    Amazing except for Bluetooth
    Better than expected, very user friendly, no longer have to do long equations for accurate measurements.

    The only issue/disappointment, is that the Bluetooth functionality. It is not working, so I am unable to download measurements and make use of the Bosch apps. I have tried four devices and none of them recognize the Bosch GLM 50. This wouldn't be a problem but it was the main reason I purchased this model. I will be returning it for a new one. If Bluetooth worked this would be 5 stars all day.

    I spent some time researching this laser tool and it has performed as I expected. I will admit that my preference has always been DeWalt, however I'm very happy.
