Leica updates their venerable line of ranging devices with the 7x24 Rangemaster CRF 2800 Laser Rangefinder. Keeping up with technological advancements and the needs of their hunters, the 2800 gets a range boost to an impressive 2800 yards and adds Bluetooth connectivity to Android and iOS devices running the Leica Hunting app, or Kestrel 5700 Elite weather meters. This connectivity allows users to program their rangefinder to fit their personal preference, while benefiting from real-time environmental information. Combining this data with a pre-programmed ammunition load, a metered range and angle relative to the target, it is put through the app's ballistic computer and displays adjustment recommendations to help your first-shot accuracy in either MOA/Mil turret adjustments, inches/centimeters, or an adjusted range distance. A simple one-button interface provides critical ease of use and a red LED display clearly shows the ranging information in your line of sight in an uncluttered layout. An ambient light sensor can automatically adjust the display brightness so you'll always be able to clearly see the information without overloading your vision, or you can manually select from one of five intensity levels. Designed for durability, the housing is made of a lightweight and durable carbon-fiber-reinforced ABS plastic, and weighing in at under seven ounces, the Rangemaster CRF will be a valuable addition to your kit

This is almost 5 stars. For me and for the Kestrel use case it would be if a couple things were fixed so that the bluetooth Kestrel integration was more reliable. When this works it's awesome. That was my primary reason for buying the 2800 and if that is also your primary reason you might give a pause about this and do some investigation.

The big problem seems to be when the 2800 goes to sleep. And it goes to sleep fast. When you wake it up it does not reconnect with the Kestrel to send and retrieve ballistics information. Sometimes it kinda half connects. It'll send the data and the range etc. does get updated on the Kestrel but the firing solution doesn't make it back to the 2800. Other times they just completely don't talk. It's relatively easy to go into the Kestrel and "force" the connect back. That's pretty annoying given how fast the 2800 will go to sleep.

I have also been completely unsuccessful at getting the 2800 to connect to the "Leica Hunting App" on my iPhone in 'app' mode. So not thrilled about that either. Can't apply any firmware updates to see if this has been fixed.

So -2 stars.

Otherwise for the money it's a pretty good LRF on it's own so it is really these issues affecting the Kestrel integration and the reason I bought it that cause it to get a lower rating from me.

Awesome glass and quality. Use of new leica app is also much better that the 2700b.

Excellent product.
