Laser Tape Measure

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the bosch laser tape measure with the chief architect? I am curious about which laser tape will integrate smoothest with the chief architect X11 software. Thanks in advance Doug Boitz.

I have used a GLM 80 & GLM 100, both Bosch products, seamlessly with CA Room Planner.  However, just read an article that says Chief discontinued Room Planner last year.

      Stumbled across this looking for a different article on the Chief Architect site and thought it could help people here.

      I'm not finding instructions on how to interface with the Bosch, or ANY, laser measuring device. Probably right in front of my nose, but not seeing it. Anyone know where to look??
      Thanks!

      I don't want to open a Pandora's Box and the preference war between Apple vs. everyone else. However, my cell phone is in the process of dying and I have to replace it. In trying to think ahead, I am considering both the iPhone 6s Plus (5.5" screen) and the Galaxy S6 (5.7" screen).
       
      My primary concern is the practical use of Room Planner on a cell phone and interfacing with a Bluetooth laser, especially the E7100i that I just recently bought for this purpose. Will they communicate effectively?
       
      Second question is, will Room Planner functionally work on a cell phone for as-builts with its smaller screen? Is it a waste of time and should I go the tablet route (more money of course since I still have to upgrade my cell phone)?
       
      Any input would be appreciated. I posted this on the Room Planner forum also.
       
      Thanks, Mike

      Doing much more remodeling work for one of my builders than I ever have for some reason. I find I could really use a good laser tape measure. I have an old ultrasonic device, but it is outdated and not very accurate - useless really. I realize trying to get a "best" is probably like which is better: Ford, Chevy, Chrysler, BMW (maybe not!). That said, what are some of you remodeling guys using that works for you? Primary concerns are accuracy, backlit display, functional in bright sun if possible. Price range: under $200 bucks if possible.
