About this app

The Kestrel LiNK® Ballistics App gives you the ability to manage key features and functions of your connected Kestrel Ballistics device to maximize convenience and boost your shooting performance.

Quickly and easily create, upload, download, and store gun profiles and access the Applied Ballistics and Hornady libraries of lab-tested bullet parameters and profiles for use in your Kestrel Ballistics Meter using the Gun Profile Manager(1).

Thus far the ballistic predictions are pretty close, but not dead on for my 22lr shots out past 100yds. You only seem to be able to access the MV Temp data table from the App, not the unit. You can only access the DSF table from the unit, not the App. Thus you have to save and transfer gun/bullet data in the propper order to get it to save the data and update these factors properly. Both need to be accessible from App and Unit.

Hello Matt - You can connect a Kestrel 5700 to the Kestrel LiNK app for just viewing weather. You just can't connect to the LiNK and LiNK Ballistics app at the same time. Also on the Kestrel LiNK Ballistics app, there is a section in the Single Target screen (bottom right) that shows your current weather conditions.

Update: Changed rating from 3 to 5 stars. I contacted technical support after posting my original review and they were able to find the source of the bug, updated the app, and now it works fine! Original review: The app is good for setting up the gun profile and transferring it to the device, but the compass calibration and MV calibration options do not work. Any time I select either of these, the app crashes. I haven't been able to find a way to correct this.

This application was not designed to work with non-Ballistic Kestrels. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
