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.

Fast, Easy and Accurate.

By 

from Santa Monica, CA, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

My only problem was trying to decide which unit to purchase. I chose the GLM 50. The device is of good size, very easy to read and very accurate. I tested it several times using a tape and it was better than specifications. If you do not need the additional functions of the higher priced units, I would highly recommend the GLM 50.

Very Useful Tool

By 

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

I have had this tool for just over a year now (purchased Dec 2014). I purchased it for my job as a home, farm, and commercial insurance inspector as we have to get exterior and interior measurements of the building we are inspecting. Pros: It is very handy, just point the laser and hit the button. The device allows you to select if it measures from the front, rear, or the mounting screw so your measurements are not incorrect. You can use the trigonometric function to measure a wall that you cannot easily access by hitting the end of the wall at a 90 degree angle then "completing the triangle" by pivoting around the tool and hitting the other end of the wall with the laser. You can add and subtract measurements also. Cons: It is very quick at getting the distance, although will take longer if your hands aren't steady (I lay it on a clipboard that I'm holding to help steady it). The laser is occasionally difficult to see in bright sunlight on light colored surfaces. How it functions after a year: After a year of moderate use (in the extremes of Wisconsin weather) it will sometimes randomly turn off, the only way to get the device to turn back on is to smack it with light force. This is not a big problem but it can be annoying. It may just be an isolated incident with my individual device, it's life and it happens, so I'm not upset over it. Everything else on the device functions as good as day one. Final Opinion: This is a great device and it's pros and functionality greatly outway all cons. I will be replacing it with another Bosch laser measuring tool when that time comes.

great small measuring tool

By 

from Ontario Canada

Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

small enough to carry in pocket, comes with caring case (a little tight so need a bit of work to remove and then reinstall); easy to use, quick to turn on and do measurements; simple to change from feet to inches, to mm

As a contractor I can't imagine going to any new job without this tool in my hand. I use this tool so much, that it needs new batteries weekly.

    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.

    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.
