Had nothing but problems with the Upro and support (if you can call it that) was useless. I bought a garmin and love it.

I've had one for a couple of years now.  In the beginning support was awful and loaded courses was a pain.  Now it's a little, very little, better.  But it is very unreliable.  It will just shut down for no reason mid round.  I have to pull the battery and restart it.  When it works it works well but it pisses me off often.  I carry my rangefinder as a back up but still prefer GPS. Would not buy from calloway again.

Mine usually works, although I periodically get a golf [i]hole[/i] where the numbers are clearly off - maybe the green moved or something? Two weeks ago, I was just outside of a 100-marked sprinkler and my uPro said I was 65 yards from the center. No way was I. Complaints: * I can't load courses via WINE (or any other Windows emulator in Linux/Ubuntu), despite a company rep saying I'd be able to before I bought it. As a result, I have an old Windows machine that I keep around and plug in when I need to load another course. * Battery life - can't really play 36 in a day with it. If I charge it to full, it plays 18 easily though * Hazard marking is kind of weird. * Time is off each time. Seems to always start up at 11:38.

I've had mine for almost a year.   Occasionally, it will not want to start up and I will have to take the battery out and reinstall.   Other than that, I have had no complaint with it and it seems to be very accurate compared to a buddy's laser rangefinder.

I have not tried to update a course though, other than the sync updates it does when I plug it in to my computer.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      On Craigslist around Phoenix we used to see loads of irons in the early part season because people would buy clubs they can't hit *cough* blades *cough*, or just clubs that weren't fitted or they didn't like and then sell them. That's how I got my nikes before they were stolen.   I don't buy into the new distance drivers and such, but the forgiveness is definitely a major improvement. I take my old Wooden Woods to the range every once in a while and not only do misfits cause massive distance loss, they just fly horrible as well. The new stuff is definitely helpful to worse players but if Ben hogan could drive a wooden club over 300 then why is it so impressive to driver a super forgiving driver over 300? idk, just my $0.02
    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.
