Does Fulcrum support external GPS devices such as Bad Elf? Need to use this for offline survey in remote regions in Peru. Need more accuracy than the typical Iphone GPS.

    Hello Jim,

    Fulcrum does not directly interact with any external GPS device. The location information is provided to us directly form the device itself. The external GPS device needs to be able to override the internal GPS device (most can and do this).

    We have tested a few GPS devices in the past, below are a few articles that we have up on on blog page.

    Thanks,

    thanks! Since I would be using Bad Elf, looks like my question is answered
    and that would be YES.
