I've been using the subject laser rangefinder for some months now.  It is a truly worthy piece of gear.  I've been using both the 200 and 360 models.  Major difference between the two is effective range and the 360 allows azimuth reading... it has an electronic compass built in. Both models have a tilt sensor. They are easy and straightforward to use, with some complex features, and VERY accurate.  Possibly the best laser rangefinder, outside of some military units, I've ever used.  TruPulse is mid to high dollar (the 360 is advertised as low cost, but anything in the $1700.00 range is not low cost to me), but is worth it.  The monocular uses HD-type glass and is very clear and clean. 

Due to some of the applications I have, I've spent some time performing the various calibrations and comparing against measured data.  The systems measure in feet, yards and meters and accuracy is plus or minus 1ft or 30cm and it is dead on (for "hard" targets... advertised at 1 yard for low resolution targets like game animals... fairly standard).  One can measure: Horizontal Distance, Slope Distance, Vertical Distance, Height, Inclination, and Missing Line and the 360 model allows measurement of Azimuth.  Height can be measured with a two point or three point solution.

Both models I've tested/used have Bluetooth and can be integrated to GPS and/or Geographic Information System (GIS).  There are features that most will never use... however, the more inquisitive will check it out just for the fun of it and the pure joy of knowledge for its own sake. 

Targeting can be in Standard Mode, Filter Mode (for heavy clutter... really great), Farthest Mode for maximum performance at long ranges, Closest Mode for guess what, and Continuous Mode for constant ranging while swinging through an arc.  Measurements can be made without reflectors out to a little over 1000 yards (actually 1000m) with great accuracy. With reflectors, out to 1.25 miles.

Calibrations are more complex than on most LRFs I've used, but are straightforward.  Once performed properly, the TruPulse is truly a fine scientific instrument. 

I'm getting one... I've always been satisfied with the Bushnell's LRFs... until now.  Yes, it is considerably more expensive than the Bushnell, but it is a lot more system.  I've not been as impressed with any of the commercial LRF's I've had my hands on, and that's most of them.  This is an engineering tool that is applicable to hunting and shooting.  It is tough (survived some of the people I work with and the environments we "play" in with no problems), compact, reliable and just a pleasure to use.  The optics is superior. 

If you can't tell, I love this device.  Its complexity melded with simple operations is a part of its beauty and its capabilities can challenge and enhance the skills of accomplished cartography buffs.  I will take it to a battlefield any day. 

A+ for technology well done.

This is quite funny to find someone else with the same thoughts so soon, even though they predate mine.
I just sent the evaluation Trupulse 200 B unit back after giving it a brief review.
I'm also very impressed and haven't discovered anything with similar abilities.
I'm going to get one!
For your reading pleasure, should you be so inclined:

That is a GREAT review.  I had an opportunity to actually use two variants of the TruPulse… I love it… I will have one soon.
