So excited...but all I get is communication error. The bluetooth icon appears on the LabRadar but then disappears and app says communication error booooo. Looks like one other dude on the playstore has the same issue. Works for you? Good luck at Brass Fest!

 

*edit

So after about 50 attempts to connect, reinstallation of the phone app 5 times it magically connected! I installed the app on a tablet and the first try failed but the second try worked! I'm connected! Going to test this out in the morning.

Nice, I was looking into getting one. Perhaps I’ll wait for an updated firmware version first!

Updated my F/W yesterday. Using Android phone (Samsung), I connected easily and it downloaded the current shot info I had. Nice to be able to see the info on the phone. I did have to go to settings and set units for velocity, weight, etc. as it didn’t use what was on the chrono.

 

Looks like I’ll be able to arm from the phone. Very handy and nice improvement!

So went to the range and everything connected and all was good except for the fact that it won't pick up any shots now. Bluetooth or normal operation, I adjusted the sesnitivity, okayed with the distances everything I can think of. But nothing it just sits there armed. I guess I'll reload the old firmware and then send an email off to them. Wish I can share the enjoyment with you guys.

I'll bet it was something in your gun postiton changed.  Go to their webpage and look for DOWNLOADS. they have a new quick start guide that is very helpful.

Wish it was that simple man. But I went through hours of playing with it. I know where the downloads section is, I downloaded the firmware, got the quick start the other day. Its a nice revision too.

 

Played with every parameter I could. Positioning, placement even adjusting baffles to the sides of me. It just sat there and picked up nothing. Bluetooth and no bluetooth just nothing. Tried different pistols too. I'll send them an email and see what they say.

They have updated the firmware a couple of times since the initial Bluetooth activation release. I think they are up to 1.2.2 (or maybe 1.2.1, not 100% sure on that).

Any update Woodrow?  Thx
 
Actually yes. I updated to the newest firmware a while ago and finally got to try it out earlier today. Worked like a charm!

I remembered something about the first bluetooth supported version requiring location to be turned on and I didn't like that. But this one I didn't notice that being part of the equation. I used an old Kindle Fire, that doesn't have location, to pair it up and it worked awesome.
