Well, after thinking i was “saving” money by buying a WiFi only iPad Mini, and then getting a Garmin Nuvi ( which loves driving on the smallest roads possible, BUT NOT the main road…which is quicker! )

I decided to bite the bullet and “upgrade” the iPad and give it REAL GPS functionality

ENTER BAD ELF ( not to be confused with bad robot which is involved in film making!!! )



And there tis… TomTom, RangeViewer and other offline map systems now have real time location without the need of Wifi, Gets a nice lock too with the GPS and is much better than the silly Garmin, Though to be honest would have saved money if a) i stuck with TomTom or/and b) got an iPad with Wifi and Cellnetowrk.

Anyway….works great!!!

  1. Downside is that my current mount keep “unlocking” and dropping its “head” down thereby making it hard to see the map…need a better mount!
