Summary: I got mine a short while ago, spent a day with IGOLF trying to load the software. We finally decided it would not run so I got back my $35 for the software. I still have the unit, don't know what to do with it?
Summary: After our golf guru died, we purchased this golf GPS. I spent hours trying to download from iGolf. Even after 2 phone calls to customer service, and getting his directions via e-mail, I still had no success. Had my computer dr. Come to the house, he downloaded it, and when I took to the golf course today, it did not work. Turned it on, and hit "play golf" and nothing happened. Another item to toss.
Summary: This unit works very well & is easy to use; once loaded. The only problem is loading. The instructions indicate windows & mac are compatible for downloading. I have not been able to open downloads with mac. I had some trouble with windows until I found windows 7; which worked with ease. The instructions are not written in a manner that are easily followed & in my opinion not in the proper sequence.
Summary: I've used this in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, North & South Carolina with no problems at all. It will hold every golf course in the US, and you can download any course revisions at any time. Battery lasts about (3) 18 hole rounds before needing recharged. The accuracy compared to sprinkler heads is always within 1-2 yards. Gives you yardage to every water hazard/bunker - beginning and end.
