Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide is pleased to announce the firmware update 3.1.001 for more Pulsar riflescopes, namely Thermion 2 LRF XQ50 Pro and Thermion 2 LRF XG50. Just like the previously released update for the Pulsar flagship riflescope Thermion 2 LRF XP50 Pro, this update enables you to use the ballistic calculations for accurate long-distance shooting and to pair your devices with the new Stream Vision Ballistics mobile application.
Please make sure you use the newest updated version 1.0.3 of the mobile application to ensure the correct use of ballistic calculations.
Accuracy at longer distances
Both above-mentioned thermal imaging riflescopes feature precise laser rangefinder and higher base magnification, meaning, they are perfect for accurate aiming at longer distances. That’s where ballistic calculations become essential. Knowing your ballistics allows you to quickly assess the bullet drop and instantly react to various occurring hunting scenarios.
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 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 3.1.001 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 almost as smooth as if using an optical zoom, making 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. Now the increment step increases the higher the magnification gets.
The new Stream Vision Ballistics mobile application can now be paired with the following Pulsar riflescopes:
Ballistic calculations coming for the Trail product line
An exciting announcement for the Trail users. The firmware update for these Pulsar devices is in the pipeline now and will be announced shortly. Our engineers are working hard on enabling ballistic calculations to your beloved Trail thermal imaging riflescope line. Please follow Pulsar news for more information.
