    I use the Angle Pro app on my iPhone. The Ridgid Digital Level app is also very good.

    PS- if you find a used GDL39? No ADHRS, unless it's specifically a GDL39-3D. The current models in the -50 series all have ADHRS.

    G3x provides wind status. I guess I should put some tape over that display to level the playing field. Why confuse things with accurate information!
