      I've used this to take measurements of existing buildings to create renovation drawings. At first I double-checked the laser readings with a tape mesaure. But the readings were consistently correct so I learned to trust it. It is extremely handy and quick at taking measurements where it would be a pain to snake a tape measure around and over obstructions. I just needed a clear horizontal shot and with a click I had the dimension reading. It was also very useful in getting high window sill and head heights by using the pythagorean function. For outdoor measurements in daylight, I made a reflector plate by adhering reflectorized tape strips onto the back of a clipboard and having someone hold it at outside corners where I did not have a target to hit. The reflectorized tape makes the laser dot flash bright enough to see and get a good reading. For one man measuring, I just use a 2" x 6" plastic strip from old window blinds with reflectorized tape. At outside corners, interior or exterior, I attach the strip with putty or duct tape and shoot the laser at it from the opposite corner. Works well. Overall, the unit works very well. Only complaints are how the laser doesnt seem to shoot parallel to a wall when I snug the unit against a wall. I have to angle the front end slightly away from the wall which sometimes makes for a shaky reading because it takes some effort to push the button to get a reading. A backlight for the lcd panel would have been nice. The case is a bit too snug to use easily. Also wish it had a gyroscope that would provide audio feedback that the unit is level before taking a reading - the level bubble is hard to see. BUt these are nitpicks - this works very well and I'd recommend it to anyone who needs to take building measurements. The pythagorean function is a big plus too.

      I'll be returning the GLR225 this week.  Needed it on a whim after not bringing what I needed.  Seemed to be the best out there, but the darkness of an industrial building, makes this practically useless.  Am I right in seeing that lower end models have a backlit option??  Will likely replace with a Bosch, but pretty well bummed they didn't take care of this from the get go.

      One star away from being AWESOME unfortunately

      By windowguy

      Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

      I really like the ease of use and function of the GLR225, HOWEVER it is just one feature away from being completely worth it. This device will not allow you to edit or change the value of the measurement to a custom setting. I need measure inside mounts for window coverings, I just need these measurements to the nearest 1/8 of an inch. This unit is hard set to 1/16 of an inch settings, which is great for more precise needs, but there is no way to adjust or change the default settings to anything else. Several other manufactures of laser measurement devices offer customizable settings to meet the users needs, I just thought this one would be comparable, but it was not, so shame on me for not researching this one in more depth before I purchased. Other than this comment the unit is solid if you take it as it comes and don't need any custom settings. Bosch engineers please add this function into your future product development lines.

      Amazing Laser Measurer

      Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

      Been using this since 2011 to take dimensions of jobsites for my products. I love it. It is super accurate and has never given me any issues. I have dropped it numerous times, sometimes from a high height, and it has never broken. Going to buy a second one for one of my installers. I love this thing!

      quick payback

      By Charley

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

      I bought this laser measuring tool to do measurements for a large interior crown molding job. The learning curve was very quick. The measurements were extremely accurate, I was able to cut the crown molding off site and install at the job with minimal on site adjustments saving a lot of time. In short this tool paid for itself in one job.

      Dead accurate

      By Vickey

      from Acton, Ontario, Canada

      Comments about Bosch Tools Laser Distance Measurer:

      l bought this tool about a month ago; l have had others (Cheaper ones) but they're just not that accurate,The other ones send out a cone shape that can bounce off of pictures etc. hanging on the walls. The Bosch send out a pin point laser.   l use it for estimating in square footage.l highly recommend this product. lt comes with a pouch that won't fall off your belt and is practically theft proof.
