I to have a Trupulse and find it useful certainly accurate on distances. 
Heights always difficult in confined areas when you are unable to stand back 
far enough, but often a case of getting your eye in. Check height measurement 
against a known height i.e. your home or office.
I do have a Haglof but find it less useful but they are a lot cheaper.

I bought a Trupulse a few years ago. If I'm honest I don't really like it; it 
commonly measures a distance of 25 metres when I think I'm nearer or further 
away than that. However whenever I check it with a tape measure, or on one 
occasion a Surveyor's extremely expensive load of kit, it seems to be about 
right. So I'm being unreasonable; but because I doubt the thing's 
measurements I end up wasting time checking them and checking them again, 
which might be no bad thing. I suppose I save a bit of time over the Haglof 
which still accompanies me to site.


I got mine from Positioning Resources on the grounds they were at the 
conference and had got a cheap deal going. They were very helpful, "cheap" 
being a relative concept in these matters of course.
