Yes it does, just figured out I have the weather bug widget not the weather bug app. Thanks!

Re: Field test of "Shooter" for Androids

These apps are good but my guess is that they do not work when you do not have a cell phone signal (correct me if I'm wrong ) . Do not rely on these apps in a field situation . I much prefer the station pressure method which does not depend on altitude so to speak but does need an accurate kestrel reading for station pressure.

You are correct and for altitude you need a gps signal. I bought a suunto watch so I have barometer and altimeter with me as well as temp and a compass, good looking watch as well. I don't have a kestrel, looks like a good idea.

I've been debating on a wind meter, I may try one of the Caldwell's as they are only $40.

I have one from Minox i just need to start using it more.

For $40 it is probably a good investment considering all the money already spent on everything else. I really like the Kestrel blue tooth idea but I did not want to spend $300... yet...

The caldwell gives wind and temp only. I have noticed a 1mph difference in wind readings when compared to a kesrel.
