Top Features include:
Continuous scan mode: In this mode you can measure up to 540 yards thanks to its laser technology. The device can also take account of any object that might be in the way so it will not be confused by the presence of flags or trees, or sand traps. Even when dealing with these it retains its accuracy to within 1 yard (+/-) This is made possible thanks to the use of Pin sensor technology which ensures greater accuracy.
The lens offers sharp clear vision with multi-layered optics. It incorporates through the lens display for easy reading. It offers a continuous measurement mode which allows faster reading of all the important data. The unit can also be adjusted to accommodate your own visual defects. If you are far sighted or near sighted, you can make a diopter adjustment to the lens. This will guarantee you the best possible focus.
The whole outfit is extremely practical, and it comes with everything you need to use and maintain it. The pack includes a strong shock resistant case and an additional carrying pouch and lanyard. It also comes with battery, microfiber cleaning cloth, wrist strap and instruction manual. Yet it all fits into a neat package that weighs only 185g with dimensions of just 104x72x41, making it easy to carry.
The body is reasonably water resistant and dust resistant. However, it is not suitable for all weather conditions as it is not completely waterproof so needs to be protected from possible damage. Users should also be prepared for poorer results in foggy conditions.
