I have two issues with this product - the price point is high, and it's too heavy. We used it to measure some angles for a tiling/baseboard project we were doing. Really it was too much tool for the average home project. But I think it's too heavy to use on a work site and over your head - as is shown in the sales photos. The angles appear to be accurately read, and it does store 2 measurements - so the fact that its' an old-style display that only reads from one angle isn't a horrible turn-off. The level feature also works as accurately as our other level. However, again - when trying to level while on a ladder installing our garage door opener, it was too cumbersome and thus I switched to the regular light-weight level. Overall, I think it's well made and does what it says it's going to do. But, the price point is a bit steep and instead of being a multi-tool to replace several others, it truly a specialty tool used in very few situations.

The display on this Bosch Digital Angle Finder is only visible when looking at it straight on. At any other angle one cannot read the display. This makes using the product extremely awkward. I like the feature set. It tells you both current angle and grade above or below level. Buttons on the unit allow you to determine Miter angle for cutting miters on boards to meet at a corner and Compound Miter (measure Spring angle and corner angle and receive miter angle and bevel angle). The unit also displays grade in degree, percent or inch/feet and can produce a tone when the desired grade is reached. There is also a laser built in which can be switched on and off as needed. It also comes with a nice protective case. The product seemed to be calibrated properly when I compared it to another level. I appreciate the miter finding capability. It will make molding installation far simpler. Unfortunately, the product let me down in a couple of key areas. First is the display. Trying to read it while using it in a real world environment is near impossible. Second, the locking wheel to lock in the angle does not hold the angle unless one really cranks down on the wheel. Unless you can crank down on that wheel while holding the product in place the angle will get knocked out of position while turning the knob invalidating your reading.

Bosch Miter Finder Digital Angle Finder with Inclinometer is a profession tool with uses beyond carpentry and framing. It'll be most used, in my opinion, for replicating angles in making miter saw cuts. It can transfer from a wall or surface simple miter angles and compound bevel angles. This is done in its simplest description acting like a large digital protractor. To use the tool its first fitted to an angle, such as in crown molding or baseboards, then locked in with a knob on the end. It also gives a digital angle reading, plus other information and that can be used to copy the angle on a compound miter saw. Another use is as an inclinometer that works in ways similar to that of a level. It does have two standard level vials, vertical and horizontal. As an inclinometer, It will give you inch/feet digital readings and additionally, has an audio feature. Once set the tool can be taken to another spot to check or set a point of inclination. It remembers the earlier setting and will sound a beep when the tool's set inclination point is reached again. Still another use, has a laser up to 100 feet for setting a line in conjunction with the inclinometer or as a simple laser line. The multi-tool uses two screens for readouts. The left screen is for the inclinometer readings and the right screen for miter saw angle readings. It comes with a memory feature that can save one reading for later recall. All the menu buttons are below the two screens for setting the tool including: turning it on/off, enabling the laser and audio feature. Additionally, the units calculation button can toggle various readout setting: in/feet, degrees and %'s. The angle screen displays remaining battery life (four AA's) and information on the other screen for the tool's direction to move the inclinometer to its preset position. For overhead work the readout is automatically adjusted so you are always reading it right side up. It comes with a soft case, batteries and a leg extension that's placed on the tool base for taking readings in certain special situations. This is a versatile tool, but as I mentioned, will be used by many for its angle protractor functions. For those that just want these angle finder functions, a smaller one is available on Home Depot (GAM220MF). These tools are precision instruments and some care is necessary in handling it to maintain accuracy. To this end the tool has a calibration procedure for checking accuracy. The tool's greatest value is its accuracy that is factory set to be much less than one degree. I checked my tool roughly with a framing square and it was exact, spot on. Both pro's and others will find savings in using it from less waste material because of wrong or inaccurate cuts. I found it takes a little time to fully understand it all, but once achieved it all is quick and routine.

I’ve found this to be a very helpful tool for use in a limited number of applications. My ranking of the usefulness of the “five” functions provided by the tool, from most useful to least useful, is as follows: (1) level, (2) inclinometer, (3) digital angle finder, (4) miter calculator, and (5) protractor. Although I’ve found it easy to use, I’ve also found that its size and weight severely limit its applicability for functions (3), (4) and (5). Its specified weight is a bit over 3 lb. but it feels heavier when manipulating it. Its 27-inch-length (folded) contributes to some significant unwieldiness. For example, the unfolded lengths of the base and foldout legs makes the tool cumbersome to use to set cutting angles on my miter saw. I haven’t had occasion to use the laser beam to project “grades” to distant points. The laser beam is red (650 nm) and very bright. The spec’d working range of the laser is 100 ft. I measured a spot size of 5-mm at a distance of 25 ft. The optical quality of the beam is outstanding; similar, I think, to that of surveying instruments. The beam is highly coherent at 25 ft. with well-defined diffraction rings surrounding the spot. The GAM 270 MFL comes with a very nice padded carrying case/pouch with zippered opening. It’s easy to unpack and pack the instrument. The printed instructions are on a folded manual 11.4 inches long by 3.6 inches wide. Despite the unusual size, the manual is easy to hold and the type – though small – is easy to read. The manual is sized to fit in the carrying case. I recommend this instrument if you think you will use all or most of its five advertised functions. If you need only a digital level/inclinometer and a digital angle finder, you can probably pay less for more compact and easier to use individual instruments.

This is a beautiful tool but at this price point there are less expensive alternatives. It is better than everything else, I just question the price point. Perfect for installing crown molding to measure inside or outside angles to cut the perfect miters. It saves up to two different measurements. I received this miter finder digital angle finder with inclinometer for free to write this review.

Yes, Bosch, there are many ways to package the technology in your closet but this 'package' will leave many a [prospective] buyer/user scratching their heads. First, it IS a quality product. It feels good. Second, it IS cumbersome and, in many instances, unuseable! With a GLM100 and a digital protractor, you can do just about anything this monstrosity can do ... and still have a free hand and a lot of money in your pocket. Third, the digital readout is beautiful ... from one, and only one, perspective ... face on; so, you're either going to be standing on your head, laying on the ground, or in some other contorted position to read the darn thing. And I can't see this thing on the jobsite ... big and awkward and delicate. The good news ... the case can be used to tote your cue stick! Bottom line, a sleek product with no redeeming qualities. As a BOSCH fan, that hurts me to say.

When I received this product if was 1.5 to 2 degrees off and I went to calibrate it, but oh wait there is no way to calibrate this product. I called bosch and the person on the phone did what I did and looked through the manual, and came to the conclusion that I should return it for a refund.
