Our group purchased and used a Bad Elf Surveyor on a project earlier this year. The battery life is amazing, the Bluetooth pairing (at least on iOS) is a breeze and configuring Collector to use this signal in lieu of the on-board GNSS receiver was a piece of cake. Collector reported positional accuracy of up to 2.7 ft. in a parking lot on a sunny, cloud-free day.

If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me directly.

Did you experienced hardware failures requiring technician attention?

Thanks!

It was very reliable - we just turned it on, paired over Bluetooth and went to work. We had zero issues after continuous usage over a month's worth of regular usage.
