Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The GLM100C is not Intrinsically safe. We do not make any lasers that are Intrinsically safe (meaning they are not safe for explosive environments even with approved switching amplifiers).

Answer: 
I assume by 'intrinsically safe' you mean can you hurt yourself or others by responsible use. Then the answer is "yes", it is intrinsically safe.
But, just like a sheet of paper, it's not "intrinsically safe" when used in a reckless or irresponsible manner.

Answer: 
Intrinsic safety is a reference to reduce electrical current to prevent ignition of a fuel in specific conditions. This is a question for the manufacturer and their respective engineering department to determine internal electrical stability of the power source.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. This model will measure angles however to measure the slope of a lot we would recommend a rotary laser. Using a benchmark spot and then find where the different high and low areas are.

Answer: 
I've tried using this outdoors for simple tasks and I say "no". [Maybe, theoretically, it should.] The only way it'll measure the angle you want is by 'feel'.
There are other tools out there [digital/laser/transits] that are perfect for the job.

As an estimator, I need to get the width and length of multiple rooms. It would be very nice if it summed up all rooms automatically and gave a total square footage.

So the translation is "no", it will not sum up. You have to do that manually.

330 ft. Lithium-Ion Bluetooth Enabled Laser Distance and Angle Measure is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It measures fine indoors. It will not work outdoors in the sunlight. It measures fine indoors. It will not work outdoors in the sunlight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good but. It is very well done little unit. Works great and I do appreciate any time I am using it. What I do not appreciate is the fact that unit is well over priced comparing to other Bosch units. Having Bluetooth is not a feature nowadays any more and it should not be excuse for high price. Next thing that I find a bit disturbing is that drafting application that is suppose to work along with this unit is not communicating properly and us giving me wrong floor plan. I was told it is because I use Apple platform and Bosch has not develop it quite perfectly. So price at the side I forgot it already but I need new better Floor plan application that would work nicely with my unit. After that it will be 5 star product for me. You may have my recommendation for this unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plays well with Apple. PC Not so much I found the process of process of measurements to iPhone and then to excel on a PC to be overly complex. I measure boats and the angle distance feature is a game changer. Anyone who has to measure curves will love it. In my day job, I'm an Architect, I measure complex spaces with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact but equipped with tons of features Accuracy and variety of features on this laser distance measurement unit is unbelievable. The only downside to me is the location of the holding strap. It could be placed in a better location not to interfere with the measurements done when the unit is on its side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's a lot to say about this little gem. It comes with a lanyard, belt holster, 24" Micro-B USB cable for PC connection and charger. It's smaller than I expected, but study and easy to handle. I found the lanyard attachment fussy and it got in the way, so I ended up not using it. The back-lit display is easy to read except at extreme angles when it washes out. There are 4 measurement locations that can be selected - front, back, tripod mount, and from a 1.5" fold-out pin on the back that allows measurements in corners or other hard-to-reach places. There are a number of units settings that can be changed at any time, but it requires going into the GLM basic settings to change it - it's not a simple button press. I checked the calibration first. Taking 10 measurements at a distance of 10', the maximum variation was 1/32" (0.8mm), handily exceeding the 1.5mm accuracy rating. The angle calibration was off by 0.8 degrees, so I followed the calibration instructions to recalibrate. It was difficult for me to understand the calibration diagrams on the screen, but it's a simple 4-step process. (1) Lay it on its back, (2) swap ends, (3) lay it on its side, and (4) swap ends. The end result was a match within 0.2 degrees, again exceeding the 0.3 degree accuracy rating. When measuring angles and used on its back, angles can be measured from 0 to 60 degrees. When used on its side, all angles can be measured. On its side, it beeps to let you know when you're within 0.5 degrees of level, beeping faster when you reach 0 degrees. The screen automatically rotates from vertical to horizontal when the GLM is tilted sideways, but unlike a smart device where the screen will rotate at a 45 degree tilt, the GLM doesn't rotate until it's within 5 degrees of being horizontal. I found it much easier to just lay it down on its side to get it to rotate rather than hand-holding it sideways. It has a bunch of functions that you can read about in the product literature. The unique feature of the GLM is integration with your PC, iThing, and AndroidThing. All the associated software and applications are free. The GLM can retain up to 50 measurements. These measurements can be downloaded to a PC using the GLM Transfer Software. You connect by USB with the PC, open the GLM Transfer Software, and press "Get Data". It connects to the GLM and imports and displays all the measurements. From there you can transfer them to an Excel spreadsheet, the clipboard to be pasted into Word or Notepad, or a text file. You can also erase the measurements on the GLM. I tested the program on a Windows 7 PC and it worked flawlessly. The only hiccup is that it says "not connected" until you press the "get data" button, leading me to initially think there was something wrong with the USB connection. The Transfer Software displays and exports data in the units set in the GLM The IOS and Android apps do not import stored measurements from the GLM. Once connected by Bluetooth, any subsequent measurements you take with the GLM are recorded by your smart device. The smart device can also be used as a remote control to operate and change settings on the GLM. There are separate settings for the GLM and the app, so you can have one units setting on the GLM and a different one on the app. The most amazing feature is the "sketch" option in the smart device app. It lets you take a picture of the thing you're measuring, draw in measurement lines or angles with your finger (including a neat "zoom" on the line ends to allow precise placement), select an item, and then the next measurement you make with the GLM is attached to that item. I tested the app on my iPod Touch 5th generation (IOS 7) and my Android 4.0 tablet and it worked well on both devices. I used the GLM to take measurements for a heat loss calculation in my house, including window and door area, wall lengths, and room volume. While you can do addition and subtraction in the GLM, I chose to import the measurements for each room into an Excel Spreadsheet and do the final calculations there. There are a couple of things to be aware of: 1) The GLM doesn't pair with IOS devices, you get a "pairing is not supported" message. So don't try to pair it, just open the "GLM Measurement" app and press the "connect" button. 2) Android is the opposite - pair Bluetooth with Android, then open the "GLM Measurement" app.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice...But, A slight challenge for quick measuring... I have only had a week or so to test this thing out and there are noticeable changes that could be made to the unit to make the process quicker and more user friendly. To start with the device itself without the app, it is a great laser measuring device with very tight tolerance. If you want to use it just for that it should serve its purpose well but there are cheaper ones available if you chose not to have any app based ad-ons. Now for the the whole Bluetooth paired device deal...it becomes paired once you fumble through the app and hit the bluetooth button on the device however, once it powers down you have to pair it again and again and again which takes too much time when you are in to measure a job quickly and generate higher profit margins. It is an absolutely awesome concept and I have used it with my iPhone5 and it works as it should but to add dims on such a small screen is kind of not worth the time if you do not carry a fine point stylus because your finger tip blocks view of where a dimension arrow is placed and with quick work this takes up too much time. If you carry a large tablet like an iPad it would work much better but due to conditions, you may not want to break up your personal iPad device in the field given that they are expensive once you get them protected and filled with apps and such. To those getting into the thought of using this device, you should spend a considerable amount of time playing with every function in order to become greatly proficient with the device and the app. I certainly will use it where I have room in the budget on a tough, intricate project but will stick with simplicity on the smaller boxes where a hand drawn sketch will always be much faster. Give it a whirl if you like to be the most advanced person in the office. As I said, it is an awesome concept and will certainly help on largescale, intricate projects or specific items within a project that you want to transport or relay back to the office from your handheld device to an employee at the ready to take info in and modify, resolve any issues apparent in a photograph with dimensions from the device. Once I get more time with this device, I will try and follow-up with a more detailed review...a week is just not enough to go through this whole device and all of its functions. It seems it would be great for estimating but I just have not reached that point of comfort with it yet. The bluetooth pairing everytime it powers off is a bit of pain since most all devices once they are paired will pair automatically when turned on...this is certainly something for Bosch to improve. There are a few coworkers in our firm that lost interest within a minute of playing with the app so I am honestly on the fence about recommending this product but I will to those savvy enough to want to take the time to learn it.
