Shocking, won't work and SHOCKING SERVICE FROM SELLER!!!

Summary: Impossible to install software. Needs VERY old version of JAVA which is impossible to find and even when you DO find and install JAVA, the Neo won't sync. Bushnell simply claims ignorance (and you wait forever to get feedback from them!). I'm horrified as THE SELLER, refuses to accept the return. Never been so disappointed. STAAAAAAYYYY AWAY! They should blacklist this seller!
Summary: This was a great value, But having lost my first neo 368150 this item does not compare. It is difficult to load the courses and it only holds 10 at a time. The 368150 had 16,000 pre-loaded courses. Be sure to check the model number before you buy one because they look exactly the same.
Summary: Still have not been able to down load golf courses with the free Igolf membership. So I would not recommend this product to anyone. I plan on selling mine next summer in a yard sell and look for another brand that is more user friendly.
You will shoot lower scores with this GPS......love it!!!

Summary: love this device as much as my 8 iron...!! This is the second Neo+ that I have owned. Unfortunately I lost my first one after one season. Missed it so much I began looking for another...got lucky and found new Neo+ Ebay for a super price. I will definitely keep a close eye on the nes w. Had to share that story to illustrate how great this device is.....every course I've played is programmed into the NEO, including military bases. Ease to use.
Summary: The device itself rates 5 stars, but when connected with igolf.com it rates zero. After 45 days it says you must register with igolf.com but that is impossible. I have found a solution however, Call Bushnell's customer service and they will give you igolf.com's phone number, which they do not list on their website. Once you have the phone number for igolf they will walk you through the sync process.
Summary: The Bushnell Neo is awesome! If you are looking for the basics, like I was then this is the toy for you. Gives you front, middle and back of the green. Shot distance and with a little knowledge you can mark shot points. We have a par 4 that requires a "ball placement shot" I marked the shot and now when I get to that hole, no matter where the tees are it gives the exact distance for the shot. The only problem is you have to PAY for courses to download!
If you want to show off get one of the high doller ones, big spender

Summary: For someone that just need yardage this is the way to go. No extra fees. You do have to go to igolf web site but other then a email address and a made up phone number no problems. I did have to update the java on my home computer to be able to sync with igolf but probably most people wont have to. I like how I can measure the distance of the shot. And really all I need to know is how far to the center of the green.
