I think I found what I was looking for from the specs link @ct shared.

~

Take indirect height and width measurements using the Pythagorean Theorem. The key is to make sure your second shot -- the "rectangular shot" -- is perpendicular to the point you are measuring, shown as the 90° angle in the images. The best way to ensure accuracy is to use a tripod and an adapter.

~ or maybe this tlit sensor reference ~

You're after the tilt sensor specification. Means it can calc all the distances based on the slope distance and tilt value.

Only thing to watch for it so check it's a full 360º tilt. Some are only ±45º, which are a bit of a fail for inverts.

@martin_au thanks a million, friend.  Ordered mine yesterday.  Looking forward to keeping my invert measure down notes nice and neat via the Bluetooth synched Leica Disto App on my iPhone too.

I am very encouraged by the ease of use and quick learning curve getting to know the app even before I have the device.  Imagine these two coffee cups are manholes out on site somewhere.

It measures the angle and slope and reports the calculated vertical.

Correct.  It does.  Well stated.  I just did not believe you before.  I do now.
