Okay, I broke down and bought this pro kit. Thinking it was a really good one, even though I have a Shooting Chrony Gamma and Ballistics Printer setup already. What can I say, I wanna try new items to see. Got the unit in and set it up. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone and a Amazon Kindle Fire HD. I want to use either or both as my display and recorder. There was a free app to download to install on the Samsung which I did. The unit came with a long 3.5mm stereo patch cord to connect the chrony to the Samsung. Well, it didn't work. No connection or data. Contacted their customer support and they informed me they would send me a USB cable to interconnect the Samsung AND the Kindle Fire HD to the chrony unit. And they also gave me a link on Amazon to download the free chrony app for the Kindle.The USB cable came in. Tried on the Samsung, no go. No communication at all. I even went into the phone settings and set the USB to debug mode so it could communicate with other devices through the USB post, no help. I was told by Charles (cca50) that the Battenfeld CS folks sent him a firmware upgrade that made the chrony work through the headphone cable. The CS folks told me that firmware was a work around and did not fix the issue. So they send the USB cable and adapter. LOLAfter flashing the unit with v2.34 firmware, I was able to connect the phone to the chrony through the headphone jack. The app shows connection. BUT, it still does not read anything. I get nothing onscreen when I have activity on the chrony. So, as of this moment, I cannot get ANY connection from the chrony to the S5 through the USB port. I can get connectivity through the headphone jack but no data comes across. And the Kindle, dead since the app does not support the Fire HD tablet.So, I have compiled all of this and sent it to Battenfeld to see what they can come up with. I'm sure some of you have this unit and have it working. Fill me in on what to do so I c an get this thing recording and sending a shot string to my computer so I can chart them.MANY thanks AOT!!!SAFE & Happy Shooting!!!!Dave
Dave, go into the settings on your phone and ensure the usb has data enabled. Just a thought.
Dave, do you get a reading on the screen of the chronograph? Just not showing up on your device?
I have the same kit. I use an iPhone 5 with no problems.Buy an iPhone? Yeah. I'm no help, am I?
