Question about Leica Laser Locator Binocular

Alternative to Leica Laser Locator

I am interested in buying the Leica Laser Locator to be used with a DGPS. However it seems that the Laser Locator has been discontinued by Leica. What alternatives are available that can measure distances upto at least 2000 meters? Please tell me which DGPS model would it be compatible with?

Leica locator with DGPS capabilities? Leica still manufactor advanced military systems under the Swiss brand name of Vectronix which is part of the Leica group. Are you after a laser locator or a rangefinder such as the discontinued 7x42 Geovid. The Geovid is still available but no longer has the electronic compass. The original never did connect to a DGPS PC only the Leica Vectronix Vector could. None of these models will locate a laser only use a laser to calculate distance. Current Geovids range to 1200 meters and the Vectronix 21 will range to 12 Kilometers. Unless you are a certified government customer the Vectronix 21 you will not be able to purchase. Newcon have models that allegedy exceed 2000 meters that are made in Russia and depending on the model can be had for a few thousand dollars. The Leica Geovid 8, 10 or 15 power can be had for around 2.5 thousand to 3 thousand dollars and is an excellent robust unit. It will not connect to a PC for GPS sync though.

I have a pair of Leica 10x42 BN binoculars. One side will not focus. Everything seems to be in working order, I can get the lens to move just to come into focus. Any suggestions?

It sounds like the diopter may be way out of focus. You can fix it yourself if this is the case. Try to disengage it and rotate the wheel 360 degrees. If you're not certain about the procedure, give me a call and I can walk you through it.

The strap fixing on one side has come adrift from the body of the binoculars

This needs to be returned to leica for repair. That lug is integral with the body and that is the only solution. The place that you bought them from should be able to give you further information on the return for warranty repair.
