Never replaced mine after being stolen.

I use an app. And the phone on air plane mode to save the battery. Amything less than 900 yards, I know the DOPE, I go off that.

I want the Kestrel for weather conditions. I can't get the DOPE from my Strelok app.

"Shooter" populates DA and Temp, and adjusts accordingly.

Funny you should mention as I havenít used my 5700 in awhile but yesterday took it to the range and input my .284 Win and used it along with checking Applied Ballistics on the phone just to see how well they matched. Only could shoot to 654 but they gave same data of 3.66 mil with 183 Sierra running 2775. I did not link them just used local weather on phone in AB.
Knocked all the red paint that was the bullseye off..... that gun will shoot! cheers

I have Shooter but quit using it as it seemed to have IPhone glitches all the time

Yup. I never use the phone app much but its awesome to sync and load profiles that way. Biggest thing I like is not having to worry about battery like one does with a phone. It lasts a long while.
