Summary: It's outdated.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.
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...) and the SG5 doesn't even last through the round and completely shuts down after about 14 holes. I will not buy another Skycaddie because of the battery problems.
Ok, but not great...expensive...and better things out there

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. The SkyCaddie does a fine job of determining distances and it is easy to enter the pin location on the green. That is what we want from a Golf GPS, so why the 2 star review?
