Summary: I purchased one of these for myself late last year and have absolutely loved using it - it is simple to set up and even easier to use. I have shaved off so many bad shots just knowing how far my next shot has to be that I purchased this unit for my best friend as a gift and I am sure he will love it...
Summary: It seems to handle the basic job of measuring distances well. I still have to learn how to use all of the functions, so I'm not sure yet. The one comment I will make is that I hit a ball which ended up on the left side of our 12th hole which is adjacent to the 18th hole.
Summary: Distances (yardage to green) are sometimes accurate but often are way off (up to 20 yards). At least three times per round the unit does not advance to the next hole and I have to stop and do it manually. Lack of confidence in the yardage readouts makes this thing useless.
Summary: This "used unit" was defective when it came in the mail. It was unable to link to satellites. Prior owner's name and phone number was still listed. Called him and he said he had to mail it back because of no link to sat. He said that he was mailed another Golf Buddy.
Summary: I have attempted to use this product twice since I have received it but for some reason once the course im playing is shown on the unit it does not show yardage it stays blank! Is it possible the unit is not working? Wondering what I can do to get it to work? Any ideas?
Summary: My golf buddy arrived in less than a week. Charged her up and went to play. Course recognition is good and the hole advances very well. On a few occasions it has changed holes to adjacent fairways but not a problem to manually switch back.
Summary: Got my Golf Buddy Tour GPS and took it to the golf course. Couldn't make it work. Would not pick up satellites. Contacted the seller and explained the problem. They said send it back and they promptly sent me another new one. It works fine. Well pleased with the purchase.
