Summary: I have talked with friends since getting the SkyCaddie. It requires a membership in a club to get updates (not for me), it doesn't have a rechargeable battery (have you seen the price of batteries?), two AA batteries won't make it through two rounds of golf(you're kidding me). I'll be returning the SkyCaddie for a full refund after the holidays.
Summary: Very disappointed.... The Sky Caddie is being returned. Runs on batteries. Batteries sent with it did not work at all. Purchased new batteries. Used it for 9 holes of golf. At the next golf day, the batteries were dead. Very frustrating indeed.
Summary: The screw is way too short! Did not attach. Dealer said it was because my screw hole is stripped. It is not stripped, as I still use the original to wall charge the Sky Caddie. So, if I want to get my money back I have to spend another $5 to send the cable back (so far $10 in shipping) to get $10 refund.
Summary: I bought Skycaddie about one and half year ago and I was very excited. The working product really is a great help for your game. The additional cost of the service did not worry me as I would expect SkyGolf to generate revenue somehow and after all the memebership costs only fraction of what a good game of golf cost you. However I am really, really pissed off with the execution of the whole thing. The software reminds me something hacker would write in his garage shack.
Summary: Purchased connector - screw was too short - only way to contact vendor is thru his website. Tried for weeks - he first asked for his order number (purchased thru Amazon, then he told me to return to Amazon - being very frustrated , I posted a negative comment. Here is his answer, in his own words QUOTE I am not Amazon. I sell items on Amazon using their system, including their email response system.
