    Would like to see the resolution get better for the next one out
    With HC's they are suggesting 1g res. Hell I'd be happy with 2g
    Right now they are at 10 g

    Have it, Like it. Worth it. Why would you need better resolution? I can charge to within 6'' of lineset with the current .25 OZ. res.

    Many self contained units only take a few ozs of HFC's
    When they eventually all turn to HC's the charge will be reduced even more
    Something like 40% less .25 oz will be N/G for that and is iffy as it is.

    Are you specifically talking about refrigeration?

    Yes
    Don't get me wrong the wireless looks awesome.
    Would love to see this one improved if it is doing well.

    I have one and like it especially how stable it is. What I mean by this is that the weight does not fluctuate so much like when the wind blows.
