Hold the Laser Rangefinder body steady with both hands to prevent hand movement.
When targeting a distant small object like a flagstick, hand movement may influence the result. It is best to hold the COOLSHOT body firmly with both hands.
Position the flag at the centre of the target mark in the viewfinder.
To measure the distance to the flagstick successfully, target the flag, which is larger than the stick. Position the flag on the centre of the target mark () in the viewfinder. Note that when your target is off-centre from the target mark, the distance to the object cannot be measured.
Keep targeting the flagstick with continuous measurement.
Continuous measurement function minimises the influence of hand shake or movement. During measurement, the measured distance is displayed consecutively. To obtain distance to the flagstick, keep targeting the flag on the centre of the target mark.
