Summary: This is a pretty good little unit but temperamental. I haven't had the problem with automatically locating the golf course but it does sometimes take up to 12 minutes to display. Usually, it takes ~5 minutes. The issue that I have is this. If you put it in your pocket, the display drops off. It looses the signal. When you take it out of your pocket, it does search and give a reading but there is a delay before it comes up. This can be annoying.
Summary: This GPS works well - sometimes. One problem is that, as the instructions say, you have to turn it on and set it down somewhere in the open so it can access satellites. You are warned that it may take as much as five minutes to do so. I have found this feature very inconvenient. Other GPS's can access virtually instantaneously. Sometimes it gives me a message to the effect that it can't access enough satellites at the location.
Summary: I was really happy to see that eventhough it was used, it was in a perfect condition, without any signs of scratches. I bought it for approximately 69 Dollars, but to my surprise I had to pay transfer $45 and customs anothe euros 38, and subscription fees at IGOLF.COM. The main problem I have is that the IGOLF.com that provides with mapping of courses, their mapping is not accurate at all.
