Summary: I purchased the SG5 some time ago and I have used it over 50 times. Initially, I was pleased with the product, but I found the buttons and selections not very intuitive and battery life rather poor.
Decent product, but look into other options first.

Summary: Unit works great and gives fairly accurate yardage readings. Dont like the idea of having to pay yearly subscription fees unlike some other brands, but skycaddie customer service is great. I wish I would have looked into an SG3.5 first though..
Summary: Just keep in mind you have to repay the membership fee every year or you SkyCaddie deactivates the courses you have downloaded. It just happened to me and I called SkyGolf to confirm. $50 per year for the multistate membership is kind of expensive.
Summary: The SG5 has worked at all of the golf courses I've used it at. I've had some issues with the yardage being off but most of the time it's pretty accurate. Battery life is pretty decent and will certainly last a round or two. My issue has to do with price and the ability to customize.
Summary: I have the sg5 & it is fairly easy to use although the hazards are sometimes not very well marked on the screen. It has definitely helped my game, but getting new courses listed is nearly impossible, I requested a course months ago, still waiting. Not very professional for the annual fee charged.
