Summary: Pros: I find this unit to be pretty darn accurate as far as distances go. The battery life isn't to shabby either, and being able to throw in rechargeable or disposable AAA batteries is very convenient. Cons: A lot of the hazards and such found on other programs are no where to be found on my screen. Downloading courses can be a confusing and annoying task.
Summary: The product works fine, the problem is the courses I play are not available in their data base. Of the courses I regularly play, none of the 5 courses in northwest Iowa or the 4 courses I play in the southern Rio Grande Valley are available. I would recommend checking the data base prior to ordering. You can request a course, but don't expect much for a reponse. Fortunately, entering course data manually is not difficult.
Summary: Bought this as a Father's Day gift after doing online research. The good news is that my husband said I did pick the best product that he could tell, but I did pick the wrong model. This model was fairly hard to read the screen, so he is returning it and has already purchased the next model up... has a color screen which makes it easier to read.
