So they did the same thing as Milwaukee One Key and DeWalt Tool Connect.

Yeah impressive...

Re: What's New With Bosch


So the angle grinder tells you when it's going to do a melt down? Do you really need to have the machine tell you when you're bearing down on it?

Re: What's New With Bosch


Hey it creates another job... CTDM... Connected Tool Device Manager... a millennial gets a job using a tool that doesn't intimidate them...

When you have to spend time with your phone to interact with your tool, you might have a productivity killer on your hand...

I like the special app. Has really state of the art features like turning the LED on and off under pressure and adjusting how long the led stays on for when your done using. I love it.

Does it dial 9-1-1 when it senses blood?

Re: What's New With Bosch


I too like the ability to fine tune the tools. Would be nice to have less torque some times on my impact. I know I could carry my drill instead, but my drill weighs about twice what my impact does, not to mention the larger overall profile.

Re: What's New With Bosch


so wait, the battery powered drill needs ANOTHER battery to power the comm device? Some of the different controls are neat, but are they really necessary?

Re: What's New With Bosch


The module is powered by a watch battery which probably lasts a good while under normal use and makes it where that part is live even if there's no battery mounted on the tool. I leave my recip and circ saw sans battery all the time. OMT and drill and impact pretty much see daily use, so there's always a battery on those

I like the idea of having a remote switch for the lights.

I agree. I would never buy a tool for the Bluetooth.

Re: What's New With Bosch


I just need my tools to do the job they are intended for. No space age crap to eventually fail. Just screw, drill and cut. Just like a new phone, you play with it for a while, then just use it and ignore all the goofy crap.

I do like the meters on batteries, but that's all I need. I am a gadget geek, but at work, I just wanna work.

Re: What's New With Bosch


I'm still fuming about the time a year ago: Tile guy comes in to do the back splash on a kitchen remodel. Dude spent more time trying to get his dadgum bluetooth phone to play through his pifflewhomper bluetooth speaker, than he did actually putting up the fizzin backsplash.
It was after lunch before he actually started putting up tile.

That's ridiculous. I use a Bluetooth headset to listen to my music, and it connects automatically when I turn it on. Also announces the name of the caller (if it's a saved contact), & lets me answer calls hands free, so if I happen to have my hands tied up, which I usually do, I don't have to stop what I'm doing.
