I suspect that in 2 years time the device would have morphed in to something else.

I own one of these and while I admit that it is firmly in the luxury/fun gadget end of the golf bag, they have started to put some useful features in and i think this sort of technology is certainly interesting for those who like to analyse their game. There is a thread with some info, I've put a short review with a couple of screenshots in this thread

My issue with this is that you need to spend so much time after the round correcting the data. For instance, you need to remember the times you used your putter but weren't on the green, the bunker shots, penalties, etc. The concept sounds great, and if they figured out a way to limit the post-round data correction I'd be in.

I think it's pretty slick.  Does it give you some time of indication that it recognized the club tap?

I agree with this to a degree, and i can't see the accuracy of on course gps being able to do that kind of accuracy in the next few years. It really is a tool for those who enjoy stats and don't mind tinkering after a round. If you find that a bore and irritant then this is not for you. As a guideline, it takes me around 10 mins to update my round and post the final details on getting home.

You get a vibration much like a mobile phone as well as a quiet beep. None of my playing partners have mentioned ever hearing this beep.
