Great product. Useful tool for all skill levels. A must have for any golfer

Summary: Great product! Every golfer, if they can manage to, should own this device or a device like it. You will know what your distances are to the green from anywhere on the hole. No more walking off distances, or relying on yardage markers. You'll know how far you hit every club in your bag as you can mark off your position from wherever you hit the ball, and check the distance when you arrive at the landing spot.
Best thing I spent my money on this year, love my SkyCaddie!

Summary: Had seen several friends using a device like this and it seemed to be helping their game and mine as I looked over their shoulder to get distances. It gives you accurate distances to hazards, greens, OB, and to layup targets. I have gotten to know exactly how far my irons and driver will actually carry as a benefit that I didn't expect. I had to play a round without my sky caddie and felt LOST out on the course.
Summary: Not so much a review of the product, but of the company. My unit's firmware was corrupted during an attempted fix by an SG Tech, making it unable to be recognized by a PC, whereupon SG charged me $30 to replace a unit they had fried. Will not do business with this company again, too many competitors that are better, especially those that do not require a yearly membership or entail laborious downloads. I would suggest looking at Golf Buddy.
Conclusion: I recently purchased the SkyCaddie SGX GPS device. I have owned 2 Sky Caddies before, the SG4, and the SG5 and now the SGX. I have used it 5 times now, purchased the top tier membership plan. I am not overly pleased with the SGX. The screen is certainly larger that the 5 and it does have good graphics. Distances displayed are quite accurate (I compared them to 2 different on cart GPS systems).
