For the model you have (20-1916) I would use the flag. Larger target and soon to be reflective. When on the green I would aim at the hole. Let me know if this helps

I have the Bushnell yardage pro 450. It has a new battery and will not show yardage or it sometimes flutters the number but you can not read it. Sometimes it will show partial numbers!

I went to another website and read the reviews of other owners of Bushnell products, this is a common problem from Bushnell products. The fix is to buy another or try to get them to replace it, they should recall everyone of them and give refunds or new rangefinders. I found all this out for free, thank you very much!!!

Bushnell Elite 1500 Rangefinder has lost focus

There is a ring below the eyepiece that is the focus......
Dont drop it and keep away from vibration. This will keep it in alignment. You will notice that if its been dropped it won't lock in on targets greater than 150 yards. A lot of players put the rangefinder in the compartment in the golf cart and the unit bounces around a lot. This practice just DECREASES the effective range. Alignment will be needed ($$)
