Could be a game changer if........
Purchased the tool last week and love everything about it except one thing. A common tape measure measures to a 16th, this tool measure to a 32nd with no option to change it. This may sound like a small issue but the purpose of the tool is to increase the speed of measuring accurately and most likely use the measurement with a tape measure to measure and cut lumber. Having to think about 32nds when using a 1/16 graduated tape measure is a pain, slows down what could be a fast measurement,and increases the likelihood of errors. An option to measure in 16ths would be an improvement. I find myself trying to manipulate the tool to get a measurement that is not in 32nds

Great tool...with a major drawback
Works as intended as long as you are in a low light situation. Otherwise, this will sit in a drawer to be used around the house and not the job site.

Super tool
I like everything about it it’s accuracy is amazing the only thing I would add to it would be the ability to measure to the nearest 1/16 of an inch most things I do I don’t need to measure to the 1/32 of an inch

Very good
Very good on features, not as good as Fluke, but, still a very good quality
When compared with Fluke, Fluke has better working on not favorable conditions, like light.

technology is marching forward, even for construction products!!
love the large digits, easy to read, easy to navigage commands, very intuitie. very flexible for setting where laser reads from which part of the unit.
Another awesome Bosh tool...
includes a target for shooting where there is no end in sight, such as a flat board. great value, great user manual.... Bosch nailed it with this one!!!!

Tool designed by metric guy - big mistake.
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 ".

Learn to use it with a smartphone
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.
