Bushnell’s hybrid marries laser rangefinder and GPS, building the ultimate yardage cruncher.

Looking through the eyehole golfers can view the exact number to the pin, including front, middle and back yardages.

GPS digits can also be seen on the side of the device.

Looks

The red, black and grey colourways work nicely, and the overall aesthetic is premium. The ergonomics are spot on, both comfortable in the hand without worrying the user it may be dropped.

Performance

First up, accuracy of yardages is outstanding. Looking through the rangefinder, it is incredibly quick to come back with a number and you get the reassuring jolt to let you know you’re locked on.

Having the back and front numbers available on the side means you will always have a yardage, even if you have a blind shot which would usually obscure the rangefinder.

A GPS normally only gives you a front, middle and back number, so the rangefinder allows you get the exact digit to the pin alongside these numbers. By having all these content through the eye piece, it means you can make a decision in seconds.

The GPS offers up to four hazard distances, and auto updates via bluetooth.

The two systems draw life from different battery packs, with the GPS coming from a USB charged battery and the rangefinder using a CR2 battery.

Verdict

The most accurate rangefinder on the market, offering heaps of information. Allows you to have the front and back number along with the exact number to the pin. The GPS and rangefinder dovetail seamlessly.
