    It may be technologically best tool on market but:
    Inches are displayed left to feet. Countless mistakes to write down 3-4 instead 4-3.
    That is a major issue for guy who works left to right - FEET-INCHES-FRACTIONS.
    And do not tell me there are microscopic marks of ' and ".

    The device is a high functioning tape measure until you get it to work with your smartphone. They give you some idea in the tutorials, but plan to spend (not waste) an evening with it. There is a whole lot that I did not find in the tutorials. If there is in depth documentation available, I did not find it and I did search.

    I am a home builder and this measure has greatly improved my efficiency. love it!! I have three now. First one had the smaller display, this one is very easy to read in any light. I have two of this model because I had to send in mine to repair the menu button that fell off. I can’t be without one.

    If Bosch reads this for my feedback I would like to have the option to toggle between 16 and 32 accuracy. Many times I am reducing to the 16th. I would also like to have the case more user friendly on the tool belt. It is too tight to get in and out with one hand. I have scratched up my display keeping it in my tool belt.

    I purchased this for my real estate needs and it easily exceeded my needs. Very easy to use and having the app to create projects is great for my real estate files. I see it will be great for home projects as well.

    I purchased this about a month ago and use it every chance that I get. I mostly use it for doing estimates and it has been very reliable and accurate. I am still getting to know the product though. It seems like when the battery is getting low that the measurements start be inaccurate though.
