Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Golf Rangefinder Review


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 rangefinders batteries are not rechargeable.

I have read a hundred customer reviews about this device, I found that a lot of people are giving positive feedback about its features and services. But some of the customers were saying that they faced a lot of problems with this device, especially regarding the battery life. They claimed that many times  the batteries of the rangefinder did not survive more than one month!

You probably have been searching for a good golf rangefinder for quite some days. Maybe not, though. That is why I said “Probably”. hahaha

So what I was saying, that you probably know now, is that there are two kinds of main rangefinders that people use to play golf. One is Laser type, and another 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 do not need to have the visibility of the object to give you the measurements. But it has a slow process when compared to the laser type rangefinder. Also, laser type rangefinders are more accurate than the GPS types. And there are some more benefits to the laser types. That is why many people use laser type rangefinder nowadays.

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

No worries. You do not have to choice any one 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 to use this device on the golf course. Here are the features 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 the 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 if there are 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 with measuring 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 us say you are playing golf on the golf courses, and suddenly sky has started to cry. For that, you want to leave the game, and take cover under any roof so that your rangefinder does not drink in the rain water . But if you have the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-GPS Golf Rangefinder in your hand, you do not need to leave the course during the rainfall, as this rangefinder has a rainproof construction! Your rangefinder will never malfunction in the rain!

Ease of Use

Although this laser rangefinder is easy and comfortable to use on the golf course, and can give more accuracy than the GPS golf rangefinder, you will find difficult to use if you cannot 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) even if you are measuring from behind the trees or something else. By using that you will not only get the distance of the target, but also you will know the distance of the front, center, and back of the green. That can make the difference between you and your opponents!

Rechargeable Battery

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

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

Easy to use

Many of the rangefinders on the market need to have some hardware or software work after being opened. But you do not need to do a single thing to play with the Bushnell Hybrid Laser-GPS Golf Rangefinder after unpacking. Just take this in hand from the box and enjoy!

Pre-Loaded Courses

There are 30,000 courses available for the GPS function and these are totally FREE! Another interesting thing is the membership is also free in some specific countries! That means you can have all the courses without paying a single dollar!
