    Got a smoking bundle price on Amazon too!

    I love that I have a REAL remote without wires. The app works great on both my iPhone and iPad. If you are at a range it lets you have the chrono out past the red line while you work with shot strings from the bench.
    The only thing I wish were different is that the data is local to the device (shot strings from my phone will not show up on my iPad.)

    You can use standard sharing (e-mail, msg, etc) to share string data.

    It does graphing, temp, pressure, spread average, high, low & spread.

    For those of you not into all this cool stuff, there is the "Classic" Remote only mode that replicates the readout and buttons on the front of the chrono.

    I love this thing!:)

    Timely. Thanks. I have been contemplating a chrono. Your post pushed me over the edge.

    I was going to buy the USB connection, even got a cheap laptop for range duty but this has me rethinking that.

    Partial waste of money. Couldn't get the app to install on my Android. Contacted the manufacturer. Received the weak excuse that Androids are all different. Very difficult to read on my phone, especially in daylight.

    Chronograph works OK. I suppose I will just have to record the readings manually.

    I recommend strongly to anyone considering buy this to email info@competitionelectronics.com with the model of the tablet to determine whether it is compatible.

    Apparently Android is not the standard we are to believe.

    Uh, what happens when the SHTF?

    Can't beat clockwork, IMO. Mind you, I have around thirty of 'em.
