Measuring distance with a laser disto outside in the sunlight can be challenging. I just purchased a new disto that is supposed to be accurate up to 600ft. Attempting measurements from a mere 17m was super challenging, though. I could only get it to work by attaching a shiny plate to the speaker face.
This is fine for speakers that I can reach, but what about arrays high up in the air? Is there a better strategy to measure distance in the sun? Do I need to upgrade to some kind of range finder?
