Stopped measuring in inches
I don't know what happened, but the unit I purchased less than a year ago has suddenly decided to not allow me to switch the display from feet to inches. No matter what I try. Pretty frustrated.

Great tool
The device itself is excellent, with a clean interface and simple operation. Docking one star because of the companion app, 'Measuring master', which is free but a little clunky. There are a number of small usability changes that would result in an vast improvement in operation and workflow. (Happy to share full details if the app is still undergoing development!

Happy with my purchase
I am happy with my purchase of the GLM 50CX its easy to use and I am still learning how to use all the features of the MeasureOn app that I think will be a great help with some of the projects that I have in mind.

Hoping for more!
So far, I’ve not been able to get the GLM to Bluetooth to my IPad. While other items will Bluetooth, the GLM will not. I will keep trying and rate at another time.

Enjoying this new tool
This tool has all the tools you could want for figuring jobs or getting tough measurements by yourself. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you can't make it read just 1/16ths. It reads down to the 32nd. It's nice to be that accurate at times. But most framing work switching to 1/16ths would be much nicer on the brain calling out measurements to the cut guy. But still a great tool to keep in the toolbelts. You can find your roof angles in a second. And level 4 directions at a time. Like a transit bubble level is the best way to describe the leveling action. And the layout function is pretty sweet too.

No app for android!
So the whole reason I bought this was because of the Bluetooth connectivity and what it could do. Come to find out weeks later that the measure on app isn't on Google Play Store anymore. They deleted the app!

So far so good
I haven't used all of the features yet, but based on the ease of use with the MeasureOn app, I would be very pleased if all it did was straight line measurements and record them in the app. Looking forward to all the other measurement applications I am sure to run into.

Could be a game changer if........
Purchased the tool last week and love everything about it except one thing. A common tape measure measures to a 16th, this tool measure to a 32nd with no option to change it. This may sound like a small issue but the purpose of the tool is to increase the speed of measuring accurately and most likely use the measurement with a tape measure to measure and cut lumber. Having to think about 32nds when using a 1/16 graduated tape measure is a pain, slows down what could be a fast measurement,and increases the likelihood of errors. An option to measure in 16ths would be an improvement. I find myself trying to manipulate the tool to get a measurement that is not in 32nds
