  1. Correct, Push mode merely changes the behavior whether timers gives out data in response to external request or sends data out after internal event. In both cases BT needs to connected so indeed, Push mode has no effect how timer is connected.
  2. If you have a stage (whether steel or uspsa) setup for practice in Practiscore, you can bump number of strings per stage to 9 and enable push mode and your times will automatically advance to next string recording in the app each time you push GO on the timer. So you can do few runs on same stage then review in app. The new app from Eugene will also allow you unlimited number of string memory to capture any number of strings automatically, just work with timer and app will do the rest.
  3. Also will depend on few other factors such as RO discipline in terms of how consistently he/she follows the shooter during the course of fire, indoor/outdoor location, etc. But in general for PCC the "silver bullet" sensitivity is #7 for outdoor. Indoor you may need to lower it down a notch, but it will depend on wall/ceiling lining and length of the range. Even at high sensitivity Commander exhibits really good adjacent bay noise rejection.
  4. Many. Just the closest one I have handy from recent Steel Match
  5. Some info about Commander in today's Rangestorenet podcast @30.32, also great podcast episode covering recent West Florida Steel Match https://soundcloud.com/user-326997282/new-rangestorenet-offerings-and-west-florida-match-review#t=30:32
  6. RO and scorekeeper will still communicate, with bluetooth capability to pull time remotely it greatly reduces change of incorrect time being entered, first because you reduce chance of fatfingering it and second.... well, picture this situation: shooter done shooting and RO gives "if you finished......." command and monitoring shooter clear gun, etc. Scorekeeper does not have chance to see timer just yet, and somewhere during "unload and show clear" next bay fires loud shot that gets picked up by timer adding extra 4 seconds or so. Then RO glances over the timer, calls time, and it gets typed in and error goes unnoticed. However if you have the ability to pull time remotely, as soon as RO starts clearing the shooter, scorekeeper can already download time, and few seconds later when RO calls time all scorekeeper need to do is just confirm.
  7. Connect to Bluetooth on iPhone is very easy, its done from withing Practiscore, just choose the timer to connect to and done. At our local clubs it has been dropped accidentally and occasionally, no issues.
  8. Also check out AMG Lab Commander, with its bluetooth link to Practiscore it completely eliminates human error that is possible when time entered manually. It seems from the situation you explained that perhaps scorekeeper visually mistaken 0 for 9 or considering that those two buttons are close on the keypad, pressed wrong one by accident. With that timer you just press a button on the tablet and entire string gets downloaded into the system. Practiscore also allows you to roll back up to 10 strings in history to review. And timer itself can display you last 3 strings simultaneously if necessary.
  9. The one that Jerry M uses is smaller Check it out side by side, I have them all Here is the pic with Jeff wearing it
  10. I will probably take it to the range today for fun :), will bring picture, it is huuuge!
  11. I scored one off ebay some time ago, 1984! Still works.
  12. Actually there have been, google "amg lab commander"
  13. You can also take a look into Commander from Amg Lab.
  14. To this point, we had great results running AMG Lab's timer tonight and tested remote start functionality that allows timer to be started remotely from PractiScore app, which allowed all shots to be picked up by the timer while maintaining safe distance between shooter and RO and allowing unobstructed passage from first to second set of targets. So while it is obviously important to get the last shot on the timer, it simply adds to the confidence to see all of them (in this case) or most of them (in some other cases) being picked up. https://youtu.be/e6ElU-7wO2c
