The APP also has a record and log feature for when you need to record a particular measurement for later referral. Once logged to the APP it will allow you the convenience of exporting the details of the logged measurements to your mobile device or to email them in spreadsheet format.

Any of the Straightpoint Wireless products can be ordered as Bluetooth. However the Bluetooth replaces the Wireless Handheld Controller, so it is necessary to choose one or the other.
There's much to consider when choosing to use the Handheld or Bluetooth. The Bluetooth option offers some advantages, but it also has some limitations. Bluetooth is ideal for close applications with on board data logging. Recorded data can be stored onboard or exported via a .csv file. It is simple to use. And it is much lower cost, as the APP is free. However, because it replaces the Wireless Handheld Controller, the range of use is limited to a close range of 164 feet or less, while the Wireless Handheld reaches a distance of approximately 1/2 mile.
In summary, the Bluetooth option should be considered when the job is close by and data storage is needed. In situations involving work from a farther distance it is necessary to choose the Handheld.
