Bad Elf®, the leading manufacturer of external GPS devices officially licensed by Apple for use with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, has appointed Chris Allen Director of Marketing and Social Media.
Formerly a retail team leader for Apple in the US and Canada, Chris is responsible for managing the Bad Elf brand through the company’s online and social media presence. He attended the Fanshawe College of Art & Design in London, Ontario.
Bad Elf recently introduced the Pro+ Receiver (BE-GPS-2300), which features a high performance, 66 channel GPS+GLONASS receiver accurate to within 8 feet (2.5 meters) that quickly acquires a satellite lock anywhere in the world – without cell tower assistance. No Internet connection or monthly subscription is required. An internal barometric sensor helps monitor changes in local weather conditions, which is great for sailing and sportsfishing.
The Bad Elf GPS Pro+ also features USB connectivity to a PC or Mac to stream NMEA 0183 GPS data to legacy charting applications. Up to 200 hours of data logs can now be accessed through USB file system mounting, similar to typical thumb drives.
With a more than 24-hour battery life and IPX4 splash resistance, the lightweight, compact Bad Elf GPS Pro+ instantly adds location support to a compatible iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices via Bluetooth™ wireless connection. The new USB connectivity support now makes the GPS Pro+ a great backup unit for boaters using a PC or Mac for course planning and plotting. As many as five on board devices can share the data location simultaneously. MSRP is US $299.99.
