SG5 adjusts to handicap

 

The SG5 has a Digital Scoreboard that lets you input your handicap (the scorecard adjusts to your handicap). If you have an iPhone for example, you can use iHandicap, a great – simple to use app that will calculate your handicap using the USGA formula....

Don't buy the SkyCaddie

 

SkyCaddie is wonderful when it works. I have had extreme difficulty in using their tech support as they seem to want to answer a question you didn't ask. Also, my unit has had great difficulty in acquiring satellites. I have to do a GPS reset almost...

Good screen size and great yardage when it works

Bad tech support and costly to have repaired if needed

The SkyCaddie is a great unit. Small, light, easy to understand pictures of course information, long battery life, (rechargeable), gobs of course data, easy to read color screen. Screen brightness is a non-issue (excellent)

Not Impressed With the Company

 

After spending 2 days on hold with tech support for this thing and looking at other review & opinion sites this item was returned. There is a glitch in the software that makes it compatible with Windows XP with service pack 2. Yes you did hear me...

Cool looking expensive paper weight

Everything. If you use XP it won't sync with the website
