The Leica DISTO S910 is designed around "smart" functions that combine the output from several sensors to produce a result that would otherwise be difficult to get. Much of that technology comes from the surveying equipment that Leica Geosystems is famous for (among surveyors, anyway), but in the DISTO it is used to help people who aren't surveyors achieve survey-level accuracy.

Discover more about the DISTO D3a BT's predecessor.

How accurate is the tilt sensor in the Leica DISTO™ D3a?
The accuracy of the inclination sensor in the device is ± 0.3° to the laser beam respectively ± 0.3°  to the housing of the device.

How can I check if the tilt sensor of my device is still within the described specifications (± 0.3°)?
The tilt sensor has to be switched on. On an absolute flat surface the first measurement has to be made. (please note angle a). Afterwards the device has to be turned around 180° and the second measurement has to be made. (please note angle b). 
Now angle a and angle b are added up and divided by 2. If this value falls within  ± 0.3° the tilt sensor of the device is within the described specification.
