Frequently Asked Questions
The VPRO 500 uses a CR2 cell battery that can be purchased at most stores.
Depending on frequency of use, the battery should last through an average golf season or approximately 40 to 50 rounds.
To change the unit of measurement, hold down the MODE button for 3 seconds to alternate from METERS to YARDS and vice versa.
The small metal knobs can be used together with the bungee on the opposite side of the case to close it quickly.
The battery is located just under the eye piece which you look through. Press down and push to slide it open.
Yes, all TecTecTec rangefinders are tournament legal in the US.
Please note that that slope mode is not tournament legal, but TecTecTec rangefinder models with slope mode (the VPRO500S, VPRO DLXS, and VPRODLX 1KS) have three other, non-slope calculating modes that the user can choose from.
The VPRO500/S and VPRODLX/S model is accurate at +/- 1 yard while the ULT-X model has an accuracy of +/- 0.3 yard.
The VPRO500/S can measure up to 540 yards while VPRODLX/S is up to 600 yards and the ULT-X model can measure up to 1000 yards.
The rangefinder should be stored at room temperature. The rangefinder works in cold and/or wet conditions; however prolonged exposure to extreme temperature and/or humidity may have adverse effects on the performance of the product.
The unit uses three modes, and you may need to try them all to see what works best. Golfers tell us that they prefer Normal Mode for targets inside 150 yards and Scan or Pin Seeker Mode for those that are further away.
A common error golfers make is having the rangefinder set to Meters when they are using Yards as their unit of measurement. To switch the unit of measurement, press and hold the MODE button for 2-3 seconds until the display reads Yd for yards or M for meters.
You may be pressing and holding the power button too long when trying to use Normal Mode. If you press and hold the power button, the rangefinder will try to give you various distances as though you measured a whole terrain rather than one target. Pressing the button and releasing it right away should allow the unit to perform as expected.
