Very handy and excellent
I got one as a Christmas present and have used it on approximately 15 different courses since then, from Texas to Florida, South and North Carolina, and Minnesota. It was easy to set up on my laptop has worked without a hitch on every course. It may take a few minutes to locate the course, so turn it on shortly before you head to the first tee. I find the yardages to be very accurate, comparable to those of cart-mounted GPS units. I can't think of playing golf without it now. Get one!
I really like it. It's small and tells you the basics of what you need to know. Elegant design. Long life battery easily getting me 2 full rounds. Accurate save for the isolated anomalies that seem to be associated with golf gps devices. I struggle a bit doing the 'swipe' to get yardage to front or back. I just double click instead and get both front and back yardages, but mostly just go by yardage to center and quickly calculate from there depending on where the pin is located. This device does allow you to concentrate on your golf rather than the device. I;ve found that it does take some while to find the course, but once it does, it seems to lock in well. I;ve found that it wont find the course at all if I have it clipped to my belt. Sometimes I dont wear a hat, so i clip it to the front of my golf shirt by the buttons. The clip is strong and holds very well. The magnetic ball marker is a nice touch
Great compact device for getting yardage. One click tells you to the center. Where I play a lot there are 3 zones where the pin may be and the distance to front/back of the green is very useful. Voice is very clear and where I have played where there is GPS in the cart, this device matches the cart GPS. Gives me confidence that where I play with this as my GPS device. Overall very impressed.
My wife bought this for me for my b'day. First time I used it I was lucky enough to get to play at a course where a PGA tour event is held each year and it gave me the correct distance on every hole just the wrong hole number. I kept resetting and it would never set to the correct hole. (It said #1 was #10 and #2 was #12 etc..Gave front nine as back nine and back nine as front nine) I then used it two days later on another course and it was dead on..No problems at all. I think that there was just something to do with the first outing being the course that it was and not the unit itself.. I would recommenced it. It was with in a yard or two of a scoped yardage device every time. It was quiet enough not to bother anyone around me as well. In fact my playing partners started listening to it for yardages or asking me what it said. I had about 30% of battery life left after each round. IMO it's a great product for the amateur golfer.Instructions tell you to turn on early to find the course as it takes about 5 minutes. It will alert you when the course is found.
