Bushnell Pro XE FAQs

I see debris in the lens. What do I do?

The issue you described sounds like your device may have some solar burns. Over time, the device can develop small dots due to sun exposure. The dots are cosmetic and should not affect the actual performance of the device.

My laser rangefinder seems to be off by 10 yards ...

The LRF can be used to measure distance in yards or meters. The unit measure indicators are located in the lower right portion of the LCD. To select between yards and meters on your Pro XE: 

To select between yards and meters, press and hold the Mode button which is next to the Power button. Press the Power/Fire button to confirm your units preference and exit the Settings menu. The Pro Xe will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on.

Why is the display is out of focus?

Power the unit on by pressing the Power/Fire button once. Rotate the eyepiece in either direction until the display icons and numbers are in focus.

When do I replace the battery?

Replace the battery when the unit does not turn on, display does not illuminate, or the display goes blank when attempting to power the laser. Use a good quality 3-volt lithium battery (CR2). Insert into the compartment with the negative (flat) end first (positive end facing out towards the battery cover). We recommend replacing the battery at least once every six months.

Is it safe to clean my laser rangefinder?

Yes, follow these steps for proper cleaning:

1. Blow away any excessive dust or debris on exterior (or use a soft brush).

2. To remove dirt or fingerprints, clean with the supplied microfiber cloth rubbing in a circular motion. Use of a coarse cloth or unnecessary rubbing may scratch the lens surface and eventually cause permanent damage. The included washable microfiber cleaning cloth is ideal for the routine cleaning of your optics. Simply breathe lightly on the lens to provide a slight amount of moisture, then gently rub the lens with the microfiber cloth.

3. For a more thorough cleaning, photographic lens tissue and photographic-type lens cleaning fluid or isopropyl alcohol may be used. Always apply fluid to the cleaning cloth— never directly on the lens.

Can I buy replacement parts for my rangefinder?

Yes, select replacement parts such as battery doors and eye cups can be found here:

CR2 batteries for our rangefinders cannot be purchased on our site, but can easily be found at third-party retailers that have a wide selection of common batteries.

If you do not see the part that you're seeking, please reach out to Bushnell by filling out the form on their Contact Us page.

How do I register my Bushnell Golf device?

Register your Bushnell Golf device online via Bushnell's Product Registration page or by downloading the Bushnell Golf Mobile app and adding your GPS or laser rangefinder within "See All" > "My Devices" within the home screen of the app.

Android and Apple iOS compatible versions of the new app can be downloaded at the Google Play and Apple App stores.
