Bad Elf GPS Pro

A GPS device developed for flying, boating and other outdoor activities was recognized as TechRadar’s Best GPS Device at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The GPS Pro, developed by East Hartford-based Bad Elf, LLC, has the ability to connect up to five iOS devices using Bluetooth so that everyone can share the same GPS receiver and position data whether they are in a plane, boat, or car.

Bad Elf was founded in 2010 and joined the business incubator program at the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology.

“We knew from the enthusiasm of our existing customers, particularly pilots and boaters, that we had delivered a great product,” Bad Elf CEO and president John Cunningham said in a press release. ¬†“However, winning the best in category award , at such a high profile industry event, in front of a global audience far exceeded our expectations.”
