Get the 4000 or 4500, they will give you density altitude (DA). DA simplifies data entry into your ballistic program. Also, after using your kestrel for awhile you will be able to fairly accurately guess the ballpark DA.

Re: Kestrel weather meter

For some people like me, who don't have a smart phone, the Kestrel with the new AB ballistics software is a one box solution to the ballistics question. I already have a ton of crap I drag around, so I want to keep it as simple as possible.

Thinking strongly about getting this one, especially since I've seen the delay my shooting buddies have with uploading info via bluetooth from their Kestrels to Shooter.

Can the ballistic software be downloaded to this? Huge difference in price.
