+1 on the DUAL. Less expensive, and just as capable.

The Bad Elf has twice the battery life. I used mine for point to point racing.  I was able to leave mine plugged into ship’s power and leave the unit down below.  But, you can’t do that on carbon boats, as the signal won’t go through!  The Bad Elf also has a small lcd display, giving speed and cog.

I’m running a 9” IPad brightness is on full, the gps and wifi are on (connection to Furuno radar, works great) and it is a battery hog.   I might go to an IPad mini and perhaps a bad elf to use less power.   I assume a mini is less power dependent.   

We had a lot of fog on our June cruise and wouldn’t of cruised on schedule without this stuff.
