Anyone here using the SkyTrak launch monitor?

I'm contemplating getting one for the winter season to use at my indoor driving range. The range facilities does not have wifi so I'm wondering if I can use my iphone as a hotspot to connect the SkyTrak and an ipad to the internet? (I want to use an ipad as well just cause it has a bigger screen than the phone).

Thankful for any tips.

You can of course use the phone for the WiFi.  However, a broadband WiFi is generally better in terms of speed and you may face a limit on how much internet you can use on the phone depending on your package.

My suggestion would be to try the setup you mentioned and see if it works well enough for what you need

Speed and GB limit is not an issue. The reason I’m asking is that the common setup seems to be to connect the Skytrak to WiFi and then connect your tablet/computer etc. directly to the skytrak. I would like to hear from someone who has actually tried this before I spend 2000+.

I've done it. I'm not sure what the question is, but I wouldn't recommend using your phone as the WiFi hotspot.

Visit that URL (the image is a link) and read about it. It works fine. The SkyTrak and the iPad or computer connect to each other via your home Internet.

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
