Ok, but not great...expensive...and better things out there

Keith, Amazon

  • Summary: I received the SG5 for my first Father's Day almost 3 years ago. I have used it for many rounds and never really thought too much of how it performed as I liked it and I loved having access to yardage information in my pocket.

Skycaddie SG5 Golf

Johnny R. Dela Pena, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: It didn't work for me the first time I used it. First it's taking a lot of time to download going the next hole, the touch screen doesn't really help much. The laser finder would be much convenient just point and get the reading rather than this sg5.

Frustrating web site to download courses

Lynn Wilbur, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: It's outdated. Buy a GPS that comes pre loaded with courses. Or plan on spending a half hour or so waiting for the unit to update and download a new course. Very slow. IMHO a range finder is more useful anyway.

Don't Expect more than 2 years

Jerry W. Kranzler, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: I give it two stars. One for each year it worked. It did work well for those two years. All of a sudden this year it won't go longer than 3 holes before it says the battery is about dead. It then shuts down. After the round I check the battery with the diagnostics and it says 70%.

Big problems with battery....

Julie Klindt Peele, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: This is the 2nd Skycaddie I've owned and purchased this after my original Skycaddie finally died. After two years of (alot) of use I am very disappointed that I could get no more usage out of the SG5 because of battery issues. I replaced the battery (at some significant cost...

difficult and expensive

Patrick Rogers, Amazon
14 June 2009
  • Summary: It takes a computer to download courses and if you are away from home and don't know the course names before leaving home, it's of no use. $40 /year to usew is rediculous since others are free. I now use a Garmin watch style and it works everywhere, although difficult to charge
