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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
