Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has announced the launch of their new Ballistic Calculator mobile app available for the iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices. Based on the successful website-based program, this new app is an interactive tool which the end user can take to the range or into the field.
“In the spirit of forward thinking, we wanted those who use our proprietary ballistic reticles to have a ballistic tool that could be used virtually anywhere you have a signal for your device,” Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, said in a statement. “We are constantly striving to provide truly innovative technology that will compliment every skill set for our passionate customers.”
According to the press release, the Zeiss Ballistic Calculator mobile app enables users to pick their exact Zeiss riflescope with ballistic reticle from a drop-down menu. The user can also select factory or hand load data, in addition to environmental variables, and the system will calculate and display the optimum magnification setting. As a result, distant yardages will coincide with the Zeiss ballistic reticle sub tensions. The user can adjust the settings for altitude, temperature, muzzle velocity, sight height above bore, and more.
The Zeiss Ballistic Calculator mobile app can be downloaded at Google Play (Android App) and iTunes (iPhone App) for $4.99. To access the free web version, visit www.zeiss.com/us/sports-optics. See below for additional details.
