Do you need to store or log data?

Do you want to chart data?

Do you need to upload to a computer?

Do you need a backlit display?

There is a thread in FAQs on the subject. About 90% depends upon you and how far you going to shoot with what rifle and how little or much sense you have. Obviously trying to claim you have a lot of good sense won't wash being as here you are on this forum.

Under a thousand yards the three chief things you need to know are wind speed, temperature and altitude. Of those three, I can usually figure out if it is hot or cold and do not need a thermometer to tell me that. Unless I am lost I usually know how high I am unless I have been partaking of controlled substances in which case I might be pretty high and not realize it. So that leaves wind as the variable that I need the most.
