    Handy tool
    Pros

    The APP was easy to download to my Android phone and thus far the product is everything it is presented to be. It gives you a more accurate wind speeds on the ramp than a guess from looking at the wind sock. For what it does, the ptice is reasonable.

    Cons

    I haven't used it enough to report any cons.
