Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder Review

 

Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Rangefinder is a great laser-GPS rangefinder to use. It has a lot of features. The batteries are rechargeable where maximum rangefinder's batteries are not rechargeable.

I have reviewed a hundred of Real customer's feedback about this device, I found that a lot of people giving the positive feedback about its features and services. But some of the customers were saying that they faced a lot of problems with that device, especially about the battery life. They claimed many times  that the batteries of the rangefinders didn't survive more than one month!

 

Probably you are searching for a good golf rangefinder for some days. It may not be, though. That's why I said "Probably". hahaha

So what I was saying that you probably know now there are two kinds of main rangefinder peoples use to play golf. One is Laser type and other is GPS type. Do you know the differences between them or the advantages of the two? The main advantage or benefit of GPS golf rangefinder is that they don't need to have the visibility of the object to display you the measurements. But it has a slow process than Laser type rangefinder. Besides, Laser type rangefinders are more accurate than the GPS types. And there are some more reasons the laser types has. That's why many people use laser type rangefinder nowadays.

Are you confused? Can't understand what types of golf rangefinder you should choose? Read my article here.

No worries. You don't have to choice any type. The Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder is here to help you. It combines the two types! Yes, I mean that! Just like two in one.

Features of Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder

Let me tell you why I prefer this device to use in the golf course. Here are the reviews of Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder:

 

Accuracy

Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder is the first hybrid rangefinder (did you know that?). So we should give some credit to Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder. It is actually a combination of laser and GPS. This device uses the PinSeeker Technology. It helps to measure the distance of the flag even there is a lot of eye-irritating objects like trees and other hazards in the background. As the courses are totally green, the beginners may find the measuring difficult. So this device is really helpful to the beginners. It can measure 10 to 1,000 yards (300 yards to flag) with an accuracy of +/- one yard. It has a 5 times magnification. It also provides distance to the front, center, and back of the green. If you used a laser golf rangefinder before, you may have noticed that laser golf rangefinder sometimes shows problems to measure in sunlight. But as the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder also has GPS system, it can measure the distance perfectly even in the sunlight.

Rainproof Construction

Let's say you are playing golf on the golf courses and suddenly sky has started to crying. For that, you want to leave the game and take cover under any roof so that your rangefinder don't drink rain water (not for them who don't love rain-golf). But if you have the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder on your hand, you don't need to leave the course alone during the rainfall. As this rangefinder has a rainproof construction! Your rangefinder will never wet in the rain!

Ease of Use

Although laser rangefinder is easy and comfortable to use in the golf course and can give more accuracy than the GPS golf rangefinder, you'll find difficult to use that if you can't see the target. So, in that case, the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder can help you as it has the GPS function too. You can easily determine the distance of the flag (target) although you are measuring from behind the trees or something else. By using that you'll not only get the distance of the target but also you'll know the distance of the front, center, and back of the green. And that thing can make the distance between you and your opponents!

Rechargeable Battery

Batteries used on almost every golf rangefinder is not rechargeable. But the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder uses a rechargeable battery. It can easily be replaced with the new one if your battery becomes unnecessary. This device can run around 16 hours once the battery is fully charged.

But some of the customers are saying that you can play 2-3 rounds with it. Besides, there is no indicator to show if the device is fully charged or not.
