Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A. When the unit is in yards when the device is turned on, simply press quickly the power button as you look through the eye piece; then, depress the mode button for about five seconds and you will observe that the unit changes from yards to meters.

The Bushnell Tour V2 Golf Laser Rangefinder is probably the most convenient rangefinder for an everyday type of use, but still depends on the user’s budget and actual need for it, as it is still a hobby investment.
I would suggest this product especially for the beginners, who are yet to care for the other technological features that the other Bushnell rangefinder has, since it provides mostly the most basic function of a laser rangefinder.
More care for it is required, as it is compact in size, even though it can fit just about anywhere, it does not mean that it is not prone to external factors for breakage. Also, unlike the normal sized Bushnell laser rangefinders, it has less advanced digital features and is not waterproof.
