by Q####:

Does everything it says, connects, logs, and views real time all of my weather data coming from my Kestrel 5700. BTW love the new K5 series! Many welcomed improvements over the 4 series

Rarely connects to the DOT seamlessly.

The low/hi temp alarm fiction is lame, only works in app. Also the alarm is not loud at all. I'd like the alarm to be able to wake my in my sleep if my greenhouse is getting cold in the middle if the night. Other them that I'm very happy with it.

Underwhelmed – is this app from the same company that made my excellent Kestrel 5500? Cannot change Wind Spd from m/s to km/h or when in Imperial from mph to Bft. In fact cannot do any changes to engineering units except to switch between Metric and Imperial and then the units are non changeable. Cannot reorder the measurements on the Readings screen. Wind direction displayed in degrees only whilst on the 5500 it displays compass point and degrees. Yeah sure I can do the mental arithmetic to convert Link degrees to approx. compass points but it hurts my head. Downloaded the Link manual and can see nothing in it to solve my above issues. Maybe some other users have it sussed? So, its use for me – upgrade my 5500’s firmware. Tick.

Yet another very poor straight port/copy from IOS, Unable to see Fonts well, they are very small on Xperia phones, Z4 Tablet font sizes seem ok, app will only display in portrait. Signal from Drop 3 is shocking even when your close to it. Why can i not add any more than 3 items to the Dashboard ? logs readings can be set for 2hr the next selection is 6hr readings? why not every 4hrs. Date format is in USA standard only. you really need to look into this very bad outdated app please Nielsen-Kellerman

Всё работает ОТЛИЧНО!!! Беда только с точками и запятыми. А так всё ОК!!!

by C####:

Unclear if this works with the 4500 based on the description. Please update the description.

by F####:

It works, but the UI is an abomination. For example, when you are reviewing data the "show" button cover the buttons for changing pages on the log screen. While looking at the graphs, the screen centers itself unless you are zoomed in, which makes it very hard to keep track of data. I hope that they revamp the whole UI soon. Also would be nice to have more that 3 items on the dashboard, or maybe a widget? But a widget would take too much work, this is clearly an iPhone app port.
