It's nice to have an LRF coupled via Bluetooth with the Applied Ballistics' engine from say, a Kestrel/AB 5700.
That means not going back and forth from the LRF to the Kestrel.

WHICH LRFs have this capability? (NOT including the Bushnell Sport LRF).
I wish the Leica HD-B 3000 binoculars had it.

Not being a smarty pants, but you know there are devices that are all inclusive...?
Gunwerks, Sig Kilo 2400, the Leica you mentioned, and probably more just out or coming abouts.

Tyler-> Yep, I want elevation AND windage displayed in the binocular - with Bluetooth input from, say a Kestrel.

Bravo 4-> Really? Leica is coming out with an anemometer for their LRF binoculars?

Sig Kilo 2400 and the Gunwerks G7 BR 2500 use the ABS engine and do what you're asking without using the Kestrel. The Bushnell CONX does just elevation (which is stupid). I hated the Kestrel---App---CONX combo. The app was always clunky and slow and I had frequent bluetooth pairing issues. Instead, I just paired the rangefinder to the Kestrel and moved on with life.

From the videos I’ve seen they read and compensate temp and pressure, as well as angle, and give you a ballistic solution akin to the other two mentioned based off the rifle profile selected. I could be wrong, I make mistakes daily. The first one was getting out of bed @ 0330 this morning...and again tomorrow. :D

Yeah, Bravo 4, I hear you. Any morning that begins before 8 AM is a bad day - but then I'm retired. ;o) (Just rubbing it in...)

I think the Bluetooth pairing between an anemometer and a binocular like the Leica probably needs another year to work out bugs.

WHY can't Bushnell make there LRF binoculars to at least have angle compensation (for rifles)? AND why can't Bushnell have a Leica-like micro SD card to carry one's EXACT rifle ballistics?? (DISCLAIMER: I own a Bushnell ARC 1 Mile 10 x 42 binocular.) :eek:(

I wonder when we'll see a Burris Eliminator "IV" with better glass?

I have a hand full left till I retire from the military. Won’t come soon enough, starting to feel used up.:D

As far as the Leica is concerned, I believe it has the environmental sensors built into the unit. Like the G7 and 2400, no need to carry a kestrel. Either way, I agree with letting them work the bugs out.
