OWNER’S MANUAL
PREPARATION
INSTALLING BATTERIES
Your measurer requires 9V battery (not supplied) for power. For the best
performance and life, we recommend alkaline battery.
Follow these steps to install a battery.
1. Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow to remove it.
2. Snap the battery in the compartment, as indicated by the polarity symbols (+
and - ) marked inside.
3. Replace the cover.
When LOW BATT appears or the measurer stops operating properly, replace the
battery.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the measurer for a month or more, remove the
battery. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
STABILIZING THE MEASURER
Your measurer is sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. Before you
use the measurer, wait about 15~30 minutes for it to stabilize to the current
room’s temperature.
OPERATION
TURNING THE MEASURER ON/OFF
To turn on the measurer, press MEASURE. The measurer turns itself off if no key
is pressed within about 4 minutes or press MEASURE for 3 seconds to turn it off.
TAKING A MEASUREMENT
1. Press MEASURE to turn on the unit. The measurer beeps then the distance
between the measurer and the point you measured appears.
2. Hold the bottom of the measurer flat against a wall, about halfway between the
floor and ceiling. Be sure there is a clear path to the point you want to measure
and that your head or hands do not block the front of the measurer.
3. Repeatedly press FEET/METER until FEET appears (to measure in feet ) or
until METER appears (to measure in meter).
Notes:
1

The measurement appears for about 4 minutes (or longer if you press
another key).

ERROR might appear if you try to measure a distance shorter than the set
range of 2 feet (0.61m) or longer than 60 feet (18.288 meters).
Measuring Tips

Some types of curtains and blinds can absorb sound waves, causing
measurements to be inaccurate. If you are measuring distances in a room
with curtains, open the curtains before measuring the distance to a window
behind them. Also, be sure that the window is closed.

If there is not a clear path between the points where you are measuring, you
might receive a false reading from sound waves bouncing off objects such
as chairs, tables and objects with uneven surfaces. If you are not sure if a
measurement is correct, move slightly to one side then measure the
distance again.

If the surface of a wall you are measuring is not solid and flat, of if you are
measuring in a narrow corridor, you might receive a false reading. If this
happens, use a solid surface to measure or move to the center of the
corridor.

To measure a distance longer than 60 feet (18.288meters), select a point in
the middle of the room (for example), measure from the center of the room
toward each side, then add the two measurements.
SAVING A MEASUREMENT
1. Follow the steps under “Taking a Measurement” to measure a dimension.
2. Press STORE then a memory key (M1,M2 or M3). M and the number of the
memory location you chose (1,2 or 3) appear and the measurer stores the
reading in that memory location.
3. If necessary, repeat steps 1 and 2 to save up to three measurements.
2
4. To display a measurement stored in a memory location, press that memory key
(M1,M2 or M3). The measurement stored in that memory location appears.
To delete a measurement stored in a memory location, simply store a new one in
its place.
To clear all stored measurements, hold down ALL MEMORY CLEAR for about 3
seconds. The measurer beeps and M and the number of the memory location you
chose (1,2 or 3) disappears.
Note: Data of AREA or VOLUME can not be saved.
CALCULATING VOLUME
To find the volume of a room, measure the height, width and the length of the
room and store each measurement in a different memory location (see “Saving a
Measurement”). Then press VOLUME, the volume calculation result appear.
CALCULATING AREA
Follow these steps to find the area of any two stored measurements.
1. Measure the width and length of a room and store the measurements in M1
and M2 (see “Saving a Measurement”).
Press AREA, M1, and M2, the area calculation appear.
ADDING/SUBTRACTING STORED MEASUREMENTS
1. Measure any two dimensions of a room and store the measurements in
memory locations 1 and 2 (see “Saving a Measurement”)
2. Press ALL MEMORY CLEAR.
3. Press M1, +, M2, then + to add the measurements, or M1, -, M2, then - to
subtract them. The value of the calculation appears.
4. To clear the display and do another measurement, press ALL MEMORY
CLEAR.
USING LASER
To have a laser pointer, press LASER.
The laser pointer disappears automatically after about five seconds.
(This feature is only for GC3007).
USING Backlight
You can light up the display screen with the “LIGHT” key for easy viewing, even in
a dimly lit area ( This function is only for GC3007A).
