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!

The GLM 50 is a replacement for the DLR165. My issue is that the unit defaults to measuring in 32nds and I need 1/16" like the DLR165 did. GLM 50 packaging is deceiving as it clearly states measures in "1/16" Accuracy". There should be an option for choosing defaults round-offs. I called Bosch support and was told that is not an option. Was also told all their distance measurements are defaulted to 32nds.

    Time saving tool!

    By 

    from Bloomington, IN, United States

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    I recently bought the GLM 50 for a specific job. Before bidding I needed to measure each room in a large commercial property, some of which were much longer than any tape measure I own. This laser distance measurer worked flawlessly...just aim and read the display. That's it. It really is that simple. The more advanced features are straight forward as well as the display makes it clear which value you are inputting. It seems to be built very well. Adding a back-lit display seems like something you wouldn't necessarily need, but after having the feature, I wouldn't be able to live without it. If I had to choose something to improve it would be the carrying case. It is snug around the unit and requires two hands to push the measurer in. (but it won't fall out!) I would also prefer a clip like a tape measure has on the back instead of a velcro strap that must be hooked around a belt. Neither of these case related issues alter my opinion of the purchase though, but they are minor complaints.

    Extremely accurate and easy to use

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    Great for indoor use, not so good for outdoor use as laser dot disappears at about 50'.

    Accurate and Simple

    By 

    from Dallas, Oregon

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    This laser measuring device is simple to use and extremely accurate. I've used it regularly for approximately 6 months, usually to measure rooms during remodels and installations. It is very useful for measuring dimensions such as for window coverings where it is necessary to accurately and efficiently obtain multiple "inside" dimensions.

    This tool paid for itself on the first few estimates I brought it to. I bought mine at Home Depot at a great price. Simple to use and very accurate + it makes me look very professional.

    Used for a layout

    By 

    from New York, NY, United States

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    Nice product - made my life 12,000x's easier when I was trying to do a layout of my building for sale. I like how accurate it is, and it's versatile - you can measure from the back of the unit, or the front. Bosch thought about the end user in this product, and gave us something that will be useful forever.

    Detailed measurements at long distance

    By 

    from Michigan

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    The laser measure gives me great confidence in long-distance measurements. I was trying to measure distances for a basement I was finishing and was consistently a 1/4 inch off because I was missing the marks where i would have to shimmy the tape measure down. This is fast, easy to use, and precise. I'd recommend it.

    Need fast accurate measurements?

    Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

    I bought this to do measured drawings of a house I am remodeling. I could not be more pleased with the results. I use it all the time and it is much better than a tape measure and a lot faster.
