Summary: The device is excellent, and the big screen is perfect for a golf course where you dont have to squint at the device. It performs well, although a bit slow when entering scores. The main negatives are that it can only keep one person's score, which is ridiculously limiting and I cannot understand that at all.
Summary: I purchased the SGX after going away from a GPS to a laser for about 2 years. I like the flexibility of a GPS, and the course maps in my area are very good. I find the SGX to be spot on, in many cases more trustworthy than yardage markers on the course (specially when cutting off angles). However, the hardware/software side of this device leaves a lot to be desired.
Summary: I have used the SGX on several different courses, both in Southern & Northern Ca. This my second Sky Caddie rangefinder and even though it supplies more information, this SGX I find is somewhat slow loading up, finding your course, selecting the proper information as you request, and in the sun light the screen can be very difficult to see clearly without moving it around.
Summary: I have had this product for 19 months. I must admit the product was useful and gave accurate information but does come with a yearly subscription. There is a but here, it has just stopped working, it has stopped picking up satellites. Investigating on the web you quickly become aware that this is somewhat of a common theme. Skycaddy response was to charge me £90 for a refurbished unit with a 90 day warranty.
Summary: Okay, in context, I own several GPS units the latest are the Golf Buddy Platinum and my latest the Skycaddie SGX. In this review I am only going to compare the two as they are currently "state of the art" and both current in terms of "top models" from their respective manufactures. First Looks:- The SGX is thiner than the Golf Buddy and has a better resolution screen albeit a tad smaller graphics which means you need to zoom to get a usable screen.
Summary: The product seems very good although I have yet to use it 'live'. However it arrived without the instruction book and the mains adaptor so I will have to contact the seller once they re-open after the holidays. That made setting up much more difficult.
