Customer Questions & Answers

I would like to know if this measurer a Cm work

Asked by: Sarwat
It will not tell you distances in centimeters, but it will tell you in meters with 3 decimal places. If you are comfortable with the metric system you should be able to convert 1.376m to 137.6cm.

Hi, I would like to know if this measurer requires a tripode to work.

Asked by: Frank
No but it would make for more accurate reading if you can't put it on the ground or against a wall. Just holding it in your hand will cause an inaccurate reading.

Does this remember more than one measurement?

For example, if I wanted to measure height, width and length of a room, would I be able to view all three measurements when I got back to my drawing, or does it only remember the most recent measurement? Thanks
Asked by: KayFB
It remembers the last three measurements recorded.

165 ft. (50 m) Laser Distance Measurer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition To My Toolbox I use the GLM 50 for custom measuring on commercial and residential job sites. The measurements are fast and accurate. I have been using the GLM 50 for a couple of years now and it is just as reliable as it was when new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely precise As an architect, I measure existing homes a lot. It would not be possible without this laser measure. It is extremely accurate and does not seem to have any trouble with measure to mirrored or tiles surfaces as some others do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product Works as described and measurements are as accurate as described.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handle as a Thumb I frequently find myself in the field gathering as built information for the architectural project I do. The GLM 50 helps me to make quick, accurate measurements with just one hand. The measurement memory is fantastic. No need to try to stretch measure tape across a room and write down measurements. The Bluetooth feature is something I wish I could exploit to link the GLM 50 directly to my laptop and Autocad. I've requested the Bluetooth interface protocol from Bosch, but have not received any usable response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and accurate This laser measuring device is simple and dead accurate. I still cannot get over how accurate it is even when measuring from a 100 ft away from the target. Haven't used all other features yet but am sure they are as good as the distance measuring feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient, accurate & READABLE Bought 2 other brands. Could not read the fractions....too small. All numbers very readable on GLM 50 and rotating screen is the best. Solid unit and functions are easy to access and use. Very accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed! Great tool for easily recording measurements, love the bluetooth function that records onto my iPhone, no need to carry a pad and pencil.
