Silicone, boys. It’s not just for bathrooms and bimbos anymore.

Gonna close this topic and direct everyone over here instead: Thank you!

Glad to hear.  I know this is odd, but I really want them to succeed so I can continue to use my current tracker.  I know I could buy something new from someone else, but this has worked for me for ne

I have never been able to reset my live device using the button next to the micro usb port.

You have to do something regarding holding down the power button, pressing and holding the paper clip hole, etc.

I tried Googling for the procedure, but I haven't found it.

Is there a way to do it with the reset button hole? I tried a few sequences and nothing seemed to work.

Had to finally do it with the app on the computer.

I don’t know about the reset button. I just do it from the app. 

A lot of routers and other devices are factory reset by pushing a paper clip in the hole and holding for 5 seconds after powering up.

Guess I have been lucky.  Been using GameGolf Classic since Spring 2015 and never a problem, never had to reset or anything.  Just the recent problems with the server being down.  Of course this is the most basic version so less to go wrong with it I guess.

Played a round yesterday and today - both times uploaded from the device with no issue.

GG Live has been pointess for a couple of years now I'd say.  I sync the app with the device every time I play, but at some point during the front 9, the app stops registering my shots when I tag the device and shows a partial round that's unsigned.  Waste of money.

I also had the part of the clip that is supposed to be on the belt break while playing today and at this point I'm wondering since it appears they're in the hole whether they'll be able to do anything for me.

Fortunately, my son helped my download all 300 rounds I have on it so I can write some sort of analytics routine to extract the data.

I'm curious how he did that and did it download as an Excel file?

I downloaded all my resulting insights and conclusions via 53 screenshots. Would be very interested as to how to download all the data and if it would somehow show shots short right, etc.

Mine lasts about eight hours still.

I just upload the round at the end though.

What do you mean it lasts 8 hours?

I'll sync it with the device and it'll shot me on the app when I tag the device but then, for example, on hole 7, it will no longer show on the app when I tag the device and the app will register that I've only played 6 holes.

My live device has behaved this way on Android devices since day one. I only use the app to upload my rounds.

I've not used the app.  I usually don't have any problems uploading a full round via my PC if their site is up and running.   I highly recommend uploading your round to your computer.

I'm with you.  Also, I am a little obsolete and still use the "Classic".  Just tag on the course and upload to PC when I get home.  As long as the servers are up I never have a problem.  I've tried their app on the course but find the more I need to do, other than swing the club, the worse I play.  I like with the Classic that I just tag and move on.

Yup, for me, there's no difference between the Classic and the Live because the app just stops syncing.  So, like I said, buying Live was a waste of money for me.  Somewhat sucks because when I really tag a tee shot, I like to know instantaneously how far it went, haha.

I have not problem with that, All of my drives are 275+ yards, even though the PC says otherwise once I upload the round later in the day. I just do not understand how it gets so many of my drives wrong, and always on the "Short" side.

The battery lasts eight hours and I can tag the whole time.

I recommend just tagging on the course. You can upload via your phone later. That’s the difference for me. Classic doesn’t have Bluetooth.

Tag on the app rather than using the device and not sync it before the round starts?

No, tag on the device on your belt, not the "App".  The original "Classic" did not have Bluetooth and was just the GPS unit that clipped on your belt.  It would not sync to a phone and there was no need to sync the course prior to the round.  Just turn it on and golf, touching each club to the device on your belt before each shot.  It matches the GPS location with a course when uploaded through a PC.  There is zero on course information provided, it just captures the data for later.

No, tag using the device.

This is what I used to do:

Get to the course. turn the device on in the parking lot to make sure it had enough time to connect to GPS, by the time I got to the 1st tee it was ready. Tag all my shots during the round. When I got home, upload to computer, or if I was on a trip and didnt have my computer, upload using the app. I never used the app for tagging or anything else when I was at the course.

    • Wrapped up another great trip to Erie, which means as usual I have a lot of homework to do. There's a lot of stuff (unsurprisingly) that @iacas has told me in the past that I'm still struggling with, like needing to be more calm and focused before every shot. Bear in mind if you do read this that these are my feels. Putting Erik checked my aim fairly early on. I do have an Edel putter, so the aim wasn't too bad. It was simply twisted slightly open at address. We also moved the ball back about half a ball and shifted my posture a little upright to get my eyes inside the ball. We did make a mechanical change to my stroke, as I swung the putter with my chest, essentially rotating my trunk around. Erik showed me how to swing the putter by keeping my sternum relatively still and letting my arms swing more around my body. The biggest change we implemented is putting with a purpose. As in, I wasn't really doing it. There were times on the course where my distance control was great and others when it was absolutely atrocious, with no real explanation. We figured out that I was basically spaced out and not really putting, just hitting the ball basically. We worked on some preshot stuff to feel the distance and for me to envision the hole as I make my stroke, to keep the target in focus the entire time. Short Game Mostly stuff I've already been taught. Softer arms in pitching, trust the pivot. I tend to use my arms too much and when I quiet them down, I don't allow myself to pivot fast enough because I'm worried I'll hit the ball too far so I end up hitting everything short. Trust the pivot. Chipping is less wrist hinge, butt of club stays pointing to my belly button. Need to be more calm before the shot. I also need to learn to use different clubs to vary trajectory. Full Swing I'll write this in a separate post. It's getting late and I don't want to do this section injustice by writing something up quickly.
