The Con-x is full of the generic drop info I first mentioned, and unless you're shooting inside 300 yards and only wanting "kill zone" accuracy, I would suggest you avoid it. Where the Con-x software and app excel are in the custom data. You can use a real ballistic app to generate your rifle and ammo's TRUE performance, and enter that info into the app, which will then update your rangefinder with the data. This gives you the ability to range a target, and have the rangefinder display the target distance AND the true MOA or MIL corrections necessary to hit that target! You can have up to 3 custom setups at a time, and they are easy to setup in case you need to change them. I have mine setup for 3 different rifle/ammo combinations, but you could also set the up for the same rifle with 3 different load types in case you use the same rifle with different loads depending on the prey you are hunting. I honestly can't recommend the pre-loaded data unless 'close' is all you need, but the custom options allow you to have accurate data straight from your rangefinder.
The rangefinder itself is great. I also have the Sig Kilo rangefinder and took them both out to compare side by side. They were both within 1 yard of each other throughout the entire range of the Bushnell Elite 1 mile. The furthest target I could range (a car) with the Bushnell was just over 1700 yards. The Sig Kilo ranged a cargo truck reliably at 2200 yards. I would suggest that most people, myself included, don't need to range 1700 yards or 2200 yard targets. The Bushnell is larger than the Sig, but I felt the extra size made holding it steady a bit easier. The Bushnell also has an attachment point to mount a tripod or monopod, while the Sig is hand-hold only unless you buy a custom mount conversion.
I still feel a ballistic app and Kestrel will get you on target to a higher level of accuracy than the Con-x data from this rangefinder, especially if you're using the Kestrel loaded with the Applied Ballistics data. But if you will be ranging targets at unknown distances, and don't have the time or willingness to use a ballistics app and weather meter, this rangefinder is an outstanding option. For a hunter that might be making 300-500 yard shots, this is probably the best option to range the target and make a reliably calculated shot.
The method of ranging is to center a small red circle on the target object. Two modes are provided to handle background objects, and these modes can be easily selected on the fly to select the closest object or the most distant object measured. This allows one to identify the distance to a small target against a background or a small target in the midst of nearby foliage. These modes must be selected using a button next to the eye piece. It would have been nice if these modes could have been selected via the iphone app.
There are eight different balistic groups preprogrammed but for those who are used to the more conventional methods, like me, the Rifle HD mode provides distance, angle and horizontal distance. For those who prefer to have access to the bullet drop value directly, then a balistic group needs to be selected. The most popular rifles are internally programmed. One can setup three custom groups to cover any rifle. Over 2000 additional balistic groups can be found at the bushnell web site[...]. Impressive.
The iphone app is excellent, but will need to be updated for use with ios10. The app worked perfectly when I was using ios 9.3.5, but after updated to ios 10.0, I had issues with lost pairing. This is an ios 10 problem and I contacted Bushnell to alert them that an update will be needed. It is, I suspect, a problem with bluetooth handshaking. The work around for ios10 is to startup the app, then press the home button until Siri wants to help you, then exit Seri back to the app. That seems to shake things up and the app will reconnect to the rangefinder. I love the ability to read the range information on the iphone. It makes it much easier to adjust the settings on the rifle scope.
The optics have a relatively low acceptance angle and generate a modest amount of eye strain, but not enough to make short term measurements difficult.
The case is very tight and removing the rangefinder from the case is nearly impossible with gloves on. And removing it without touching one of the lenses is also difficult.
There is a lens cap for the eye piece but no lens caps for the laser and optical image ports. This is a more serious flaw and requires that one clean the laser and optical lenses frequently using the provided cloth. An alternative solution is to mount the rangefinder on the rifle, and I plan to do that in the near future.
