Answer: 
Yes, it will measure a flagpole. It won't be without challenges to do so. The challenges are you really will need to do that measuring in a darker time of the day or you won't be able to see the laser dot at the top of the pole, and you will be more successful if you have the rangefinder fastened to something like a tripod to keep the reference of where it is stable. You can introduce some errors by Read More
Yes, it will measure a flagpole. It won't be without challenges to do so. The challenges are you really will need to do that measuring in a darker time of the day or you won't be able to see the laser dot at the top of the pole, and you will be more successful if you have the rangefinder fastened to something like a tripod to keep the reference of where it is stable. You can introduce some errors by trying to do it while holding it. Remember, this is figuring it out by trigonometry, and you don't need extra factors in the equation. I don't know exactly how bad the measurement will be if you try it without a stable place for the rangefinder. One last thing, don't measure to the ball (truk) at the top, measure just below it and guess the few inches to add. The ball will be very slightly closer to you and throw the measurement off a bit.

Answer: 
Yes. You simply measure the distance to the base of the pole, then, keeping the back of the tool in the same location tilt the tool up and shoot the laser at the top of the flag pole and the tool will triangulate and figure the height for you.

Thank you for your question. In order to measure the distance there would need to be a target for the laser beam to hit.

Answer: 
Yes, I just did this same thing for running conduit underground. I just drove a stake in the ground at all the points I wanted to measure so the beam had a target to acquire the measurement from.

yes I use mine for this, however it does not work well in bright outside light and you might have to measure in shorter lengths it really depends on what you can use as a target.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good item Good unit, only problem is I need the instructions as I forget which button to press! August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A nice and handy tool for distance measuring! I love Bosch products and have always been happy with their usefulness and quality of build! This laser rangefinder is no exception! I have another one which I cannot find right now! This was a GREAT deal at Home Depot's daily deal price for sure. could not pass it up. I need to learn to use more of its functions to capitalize on the abilities of this great tool! Sometimes having an object to reflect off of for distance measuring can be a problem. I have used it mostly for reflecting off building walls, etc. giving me an easy to hit surface for reflection. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Range finder Works as advertised. I only paid $117, if it hadn't been on sale, I wouldn't have bought it. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product great accuracy All the Bosch instruments work great individually and used together. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Handy This item is very handy. It can measure inside cabinets, ceiling heights, wall heights from a distance, inclines, calculate areas and much more. The one big negative I have is the effort to change functionality. It is not as intuitive as I would like but the functionality is there none the less. May 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality, Confusing operation Excellent brightness for measuring in bright light or dark. Multiple steps required to do extended measurements and confusing directions for triangulation measurements. May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool I utilize this tool daily to measure home sq ft. Excellent for both interior and exterior measurements. Accuracy is great. Much better than the K*balt version. On par with Leica tools I have used in the past. Favorite features include: audible beep, angle indication, measurement addition/subtraction, size, ease of use. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Huge Timesaver As an estimator for a construction company this tool has saved me time and money. I no longer spend time running a tape measure to get dimensions and I don't need a helper to take off large areas. A couple of pushes of a button and the work is done! The laser pointer let's me know I am measuring to the right element. April 25, 2016
