The 6x22 GX-4i Laser Rangefinder from Leupold combines a Class 1 eye-safe IR laser with a useful multicoated monocular to create an effective and waterproof tool for any golf outing. The GX-4i has multiple proprietary systems to improve your game and accurately get you to the pin. Tools such as the Digitally eNhanced Accuracy (DNA) engine, PinHunter, Prism Lock and Fog Mode all help to ensure that you sight the correct target and get an accurate range. The GX-4i comes with Leupold's True Golf Range (TGR) and Club Selector systems. TGR uses the range from DNA and a built-in inclinometer. You input the temperature and altitude. TGR will adjust the range taking the distance and shot angle into account and display a distance that you should shoot for. Club Selector takes the TGR information, and your striking strength and recommends appropriate clubs.
The quick-set menu provides fast and easy one-handed access to all of the GX-4i features and options. Select one of three reticle patterns that fit your references or the situation. A spot mode lets you range to a stationary target, and the continuous-scan mode allows you to track moving targets. Choose to have distances displayed in yards or meters. The battery status indicator continuously shows the available power, while an auto power-off feature conserves it.
The bright yellow Smart Key locking face plate allows the inclinometer, TRG and Club Selector to be used only when attached; otherwise these features will be disabled. This is useful if the course, or people you are playing with, prohibit their use. The bright yellow color makes it instantly known if it's being used or not.
An Organic LED provides clear and bright images by reflecting the display information into the optical path. Projecting the information eliminates LCD display films often used in rangefinders that can interfere with light transmission, which reduces image brightness. When using the GX-4i as a traditional monocular, the OLED will not affect the views when not in use, unlike traditional display films.
