The GLM 50 C really measures up and is incredibly easy to use. Lightweight and compact with a range of 50m, it fulfils the needs of most professionals. The colour display is clear and easy to read. The keys give good positive feedback and there is a beep, which you can select on or off. The GLM 50 C automatically saves your last 30 measurements. The unit defaults to measuring from the rear of the device although you can change this to the front or from the central tripod socket. The GLM 50 C can calculate area and volume. As an electronic tape measure, the display scrolls as you move towards or away from a chosen point. For example, when finding an exact distance from a wall. There is a very accurate spirit level function, which increases accuracy when taking a horizontal or vertical measurement. It beeps when level if required. The spirit level also allows height measurement of an object from a fixed point on the ground using automatic trigonometry.
The GLM 50 C offers fast and efficient data transfer via Bluetooth and micro USB. The Bluetooth function again adds even more functionality. It connects the device to a computer, laptop, tablet or phone. With the Bosch apps, which are free on both devices, you can import measurement data straight into the app store results, draw floor plans or overlay photographs with highly accurate measurements.
It is splash proof with protection class IP54 and comes with a protective case. The unit itself is quite compact measuring only 106 x 45 x 24mm deep.
