Summary: I recently purchased the GPS-8 to replace my original GolfLogix GPS. This item has lived up to all the original atributes of my old unit as for ease of use and giving me location of the three needed positions of the green. I received the unit just in time to take it to the National Golf Championship at Sawgrass this year. It was a real plus there.
Summary: This receiver is unusable. It won't download the courses for me. I bought this product to replace the one I broke. I know how to use the device and am familier with the process to download courses. It doesn't work. Comes on but won't download.
Summary: Only used twice so far but i realy like it so far. Shot my best round this year with it. Also speeds up the game. Only trouble i had, is when the batteries went dead, i put new ones in and it took me a while to get back to where i was at on the course.
Summary: Clear display, easy to load and use, precise and accurate distances to green, sand traps or water hazzards shown every time. Automaticly advances to next hole. Makes choice of clubs simple and improves scoring. Only thing that could be better is if you could make one to read the break of the greens and distance to cup when putting.
Summary: I Love this product. It is very easy to use. Login to website and download courses you want to store. When you arrive at the course you turn it on and it knows where you are. Display is very good even in direct sunlight. I'm not Tiger but it gives me all the info I need to make confident swing. I get front, back and middle distances to the green and it tells how far to any hazard. What else does a 9 handicap need? If only I could figure out a way to make it putt for me!!
Summary: I have one of these of my own I bought this one for a gift for a friend I enjoy mine very much and use it every time I am on the course I would recommend this gps to anyone that enjoys playing golf.
Summary: I play golf 2-3 times a week at various courses in different states and have been using this device for almost 2 years. Over that time period I have found this unit to be very accurate with very rare exception. It is very durable, easy to use, and I heartily recommend it.
Summary: I love this product, only problem is it sometimes freezes before I get started, all i do is shut it off and turn it back on and its fine. Used it in the Cape for a long weekend of golf. Every course I looked up was easily loaded onto the unit. A must buy for decent players. I shoot low 80's to mid 90's. Speeds up my game and helps with club selection so it has lowered my average slightly since ive been using it!
Does what its supposed to do and does it well. Good buy

Summary: I rate it a good only because it does not have all the bells and whistles that a lot of its competitors have; like color graphics for one. Its accurate, good battery life, works with Macs, and provides you the distance of your last shot with the press of a button. And it does it all for an attractive price. Good enough for me.
