Title: METHOD FOR OPERATING A LASER DISTANCE MEASURING DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for operating a laser distance measuring device (10), in particular a hand-held laser distance measuring device (10), based on a method in which a first distance (28a) from a first target point (30a) is determined with a laser distance measuring unit of the laser distance measuring device (10) by emitting a laser beam (20a) in a first distance measuring direction (24a), and subsequently, at least one second distance (24b) from a second intended target point (30b) is determined. According to the invention, an image (34b, 52a, 52b) at least of the target environment (36a, b) of the second target point (30b), captured by a camera (32) of the laser distance measuring device (10), is displayed on a display (14) of the laser distance measuring device (10), wherein at least one part of a connection line (50) is represented overlapping with the image (34b, 52a, 52b), said connection line connecting the first target point (30a) and the second target point (30b) in the displayed image (34b, 52a, 52b). The invention also relates to a laser distance measuring device (10) for carrying out the method.
