CUPS 4.0 customer feedback from Sweden

I could go 100 meters away from the instrument without any obscured and it worked fine

- Björn Erixson

My impression after delivery on Calypso CUPS 4.0.

I was searching on the web for a wind instrument with wireless connection to my 30 fot sailing boat.

I found after a while Calypso which I thought looked interesting. I compared it with the Nexus / Garmin and Raymarine. These were the old technology with display instruments and were twice as expensive.  I wanted to use my iPad mini and iPhone which I already had.

I have never heard of Calypso in Sweden so I emailed some questions to Calypso Marine Instruments. 

After getting answer I decided to buy it. I order and paid and after 5 days I got it. Everything I ordered was in a fancy box with instructions on the back.

I downloaded the app Calypso "Anemotracker" into my iPad mini and bolted the instrument for instruction took 5 minutes in all.

One of the 4 hole between mast bracket and wind instrument did not fit so I needed to drill to make it fit.

To test Calypso I set up the instrument on an outer wall and test and it worked instantly without any problems both with mobile and Ipad. I could go 100 meters away from the instrument without any obscured and it worked fine. Also had a Garmin GPS device, Garmin GLO which also was connected by Bluetooth at the same time as the Calypso and this was no problem.

I let it sit up for a few days and it worked all the time, even though the snow came and it was -6 degrees Celsius.

I am so far very satisfied.

I will return with more experience in the summer when I launched my boat and tried it on the lake.
