Bad Elf GPS honored at Las Vegas show


The Bad Elf GPS Pro Direct Satellite GPS was named the Best GPS Device in the TechRadar Best of CES 2013 Awards presented at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The water-resistant, handheld Bad Elf GPS Pro is an Apple-approved accessory that wirelessly connects via Bluetooth wireless technology as many as five users of an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad to share real-time, direct satellite GPS data for display on digital charts and a wide range of other compatible marine apps on board via satellite anywhere in the world.

Bad Elf also announced that it appointed Summerhill CA Sales to represent the company’s product line in Canada.

Summerhill will introduce Bad Elf to Canadian boaters Jan. 12-20 at the Toronto International Boat Show at the Direct Energy Centre (Booth G 567). Based in Ontario, Summerhill has provided sales representation and technical support for marine electronics manufacturers for more than 20 years.

Bad Elf GPS does not rely on cell tower assistance to achieve a lock or to determine position. The Bad Elf unit includes a high-performance satellite receiver and antenna that receives data directly from GPS satellites. Locking on to as many as 15 satellites, a Bad Elf unit supplies GPS data as often as 10 times a second and accurate to within 9 feet, allowing users to improve their GPS lock on the water beyond cellphone coverage areas.
