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 68.

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 3 out of 5 by from building measure friendly The major issue am facing is that am unable to use it in open field, being a government civil engineer whenever i try to use it in day time for short clear distances the instrument works fine, but in majority of day time when using in open field i get error message, it is suitable in building construction but for measuring in open field it has limited use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition to my tool box This was a Christmas gift for me and was the type of tool I would never have bought. However, once I used it I realized how great it is. It is so accurate that it is hard to believe. I tested it over and over on the same measurement and was amazed how repeatable it was. I highly recommend this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tool I install and repair medical imaging equipment and this is an absolutely perfect tool for alignment. Great features and small enough to carry.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laser is the way to go! I no longer carry a tape to measure a job. The laser is so easy to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Accuracy & Spped in doing As-builts I purchased this device to perform as-built capture services for a large Automotive Manufacture. We use to use basic hand tape measures which proved to be both time consuming and inaccurate. This device has saved us countless man hours in the field and increased accuracy dramatically. It takes the "Human Error" factor out of the error process due to mis-reading tape measures. I was able to reduce my field staff by two employees after purchasing two of these devices. Also, I have never had a problem with the device because of Bosch's quality standards! I am one happy customer!! Would highly recommend this device!
