Bosch GLM 80 range finder


A few weeks back, while at a client’s place, I was pulling out my measuring tape to measure something, my friend reaches into his bag and pulls out this Bosch GLM 80 range finder. I thought it was pretty cool. This really will help when you want to measure high ceilings for example. I thought of getting one but then again, I thought to myself, how often will I use it? These are the specs of the unit:

  • Measures distance up to 265 ft. with up to 1/16″ accuracy
  • Built-in tilt sensor — calculates angle in two axis for more accurate measurements
  • Integrated lithium-ion battery — for up to 25,000 measurements per charge
  • Backlit display with tilt-screen technology — offers easy viewing in all directions
  • Min/max. measurement mode
  • Multi-surface area mode

I say again…a useful device to have but in my line of work, where I will be using it once in a blue moon, I will pass.
