Excerpt: There is nothing to say about the SkyCaddie SG5 Rangefinder except that it is arguably one of the best rangefinders on the market today. The SG5 is an updated version of the SG2.5 and, as such, comes with all of the features that most avid golfers have come to expect, like distance recording and a durable design.
Excerpt: The SkyCaddie SG5 Golf GPS is a top notch competitor, but the Intelligreen Technology is not enough to carry it over the uPro. While, Intelligreen is a great feature the unit lacks in other places. The signal strength was an issue at times as this unit doesn’t offer as many channels as the competition. The main problem is the downloading of courses. You must maintain a membership to use the downloads as they are not available to save on your computer for future use.
Pros: Intelligreen Technology (allows you to rotate the green based on your position and gives accurate distance to the new locations on the green), Color Display, Courses are mapped by the company by sending a crew to map it out, Auto Hole Advance, Ability to calculate shot distance, Rechargeable Battery, Battery life of about 14 hours, Compatible with Windows and Mac, Detailed fairway, hazard and green targets
Cons: Holds 10 courses, 9+ GPS Channels (lacks compared to competitors), Courses are only available if you continue your membership, Price ($399.95), No score tracking
