Leica Geosystems Announced the DISTO Add-In Module

Leica Geosystems announced the DISTO Add-In module. The software module for interfacing the DISTO Pro professional handheld laser measuring tool with the PocketCAD PRO 4.0 mobile CAD software package permits laser distance measurements to be fed directly into the PocketCAD software running on a Pocket PC or other mobile device. Drawing objects, such as lines, circles and polylines, can be created easily using the distance measurements imported directly from the DISTO Pro. Because the link is real-time, the DISTO’s math functions can be used to add and subtract distances with the result driving PocketCAD functions. The DISTO Pro is a handheld tool that uses precise laser beams to take distance measurements with accuracy up to ±1.5 mm (1/16 in), indoors or outdoors, at ranges up to 100 meters (330 ft).
