What's New in Version 1.5.1
Updated to include K5 firmware v1.13
This app is an awesome idea. In theory, I can set the kestrel on a stand and not have to run up to it every time I want a reading. However, the app needs to be updated to be able to select individual units of measure like the kestrel can. I’m an Air Force weather tech and we take readings in knots. The current app only allows for imperial or metric which reads out as either MPH or m/s. Being able to individually select each unit of measure on the app would help out greatly! Please update!
Not perfect, but works well
The export feature for logged data doesn't currently work, and I agree with other users that individual units and more of them would be helpful, but otherwise the app works well.
Good but needs work
The app does not read what's on my kestrel display. I need the wind speed to read in knots not MPH.
