Summary: I owned the original Igolf version that held only 10 courses for over 4 years and it finally broke because of the one piece non replaceable button strip that wore out on the unit. I have to tell you I absolutely loved it and was sorry that it broke.
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.
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.
Summary: Got the newer one with the 16000 preloaded courses on it. Every course I've played in my local area (North-Central MN) is on here. Considering that and the fact that I do not have to bother loading courses on my computer I'd say it's worth the money right there.
Summary: The most important issue when selecting a golf GPS unit is the availability and accuracy of course data. Many of the more advanced (and more expensive) units (e.g. and ) require a much more detailed level of course data in order for you to benefit from the expense.
Summary: I kept the NEO for only 2 weeks then traded it for the NEO +. The NEO was slow to find the course I selected and was way too cumbersome to set up. For a few extra dollars I recomend getting the NEO+.
Summary: The Bushnell Neo is OK at best. While the price difference appears to set it apart from the Neo+ - in reality they cost about the same and the plus is far better. The difference - the plus comes pre-loaded with all the compatible courses - a huge number - no additional cost.
