The Kestrel Companion application is the perfect complement to your Applied Ballistics Kestrel Weather Meter for remote viewing of your shooting solution. NOTE: For this application to work it required that you are running version 4.83 and above of the Applied Ballistics Kestrel Firmware. In addition, it requires Bluetooth.
Now, you can mount your Applied Ballistics Kestrel device on a rotating weather-vane mount, update the range to target, and view the solution right on your phone – all without touching the Kestrel. The large display on your phone or tablet allows a quick view of the elevation and windage holds as well as the current weather conditions and gun parameters.
By placing the Applied Ballistics Kestrel in wind-capture mode, your shooting solution will automatically update on the display with the measured wind values and wind direction.
How It Works
As of Applied Ballistics Kestrel firmware version 4.83, the developers at Applied Ballistics have added remote-control capability over the Bluetooth link. This allows for the range to target to be entered into the Kestrel Companion application and sent directly to the Kestrel. The Kestrel instantly computes the shooting solution and sends it back to the Companion application – displaying it for easy viewing.
1) Maximize the capability of your Applied Ballistics Kestrel by allowing it to directly measure the wind speed and direction and still easily view your shooting solution
2) Remote control of your Applied Ballistics Kestrel over the Bluetooth Link
3) View your shooting solution on a large screen
Enabling Live Wind Capture (Firmware Version 4.83)
1) From the solution screen on your Applied Ballistics Kestrel, pressing the CAMERA button while Wind is highlighted will enter the Wind Capture mode.
2) The label will change to "W>" to indicate that the Wind Capture mode is enabled.
3) The moving 5-second average for windage and wind speed will be continually displayed on the wind line.
4) The 5-second rolling average wind measurement will be captured in Wind Speed 1 and the highest wind speed will be captured in Wind Speed 2. This allows you to accurately bracket the wind speed values as well as your shooting solution.
5) When in Wind Capture Mode and connected to the Kestrel Companion application, your windage holds will automatically update on your Android device.
- Complete overhaul of the user interface.
- Added swiping capability to the main screen
- Added range step sizes for easier increment / decrement of the range

Companion reporting within +/-0.05 MOA of Kestrel Elevation and Windage are within +/-0.05 SMOA of Kestrel 4500A w/Bluetooth now. Rating 5 stars for very prompt developer updates to app. As an Authorized Kestrel Meter Dealer I am looking forward to promoting this app to my customers as an Applied Ballistics Companion solution along with their Kestrel.
Joe Installed this app, had a bit of trouble with it (something I was causing) The app creators where quick to respond to my questions and it's now working as advertised. Thank you!
Very useful tool The ability to remote display the Applied Ballistics Kestrel fire solution from the wind vane mount increases the speed and accuracy of long range shooting. Definitely a must for LR shooters using the AB Kestrel.
