Happy New Year from MIL Sistemika

MIL Sistemika has added Laser Range Finder support to their PES and Sniper Calculator. Both Apps now support full line of Newcon Optik hand-held range finders.

With a proper OTG cable and a USB adapter users can connect an LRF to their Android device and lase targets. Targets are shown on the map, or range to target  and slope is entered into Sniper Calculator. Very neat!  (See picture below)
