I've been considering buying a Kestrel 5400 Heat Stress meter, and I have some questions about their Bluetooth connectivity program LiNK. I don't see details on the Kestrel website - I would really like to be able to see the weather data on my portable computing device, but the only app that I see is for the ballistic version of the Kestrel.
Anyone have experience with using LiNK for remote reading of the 5400?

Yes. Got the same model about a month ago (really interested in tracking WBGT). I have not done too much with it, but, I did set it up and play with it a few times.

So, what's the link to a smart device like? Is it only ballistics, or does it give general weather and other info remotely?
