How many of you use GPS on the course?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

I have tried using my phone, but I am not a big can of having my phone in my pocket when I play, and it seems to slow me down.  I played the other day with a buddy who had a Golf Buddy, and it made me double think my thinking.  How many of you use one, and which one do you use?

I use a Skycaddie SG5, I swear by mine.

GPS is built into carts. Buddy has watch for those cart-path-only and walking days. I used to use Sky Caddie until they deleted all my courses and required an annual fee to use the product. Not just update it, but use it at all. I, along with many others, felt this was a real bait and switch or at least a unilateral change in our agreement. I will never buy from them again.

 

"I use a Skycaddie SG5, I swear by mine." I swear about mine.

I use a GPS watch and really like having it ready for immediate access...nothing in my pocket and don't have to go to the cart to retrieve it if I need a yardage.  I know some don;t like a watch but it doesn't bother me at all.  I only refer to it when I don't have a convenient yardage marker in the fairway.

I have the SkyCaddie GPS watch mid-season and think it's the ideal solution.  I have used a rangefinder, iPhone app, and SkyCaddie SGX, the watch is by far the most convenient.  I can take a few clubs with me and get the exact yardage I need without having to worry about laying my iPhone, rangefinder, or SGX down in the wet grass (I hate bulky things in my pockets when I golf).  Also the display is always on, no unlock screens or hitting buttons to wake up the device out of battery saver mode.

Garmin watch, just gives yardage to the middle of the green but that is all I need. I don't leave home without it.

Callaway UPro.

I get a LOT more use out of my rangefinder though......

Callaway Upro mx+.  Got it because it does not require a subscription.  It gives me yardages to the front, center and back of the green, as well as the ability to pick any spot on the course or green and get a yardage to there as well.  I've played with guys using the laser rangefinders and what I've found is, at my current skill level, the Upro gives me more than enough info to choose my club.

I have a Skycaddie SGX and I also have a cheap laser rangefinder.  I like the Skycaddie if I am playing a course that I rarely every play or have never played.  I like the fact I can get yardage to front,middle,back of the green and I can see a picture of the hole. But, for courses that I play all the time, I usually just use the rangefinder because I am already familiar with the distances and the size of the greens.  If I could only buy one, I would buy the GPS.  I had a Skycaddie for several years before I bought the rangefinder.  If it had not been so inexpensive, I probably would not have bought it at all.

I cant use one they screw me up. every time my buddy gave me a yardage it made me second guess my club selection. I do better with just a yardage marker

Yeah, I figured God would be pretty accurate with his yardages.

Unless, you had a little Nassau or side action on the game.

One never knows what information would be accurate when a Buck-a-roo is on the line...........
