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.
Opted for a lower cost , no gimmick, earlier model rangefinder, surprised!

Summary: I needed accurate ranging for different tree stands and blinds, and I didn't want to spend a small fortune for the newer optical rangefinders. This earlier model Bushnell Yardage Pro, purchased for under $100, including shipping, is performing better than expected. The 4x magnification with digital technology has been clear, accurate, and simple to use, even in low light conditions.
Good for the money. Especially if you only play a limited number of courses

Summary: This was a replacement for one that I purchased a couple years ago and decided that all yardage was now 999. I purchased 100 courses which are on my laptop and are mine to use with the replacement. The price had dropped enough to buy another. It is very easy to use and gives you the yardage to green. I do however also use a Bushnell Yardage Pro laser to shoot to traps, laying up or to flags with wedges.
