You want to switch off that annoying sound once and for all? This is how.

Switch it ON, push "clear" and "+" for about 5 seconds until you hear a beep. Finished.

So simple, yet so difficult....

Great!
I heard that you had to open it up and cut some wires to get rid of the sound.
How did you figure it out?

Do you mind if I can ask what you're talking about?

A Leica Disto is a handheld laser distance measuring tool that some 1st AC's use, well to measure distance.
They also use similar units made by Hilti.
