Press the power button to turn the unit on then, while looking through the monocular, press and hold the mode button for 5 seconds. You will see the unit of measure indicator switch from meters to yards. Good Luck!

What is your favorite golf rangefinder, and why?


Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinderis my favorite one. It's a fantastic range finder.
It's offers some amazing feature and specification like...
  • 6x magnification
  • Range between 5-1000 yards
  • 3-volt CR2 Battery
  • Rangefinder Accuracy 5 yds
The Bushnell Scout DX Rangefinder will help you to pick from 3 different user modes by pressing the Mode button at the left side of the unit. First is the usual mode which can be used for most purposes up to 1000 meters and works well towards the pretty reflective surface.
When turned on, the Scout 1000 Laser Rangefinder liquid crystal display (LCD) will directly display icons like the bow and rifle mode. The bow mode will provide you with true horizontal distances from 5-99yd away, depending on the angle. The rifle mode, however, will permit you to get the angle and drop/holdover of your shot to the target from 100-800yd.

What is the difference between Hunting vs Golfing Rangefinders?


If you want to buy a rangefinder then you would have a question at some point. Can you use a rangefinder for both golfing and hunting? Can you save a few bucks buying one rangefinder?
The answer is Yes, you can. You can use a laser rangefinder for both activities if you choose a smart device that has features to serve both golfing and hunting adequately. You just need to know the basic differences between golf and hunting rangefinders and some limitations.
Fast of all you have to know, what is golf rangefinder and hunting rangefinder.
Golf Rangefinder Golf rangefinders seek for the nearest flag stick for the measuring the distance in an open field.
Hunting Rangefinder
The rangefinders always are in "Distant Target Mode" by default to spot wildlife in wooden terrains. This target set automatically ignores close objects that could obstruct your view.

Here I wrote the 3 difference, you should remember that:

1. First Target And Distant Target Modes

Golfers need "First Target Mode" to detect the near objects like flag or pin in an open golf ground. Hunting rangefinders rarely good at detecting close objects. For hunting, "Distant Target Mode" is appropriate to range a target past the wood. Modern rangefinders come with toggling options between both first target and distant target modes, but they are expensive.
2.Quick And Accurate Reading
Golfing rangefinders detect the object quickly, and hunting rangefinders give the accurate reading. It is true that golf rangefinders do not need to be as precise as hunting one. Hunters want to make sure that their prey can be perfectly located.
3. Magnification Strength
You might be aware of the fact that Hunting rangefinders always have more magnification than the Golf Rangefinders. Golfers need the distance of the next hole, which could be maximum 400 yards. For the bow hunters and hunting, 400 yards rangefinders are also appropriate. In case of rifle hunting or long-distance shooting sports, you will be needed maximum 1000 to 1500 yards ranges.

Now you know what the basic differences between the golf and hunting rangefinders are. You can start choosing your suitable one.

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.

If the unit has a "mode" button, hold it down for at least 5 seconds and see if the "Y" comes up on the screen. Let me know if that helped...mtg
