Smart Phone Wind Meter by Nikon

This is cool. Nikon launched a Spot On Ballistic Wind Meter that plugs directly into the headphone port found on almost all smart phones. The Spot On Wind Meter takes an accurate reading of the wind speed and direction and inputs the data directly into Nikon’s Spot On Ballistic Match Technology App on your phone.

The app is free to download for iPhone, iPad and Android and not only provides the precise aiming point on your reticle to compensate for distance, but thanks to the new Spot On Wind Meter, the app will now give you the correct hold off in click, inches or MOA to compensate for wind deflection while using any Nikon riflescope. The suggested retail price of the Spot On Wind Meter is $39.95.

    Cool, but it doesn’t replace a kestrel, doesn’t tell temp, altitude, pressure, humidity.

    • I Remember GPS manufacturers using the same argument against smart-phones and we see how that all ended up.

      It may not replace the kestrel but its a nice tool for low dollars that will be a nice addition to the range bag.
