A couple of months ago I saw the Bosch GLM 80 being used by our kitchen contractor to measure and quote a job. It looked so easy and accurate I ordered one on-line the same evening. I've used it many times since, as we are having major renovations done to our home. Gone are the days when I struggled with a measuring tape that was too short or too bendy. The GLM 80 laser measures instantly and accurately every time. I've used it outside for fencing measurements too. I'm glad I've joined the laser measurement revolution!

Angle measurements have serious limitations

While the advertisements describe the angle measuring range as being 0-360 degrees, what they don't tell you is that the laser switches off when you use the angle function. It is possible to measure angles in other functions with the laser turned on, but in those settings the angle maxes out at +/- 60 degrees. So if you are like me, and wanting to measure both distances and angles, this may not be what you want.

I bought several of these ...
I bought several of these for my appraisers to be used mostly for outside measuring of homes and commercial buildings. These work great even in bright day light compared to other brands we have used. I did a lot of research before buying this one, because of having to buy so many I had to make sure it would work the way we needed to use it especially outside. My appraiser like this tool also because it is easy to use.

GREAT ITEM, MAKES ALL THE MESSUREMENT SO EASY, THE BATTERY LAST LONG ENOUGH FOR MORE THAN A WEEK DEPENDING ON THE USE.
Accurate & Compact
from TN, United States
I've only had the GLM 80 for a couple of weeks. I've been familiarizing myself with the operation of the unit. And though I think it will become much easier to use, the more I use it, I believe that instructions and reference card that come with the unit leave a person confused. They could have been written better. That's the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5. I've taken measurements around the house, and a few outside the house-and because I was in the shade, I didn't have any issue with getting a reading. I'm curious to see how it goes when I get the chance to take some longer measurements outside. I've performed the multi measurement accuracy check of the unit (page 29 of the manual), and it was consistent within 0.003 feet, (very good in my opinion). I'm looking forward to using this tool to layout and build a new woodworking hobby shop.
Sorry I waited so long to get one

I have been using tape measures for building layout measurement for years. Lots of obstacles and time to get an accurate measurement. No more with the Bozch GLM80 is save time and get accuracy
from Ohio, United States
I love that I'm now able to measure some of the hard to reach and longer areas without needing a second person. The features on this model are great and have worked without problems.

I really love this tool- it has so many more features than others that are more expensive. You can not only measure straight, you can get grade, slope, height, area and more. There is so much packed into this yet did I tell you it will also measure distance? Great buy!
Perfect for a Realto
I use this to measure everything including rooms sizes, ceiling heights etc.
simple,accurate & reliable

I'm a big bosch fan, this has to be the best purchase I've made, even stores the sizes for later, battery last for ever too, can't fault it. well done bosch.
Excellent, Excellent tool!
from Petersfield, MB, Canada
I've been using this tool for at least 6 months now and after tying a few of the other major brands like Leica and Dewalt, this is by far the most dependable and best on the market. Battery lasts forever and does not go dead when you least expect it. Very Precise and almost completely replaces my tape measure. I'd recommend it to any builder of designer.
