I have always used actual station pressure for the Baro. input. Shawn use to input both Baro and altitude in the NF program.

This is the first time I have ever heard that DA is just as accurate. I was always told Boaro actual station pressure was the most accurate. I thought DA was a primary function use for the automatic input from GPS. But I have no first hand experience using DA.

My preference is DA as it is faster and so far has been just as accurate. Say this having made shots out to 1515 using DA.
