Great tool, eats batteries too fast
I love the tool, but hate throwing away alkaline batteries. With Bluetooth On, this problem is very obvious. And that seems the only solution with this tool, as rechargeable batteries (NiMH) with a nominal voltage of 1.2V each are near unusable. It honestly feels as if it was designed for Li-Ion batteries but then the production cost was too high and they reverted to "customer-supplied" AAA batteries. I would love to know if I can safely use a custom Li-Ion or Li-Po battery @3.7V instead of the 2xAAA @3.0V (good electronics could be able to cope, but...). If I continue to have to buy AAA batteries, I might just try my luck anyway and hope for the best!

Stopped measuring in inches
I don't know what happened, but the unit I purchased less than a year ago has suddenly decided to not allow me to switch the display from feet to inches. No matter what I try. Pretty frustrated.

Great tool
The device itself is excellent, with a clean interface and simple operation. Docking one star because of the companion app, 'Measuring master', which is free but a little clunky. There are a number of small usability changes that would result in an vast improvement in operation and workflow. (Happy to share full details if the app is still undergoing development!

Happy with my purchase
I am happy with my purchase of the GLM 50CX its easy to use and I am still learning how to use all the features of the MeasureOn app that I think will be a great help with some of the projects that I have in mind.

Hoping for more!
So far, I’ve not been able to get the GLM to Bluetooth to my IPad. While other items will Bluetooth, the GLM will not. I will keep trying and rate at another time.

Enjoying this new tool
This tool has all the tools you could want for figuring jobs or getting tough measurements by yourself. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you can't make it read just 1/16ths. It reads down to the 32nd. It's nice to be that accurate at times. But most framing work switching to 1/16ths would be much nicer on the brain calling out measurements to the cut guy. But still a great tool to keep in the toolbelts. You can find your roof angles in a second. And level 4 directions at a time. Like a transit bubble level is the best way to describe the leveling action. And the layout function is pretty sweet too.

No app for android!
So the whole reason I bought this was because of the Bluetooth connectivity and what it could do. Come to find out weeks later that the measure on app isn't on Google Play Store anymore. They deleted the app!
