Re: GPS vs Laser Range finder
- Software+dongle for windows mobile phone with blue tooth: Allows you to cheaply add software+$60 gps dongle and have full GPS on your phone.
- Layup planning on some software
- Additional features, scorecard, stats, bets
- Looses signal
- Cost of maps can be $$$ depending on software
- Not quite as accurate
- Dedicated units feature locked.
As far as range finder, I have now played a few rounds with people in the group who have one so I have a little more experience.
- Accuracy inside 180 yards
- Ease of use
- Nice to scope hot chicks.
- Line of site needed
- Distance limited
In the final picture I find I don't want to carry either. Inside of 150 yards with direct line of site the range finder is quite nice. Out of the fairway on a blind par 5, trying to figure out what will give you 150 in to the pin safely the gps is better. Guessing works pretty good too.
