Introducing the BLR10b
Congratulations on your purchase of the Acura BLR10b Binocular Laser Rangefinder 10x42 with Ballistics! Your BLR10b combines an excellent binocular, with an integrated laser rangefinder, a weather station, and a powerful ballistic solver using our proprietary Revic Ballistic Engine.
If you have loaded a ballistic profile from the Revic Ops app, when you press the FIRE button, on-board sensors measure distance, incline angle, barometric pressure, temperature, and compass bearing and send the data to the on-board ballistic solver to provide a fast firing solution.
The BLR10b features Base Wind and Vector Wind modes for basic and advanced solutions configured to provide ultra-fast corrections displayed as a Shoot-To-Range in BDC, MOA or MILs at the measured distance.
The BLR10b uses Bluetooth to communicate with the Revic Ops app, Revic rifle scopes, or other peripheral devices, and uses the Revic targeting modes including Long Range Mode to measure distance in the toughest conditions.

Setting Up Your Binocular
Carry Strap Installation
The Binocular Carry Strap is routed through the attachment points on each side of the Binocular. To attach the carry strap:
Pass the strap webbing through the attachment point from the bottom.
Thread the strap through the buckle (under the 1st layer of the strap).
Adjust the strap to the desired length (ensuring the strap does not slide out of the buckle).
Pull the strap tight through the buckle to secure the strap.
Adjusting Eye Relief
The adjustable eyecups are designed for comfort and to set the correct eye relief. To adjust the eyecup up, increasing the eye-relief, turn it counter-clockwise. To return the eyepiece down, decreasing the eye-relief, turn it clockwise.
The two eyepiece diopter adjustment rings allow you to focus the OLED display and the viewable image for each eye independently. To adjust the focus:
Cover the right objective lens with your left hand, press the fire button to turn on the display. Turn the (right) Display Focus ring until the display is optimally focused to your right eye.
Now cover the left objective lens with your left hand, look through the right barrel at a distant object, then adjust the (center) Image Focus knob until the image is optimally focused to your right eye.
Now cover the right objective lens with your right hand, then turn the (left) Diopter Focus ring until the same object is optimally focused to your left eye.
Confirm focus and repeat as needed
Menus and Navigation
Display Layout and Overview
The Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Display projects information into the field of view and provides the aiming reticle in the center of the display.
The Lower Segment of the display is used primarily for displaying the Range and the BDC “Shoot-To” Range, if enabled by the ballistic profile and displayed in alternating fashion. It is also used in the Settings Menu and Quick Keys to display the values. Ranges over 999.9 yards or meters will not display the decimal place, eg 1245 yards. The selected range unit is displayed to the right.
The Upper Segment of the display is primarily used to show the calculated elevation and windage correction values from the ballistic solver in alternating fashion. The Upper Segment is also used to input a wind direction in clock position, and the wind speed in the selected units. When entering the Settings Menu or Quick Keys, the menu item is displayed here.
The diamond pattern of arrows to the left of the Upper Segment serves double duty by using combinations to indicate the direction of correction needed when displaying the elevation and windage correction.
Additional information is shown on the left of the display. This information includes an indicator when the LRM Target mode is selected, the BDC range icon, the battery level indicator and the Bluetooth icon.
Aiming Reticle and Beam Divergence
The Acura BLR10b beam divergence is approximately 1.5 x 0.06 milliradians (or 54 x 2 inches at 1000 yards), while the inside diameter of the aiming reticle measures approximately 1.5 milliradians (or 54 inches at 1000 yards).
7 Segment Alphabet
When limited to 7 segments for each character, the alphabet is displayed in a combination of upper and lower case letters. The alphabet of the 7 segment display is shown below:
The Acura BLR10b has a 4-button keypad located on the top panel of the binocular. The buttons provide easy access to the binocular functions, programming, and operating commands while using your BLR10b.

Overview and Button Combinations
Measured Values Review
The Targeting Modes of the Acura BLR10b allow you to select or eliminate targets to take the most accurate measurements possible in various field conditions. Switch between the Targeting Modes through the Quick Key of short pressing the MENU button. Press the MENU button repeatedly until the desired mode is displayed.
Near Target Mode
The Near Targeting Mode allows for easy acquisition of small targets without inadvertently getting background targets that have stronger signal strength.
Far Target Mode
The Far Targeting Mode allows obstructions such as brush or fog to be ignored so that only background targets are acquired.
Long Range Mode (LRM) Near Target Mode
The Long Range Modes (LRM) increases the data collection cycle of the laser sensor to improve the target signal and successful ranging at long distances (distances over 1000 yards). Combined with the Near function, the device returns ranges on the nearest target, ignoring the signal from further objects.
Long Range Mode (LRM) Far Target Mode
The Long Range Modes (LRM) increases the data collection cycle of the laser sensor to improve the target signal and successful ranging at long distances. Combined with the Far function, the device returns ranges on the farthest target, ignoring the signal from obstructions.
Power States and Timing
The Acura BLR10b has three power states, ON, SLEEP and OFF. If no button presses are detected after 20 seconds, the BLR10b will enter SLEEP mode to conserve battery power. The BLR10b will power OFF automatically after 60 seconds in SLEEP mode. If a Bluetooth connection was established, power OFF will occur automatically 5 minutes from the last button press. To prevent inadvertent battery consumption, if any button is held down for more than 10 seconds (without acquiring a range) the BLR10b will automatically power OFF.
These settings are maintained during the SLEEP state, but reset once the BLR10b powers OFF:

Installing and Using the Revic Ops App
Install the Revic App
Your BLR10b calculates a ballistic solution based on a specific ballistic profile. Profiles are created and stored on the Revic Ops App and synced to the BLR10b through bluetooth communication.
Download the Revic app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, revicoptics.com/app, or simply take a picture of the QR code and you will be taken directly to the app store
Creating a ballistic profile
With the Revic app installed ballistic profiles can be created to sync with the Acura BLR10b. Use the Profile Module within the app to program the ballistic profile of your rifle. The Creating A Ballistic Profile video details how to create ballistic profiles.
To connect the BLR10b to the Revic app, navigate to the sync module in the app then power on the binocular. In the Revic app, the available devices will be shown in the Sync Module. Select your BLR10b Device ID number from the list by tapping the grey connection signal icon next to the device name. Once the device is connected via bluetooth, the bluetooth icon in the BLR10b will remain solid, and the signal icon in the app will be illuminated.
Sync a Profile
The Acura BLR10b will provide the ballistic solution for a specific ballistic
profile in the rangefinding binocular display once the profile is synced to the BLR10b. To sync a profile, select your desired rifle’s profile listed in the Sync
Module of the Revic app by tapping the sync icon next to the profile name. Next, press the Sync button to transmit your desired profile to the connected BLR10b device. The app will confirm the selected profile has been successfully synced to the binocular.
To confirm which profile is loaded into the BLR10b, navigate to
MENU>MODE>PROF. The profile name will be displayed scrolling on the Lower Segment display in up to 8 characters.
Bonus Function: Transmitted Shot Vector Data
With a Bluetooth connection established between the Revic App and the Acura BLR10b, shot vector data can be transmitted to the app. To display the shot vector data, navigate to the Ballistic Calculator Module in the app. The laser icon will be displayed in the range window of the Ballistic Calculator Module indicating the app is ready to receive the shot vector data. When a range is acquired by the BLR10b the range distance, azimuth direction, and shot angle will be transmitted and displayed in the Ballistic Calculator Module.
Ranging a Target
The steps and behavior of ranging a target is the same for either Range Only or Profile ranging mode settings, however, the Main Screen will have more or less information respectively.
Press and hold the FIRE button to initiate power on. From the Main Display, the FIRE button can initiate three methods for ranging - Single Measurement Mode (SMM), Multi Measurement Mode (MMM), and Long Range Mode (LRM).
Single Measurement Mode
Multi Measurement Mode
Long Range Mode
Base Wind Mode
Vector Wind Method
Many advanced ballistic calculations have wind and elevation corrections that are directionally dependent. For example, spin drift is always the same direction as the barrel twist. To add spin drift to the wind deflection, the wind direction must be identified. Elevation and windage corrections for aerodynamic jump face a similar requirement. In scenarios where advanced corrections are required, we enable the Vector Wind Method by entering a wind direction and the wind speed. The direction entered is the target relative clock direction of wind origin.
Enter a wind vector using the method outlined in Quick Keys.
The resulting wind solution is shown in the Upper Segment display, and the Wind Clock indicates the direction of the wind adjustment.
The ballistic elevation adjustment solution is calculated for each range acquired while the device ranging mode is set to profile. The elevation adjustment is displayed in the Upper Segment and the Wind Clock displays the vertical direction of the adjustment.
Ballistics with Shoot To Range Enabled
The Shoot to Range or Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) is enabled in the Ballistic Profile of the Revic app. With the profile synced, the BLR10b will display the BDC solution as well as the line of sight range and the ballistic elevation and windage corrections. The shoot to range or BDC is displayed in the Lower Segment (when the BDC icon is shown on the left), alternating with the range distance.A Back Mask Liquid Crystal Display (BMLCD) is mounted within the optical system and projects information into the field of view using a beamsplitter.
To enable the shoot to range in the Revic app toggle the Ballistic Turret option on in the Ballistic Profile.
Ballistic Solution Temperature Sensitivity
The ballistic solution is dependent on the environment conditions. The BLR10b is equipped with on board sensors to measure the pressure and temperature each time a range is acquired. There will be a response time (typically between 2°F- 4°F per minute) while the unit reaches ambient temperature if your binocular has been warmed by your body or vehicle climate. Allow time for the device to acclimate to the environmental temperature, or manually adjust the binocular temperature with the temperature override as described in the Settings Menu section of this manual.
