If you read Laser Distance Measurer (LDM) reviews, you often see a comment like, “If only the laser was easier to see outside or in sunlight" or "What good is a 600' range when you can't see the dot?"

Now I'll get into capabilities that dramatically improve your measuring efficiency. This next group is “Nice-to-Have”, but depending on how you work and what you do, “Nice-to-Have” might be a "Must Have".
