Leica DISTO D8-The versatile one for in- and outdoor

The most versatile laser distance meter in the world! Equipped with a digital Pointfinder, high-resolution 2.4“ colour display, 360° tilt sensor and bluetooth® technology, the Leica DISTO™ D8 is a real world first and offers completely new measuring options.

With Leica Disto D8 measurement results can be transferred wirelessly and without errors to pocket-PCs or PCs using the integral BLUETOOTH® technology, where they can be further processed quite easily in Excel®, AutoCAD® or other software. The AutoCAD® plug-in provides a convenient means of using the data for designing and drawing in AutoCAD®.


  • Digital Pointfinder with 4x zoom
  • Large colour display screen (2.4 inches)
  • 360° Inclination measurement
  • Bluetooth® – reliable data transfer
  • DISTO™ transfer software and AutoCAD® plug-in included

The digital Pointfinder with 4x zoom allows you to point quickly and easily at far-off objects, in bright sunlight too. Even when the laser dot is no longer visible to the naked eye, the target can be clearly seen on the 2.4“ high resolution colour display, allowing absolutely precise distance measurements to be made, even over great distances.

Despite its wealth of functions, the Leica DISTO™ D8 Laser Distance Meter is simple to operate thanks to its optimised user interface. And extremely handy; it can easily fit into any pocket. Its robust design with IP 54 protection keeps out dust and splash-water. This instrument completes the product family of laser distance meters. With its introduction, Leica Geosystems highlights the innovative power of the company and establishes  a new benchmark in the world of measuring.

360° tilt sensor
The combination of angle and distance measurements allows you to determine distances where conventional methods fail. The horizontal distance, for example, can also be determined quickly and efficiently past obstacles or the elevation of a tree, even though there is no reflective point.

Digital Viewfinder / Pointfinder
Thanks to the digital Pointfinder with its 4x zoom and high resolution 2,4“ colour display, you can measure long range distances quickly and easily because you always see your targeted point.

With integrated BLUETOOTH® technology, measurement results can be wirelessly and accurately transferred to Pocket PCs and PCs. Thus you can easily process your data in Excel®, Word®, AutoCAD® and other programs.

Free software
The delivery package contains the transfer software “Leica DISTO™ Transfer” – easy to install and with automatic updates. The AutoCAD® plug-in additionally allows convenient planning and drawing with your AutoCAD® software.
