Would you share your findings in working through your original question?
Sure..I don't know about the android as I have the IPhone.
But on my kestrel4500..I went to the baro screen and set "Ref Alt" to 0. That gave me what the already calibrated sea level baro was. As you go up or down (if you live in Louisiana) in elevation the baro pressure will change accordingly. So it doesn't really matter what your altitude is. Now in your shooter app, to be able to use the baro pressure from your kestrel without worrying about altitude, you have to switch "pressure is absolute" to "on". This will allow you to enter the baro pressure into shooter but takes away the place to put in altitude(which you don't need doin it this way). This matched all my drops out to 1300 yards so far.
Now this is just being nit picky but if you just want to know your altitude on your kestrel for giggles then go to the altitude screen and adjust your altitude to whatever your GPS says and then your kestrel will start tracking it accordingly.
I hope this helped. I tried to explain it as simple as possible. The other threads that I tried to read were about like trying to understand applied physics. I just played with it until I figured it out and ten asked someone if that was how they did it.
