Features

The BOSCH® Lithium-Ion Laser Distance Measurer calculates distances using advanced digital sensor technology, making it an ideal laser measuring device for any type of project. Powered by a rechargeable 3.7V integrated lithium ion battery, this laser can effortlessly perform up to 25,000 measurements per charge. This laser distance measuring tool calculates distances from 2 to 265 feet and at up to 1/16-inch accuracy. Its 90-degree tilt sensor measures on two axes, allowing the user to save time by making indirect angle measurements. Additionally, the Bosch laser measurer features a backlit tilt-screen display to provide clear views in every direction. Its minimum/maximum measurement mode determines the shortest and longest distances from any given point, making it ideal for use when measuring vertical or diagonal lines, while its multi-surface area mode evaluates the total area of multiple distinct surfaces that share the same length or height.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent must have tool! I love this tool. When doing a survey for a remodeling job it comes in very handy, not having to move things around and being able to do it unassisted is excellent. Plus its very easy to use and understand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Instrument, Hampered By +/-1/32" Accuracy. I am a preservation architect and former carpenter and purchased this measuring instrument to supplement my tools set for existing conditions survey work on historic buildings. Over the course of the last year, I have found the GLM80 to be invaluable, versatile and durable. In fact, it has won me over, with one notable exception (see "CONS" below): PROS: 1. Rechargeable Battery (that lasts forever on one charge) 2. 2ft Level Interface 3. Brightness of Laser 4. Screen Size 5. Durability 6. Versatility/Features CONS: 1. Accuracy--I purchased this instrument fully aware that it's stated accuracy was +/-1/16", which is more than enough accuracy for the survey work I do in the field. However, the instrument reads dimensions to the nearest 1/32"! I don't know anyone in the construction industry (with the exception of VERY specialized trades) that would want or need dimensions to the nearest 1/32" out in the field. One would think that accuracy could be adjusted/selected as a setting within the programming on the instrument--+/-1/8" or +/-1/16"--but BOSCH Engineering tells me no. Not only is +/-1/32" accuracy not needed by the vast majority of the construction industry, it actually makes survey work difficult! 2. Size of Numerals (Read-out) on Screen, though the screen is plenty bright. (This issue appears to have been addressed by BOSCH in some of the newer models). In summary, I would recommend the instrument--and highly--if it was not for the issue of the +/-1/32" accuracy, which is greater than what was stated on the literature and on this website. BOSCH--please fix this systemic flaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and easy to use I've been using the GLM 80 for the last 6 months, and I've been very pleased with it. The first few times I used it, I also used a steel tape. The accuracy was spot on, so now I trust it's measurements and have not been let down. My uses are almost always indoors. It's very easy to see the dot inside. I did try it outside, and it works great, but at a distance it's hard to spot the red dot in the sun. I had a pair of red glasses that came with a laser level that helped some, but if I were to measure long distances outside I'd probably just grab my measuring tape. I'd definitely recommend the GLM 80 for it's accuracy, durability and great battery life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unbelievable accuracy I have owned this GLM-80 for several years now . This is a tool that i do not use every day , but , invaluable when i need it. For example : , I mostly work by myself . When I install crown molding It is very difficult to take measurements with a sloppy measuring tape. The GLM-80 is accurate to the 1/16th of an inch . It is reliable ,easy to use and extremely accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good I have had this distance meter for a couple years now and it has served me well. The battery lasts a very long time even in cold weather. The only issue I have run into is the accuracy when pointing it at a shiny or metal object. The readings will be off a little when doing so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accurate & Compact 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.
