You from greater Spartenburg? I've got a ton of family down there...
Anyway, you bring up a good point.
My issues with the Leica was that it would range tree lines out to 1200 yards (I used a TVS-5 Gen 3 scope to watch the beam strikes at night...) Interestingly, this was when it was completely dark.
I then took I to the range and there are light/blue-gray high tension towers at 450 and 800 yards... and it would range the 450 unit, but not the 800 unit. That was went I knew it had to go back.
A little more reseach, and I found out they have problems... and that the only really rock solid unit is the Swarovski.
So I picked up that unit and the Bushnell 1600 Elite ARC...
I never thought to disable the extra functionality on the Leica.
I have noticed that while none of the manuals for any of the LRFs I've been playing with are outstanding technical and detailed, the Bushnell one specifically indicates limitations that you need to be aware of. Such as atmospheric issues, object color, daytime brightness, etc.
I think that both the Lieca and the Bushnell indicate issues where the ballastic programs are only usable to specific distances. (...they don't work past so many yards.)
Who knows what the software would report if turned on? You should do so and let us know if something turns up...
Being of German decent, I was a little put out when a Chinese device worked generally better than two germanic units.
