I purchased this model used last year. Great buy. Great device.
Does this only reckognize hole flags? Could you range a round metal target if you wanted, or a deer or something?
I’m sorry; my notifications were turned off so I missed this.
I am sure you could range other objects but I researched how these laser rangefinder worked not too long ago. It is fascinating that the detection actual occurs in the logic, not the light sensors. The light sensors are a grid that capture light intensity. It is up to he computer logic to detect patterns. For golf, they are designed to detect long objects such as the flag. Hunting rangefinders would be designed to detect larger objects, like animals.
I think it would work, but a rangefinder designed for a specific purpose would be better.
