GOLFBUDDY is a registered trademark of GolfzonDeca Inc. This is why I recommend AMAZON. Click Below to visit This includes course storage capacity of 20,000, dynamic green technology, digital scorecard and finally technology for target customization. GolfBuddy essentially comes as a range finder with superb features that make it among the most powerful GPS gadgets on offer today within the market. The enormous and user-friendly screen of this GPS tool provides precise measurements of distance to bunkers, greens, hazards, lakes and lay-up points. The information you target comes preloaded with the device featuring custom plotting technology that allows for including a maximum of 11 selected targets to each course, along with what GPS GolfBuddy offers. Manual operation and aiming in order to establish distance to green becomes unnecessary when using this gadget. It features preloaded courses covering both the US and Canada and has the ability to store a maximum of 20,000 courses out of over 30,000 worldwide ones. Expect the GPS Range Finder to deliver the details which you require at no extra cost after purchasing the unit. Each unit brings you true GPS functionality, having automatic recognition for both hole and course and features dynamic green view that changes shape of green as per the approach angle you employ. Target information comes preloaded as well and customizable target technology facilitates addition of 11 targets maximum per hole. Look forward to enjoying use of this range finder that utilizes revolutionary powerful technologies, straightforward application and a user-friendly LCD screen of high resolution. Apart from keeping scores with distinction, the device as well stores up details of the course in which you played and the date when this took place.

This particular feature proves to be quite handy in backing up handicap data. It also helps in back-tracking on scores of previous rounds, played on given dates at specified courses. This device’s Mark Feature helps you measure the distance of your shot by simply touching one button. You just require taking your shot from the current position, pushing Mark button found on your GolfBuddy’s side then travel towards where the ball lands. This action will then offer accurate assessment of the far you have hit the shot. These primarily give a course its character and present varying difficulty levels to different players. It thus helps to know where exactly the hazards are situated and how you can keep them from obstructing your play. Such action would help in eliminating strokes from play. This GPS rangefinder from GolfBuddy displays values of distance for each hazard experienced “in play”, along with variable aspects of terrain that affect course management along with shot selection. Layups and Carries help in knowing the location of any particular hazard and avoid it with sufficient effectiveness. Lay-up refers to the approach distance, whereas carry distance is the distance covered when passing the item. The device offers you all these values whenever in need of them. It is designed to furnish you with multiple information screens to keep you aware constantly of each distance. Without it, you would have a hard time sorting through thousands of pre-loaded courses before finding your golfing course in particular. Powering on the device automatically locates your course and hole, therefore swiftly bringing up information on yardage. Many users who left product reviews online were very impressed by this. This facilitates you to maintain mental focus on the game without facing the challenge of setting manually your unit while advancing towards the hole following up next.

Measurements of distance get updated automatically, making manual refreshing of the screen effortless while moving along a particular course. It facilitates the addition of lay-up points of your choice together with specified carry distances and comes as an addition to the targets which your unit already has programmed within. This function is served by the feature of Remaining Distance Display to Green.Golf Buddy Tour GPS Range Finder measures 4.25 by 2.25 by 1 inches and weighs 4.23 ounces with the battery included. Many users who bought this device were happy with the purchase so you’ll probably be happy too if you take the leap. Sitemap XML. GolfBuddy clearly put a premium on making the use of the device extremely simple. We also love that there are no additional fees associated with accessing golf courses on the device. Extremely strong course coverage is an added bonus. No software installation is required, and with courses pre-installed on the device, you don’t have to worry about loading courses from your computer. Details: “Wait a minute”, you might say, “why are there details on setup if all I have to do is turn the device on? “ Well, you may want to sync your GolfBuddy with a PC to upload a course that you have custom-mapped on your own, to download a course mapped by another user, or to update a course already on your device. If you opt to go down this road, you will need to register for a free web account, install desktop manager software on your PC, and sync your GolfBuddy Tour to the PC through a USB cable. What’s in the Box: The GolfBuddy Tour comes with the following: The designers put a premium on automating many processes and making the use of the controls intuitive. Navigating among different screen views is a breeze. The Bad: The joystick protrudes a bit, and frequently gets accidentally toggled while inside a pocket, advancing the device to random menus.

Also, it takes a bit to realize that one can actually scroll down on the menu page to access additional menu choices that aren’t initially visible. Details: Numbers and text were clear. Though the GolfBuddy Tour has a color screen, the device doesn’t take full advantage of it. If you would prefer not to keep it in your pocket, there is a belt clip provided (which may get in the way if you carry your bag). It would be nice if marked points were removed after they have been passed by the user, since players rarely hit the ball back toward the tee box. A chart comparing ease of use across different devices is available here. We note that adding these marked points is only useful for the next round you play on a course, something that matters if you travel to play a variety of courses and only get to play one round on each course. And don’t forget to save the targets after the round before powering off the GolfBuddy Tour, because if you forget, all of your work is gone. Details: The graphic of the green will rotate as the user’s position relative to the green changes, and quickly calculates the distance to the new front, middle and back of the green from that position. We did note that the response of the cursor when moving on the green view is a bit herky jerky. For example, with clusters of bunkers, the device was consistent in aggregating together the bunkers and relaying the distance to the first of the bunkers and the distance to carry the last of the bunkers. The Bad: The GolfBuddy Tour is about average in the set of features that it provides. (What can we say? Average can be both good and bad.) Details: The score for each hole can be entered during the round, and the GolfBuddy Tour will keep track the total relative to par. We found that entering scores and keeping track of overall progress was relatively simple, with an easy learning curve.

Sadly, for those who are statistics junkies, there is no option for additional information to be input, such as fairways hit, greens in regulation, sand saves, and the like. Nonetheless, the distance shown by the device was generally close to those shown by its competitors. Mapping Accuracy: Our on-course experience with the GolfBuddy Tour did raise concerns with respect to mapping accuracy. We had significant issues on one course with repeated inaccurate readings to marked “layup” points which quickly made us lose faith in the mapping for that course. Strangely, the readings to the front, middle and back of the greens as well as hazards were accurate, so it was limited to the “layup” points, but just a few wacky readings (and seeing your shot sail over the desired landing point and into a creek) is enough to make you think about just turning the device off. No additional annual fees or course download fees. We like it! Three-Year Total Cost of Ownership: With no additional annual fees or course download fees, the GolfBuddy Tour winds up being less expensive than a number of its competitors when it comes to the three-year total cost of ownership (which we feel is a much better indication of the actual cost to the user). Value: A reasonable cost for the device coupled with solid ease of use make the GolfBuddy Tour a device to consider. The is very fustrating to say the least.

CB 5.0 out of 5 stars The laser rangefinders are definitely appealing, but the form factor and having to dig a large item out of your bag when you need to get the pin distance was a major drawback. I also looked at a bunch of the new GPS systems, but many of them almost had too many functions and features - enough that I knew I would be distracted during my golf round. Really, all I want is a good, reliable, accurate distance to the pin. This product is it. I bought this a week ago on Amazon and have tested it at several golf courses -- a few I was unfamiliar with and my home course where I am already dialed into the distances from playing the course several hundred times. This item is very accurate. After I bought it, I was obsessively checking the distance and comparing it with markings on the course. It always matched the plaques or sprinkler head covers of all three courses I ran this on. On one round, I was with someone using a laser and on another round I was with someone using a SkyCaddie. This item matched both each time. But the biggest plus to this product is the form factor. You can easily clip this onto the side of your hat or your belt and forget it is there.

Need the distance to the pin - simple: press the button and it tells you. Need the distance to the front or back of the green - press the button again for three seconds and it tells you. It is very easy to hear, yet is quiet enough that it will not disturb your playing partners - in fact when the volume is turned down halfway, I doubt a playing partner five feet from you could hear it at all. If you don't want the voice, you can just peek down at your belt and see the distance in big numbers on the display, which update in real-time as you walk. This item has two other features. One is where it will show you the actual shape of the green, and rotates that shape depending on your approach angle. I never really used this, because the graphical interface is simplistic, and I really only needed the distance to the pin. The second feature is very nice -- it will record the distance between any two points. So say you want to know how far you hit your six-iron. You press a small button on the side, then the main button. Then you hit the ball and walk to it. When you get there, you press the main button again and it will tell you how far you hit the ball. I suppose you could just as easily look down before and after you hit and then do a little math, but I still found this feature to be a big bonus. I am already pretty dialed into my club distances, but if you are not exactly sure how far you are hitting each club, this was a nice feature to have. The first round I played with it was a five-hour round, and I obsessively hit the button as I played to test it out. I still had half the battery life left, so I believe this could easily last two full rounds, especially since under normal conditions I wouldn't be activating it every single time I saw a yardage marker for comparison. This product is small, the clip is strong so you won't lose it, and it just plain works with an unobtrusive form factor that makes it a huge bonus.

The voice is a computer-sounding female voice not unlike Siri on an iPhone. It is really great. I love it. PS - when you get it, it comes with a micro-USB cord. You should go to the GolfBuddy website and make sure you have downloaded the latest firmware version. Mine needed an update, but installing it took only a few minutes and clicks on my Mac. UPDATE: NOVEMBER 2015 -- Well, I have played about 300 rounds with the Golf Buddy, and it finally died. But to update my old review, I can say that I played with this device all over the United States and the distances were always accurate.They will not return my emails and the phone number they gave me in their correspondence is answer only.It will not charge anymore. This company does not make it easy to replace a defective item. After being on the phone with them for about 15 minutes, answering all kinds of stupid questions about my problem, I was sent an e mail, thinking it would be an RA number and address to return it to for a replacement. Well I was wrong. I still have to answer all kinds of questions, send original invoice, (hard to do, purchased from Amazon) and maybe then they will send me return info. There was no mention of replacement. They will receive the item and let me know!!!! When an item is defective, after only 3 weeks, only being used about 5 times, they should just provide a new one. I read this same problem happened to another customer, but purchased it anyway. Amazon should stop dealing with this company. They are trying not to replace a defective item after only a short while. It has a 90 day warranty which they are not honoring. Bad company for Amazon to represent.This was pretty spot on to the green center for the entire round. Which is all I was looking for. For less than a 3rd of some of the laser hand held units.Just show up. power on and play. It seems one of the biggest complaints I have ever heard while golfing is a courses lack of yardage markers. It happens all the time.

I simply got to my ball.I highly recommend this. Very price friendly and works as advertised.We have 2 that have broken apart when the club head made contact with the ball during a drive. The first broke after 6 months, at the charging port, so use and repairs were impossible. After a long and ugly battle with the company, we paid a partial fee and received a replacement under the warranty. The second unit lasted 7 months. It broke across the back, but at this point will still charge. We will continue to use it in its crippled state unti it quits since GolfBuddy says they have no responsibility. If you buy the voice, don't use the wrist band, and don't count on the company for friendly support. The Voice does exactly as promised.It is easy to use. The voice messages provides the best information. The screen is of limited used. A bit difficult to place the buddy except for on the hat. If I would have spent some more money I should have gone for a watch instead.No problems with the battery yet. It lasts for more than one round of golf atleast.Charge lasts 2 games. I clip it on my cap, not perfect but OK. My old range finder sopped finding a number of courses, this one seems fine, Have also bought one for my wife and she is very happy with it as well recommending to friends who have purchased one, all satisfied.Weil es unpraktisch ist jedes Mal die Brille herauszukommen, hat sie die Uhr nicht benutzt.It is very accurate within a yard or two. Has picked up every course I have gone to and I have been in several states and provinces golfing. It gives me exactly what I need the distance from me to the hole and the green size and pin placement. I would recommend to allLike that it is simple to operate.In order to navigate out of this carousel please use your heading shortcut key to navigate to the next or previous heading.
