    My wife got me a "Bad-Elf" GPS unit for my Iphone. This turns my Iphone into a gps using satelite not phone towers to locate me, how cool is that? I am in search for the best app for usage on this dude, anyone have experience?


    What did you get?

    Great, if you want your wife to find you...

    OK, I had to say it before someone else did.
    So, if it is satellite-based, does that mean you don't need a cell signal for it to work? I don't have MTA, therefore I have no signal in a lot of areas I like to visit.

    etdvm,
    Good one on the wife finding me.

    As I understand it no cell signal is used for the gps so yes it will work without a cell tower to access. I will find out soon.

    GPS bounce signals off satilites to track a position. So if it turns your phone into a true gps i can see were this would be neat and confusing to people at the same time.

    Every time I try to tie flies my kid wants a turn at the vise, so this year he got his own.
