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.
