Bosch offers two options for outdoor laser measuring with the Blaze outdoor connected laser measure with viewfinder (GLM400C), and the Blaze outdoor connected laser measure with camera (GLM400CL-pictured). Both models rely on a 5.0-megapixel, 8X zoom camera with scratch-proof screen to find the laser target at up to 400 ft. in bright conditions, expansive indoor space, or against busy backdrops. A built-in inclinometer determines the angle of pitch (tilt angle 360°), maximum/minimum stake out lengths, and double indirect measurements. The GLM400CL model can take photos and comes with memory for 50 measurements and storage for up to 200 images, in addition to a lithium-ion battery. With a measurement accuracy of +/- 1/16 in., the default real-time measurement provides immediate, accurate measuring that automatically adjusts as the user moves closer or father from the target. With Bluetooth connectivity and Bosch's MeasureOn app, measurement documentation can be transferred to a smartphone or tablet while a USB cable can be used for files too large for Bluetooth.
