CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PURCHASE OF THE BUSHNELL TOUR V2 WITH
PINSEEKER TECHNOLOGY. The TOUR V2 is a precision Laser Rangefinding optical instrument designed to provide many years of enjoyment. This booklet will help you achieve optimum performance by explaining its adjustments and features as well as how to care for this precise laser rangefinding optical instrument. To ensure optimal performance and longevity, please read these instructions before using your TOUR V2.
Your Tour V2 is Bushnells 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 OUR DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY WORKS
The TOUR V2 WITH PINSEEKER emits invisible, eye safe, infrared energy pulses. The TOUR V2 WITH
PINSEEKERs 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 will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the units maximum range.
IINSERTING 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. is displayed within the in-view readout, this means low battery or
Low Battery Indicator: If the 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 onc
