Good Unit but tempermental

The Passageyank "PassageYank", Amazon
27 December 2011
  • 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.

Bushnell Neo + GPS

Kanestian, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • 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.

Pretty decent GPS

onin24eagle, Amazon
16 May 2011
  • 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. However, I'd have to say that I'm not quite as pleased with the accuracy out of the box. On the courses I play a lot I find myself using the "remapping" feature quite a bit the first time around.

Bushnell Neo vs Neo +

Don McCarron, Amazon
24 December 2010
  • 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. The garden variety Neo requires a subscription at $40.00 or so/year, Holds daya on about 10 courses - so if you travel, move etc you need to keep the subscription active to add new courses.

bushnell neo GPS Receiver

karacry9234, Ebay
7 November 2010
  • 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.

Good Value for a Basic GPS Unit

Nigel Wilson, Amazon
24 October 2009
  • 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. uPro Golf GPS by Callaway Golf and iGolf GPS Caddie II ) require a much more detailed level of course data in order for you to benefit from the expense. I found that this level of data was available for none of the courses I play regularly, so I decided to go for a simpler solution.
