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: Used for about 10 rounds - yardage is good, scoring OK, but when you are trying to gauge a shot distance, it takes anywhere from 10 to more than 30 seconds from the time I pull it from my belt clip for the unit to actually display the yardage. Most of the time I have to hit the "map" function and add the 2 yardages together to gey my distance. Then, when I go back it will usually show the yardage within 5 seconds or so.
Summary: Having problems with support from Bushnell. GPS unit does not work properly. Cannot get any help from Bushnell. When I do get connected, with support ,which takes forever. Wait time is 15 to 20 minutes on average. They cut me off. Very P Oed. They need an email address so customers can or maybe get some response, if they don't want to speak with you.
Badly Designed, Bulky, Lousy software, Defective unit too

Summary: I am now a total expert on Bushnell Golf GPS's having owned the Yardage Pros XG, XGC and Neo. Of these, the XGC was the only one that worked properly. It has problems, but I was able to read yardage. But this is an XG Review: Pros: Good Satellite Reception. Good data (with $35 subscription to iGolf - annual.
Summary: I am now a total expert on Bushnell Golf GPS's having owned the Yardage Pros XG, XGC and Neo. Of these, the XGC was the only one that worked properly. It has problems, but I was able to read yardage. Pros: Good Satellite Reception. Good data (with $35 subscription to iGolf - annual. But you can cancel after a year if you've already downloaded all the courses you want) Solidly made (though very bulky) Good Buttons Works!
Summary: I have had a Yardage Pro for over a year and have had several problems. #1 the rubber USB port cover is poorly designed since it's attachment point is very thin and runs under the edge of the battery cover. You must constantly remove the battery cover to unplug & replug the battery to soft reset the unit after it regularly freezes up. Soon the USB cover tears off leaving the port open to rain, water, ....
Summary: I bought this device and it would not sync with my computer, after three attempts with customer service, it finally worked, only to find out that my home course did not have the image files and I had to request them, after a two week wait, I was told it would not be available. Five calls later they finally decided to remap the course and it was wrong. Very frustrating to deal with. I finally remapped the holes myself but certainly will never buy their products again.
Summary: I was hopeful that the Bushnell GPS would have been as advanced as their line of sight products. No so. The color and digital display of yardage are good but that is where it ends. Difficult to set up, poor visual on the course selection and the map function has only worked once in the last 10 times I played. Also, when charging, there is no indicator showing the the charging is complete. If you are looking for yardage only this device is acceptable.
