Summary: Any company that advertises that the battery life in their product at one year and the battery runs down in one month deserves less than a 4 or 5 star review. From their manual, I quote, "It is recommended that the battery be replaced at least once every 12 months.
Summary: Purchased the unit a year ago and all was well (2011). The unit still works well, but has developed a brown spot in the viewfinder. A call to the customer service folks reveals that they know about the issue, but say it is a heat issue and not covered by warranty.
Summary: I got a new V2 in late June and have replaced the battery TWICE (late October). When I called Bushnell, a rep. told me that if you play 4 rounds a week, expect the battery to last 6-8 weeks. Their website claims 5000 hits...and to replace the battery every year whether or not it is needed.
Summary: I bought the Bushnell Tour V2 and loved it until I began dealing with Bushnell's Customer Service Department. The unit began giving me incorrect yardages so I contacted Customer Service which Bushnell touted as "world class.
Summary: the infomercial makes it look like a breeze to use, but it is not. to begin with, a flag that is far away from you looks small in the eyepiece. if the wind is blowing, it is even harder to get it in the little circle for a measurement.
Summary: I love the unit but I need to send it back. I went through 2 batteries in two months and used it for 12 rounds and the battery died twice. Something is draining the batteries. Otherwise the unit is great. Might have got a bad one.
Summary: I've had this bushnell Tour v2 for 1 1/2 years. Requires CR2 battery which has never had a very good battery life. I had to change about every 6 weeks and now I have to change ever 7 days - play 3 times a week. My last bushnell had a 9 volt which lasted a very, very long time.
Summary: The Bushnell Tour V2 is a good and well made product, it can measure distances very precise but the problem is that you must hold this laser device very still to get good results. This seem to be very difficult when you are out on the course. Every movement results in a different outcome.
Summary: Nachdem ich den Bushnell V2 Tour bei vielen Freunden in Aktion gesehen habe und den Range Finder auch mehrfach selbst ausprobieren konnte, entschied ich mich, ebenfalls ein Exemplar zu erwerben.
