This is a great product and I would recommend it to all my friends.

Summary: I bought this product to determine distance on my home golf course and others. The product is very helpful and once you use it a few times, it works better. It always knows what golf course I am playing and boots up fairly quickly. This is the first product of it's kind that I have owned, but compared to what my other friends have, it's much easier to use and it's great not to have to load it or pay any yearly fees.
Summary: Great little item. Looks like a small cellphone. Tells you the distance to the front, middle and back of the green. Keeps track of your scores. If you have a really nice drive, you can mark your spot and go to your ball and it will give the the distance that the ball was hit. I keep it clipped to my belt. Sometimes it takes a little while to find the course upon start up but once it does, it stays locked on.
Summary: I purchased the Golf Buddy Tour GPS about a month ago. So far it has performed as advertised. Several of us have them and the yardages are usually within a yard of each other. This gives you much more confidence in picking the proper club. I have only found 1 course that we play that is not in the "system". I would recommed this GPS for anyone, if they want to know the real distance to the target, bunker, or hazard.
I like the courses being loaded, and when I have it awhile, I'll say it;s g

Summary: A litle hard at the beginning to navigate, but gets easier the longer I use it. The manual is small and could be helped by being clearer. I've only had it 2 days and I am sure it will clearup.
Summary: It's nice to have the Golf Buddy Tour Edition automatically select the golf course and the hole you are playing. I like the idea that there are no annual membership fees. The Sky Caddie had a $50.00 annual fee! Enjoying my new "Buddy"!
Summary: Good tool to be used in US but not worldwide. The product description says "comes pre-loaded with course information from across the world". However, if you plan to use it outside of US, make sure to check the company's course library before you buy it. You may be disappointed to find the country you're visiting not on the list.
Summary: Good unit. I love the no annual subscription fee. All the courses I have played so far have been mapped. Accurate to 2-3 yards most of the time, verified by range finder and course markers. Most helpful with club selection in the fairway, hitting more greens now. Only 4 stars because it doesnt have the entire hole on screen but knew this going in. Great product for the price.
