I've calibrated the wind meter against the auto speedometer and GPS. It's pretty much spot on. (However, it sure could use a 1000 yard extension handle and some telemetry
It hangs around my neck constantly. Here in Los Alamos there's a thousand feet between the apartment and the gun range. I contiunally plug the various numbers into the code to get a "feel" for what things mean. Its a whole new world. Words mean things and data is important.
A warning would be to get something like a good shooting cartridge other than your main hunting rifle to wear out learning all of this stuff.
Baro Pressure seems to be spot on. But elevation varies all over the place as baro pressure changes. This is very confusing to the aged mind.........
What to enter, baro pressure w/the actual reading or corrected to sea level and throw the elevation away?????? This has been stated several different ways depending upon the software being used, I think......
Up in Idaho there were only two elevations that I hunted LR. Here elevation changes are hummongous over very short distances.
Good luck and good shootin'
