Wild game animals and birds have a keen sense of smell and they can quickly detect your presence if your position is downwind. Even if you have a good camouflage, the wind will betray your position.
This is the reason why seasoned hunters always consider the prevailing wind direction when they go on an expedition. Before going on a hunt, they check localized wind direction in order to find the best hunting position.
The good news is that you can now use your iOS device to accurately determine wind direction and speed. Simply download Primos Wind from the App Store and install it in your smartphone.
The Primos Wind app does not require complicated setup. After completing the installation process, just open the app and enter the specific coordinates of your hunting ground.
The app automatically displays a satellite view of your coordinates and provides the prevailing wind data for that location. You can turn off the map view in order to see the compass that shows wind direction. By getting localized wind data, you will be able to make a proper plan for your hunting route.
Features of Primos Wind App
Primos Wind offers real time satellite map of any location in the United States. It relies on Google Maps for its localization service. The best part about the app’s map display is the graphical compass overlay. It shows a large compass arrow over the map to indicate wind direction.
The app uses your device’s built-in compass to display wind direction. So before you download this app, make sure that your device has a compass tool.
One of the best features of the app is the built-in location search tool. You can manually input the coordinates of your hunting ground and the app will locate it for you. It will also pull data from NOAA to get accurate wind direction and wind speed readings.
The app allows you to save as many locations as possible. Saved locations are automatically stored in the Favorite section of the app. You can quickly access your favorite locations whenever you go hunting.
Another excellent feature of Primos Wind is the integrated weather data interface. The app shows local temperature, cloud cover, chance of rain, wind directions, and wind speeds.
