Re: Leica's New Geovid HD-B
from what I understand and have heard when its in MOA mode its rounding the numbers, which IMO sucks. so it appears the best way to get an accurate measurement is by using click mode which is going to be harder to figure out quickly. real fast whats 71 clicks =?? sometimes I really wonder who leica used to test these. for me it looks like they didn't get them into the hands of actual users. no angle compensation below 100 yards, which is dumb because bow hunters could use that. also 1000 yards is as far as the ballistic features will work for. Someone from leica claimed some issue with legalities in exporting an RF unit with ranging features beyond 860 yards or something to that effect. ummm to that I say I don't care, figure out a way around the law which they did somewhat by having the G7 program go to 1000 yards.
The big miss for leica is these units just aren't available right now, I want to buy some right now but the only places I have seen them are big box stores, which I am not paying 3 grand plus another $200 in sales tax. Even the big box stores don't have them right now, everyone is buying hunting gear right now. and they don't have the product to sell. There have also been complaints about the lense covers.
