Summary: This GPS from GolfBuddy never worked. The first problem was a CCS error on the start-up screen. I took it in to the GolfBuddy repair center. They fixed that problem. However, it then couldn't get a satellite signal. I received instructions on a software fix, but that did not work. Finally, I returned the unit to the retailer. I am waiting for a replacement. Hopefully, it will function properly.
Summary: I bought the Golf Buddy for my only Christmas present. I thought it would be a good replacement for SG3 Sky Caddie that I was ready to upgrade. Following the directions they gave you, it seemed easy to use. The detailed screen though had a very small font that was very difficult to see in the sunlight. I also found that it would switch to another fairway which was confusing to me on my distance numbers.
Conclusion: terrible experience. golf buddy advertisment claims that every availbility course in north america is pre-downloaded, only 1 golf course within 50 mile radius of where i live where as golf caddy has 22 courses listed. have made 3 request to have 4 courses i play including my own course, asked for a response each time and yet to recieve any. get different answers from golf buddy each time i call so gonna send gps back for refund and buy a different gps.
Summary: I bought a Golf Buddy Tour and used it for three days. The first day the distances seemed to be inaccurate. The second day I measured from known spots on the course and got reading from 25 yards too high to 20 yards too low. I then called Golf Buddy and through the internet we "updated" the software and the targets the Golf Buddy used. I then used the Golf Buddy for the third day.
Summary: The Golf Buddy is at best medicre. What is really terrible is the customer service. The Warranty doesnt get respected. There was a manufacturer defect with the LCD, but the warranty didnt cover the defect after only 2 weeks. I called Golf Buddy directly, and after speaking to many managers and even the Vice President. They started with an estimate of $75 - $100, and then went down to $50 and then finally $35.
