Annual membership fee is a drawback. Other brands available. Shop around.

hockeyhead704, Ebay
24 March 2014
  • Summary: Unless you willing to pay an annual membership stay away from these type units. For the cost of the unit the least they could do is give you a 1 year free membership. It might be a good unit, but there are other brands that offer pre-loaded courses, free updates, and NO membership or annual fees. I was lucky in that I was able to sell this unit 2 days after my eBay win.

HORRIBLE/NON EXISTING CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Tae Hoon Lee, Amazon

  • Summary: While I was upgrading their software or firmware (don't recall), Skycaddie just froze and stop working for good. Tried to solve online w/ a tech guy, he just said that was not fixable...therefore I should contact a customer support for a replacement. I have tried that but never got an response...

User Review

mbient, GolfReview.com
26 August 2012
  • 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.

Avoid it!

Payton "Mike J", Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: I have had other SkyGolf GPS range finders, and in each instance have had difficulty linking them with my computer for registration, updates, course downloads, membership payments, and the like. However, nothing compares to the mess SkyGolf has created with the SGX. It is nearly impossible to "sync" and when you finally get that done you will find many features don't work. Not to fear - there is an update.

Just awful experience for this Mac user

Mike B, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: Not sure where all the great reviews are coming from. If you go to the SkyGolf website, all you see is pages of angst. I've had nothing but problems from day one with installs and updates for the mac. The brand new update rendered my SGX unable to sych at all now. (If I could, I'd deactivate it in prep for a return.) PLEASE WAIT until they work out the bugs before buying, and take a look at the skygolf forums as well.

Don't buy it yet

Eddie Haskell, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: The new SkyCaddie SGX started shipping the first week of April 2010 and I received mine directly from the company yesterday. It was released without a proper driver for Windows applications being available and as a result you are currently unable to sync the unit with the Sky Golf website. I found a work around process for Windows to accept the existing driver (F8 at start-up) by using a Google search, but it still didn't solve the sync issue.

Stone age technology at space age price

Mr. Robert Wells "bobwells999", Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: The most antiquated piece of technology I own. Takes a minutes to power up and then a few minutes to find a satellite signal and become functional. When updating courses the web based software comms is snail pace. Have they ever seen an iphone? Hopeless processor speed. This is second unit as first froze after a couple of years. Replaced with refurbiched unit which now has a display fault I need to live with.

beware of poor service when battery life is near end

stevem, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Initially thought what a great product, whilst everything working ok. But!!! Please note that when you have problems with it they do not repair in the uk, so due to 'not being economically viable' to send to the states they sell you a used replacement with 3 month guarantee for £100 approx, this on top of initial cost plus annual fees what a rip off, my replacement lasted about 5months, guess what could get another for 100 quid again, disgusting!!!!

SGX poor reliability - be warned!

Cooperman, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought my Sky Caddie SGX in September 2011 so it is just under 2 years old. The handset suddenly developed a fault where I could not switch it on or switch it off, once I had connected it to the computer. Sky Caddie Technical Support told me that it was probably a problem with the On/Off switch and that I would have to return my Sky Caddie.
