    Anybody know right off which LRFs this Kestrel Sportsman will pair with? Would be good for a unit to pair with all of them!!
    Thanks
    I upgraded the firmware from Sportsman to 5700 and it linked to the Bushnell Nitro 1800 and provides range, elevation and wind readings.

    Mine arrived today and it is as advertised. I have been putting off getting a kestrel for years, very glad I finally did it! Thanks again Doug!

    I upgraded.

    Easy to do.

    Now I can enter more rifles than 3.

    I saved some money with this deal considering the peripherals that come with the Sportsman model.

    Thanks @gr8fuldoug

    I am guessing the Kestrel cable to upgrade is proprietary, not a mini usb, etc?

    Its an Infrared cable.

    The two "eyes" on the back of the Kestrel send/receive the data.

    The upgrade is specific to your kestrel by serial number.

    I think its not their first rodeo and they are in business to make money.

    Im not a tech guy so the cable was right for me. The Dongle may give you more options if you have high speed devices that you can Link to in the field.

    I need to play with my unit more. Ive downlaoded info that I have entered into the Kestrel to their Link site but I think there is other Kestrel downlaod or customer service pages I need to store my rifle info and allow for me to enter info via a keyboard rather than the clumsier (but easy) method on the Kestrel.

    Quick question on these, from a mounting perspective (badger), does the sportsman mirror a 4000 or 5000 series kestreL?

    Just got mine in and I didn't realize it came with the weather vane attachment. What a cool piece of kit at an absolute killer deal! Get one before they are gone!
