post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ordered mine saturday so should be here tomorrow

 

Got bored of using the gps app on my phone and it killing the battery, and being in-accurate

 

cant wait to get it,...dosnt come with batteries so gotta figure out what ones it takes haha, i think a cr2032, but cant be sure

 

will put up a review once i get it, but wont get it on the course until next wednesday

Well got this yesterday and tried it out down the range, worked straight out the box with the battery that was provided, locks onto the pin very quickly, usually within 3 seconds,...i found scanning across the pin back and forth to be the quickest/most accuracte way

 

build quality is what i expected for a brand new £115 unit,...nothing like the bushnells ive used, but it does what it says on the tin, small, light, hardy

 

ratings

Cost: 10/10

Build Quality: 6/10

Functionality: 8/10

Aesthetics: 8/10

Accuracy: 9/10

Overall: 8/10

 

if the build quality and aesthetics where better this device could easily keep up with models three times it price, but for what you pay its a damn good bit of kit

Nice, I am considering getting a GPS, but I am not really sure on how often I would use it

i found myself using the gps app on my phone all the time, knowing my exact yardage has really helped my game, the only issues i had with it where

 

1) sometiems dodgy satellite signal

2) phone battery life

3) having to download courses

4) sun glare on the screen

 

witht he rangefinder i shouldnt have any of the above issues,
