The Bushnell Tour V2 is the newest addition to an award winning line of golf laser rangefinders specifically made for golfers. Tour V2 features PinSeeker™ technology, allowing the golfer to easily and quickly “zero” in on the flag without acquiring background targets. The Tour V2 is the most compact laser rangefinder on the market, weighing a mere 6.6 ounces and made to fit into the palm of your hand. Tour V2 also features and adjustable eyepiece, 5X magnification, and is capable of providing distance from 5 to 1000 yards with incredible one yard accuracy! Like other Bushnell laser rangefinders, the Tour V2 is not dependent upon reflectors, and will provide distance to trees, bunkers, and virtually any object on the course, to any golf course in the world.
HOW THE BUSHNELL DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY WORKS
The TOUR V2 WITH PINSEEKER emits invisible, eye safe, infrared energy pulses. The TOUR V2 WITH
PINSEEKER’s Advanced Digital microprocessor and ASIC chip (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit)
results in instantaneous and accurate readings every time. Sophisticated digital technology instantaneously calculates distances by measuring the time it takes for each pulse to travel from the rangefinder, to the target, and back.
The ranging accuracy of the TOUR V2 is plus or minus one yard/meter under most circumstances. The
maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 700 yards/640 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards/914 meters.
Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. Red is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect
the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit’s maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit’s maximum range.
INSERTING THE BATTERY
Remove the battery cap by lifting the battery door tab and then rotating counter clockwise. Insert a CR-2 3-volt lithium battery into the compartment positive end first, then replace the battery cap. NOTE: It is recommended that the battery be replaced at least once every 12 months. Low Battery Indicator: If the is displayed within the in-view readout, this means “low battery” or battery charge is getting low and the 3-volt lithium battery should be replaced.
ADJUSTING THE EYEPIECE
Your TOUR V2 is constructed with an adjustable eyepiece (+/- 2 Diopter Adjustment) that allows one
to focus the LCD display relative to the image. Simply rotate the eyepiece until the reticle and object
distanced to are in focus to your eye.
While looking through the 5x eyepiece, depress the power button once to activate the in-view Liquid
Crystal Display (LCD). Place the aiming circle (located in the center of the field of view) upon a target
at least 5 yards away, depress and hold the power button down until the range reading is displayed
near the bottom of the in-view display. Crosshairs surrounding the aiming circle indicate that the laser is
being transmitted. Once a range has been acquired, you can release the power button. The crosshairs
surrounding the aiming circle will disappear once the power button has been released (i.e. the laser is no longer being transmitted). Note: Once activated, the LCD will remain active and display the last distance measurement for 30 seconds. You can depress the power button again at any time to distance to a new target. As with any laser device, it is not recommended to directly view the emissions for long periods of time with magnified lenses. The maximum time the laser is transmitted (fired) is 10 seconds. To re-fire, press the button down again.
LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY (LCD) INDICATORS
Your Bushnell TOUR V2 WITH PINSEEKER’s LCD incorporates illuminated indicators that advise the user unit of measure, when the laser is actively firing, when a target has been acquired, and targeting modes.
UNIT OF MEASURE OPTIONS
The TOUR V2 can be used to measure distances in yards or meters. The unit of measure indicators are
located in the lower right portion of the LCD. To select between yards and meters, quickly press and
release the POWER button to turn on the unit (on top of the unit), look through the eyepiece, depress
the “MODE” button (left side of the eyepiece) and hold it down for approximately 5 seconds. If you are
changing from yards to meters, a change in unit of measure will be indicated by the illumination of the M for meter indicator while the Y for Yard indicator is turned off. If you are changing from meters to yards, the opposite will occur. The TOUR V2 will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on
Crosshairs surrounding the aiming circle indicate that the laser is being transmitted. Once a range has
been acquired, you can release the power button. The crosshairs surrounding the circle will disappear
once the power button has been released (i.e. the laser is no longer being transmitted).
SELECTIVE TARGETING™ MODES
The TOUR V2 WITH PINSEEKER was especially designed with golfers in mind. The selective targeting
modes allow you to adjust the performance parameters of the unit to suit your specific situation and
environment. To move from one mode to another, press the POWER button once to turn on the unit. While looking through the eyepiece, press the MODE button and quickly release.
PinSeeker - Ever have trouble getting distance to the flag? This advanced mode allows
easy acquisition of the flag without inadvertently getting distances to background targets (i.e. trees) that have stronger signal strength.
Once in this mode, press the POWER button to turn the unit on. Next, align the aiming circle reticle onto
the flag that you want distance to. Next, press and hold the POWER button and move the laser slowly
over the flag or desired object until a circle surrounds the flag indicator. If the laser beam recognized
more than one object (i.e. flag and background trees), distance of the flag will be displayed and a circle
will surround the PinSeeker indicator informing the user that distance to the flag (i.e. closer object) is
being displayed in the LCD. There may be times when only the laser beam only sees one object in its path. In this case, the distance will be displayed, but because more than one object was not acquired, a circle will not surround the flag indicator.
TIP: While pressing the POWER button, you can move the device slowly from object to object and intentionally force the laser to hit multiple objects to ensure that you are only displaying the closest of the objects recognized by the laser. Once the device has shut off, the unit will always default back to the last mode used.
Standard with Automatic SCAN: This setting allows most targets to be distanced up to 1000 yards.
Used for moderately reflective targets that are typical of most distancing situations. The minimum distance in the standard mode is 5 yards. To use the Automatic SCAN feature, simply hold down on the POWER button for approximately 3 seconds and SCAN the rangefinder from object to object while leaving the POWER button depressed. Automatic SCAN will allow the range and display to be continuously updated very rapidly as multiple objects are targeted.
Molded into the bottom of your TOUR V2 is a threaded tripod mount that will allow you to attach a tripod
for a more stable operation during long periods of use.
