  • Your PLR Laser Measure is connected to another smartphone / tablet: Disconnect the Bluetooth® connection of these devices in order to establish a new connection.
  • You are trying to establish the Bluetooth® connection via the settings menu of your smartphone / tablet. Please use the connection assistant of PLR measure&go.

If the above-mentioned tips do not provide a solution, it helps to switch Bluetooth® off and after a short time back on again in the PLR device.

You are trying to transfer a measurement that is not compatible with this app (e.g. volume).

The size of the project exceeds 15 MB. Projects with a size of 15 MB or more cannot be exported.

Establish a Bluetooth® connection between your PLR Laser Measure and PLR measure&go and select a project. Create a project if necessary. As soon as the devices are connected and a project has been selected, the measured values will be automatically transferred in real time and saved in the measured value list of the project. If you have added an element beforehand, the measured value will be entered directly into the element.

You can view and use your measured values by opening a plan and tapping the arrow on the right-hand edge of the screen.

No. Only the values measured while the Bluetooth® connection is active are saved in the app. In the upper menu bar you can see whether a device is connected.

Maximum 50 measured values are stored per project. Marked values, which are already entered in elements, do not count towards these 50 measured values.

Make sure that no element is marked. Then open the measured value list and tap on a measured value. A row of calculation options will then open at the bottom edge of the screen.

Yes. First mark an element and then click on the number symbol at the bottom edge of the screen.

Marked measured values are assigned to an element in your plan. Unmarked measured values are not.

All data is saved automatically.
