Golf - How long was that drive?
Shooting - how far out to set your targets?


Uses do NOT include:
How long is my car?
How long is my bedroom?

Press the big button.
Walk towards point 2.
Read results.


Frequently asked questions
Why is the maximum error so large
Because there is some error at point 1 and some error at point 2.

Works fine. Just wanted to say, by God there are a lot of thick-skulled morons giving you one-star reviews lol. I don't know why you even bother answering them.

Like they said, bad for short distances Due to GPS limitations not very accurate. If you want to ballpark long distances it's great. But the app said max error 168 feet for me. Not the apps fault though.
