can be made better

The single target mode could be modified so you can switch targets from the phone without touching the kestrel, also you should be able to activate the wind capture function from the phone.
Also the multiple targets mode should be populated automatically fom the kestrel with all the targets already defined in the kestrel or at least have this an an option and it should be faster to display holds for these targets, so if you activate wind capture you can see the wind holds change in real time !!

Crashes in IOS

Just downloaded the app and it refuses to open with Bluetooth turned on but will open if Bluetooth is off. I tried deleting and re-downloading and it still crashes. Will not work on ANY iOS device. Kestrel works fine with Strelok Pro.

I wish the app would work consistently. My gun profiles disappear and there’s no options or settings other than to connect a device, which doesn’t work either. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app several times with not much luck. So disappointed after stretching to buy the top of the line Kestrel with Bluetooth only to find out there’s not much benefit.

Developer Response ,

Sorry for the late reply. We updated the app around that time that required a firmware update to connect to the app. Apparently you are not getting the firmware update. Please try this: 1) Go to Airplane Mode 2) Turn on Bluetooth while in Airplane Mode 3) Try to connect to the app to see if you are prompted for a firmware update.
