What does it mean when I attempt a measurement but the unit shows a number on the display versus my measured value?
This is a message code. The numbers are displayed if a successful measurement could not be performed. The user himself can correct the measuring situation to achieve a measurement. Below you can find a table showing corrective actions:


No. Cause Correction
204 Calculation error Perform measurement again.
240 Data transfer error Repeat procedure.
252 Temperature too high Let device cool down.
253 Temperature too low Warm device up.
254 Battery voltage too low for measurements Change batteries.
255 Received signal too weak, measuring time too long

Change target surface (e.g. white paper).

256 Received signal too high Change target surface (e.g. white paper).
257 Too much background light Shadow target area.
258 Measurement outside of measuring range Correct range.
260 Laser beam interrupted Repeat measurement.


What does ISO 16331-1 standard mean?
When products and services meet our expectations, we tend to take this for granted and be unaware of the role of standards. However, when standards are absent, we soon notice. We care when products turn out to be of poor quality or are unreliable or dangerous. An ISO Standard ensures consistent quality and reliability for a product. 
The range and accuracy of laser distance meters depend greatly on lighting conditions and the reflective properties of the target object. For Leica Geosystems it is important that the performance of the device is maintained not only in the test laboratory but even more so on everyday site tasks. Therefore we have worked with external experts to develop a global standard to test and specify laser distance meters and allow comparisons between devices of different manufacturers. Instruments tested in accordance with ISO 16331-1 achieve their promises. Further information can be found here on our website.

What Bluetooth® technology is integrated in the Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110)? 
The Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) has Bluetooth® SMART. The devices is working with smartphones or tablets with Bluetooth® 4.0, or are “Smart Ready”. It is also required that the operating system supports this Bluetooth® standard which is the case for iOS devices, Android devices 4.3 or higher, and Windows 8.0 or higher.

Can I send measuring data from a Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) to iOS mobile devices? 
Yes, the Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) can communicate with iOS mobile devices. It’s possible to send measuring data to an iPhone (iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c), iPad3, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPod touch (Gen. 5). (--> Bluetooth® 4.0)

Can I send measuring data from a Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) to Android devices? 
Yes, the Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) can communicate also with Android devices, with operating system 4.3 or higher, and which have integrated Bluetooth 4.0. Used apps should support the corresponding Bluetooth® standard (e.g. Leica DISTO™ sketch).

Can I send measuring data from a Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) to a Windows computer? 
It is possible to send data to computers running with Windows 8.1 by using the free software DISTO transfer. This free software you can download from our DISTO webpage. Windows 7 and older Windows operating systems do not support Bluetooth 4.0 and therefore do not support data transfer from the Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110).

Can I send measuring data from a Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) to Windows mobile, Windows RT or a Blackberry device? 
No, this is not possible.

Does the Leica DISTO™ E7100i (D110) offer apps? 
Yes. We offer the Leica DISTO™ sketch app. The app is available free of charge for iOS devices on iTunes, and for Android devices on Google play.
