Some very good news from Bad Elf: “During Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) keynote yesterday, Apple announced several new services that will be included in iOS 8.4 and available by June 30th. This release is expected to fix the open iOS bugs affecting external GPS receiver accessories. Although we had hoped for a 8.3.1 update or 8.4 release to launch much sooner than this, at least we now have a firm date.”
iOS 8.3 removed service for external GPS devices using iPhone/iPad’s older access port, rendering GPS devices using this port useless.
Besides auto GPS, Bad Elf external chips offer GPS for marine and aviation use, as well as for sports enthusiasts. I have used the product for several years. You can find out more about Bad Elf, and GPS for wireless iPads by clicking here for the article: Add GPS To Your iPad 2 WiFi
