I use that as a backup to my G7 rangefinder which has the software built right in. And it also senses air density so you don't need a separate instrument to check temp and BP.
If you bought the G7 rangefinder you'd save quite a bit on the windmeter and PDA. And you'd get one of the very best rangefinders out there.
Yeah I know all of that Len and also got an email reply from Arron. He's good about that and he says the same thing. "I need a G7 BR2".
I'm just having a hard time justifying the $1600 cost since I already have a quality range finder. If I had no range finder, it would be a no brainer. But like you said, by the time I buy PDA, software, and a Kestrel, I haven't really saved that much over the BR2 and it's much more efficient to use. I'm going to get a Kestrel anyway because I think it helps one to dope the wind by testing your assumptions as you walk around.
Sounds like the G7 software is as good or better than Loadbase, Xball, etc.
