Hi Everyone, I'm writing this Post because as some of you may know that I have been foolin with different Ballistic Programs and this has led me to Buying YET another Kestrel
because of some of the Apps/Programs require more Data,
Well after buying the K2500NV and now the K4000NV it appears that there is alot more messing around when it comes to setting up the 4000NV as you would expect, But as some Well Versed Members have said when you want to know the actual Baro Pressure of where you are you just set the Altitude to ZERO and YES they are right, But this only works on the 2000/2500 and the 3500 models, If you try this with the 4000 series it does not give you the correct Barometric pressure for the area that you are AT.
With the K4000NV I have set the Baro ref ALT to 0 and I have change the Altimeter Ref baro along with UN syncing the Baro to the Alt and Vice Versa and I have found that Nothing no matter what I do will Give me the correct UN-corrected Barometric Pressure of where I am which is what we depend on for shooting, as most people Know we climb a hill/mountain Zero the kestrels Barometric ALT Ref and we then get the correct reading for that that Altitude But if you buy the 4000 series you will have to mess around phoning up weather stations or by getting a rough Idea of your Altitude from maps or try and average your Altitude that your GPS give which as we all know can go up and down Like A Bride's Nighty (nightdress),
So seeing as we depend on Actual (RealTime) Pressure, I have come to the conclusion that for getting UnBiased readings from a Kestrel the Best models for this Purpose are in fact the 2000s/2500s and the 3500s, Because unless you have access to the actual weather details of that area (actual location)when you are 150+ miles out in the Bush then you are only guessing the Barometric pressure
If anyone has any other answers on this issue please jump in as this might be the reason why some folks fail to understand these things
