Bluetooth Rangefinder Needed

I am developing and testing a ballistic computer application for field use during hunting. It is not intended for resale but for personal use so I hope I am not violating any forum rules. Anyway, it currently connects to the Kestrel 4500 Bluetooth weather meter for atmospheric infomation but I have to enter the compass direction of the target and range via a touchscreen keypad. It would be nice to have a bluetooth capable range finder to totally automate the process and trigger the calculations. I have proven to myself that using current atmospheric and wind condition is far superior to any kind of clck chart for shooting beyond 1000 yards. The only one I have found online is the Newcon 6000 CI but I don't want to shell out $7500 to see if it will work. If anyone knows a cheaper alternative or has experience with the Newcon 6000 CI I would appreciate the information.

Laser Technology TruPulse 360 Laser Rangefinder ON SALE Tru Pulse Laser Rangefinder Integrated Compass / Inclinometer

The trupulse 360B from LTI. The "B" is the bluetooth model. Hopefully you can pull the asimuth and inclination data from it to and use those in your calculations aswell.

Re: Bluetooth Rangefinder Needed

Thanks for the input. I need a range finder with more range than the 1000 meters that rangefinder indicates. We shoot a 50 BMG Improved and most shots are over 1000 meters and I would like a rangefinder that has no problem ranging to 2000 meters. I will have to save my pennies I guess.
