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.
