I hope they setup the app to be able to control the interface from the phone/tablet. I checked their firmware and my unit was up to date when i checked. (updated from out the box)
Yes, he told me that you would be able to control the unit from the phone and you could review the data later without the labradar unit and some other stuff that of course I forgot.

Just an FYI on the Lab Radar. for the *.csv file, there's a folder "TRK" that shows details of each shot. on that file there's a column "SNR".

I couldn't figure out what the heck it is, so i wrote to Lab Radar. Here's their explanation, from Tom Mouser. (also mentioned the android app too)

"The android app is in its final stages of development, and should be ready for release any week now, we will send an email out to everyone who has registered their device on our website at www.mylabradar.com You can also check our Facebook page periodically to see if it has been released.

SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) The higher the number the stronger the signal. As the projectile move farther from the radar the signal gets weaker. When the signal becomes too weak there may be an error in the reported velocity. Weak signals could be caused by small projectiles, poor alignment or an unstable projectile.

Best regards,

I haven't registered my LabR yet with them, maybe i should do that...

haven't heard anything...from my last post, it should be out by now. Hopefully they work out all the kinks. Hope the app runs well off my Pixel2, Nexus7 and Shield Tablet.

Just checked their website, and firmware version is still the same v1.1.5. nothing new yet. :( hope this is not vaporware

When they put it into their newsletter back in October I thought it may actually show up. Now I think it won't ever show up.
I agree. I have an iPhone so I have even less hope for an iOS version. I mean I just wish they offered a little remote like Phone Skope does that can control the shutter on your phone via bluetooth. If the Labradar already has bluetooth that is really the only feature of the app I would want anyways...just the arm and disarm feature. But such is life..... :)

I think the App is a smokescreen to keep sales going.
There have been so many people on different forums from around the world asking for it.
Labradar keep promising to deliver something which should have been available on launch.
If you use it with a Suppressor the LabRadar has to be forward of the end of the suppressor, so reaching forward for the controls when lying prone is a pain.
Dissapointed, I wish I hadn't sold my Magneto Speed V3.

fmjfirearms, you maybe right about the smokescreen and you are 100% correct that the app should have been released with the hardware.

The app is simply a remote control for the device its nothing ground breaking.

I agree it’s nothing more than the little remote that Phoneskope offers to run video on/off or take pics with your phone. Simple on/off via bluetooth shouldn’t be needed to reinvent the wheel certainly.

Personally, i think the bluetooth in the existing units is defective. That is why no app. They've had issues. This puts them in a bad position to actually do the app. If not that then its resources as the company is struggling.

Don't buy one until/unless the bluetooth app is available. Pain in the rear from prone, for me, repositioning to reach the arm button.

Bought mine 4 months ago. Still no bluetooth app!

Just bought one. The Bluetooth issue wasn’t a concern to me. Tired of setting up my Ohler Chrono at public ranges. Since the Napa fires, I have been forced onto public ranges and this unit will give me the data that I need. Maybe the Canucks aren’t as good at the tech thing as they should be.

Had mines for a year now. Used it a lot, almost every range day which was almost every weekend. I log it around in the Labradar soft case. Never have a problem since. I say it’s a investment and a must if your reloader. And, or your just trying to get you SD and ES to a low number. With consistent numbers. Cause your very particular on your reloads
IMO, get one...

I use exactly what dimar linked. It last quite a while for me. Usually I'm not chronoing for a whole range session but I can definitely run it for a few range sessions no problem.

I bought my labradar just over 2 years ago; some initial disappointment with it getting to record shots -- but moving the unit in line with the muzzle fixed that issue.
I use/like their softcase; I tend to keep the unit in the cab of my truck rather than bouncing around in the bed when driving on bumpy two-track roads to get to my shooting spot.
As a registered owner/email subscriber, I don't remember hearing anything from the manufacturer about the remote app until reading some recent NRA show news, so I re-registered my unit. Labrador answered my email and said they had changed websites, but that everybody's info/registration was carried over.
Lastly, if the remote app doesn't materialize, I was just wondering if a guy could find a way to use a camera shutter release cable with some kind of adapter to the Labradar to trigger the arm button while laying out of arms reach.
