I have the Upro mx+ and got the same info about it.. I agree it sucks but the good news is, you will still be able to use it, you just won't be able to track stats or add new courses to it. I can live with that since I don't track stats with mine anyway. I just need to guesstimate what other courses I might want to add to mine and do it this year..
I personally like the YOUR GOLF app for keeping track of stats. It gives me FIR, GIR, GIR+1, putts, score analysis, stroke analysis, driving accuracy (including the percentage of fairways hit, and percentages of misses, both left and right), plus it has a scorecard feature which I like.
They will shot their website down at the end of next year, 2015 (not this year).
