Bad Elf GNSS receivers deliver affordable accuracy through easy-to-use hardware supported by continuously evolving firmware, apps, and cloud services. Founded in 2010, Bad Elf created the first Made for iOS external GPS accessory and now enables high performance location services for all mobile platforms.
Bad Elf embraced the gentle nudging of customers toward the GIS market. This brings it right back to learn everything about this market and bring that history of integrated hardware and software engineering to create happy customers. Many people think companies go into business to create products and services, but at Bad Elf the objective is to create loyal customers – the products and services exist only as a means to that end.
The founders worked together for years in a big three letter corporation engaging closely with customers to solve hard problems. As engineers, they live to challenge themselves and learn new things about how things work in the world around them. Since the origination of Bad Elf over a dinner conversation in Stuttgart, Germany in the fall of 2009, the founders have added to the team by finding people to help them improve and expand the business by adding their unique talents, skills, and passions in these pursuits.
