Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide is pleased to announce the firmware update 3.1 for the Pulsar flagship riflescope – Thermion 2 LRF XP50 Pro. After updating your riflescope with the newest firmware, you’ll be able to use the ballistic calculations for accurate long-distance shooting and pair your device with the new Stream Vision Ballistics mobile application. Please make sure you use the newest updated version 1.0.3 of the mobile application, otherwise it might result in incorrect ballistic calculations.
Enriched with ballistic calculations
The newest update delivers a ballistic algorithm that allows you to calculate the trajectory of a bullet and displays the suggested point of aim on the screen of your Thermion. This function requires activation in the LRF settings in the main menu of the scope.
To pair your Thermion 2 LRF XP50 Pro with the new Steam Vision Ballistics application, you will need to activate the Bluetooth connection on your scope, which you can now find in the main menu bar.
The full-featured new mobile application by Pulsar allows you to create several individual ballistic profiles and upload them to your thermal scope. Once the profiles are successfully uploaded to the riflescope, you can disconnect from the app. The calculations are done by the scope itself.
Optimized workflow of the LRF
The firmware update 3.1 will enable additional indications of the measured distance in the centre of the screen next to the reticle. This additional function can be enabled in the main menu of the device.
We have also optimized the use of the laser rangefinder for greater comfort. Two short presses on the LRF button is all you need to get precise distance assessment. The first press activates the LRF, the second measures the distance and activates ballistic calculations if this function is turned on in the main menu.
Flawless use of digital zoom
Moreover, the newest firmware update will make the switch between different zoom levels of 1x, 2x, 4x or 8x almost as smooth as if using an optical zoom. It eliminates discomfort when the field of view rapidly decreases and makes it easier to keep the eye on the target while zooming in.
We have also adjusted the zoom step of precision zoom for more comfortable observation:
