I compete in 3d archery so I bought a new rangefinder 2 days ago and it reads 19.2 yards at exactly 20 yards is there a way to adjust it to read properly?


Page 5 of the manual states: RANGING ACCURACY The ranging accuracy of the Scout™1000 is plus or minus one yard / meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 650 yards / 594 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards / 914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. White is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit's maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit's maximum range.

The difference you are experiencing (20-19.2=.8 yards) is within the device ranging accuracy of 1 yard, and is in fact an error of only 4%. That is pretty accurate

Good luck with your device.

V3 change meters to yards


MODE and UNIT OF MEASURE OPTIONS

The TOUR V3 can be used to measure distances in yards or meters. The unit of measure indicators are located in the lower
right portion of the LCD. To select between yards and meters, press and hold the POWER/FIRE button. The display will
begin to cycle through the setup options: Yards w/JOLT, Yards, Meters w/JOLT, Meters (for details on the JOLT feature,
see "About JOLT"). When the units and JOLT mode you want to use are displayed, release the POWER/FIRE button to
select it. If you are changing from yards to meters, a change in unit of measure will be indicated by the illumination of the
M for meter indicator while the Y for Yard indicator is turned off. If you are changing from meters to yards, the opposite
will occur. The TOUR V3 will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on.

Change from meters to yards on bushnell chuck adams rangefinder


First, remove the battery then replace it to reset the unit, then ...
Taken word for word from the manual: While looking through the eyepiece, press and hold the POWER button down for approx. 5 seconds. During this time all liquid crystal segments and icons will be displayed. As you continue to depress(hold down) the power button, the display will toggle back and forth between Yards and Meters. Once the unit of measure desired is displayed, simply release the power button. The device will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on.

Tour v 2 , it doesnt show the actual yardage and I didn't try i


Make sure the battery is good. (Go to a radioshack and have them measure the voltage). It should be 3.1 to 3.2 volts. The reflectivity of objects being measured is a factor. Lighter colors reflect better than darker colors. Larger objects reflect better than small ones. License plates, highway signs are very reflective. You should be able to hit one of those from more than 700 yards away. Make sure the Pinseeker mode is on and try.....(touch the mode button and the flag comes up on the screen) Don't hold the mode button down for more than 5 sec or you will switch the unit to meters instead of yards.

On most of the bushnell units you just hold down the MODE button for about 5 seconds and the unit should switch from yards to meters....or vice versa

you have it on the meters setting not the yards setting. hold the scan button down for three seconds or longer and it will revert to the other form. a meter is nearly 10% longer than a yard.
