Summary: The Sonocaddie V500 I purchased works better than I ever thought it would. What I like most is how simple it is to operate. The color and layout of the holes is perfect for anyone's game. The battery lasts long enough to get in 18 plus holes before needing charged. If you want a yardage tool that is easy to operate and provides useful information this is the one for you.
Summary: Had this unit for over a year. Great visibility on the course. Simple to use. Never had it glitch. Less than 2 minutes to find satellites.Lock the screen and the unit auto updates from hole to hole. Battery Life is still outstanding. Up to 4 rounds without recharging.
Pros: Durability, Features, Quality, Easy to Use, Good Value
Summary: First I commend the shipment department for a timely shipment. I received it within three days of order. I have used the Sonnocaddie v500 for two 18 hole rounds and would be more if weather permitted. I have found no faults with this great GPS . The screen is very bright and clear. I like that I can lock the screen with a button on the side and can manually advance and back up to the desire hole with a buttons on the bottom front, automatic is great but I prefer to do it...
Summary: Love this gps. I have used it for 3 weeks and played several courses in the area and all were pre loaded. It could use more buttons as you must cycle through several peles to get were you need to be.
Summary: The V500 is a great product, easy to use, easy to see --- love it. I purchased the V300 several years ago and was impressed with the quality of the product and the ease of use and having a golf course added to their database. This is my first time dealing with preloaded courses and it's very easy to use.
Pros: Features, Quality, Easy to Use, Good Value, Durability
Summary: I play a lot of golf. I have owned two different Laser Rangefinders and I am on my third GPS as the technology has evolved. Lasers are very accurate in theory - but unreliable in actual use because I can't get the hang of aiming at the tiny flagstick from over 100 yards out, which is where I really need it.
Summary: Excellent GPS, its easy to read in all lighting, and its accurate. I went out with my friend who has the new garmin and they were giving the same readings, except my readings were on a bigger brighter screen and its half the thickness so it fits in your pocket like a cell phone. Easy to navigate software. Battery life is great, you can play 36 holes per charge and still have some life left over.
