Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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.

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

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. If you select volume measurement, then measure the length, width and height, one after another. Upon completion of the third measurement, the volume is automatically calculated and displayed in the result line. The individual measured values are displayed in the measured-value lines.

Answer: 
Yes, it will show either 32nds or 16ths but you do not have control which one it will use. This is because it is extremely accurate and will try to give you the exact measurement. It will not "round" up or down to the nearest 16th. Just be thankful it doesn't give you accuracy to a 64th of an inch!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Accurate...In fact too accurate I'm an architect and I use this measurer when measuring buildings for "existing condition" drawings. Maybe somebody can tell me otherwise, but it measures to the 32nd of an inch. I'd like to set it to 1/4" or even 1/2" in some cases, but I don't think I can change the setting. If somebody knows how, please post. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet Easy to use and not heavy. When you don't time to run up and down sound stages to use this little baby and does the work for you!! May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Time saver and very accurate Measurements are dependable and accurate. Huge time saver. Used it dozens of times the first day I had it. Great value at the special price offered at the HD website. Shipped very quickly. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good deal for the price! Found that Home Depot had the GLM 50 marked down to $60. That's a great deal for the $$. April 26, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OMG, I Love This Thing I'm not a pro, but I'm always in the middle of some DIY project. This laser measuring device has saved me sooooo much time and effort during the remodel of my apartment. When you work by yourself, a tape measure is not very good for long distances. So far, it has been dead accurate. You KNOW that the distance to the little red dot is X. I love it and I get happy every time I find an opportunity to use it. October 21, 2015
