By default, your Bad Elf is designed to stream the full complement of NMEA sentences available from its specific GNSS Engine to a connected non-iOS client.  On occassion, the NMEA parser built into the 3rd party software can't handle one or several of these messages. In this scenario reducing the broadcast set to the most basic configuration, GPGGA + GPRMC, will remove any issue.   


This configuration is for non-iOS clients connected over Bluetooth to either a Bad Elf GPS Pro, a Bad Elf GPS Pro+, or a Bad Elf GNSS Surveyor.  


1. To access this configurable feature your Elf needs to be ON and connected to your iOS device.  Open our app and tap the tab in the menu for your Bad Elf. 



2.  Select BlueTooth Settings from the subsequent menu.



3.   In the main window pane, scroll down to the setting Streaming NMEA.  Tap the cell to open the configurable options. 



4. On the next screen select Simplified NMEA, your Bad Elf is now configured to broadcast the minimum NMEA payload.



FYI: This full broadcast set of sentences comprise the following messages on the different models.

Bad Elf GPS Pro: GPGGA, GPRMC, GPGSV, GPGSA, 

Bad Elf GPS Pro+: GPGGA, GPRMC, GPGSV, GLGSV, GNGSA 

Bad Elf GNSS Surveyor: GPGGA, GPRMC, GPGSV, GPGSA, GPGST
