Garmin Fenix 6 pro and Truflight ballistics app

Recommended Posts

As title I use a Garmin Fenix and have just found Truflight for it , not tested it in anger yet but it’s looking like it could be a winner , there is lots of data entry points and once set up it does the lot , ( seems to but will confirm later )

it takes all of your current environmental conditions for your position from the sensors in watch , like having a kestrel on your wrist ..

here is a short clip I found on poo tube showing the data input sections 

I do hope it works as good as it looks ,

Indeed

 here’s hoping. I have just been inputting known data from StrelokPro for one of my fav loads into Truflight  and it’s giving me scary accurate results and almost identical data . 
 

think I need to be out in the feild for a testin session asap

 Iv installed True flight to my Fenix 3.

However it appears not to work, its visible in apps but click on it and nothing happens.

I guess my watch does not support it, its no big deal as i use Strelok anyway.

Thanks for sharing though.

cheers

OoToT,

question , and being a bit lazy here, can you pre-load several rifle data sets or is it one at a time?

Cheers

Just had a look and no , it’s one at a time . 
however it’s very easy to change input settings , I can do it in a couple of mins . 
if it’s a garmin your after and the option for different profiles then it’s the foretrex 701 with applied ballistics elite .

I really need ‘instant’ access to multiple setups for a couple of reasons.

I’ve seen the 701 but would have preferred a simpler (smaller) device but if multiple setups are not a feature in the Fenix then the 701 might be the only option? .

Fortunately I’m at the IWA Next week with one of the guys from AB so will have a chat with him re the 701, see what that’s about in detail?

Cheers

OoToT,

Are they easy, once set up, to use i.e. adjustments are direct. I'm assuming (not looked) that profiles on your iPad etc. can be transferred?

Friend has one so I might have a play with that - now the IWA's cancelled ☹️

No terry the 701 is a complete stand alone ballistic calculator that has all its own built in sensors that are  constantly updating as  your environment is changing .

it has the AB elite software that has all the bullet databases ect .

to be blunt it’s takes the pi55 out strelock pro ect ect .
