The problem with smartphones is they just don’t work everywhere. Not yet. Although, some of us around AGW believe the technology is already there, it’s just being blocked. Anyway, a few years back we picked up one of these Bad Elf GPS units to take on off-road adventures. Plugged into our iPhones and iPads, it allowed us to navigate trails using previously downloaded maps with ease. The GPS built into your smartphone is tied to your cellular service. So, when you go out of range your phone is rendered useless. This tiny device plugs into the charging port of your phone and provides GPS signal anywhere in the world.
Seeing that it is now available for newer Apple devices using the lightning port, we may have to snag a new one for our adventure supplies. BUY HERE
