The Kestrel 2500 Pocket Weather Meter has all the great features of the Kestrel 2000 with the addition of a pressure sensor. A three-hour pressure trend indicator helps you to predict fish and wildlife activity and know when the weather's going to turn nasty. Add in the easy-to-use altimeter and you have the perfect instrument for any outdoor activity!

The night vision version of this model (Kestrel 2500 NV) has night-vision preserving backlight to help maintain the user's natural night vision.

4 stars All feature except altimeter work fine.
Mostly it is great and easy to use. One problem..don't you hate it when there is a problem. With the barometer set, that reading is entered in the altimeter screen as a reference. When I select the different screens all is well except the altimeter screen. It shows 85 to 90 feet but I am at 19 feet above sea level. Any idea on how to get a more accurate reading on the altimeter? Thanks
