As with previous models, such as the DLR165 and the GLR225, Bosch’s new laser distance measures offer users the flexibility of measuring from one of four distinct points – from the front or back of the unit, from the integrated tripod mount or from the multi-functional extension pin, perfect for measurements from corners or inside channels.
New to the GLR500 and the GLR825 is the capability of delivering 11 distinct types of measurements, versus seven modes on the GLR225 – length, area, volume, minimum/maximum, continuous, indirect length , double indirect, combined indirect, stake out, trapezoid, multi-surface area and timed measurement.
To help users keep track of all of those measurements, both tools have enough built-in memory to store up to 30 individual measurements and results.

A glass lens and ceramic optics carrier are utilized for maximum durability. And both units, including their battery compartments, are IP54 protected against dust and water. Bosch’s GLR500 and GLR825 also feature rubber-padded surfaces to ensure a secure grip and to protect the units from damage due to drops.
