Gaia GPS can use external GPS devices such as the Dual XGPS and Bad Elf. This is especially useful for users that have wifi-only iPads or iPod touches, which do not have built in GPS chips. These devices can also provide greater accuracy and frequency than the built-in GPS.
1) We use the best signal - The iPad/iPhone will switch back and forth between the internal and external GPS, based on whichever source has the best signal.
2) Pairing - Download the companion apps for these devices that confirm that the devices have properly connected.

Please note: if you are getting a "Bad Coordinates" message from Gaia GPS, please check to make sure Bluetooth is turned on in the settings of your device.
