I never got the manual so cannot tell you much about the other modes except that there are a couple - one shows a little bunch of trees so I imagine that is for shooting through a screen, the other is a bull-eye but I forgot what it does, then there is the standard setting. Very impressive zippered clamshell case, very sharp optics, "Send" button is in a perfect location, easy to fire.
So far this unit has got my thumbs-up, have not had anything to complain about.
The "eyesafe" rules restrict the lasers output so we have to live with pretty wide operating abilities. The bright sun operation of the new Bushnell was impressive. I am afraid that there is only one way to find out if this unit will do the job for you - I was lasering a lot of vegetation and rocks to get an idea of distance in the mountains and the unit was excellent.
This unit is a significant improvement over my older 1000 unit. I will send some images to Dave, maybe he would be kind enough to post them.
I've had good luck with my YP1000, might be a better unit than some have gotten though but, I'm pleased with mine out to about 600 yards in any given situation, out to 1200-1400 yards at dawn or dusk on certain objects.
The Elite sounds like it works much better though.
Question - Does it retain the target quality meter at the top?
This comes in handy for me all the time. At a glance I know what objects are more than likely going to give me a reading if the meter bounces high on certain things.
I wonder now how these compare to the Leica Geovid.
