaded or not?
Second, I've experienced in Guatalama last year, that an I Phone had better mapping capability than the off market map I bought for my Garmin GPS. Would this support that?
Dwight M on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I also use the bad elf GPS unit for sailing and race management on the Chesapeake Bay. I connect via Bluetooth to an iPad with various marine navigation apps. Bad elf's GPS signal is fluid and accurate 100% of the time. Much more so than with my iPhone cell connection. There are apps that are better than others and in some cases it's more personal choice.
There are also parts of the Bay where I do not get proper cell service or the service is intermittent. Bad Elf works regardless of where I am.

As to your experience in Guatemala, I have previously used a handheld GPS device but the mapping on those units was less than adequate. With navigation apps on my iPhone using the Bad Elf signal, my only restriction was limitations related to the available mapping in remote areas.

I hope this helps
Will this work with my marine apps. On an iPad Pro? Thought my iPad was gps enabled but apparently with an *.
A shopper on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will depend on the app. I would go to www.badelf.com and check to see if the app is listed. I would expect that it should work.
Does this unit work with Android phones and pc's?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since I'm an Apple user, I couldn't immediately provide you an answer, but first referenced the user manual that came with my Bad Elf II. According to the documentation that comes with this device, it'll only work with Apple devices (I know, "bummer" for you!). This site won't permit me to forward you the Bad Elf support email address. However, I'd bet you can find that information on-line, by "googling" Bad Elf II.
