Summary: I suppose at the time it was great, however, now that you can get GPS without annual dues that function very efficiently I do not think I would be willing to purchase something that requires membership.
Summary: The SkyCaddie SG2.5 would not work upon arrival. I called SkyCaddie's toll-free number. They found that it was not receiving satellites and sent me the papers needed for return and sent me a new one.
Summary: I really like the SG2.5. I have used the SkyCaddie SG4 since 2008, and have played rounds with the SG5 and the newest SkyCaddie SGX (not sure this the correct acronym). Of all of these SkyCaddies, I really like the SG2.5 the best of all! It is compact, reliable, and cost effective.
Summary: Okay.... I have about 10 rounds played with this Skycaddie SG2.5 GPS unit and it has helped my game. At least my short game. I have learned my short irons and wedges yardages by using this device. The intelligreen feature is great.
Conclusion: Santa brought us a new Skycaddie 2.5 to supplement our old faithful Skycaddie 2.0. The size, while a little taller, is much more manageable since the casing is thinner and it will fit in places that were awkward with the former model.
Conclusion: I really like the size of this SG2.5 unit. A lot of times, i can just put it in my pocket and play the round since it's pretty thin and small compared to some of the other units. my only concern with this unit is its battery life. the battery bar is near the bottom at the end of the round.
Conclusion: I've had the 2.5 for nearly a year now. Now I'm spoiled and will never play without it. Technically, this is a great unit. It is very accurate giving front, middle & back of the green from any direction.
