The Wosport’s W600 multi-function range finder is an amazing piece of technology.  It is light weight, but durably with a firm rubberized exterior.  And, the most important part, it is accurate. Read on for the full review.

After testing it in it’s three modes; fixed distance measuring, golf flag stick distance measuring and target speed/velocity measuring I can attest it is very accurate.

Mode 1 (M1), range finding is simple to use. Turn on the unit by momentarily touching the top button nearest to you.  The unit switches on.  Next press & release the mode button on top (furthest from you) as many times as necessary until you see “M1” on left side of view finder screen.  Site on an object you want to range and press and release the top button nearest you until you see a “+” symbol in the view finder. At this point you get an instant readout in yards or meters.  The Wosport W600 does not feature measurement in feet or inches.

Mode 2 (M2) uses some interesting technology to sort out a golf flag stick from the surrounding background clutter. This feature is also pretty accurate. To use the golf flag stick mode turn on the unit by momentarily touching the top button nearest to you.  The unit switches on.  Next press & release the mode button on top (furthest from you) as many times as necessary until you see “M2” on left side of view finder screen. Looking at the flag stick through the view finder press the top button nearest to you until a “+” symbol appears on the screen.  Move the “+” symbol back and forth right and left over the flag stick.  When the unit works it is magic, it will vibrate and the distance to flag stick will appear.  The distance will be in yards or meters.  You switch to whichever measurement unit you prefer by holding down on the mode button (furthest from you) for two seconds until the units change in the view finder.  I walked off the distance that I read at different spots on the fairway and they match up pretty good.   I had trouble at more than 250 yards because the unit has to be held pretty steady to keep from missing the flag stick on the right/left passes.  Patience gets it.  A tip:  if you’re trying to measure distance to something small in front of other items the flag stick (M2) mode might work better than the fixed distance (M1) mode.

Mode 3 (M3) measures things moving toward or away from you; like cars. Turn on the unit by momentarily touching the top button nearest to you.  The unit switches on.  Next press & release the mode button on top (furthest from you ) as many times as necessary until you see “M3” on left side of view finder screen. Site on a moving object and quickly press and release the top button nearest you (a “+” should appear in center) and you see instant speed read out in kilometers per hour.   There is no MPH option.

Not much to quibble about with the units performance.  On the other hand the instruction enclosed are written in a confusing version of English. Only because of the W600s ease of use are you able to fiddle with its two operating buttons till you figure it out yourself.
