Zip Mode ignores all returns from targets closer than a specific distance (usually about 150 yards), so you can get past foreground clutter to range a more distant target.
In the Zip mode, the rangefinder will disregard any feedback from secondary targets, such as tree limbs and brush, providing only an accurate read-out for the primary target.
The Yardage Pro Scout has Scan and Zip modes (the latter for foreground clutter situations) as well as built-in Rain and Reflector features.
