Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. This is a nice add-on to my Astro, so that on the Trip Computer page I can see the temperature as added data. I have it clipped to a strap on my pack, and you just set it and forget it. It's simple, clear and accurate, it doesn't dangle or rattle like a key ring type thermometer, and it is integrated with my Astro, so all my info is one place. The clip is secure, light and seems completely unbothered by rain.
I had a thought that this would be something I might stick in the car and monitor the temperature if I were to leave one dog in the wagon while working the other, but the range that the Tempe can 'talk' to the Astro is not very great, so while it would technically work, you'd have to stay right near the car. This is not a huge disappointment because we are heat and cold smart about working the dogs, and they are usually worked as a brace, so I never really leave one in the car anyway. More of a maybe if... kind of thing.
So clipped to a strap, it is my ideal thermometer solution for hiking, hunting and making sure I have the info handy to make smart decisions for my dogs as the day goes on and we get absorbed in our work together.
