My reasons for wanting the Bad Elf:
10hz update rate
forward facing antenna (the iPod will be mounted on a flat metal surface facing up).
I read about some charging jack issues with the Emprum UltiMate GPS, as well as the antenna is rear facing so might not get great signal in my application.
I asked about the Bad Elf in the v17 announcement thread and Mr. Harry replied:
Of course that page doesn't really go into the details. So they don't have an API available, who cares if it can do 10hz through the apple interface?!?!? Is that the only issue??Harry wrote:The Bad Elf is not recommended although it delivers 10 Hz. Please check http://www.gps-laptimer.de/Compatibility.html for the details.
I know Elf gives crappy support, lies, etc. And Emprum gives great support, etc. but I really want 10hz. I'm ready to buy my hardware today, need to know asap.
(P.S. Device is iPod Touch 4th Gen 8gb with Harry's Lap Timer Pro, soon to be v17 GrandPrix edition)
