Leica DISTO™ D2
How to use the intelligent endpiece This video will show you how to measure using
our DISTO D2 endpiece in different measuring situations. By default, distance is measured
from the rear of the device to the laser dot. This is shown on the device symbol on the display. When you flip up the endpiece, creating a 90, the orientation of the endpiece is automatically detected
and the zeropoint is adjusted accordingly. You can hook it onto a corner so that you
know you are getting an accurate measurement straight from the back of the unit. The last
position for the multifunctional endpiece is fully extended. This is set by moving the
endpiece in the direction of the arrows. In this orientation distance is measured from
the far end of the endpiece. This helps when you have to measure from a very narrow profile,
notches, corners or out of a window structure. You can also see the reference on the device
symbol. This is ideal when you´re trying to determine a diagonal. To do this use Min/Max
mode. Just hold down the ON/DIST- button for 2 seconds. Put the endpiece into the corner.
Wait for the beep twice. Sweep the corner. And then press again to stop measuring. The
largest measurement at the top is the measurement of your diagonal. The other way to adjust
the measuring reference is to use the reference-key. Press it once to take the next measurement
from the front of the device. This can be useful if you have a very short distance to
measure. Hold down the reference-key for 2 sec and referencing from front is set permanently. Press the reference key again to permanently switch back to the default, measuring from rear, setting. See you in the next How-to D2 video about functions.

  1. In daylight it is difficult to see the laser reflection form normal surfaces. If I use a retroreflective surface i.e. one that reflects back only to the source of the light or thereabouts, then the Disto D2 is over loaded and does not measure the distance.
    Is there some way of making its receiver less sensitive in these circumstances?

  2. The previous version had raised buttons …..far better than the new ones when you are trying to keep the dot steady and not fumbling for the right button to press while looking up. Im thinking of changing to another make simply due to this ….whos idea was it? Theyve obviously never used one in the real world situation.
