Summary: It was easy to get set up and I loaded all of my golf courses that I play during the initial set up. I did have difficult the second time I used it because I must have clicked a button that would only give me the distance to the green and not the complete hole. I'm still working on that.
Summary: My husband drives me crazy on the golf course trying to estimate the distance to the pin. This was a terrific Christmas gift for him and he's really happy with it. He went out Christmas morning to try out the unit on our golf course--in 6 inches of snow!
Summary: The ad for this product had indicated it was a used item and had been for 15 or 20 times. I was thrilled when it arrived and it didn't have a scratch on it. It did not appear to have been programmed with any courses, although it could have been cleaned up.
Summary: I have had the SG5 now for 3 months, and bought this model because (i) I was able to use a demo at my home course several times this year, and (ii) notwithstanding others are rated more highly for "great features" (see Critical Golf Reviews) this unit is easy to use and has more courses than other...
Summary: I have owned a SG5 for many years and have loved the ease of use and display features. Recently, the back lighting feature of the SG5 failed. I called SkyCaddie and they told me they are sending me a replacement unit and to ship the old one back. All this for no charge.
Summary: Just purchased the SG5 Skycaddie after owning the SG4, and I like this color gps. It is especially handy on courses I have never played, and it is accurate. I find I use it most often when I approach a hazard, and it helps me decide if I can clear the obstacle or lay up.
Summary: I have had my unit for 3 seasons now and it is incredible. The accuracy has been amazing and often knows better than the courses own direction. It has had every course I have gone to play except one.
Summary: I had an SG3 that served me well for 2 years, but I wanted to upgrade to the color SG5. I have been using it now for about 4 months and really can't say anything bad about it. Lately the foursome I have been playing with 3 of us have a GPS unit and 1 has a Laser System.
Summary: I just purchased the SG5 as an upgrade from the SG4. I considered switching to the Garmin G5 until I looked at their course list. The G5 was missing several of the courses I regularly visit. The SG5 is much more responsive and picks up satellites faster than the SG4.
