CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PURCHASE OF THE BUSHNELL® TOUR V3™ INCORPORATING PINSEEKER™ TECHNOLOGY WITH JOLT™.The TOUR V3 is a precision Laser Rangefinding optical instrument designed to provide many years of enjoyment. This booklet will help you achieve optimum performance by explaining its adjustments and features as well as how to care for this precise laser rangefinding optical instrument. To ensure optimal performance and longevity, please read these instructions before using your TOUR V3.
Your Tour V3 is Bushnell’s newest addition to an award winning line of golf laser rangefinders specifically made for golfers. Tour V3 features PinSeeker™ technology with JOLT™, allowing the golfer to easily and quickly “zero” in on the flag without acquiring background targets. The Tour V3 weighs a mere 6.6 ounces and made to fit into the palm of your hand. Tour V3 also features an adjustable eyepiece, 5X magnification, and is capable of providing distance from 5 to 1000 yards with incredible one yard accuracy! Like other Bushnell laser rangefinders, the Tour V3 is not dependent upon reflectors, and will provide distance to trees, bunkers, and virtually any object on any golf course in the world.
HOW OUR DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY WORKS
The TOUR V3 WITH PINSEEKER emits invisible, eye safe, infrared energy pulses. The TOUR V3’s Advanced Digital microprocessor and ASIC chip
The ranging accuracy of the TOUR V3 is plus or minus one yard/meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 700 yards/640 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards/914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured.
The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. Red is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit’s maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit’s maximum range.
INSERTING THE BATTERY
Remove the battery cap by lifting the battery cap tab and then rotating counter clockwise. Insert a
NOTE: It is recommended that the battery be replaced at least once every 12 months.

ADJUSTING THE EYEPIECE
Your TOUR V3 is constructed with an adjustable eyepiece (+/- 2 Diopter Adjustment) that allows one to focus the LCD display relative to the image. Simply rotate the eyepiece until the reticle and object distanced to are both in focus to your eye.
While looking through the 5x eyepiece, depress the POWER/FIRE button once to activate the
LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY (LCD) INDICATORS
Your TOUR V3 ’s LCD incorporates illuminated icons or symbols that indicate the selected unit of measure, when the laser is actively firing, when a target has been acquired, and targeting modes. A summary of these features follows:
MODE and UNIT OF MEASURE OPTIONS
The TOUR V3 can be used to measure distances in yards or meters. The unit of measure indicators are located in the lower right portion of the LCD. To select between yards and meters, press and hold the POWER/FIRE button. The display will begin to cycle through the setup options: Yards w/JOLT, Yards, Meters w/JOLT, Meters (for details on the JOLT feature, see “About JOLT”). When the units and JOLT mode you want to use are displayed, release the POWER/FIRE button to select it. If you are changing from yards to meters, a change in unit of measure will be indicated by the illumination of the M for meter indicator while the Y for Yard indicator is turned off. If you are changing from meters to yards, the opposite will occur. The TOUR V3 will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on.
Crosshairs surrounding the aiming circle indicate that the laser is being transmitted. Once a range has been acquired, you can release the POWER/FIRE button. The crosshairs surrounding the circle will disappear once the POWER/FIRE button has been released (i.e. the laser is no longer being transmitted).
PinSeeker (LCD Indicator
Press the POWER/FIRE button to turn the unit on. Next, align the aiming circle reticle onto the flag that you want distance to. Then, press and hold the POWER/ FIRE button and move the laser slowly over the flag or desired object until a circle surrounds the flag indicator. If the laser beam recognized more than one object (i.e. flag and background trees), distance of the flag will be displayed and a circle will surround the PinSeeker indicator informing the user that distance to the flag (i.e. closer object) is being displayed in the LCD (as seen below). There may be times when only the laser beam only sees one object in its path. In this case, the distance will be displayed, but because more than one object was not acquired, a circle will not surround the flag indicator.
TIP: While pressing the POWER/FIRE button, you can move the device slowly from object to object and intentionally force the laser to hit multiple objects to ensure that you are only displaying the closest of the objects recognized by the laser.
Once the device has shut off, the unit will always default back to the last mode used.
The new JOLT feature allows you to enable (at your
Tour V3 - Slope Edition (LCD Indicator - °) This advanced and patented technology found on SLOPE EDITION models features a
How Slope™ Works
Press the POWER/FIRE button to obtain distance to the flag or other objects. Once the range is acquired, release the POWER/FIRE button. Once you have released the power button, a degree of angle and compensated range will be displayed beneath the standard distance as seen below.
In the example on the right, the true distance is 162 yards, slope is +4 degrees, and
the compensated range is 173 yards. The “” symbol means
The Advantage of Slope Edition
The distance to flag A in the drawing below is 162 yards. It is also 162 yards to flag B although it is on a slope. However, if you were to play this hole as 162 yards, the ball (X) would fall short of the hole/flag because you did not take slope into account.
Standard with Automatic SCAN: To use the Automatic SCAN feature, simply hold down on the POWER/ FIRE button for approximately 3 seconds and SCAN the rangefinder from object to object while leaving the POWER/ FIRE button depressed. Automatic SCAN will allow the range and display to be continuously updated as multiple objects are targeted.
Magnification and Coatings
The TOUR V3 features 5x magnification and
Molded into the bottom of your TOUR V3 is a threaded tripod mount that will allow you to attach to the following Bushnell Golf Accessories:
