Hello everyone!

An Apple OS / iPhone app update for the new FX Radar Pocket Chronograph was made available yesterday - not allot of changes apparent so far and haven't had a chance to run it with the hardware yet, but there appear to be a few new features worthy of mention.

Version 1.22.33

A +/- Calibration function has been added for fine tuning accuracy
Measured units now has a second line, so presumably Velocity and Power can be calculated and displayed simultaneously.
Graphics appear brighter and with a few new colours.

Beyond this I'm not seeing any major changes in terms of static display -will test it out with the Radar unit itself over the weekend and report back with additional findings.

Cheers!

Avianmanor

PA just shipped mine today. Looking forward to this. Plus, was able to get it for 20% off + free shipping at the Pyramyd Air Cup last month. Ended up being $160 US.

That's not shipping to Canada... We can't enjoy the free shipping deals and need to add a lot of extras...

Thanks for the info, I just placed my order with AGS. Can't wait to get it soon. I am really sick of getting errors on my Caldwell chrony, too.

I believe you're all really going to enjoy the consistency of this relatively inexpensive chronograph. I do hope FX gets someone skilled on the job of writing software, as the current app leaves allot to be desired in terms of features. The CE Pro Chrono DLX app is head and shoulders above the FX, which is a shame considering the potential of this system as a whole. Time will tell but even in it's infancy, the FX Radar is so easy to use and does give you the most important information without having to mess around with lighting and a big box that is always at risk of being taken out by a flyer. No going back for me -kind of like making the transition from a Springer to a PCP.

Please keep us posted on your new toys and experiences as they arrive from AGS. For the Bold and Brave, at some point I'll write up a modification to the FX that will allow powering the unit from a standard USB, thus eliminating the need to fiddle with batteries.

Cheer!

I think the FX chrony would be more satisfying in my hand as I don't think I would be a serious tuner and it would be alright to me for the basic functions ~ just hopes the user interface is good and convenient to use ~ will see very soon!

Wow!

Looks like AGS has already sold out their entire inventory of FX Pocket Radar - item now shows “Out of Stock”.

“You snooze, you lose”.

Looking forward to some performance feedback from other members.

Cheers!
