Since their debut about 25 years ago, hunting-oriented laser rangefinders have become almost an essential tool for any long-range shooter or hunter. In those 25 years, laser rangefinders have adapted to meet more demanding requirements for durability, protection against inclement weather, increased ranging distance, and other useful feature sets. The new Leupold RX-5000 TBR/W is a rangefinder “for the modern hunter” and uses the popular onX Hunt app along with onboard GPS technology to help hunters navigate and track their kills precisely.

New Leupold RX-5000 TBR/W – The Modernized Rangefinder

For years, the value of a rangefinder has been determined by its capacity to measure distance. The focus was on pushing boundaries and reaching farther. But now, we’re stepping into a new era of rangefinding technology, where it’s not just about how many miles you can range. In this new landscape, the RX-5000 TBR/W is leading the way for the modern hunter.

It combines an extremely accurate 5,000-yard ranging performance with the ability to drop location pins right to your phone using the Leupold Control app and popular maps like onX Hunt. So whether you’re outlining the perfect approach for your next stalk, marking your game’s exact location, or setting up a course of fire at the range, wayfinding powered by a rangefinder puts you in complete control.

Imagine being able to range a target and instantly have its location appear on your smartphone. This is now possible with the RX-5000 TBR/W‘s pinning feature and the Leupold Control app. By aiming, ranging, and pinning, you can mark waypoints on digital mapping systems like onX Hunt, Google Maps, and Apple Maps, simplifying tasks like scouting and backcountry navigation.

But before you can drop pins accurately, you’ll need to calibrate the compass inside the RX-5000 TBR/W. In fact, calibrating at the start of every outing is essential to prevent environmental factors from affecting your pins. Regardless of where you hunt, whether it’s in the wide-open West or the hardwoods back East, you’ll need to adjust to the magnetic field of each location.
