You probably play the same course frequently, too. I do it a few minutes before.

Today at Mid-Pines it took about two minutes. But at Mid-South (after we played Talamore in the morning), it took literally 15 seconds.

If you change areas, it has to do more work. But that's why I said the first thing.

I also didn't load anything on my phone when I traveled. Not that you had to with GAME Golf, either. And with GG you only got blinking lights to let you know if you were on the course and GPS locked. This at least tells you on the screen.

I've gotten where I turn it on when I start warming up or even sometimes as I arrive at the course. The battery life is good enough that I don't worry about it running out of juice. Like I said not really a big deal, it just took some getting used to, because I normally just turned them on as I arrived at the tee box.

Game Golf wouldn’t get the GPS right away if I turned it on at the tee box, either. So I guess I’m just saying I’m used to it. I turn all my GPS devices on a few minutes before I get to the box.

This is what I do.   I have a Phantom and the H4.   When I get out of the car, I turn on both devices and I've never had an issue.    I've played 10 different course w/o incident.   Although today, because I was rushing out to play a round from Golfnow, I left the H4 at home!

Mine arrived today. The extra 15 percent off was a nice perk. The delivery time didn't seem to bad. Now I'm anxious to get out there and play.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I also never got an email with tracking info.  I went to my mailbox today on a whim (I almost never go unless I'm out walking anyway, as it's mostly junk mail, and it's a block away) and it was there.

I'm playing tomorrow, so I won't be installing it until afterward.  Maybe I should take it as a GPS anyway.

I ordered Jun 30 and got an email July 4 saying it was accepted and processed for shipping.

The box is smaller than I thought it would be.

You inspired me to go down to my mailbox on the ground floor of my apartment building and guess what I found

So I plug it in (to charge) and the screen immediately says to connect to app.  

I am not super fond of the charger, but I hope there's a good reason for it.  It's certainly better than the piece of my GG that broke off after a year that I kept on via tape.

Maybe it’s because you don’t have any data?

It's likely so that the device can remain waterproof. That's probably also a big reason why they didn't add a little speaker for any audible clicks or beeps or something. (Because those things are pretty inexpensive.)

Almost surely.

Also got mine, was waiting in the mailbox when we got home from vacation yesterday.  Spent the night setting things up, hopefully will have a chance to test things out soon.

I joined the leaderboard as well, and also can't see anything on the mobile app, so I'm assuming it's because I haven't played yet.

I just finished screwing all the tags into each of my clubs and setting up the My Bag section...just to make sure I'm not missing something silly, there isn't any step to actually sync each tag to the device right?  When I actually get onto the course, the tags are already synced and ready to go?

    • My first 9 holes of the year... 56 with about 6 lost balls.  Didn't feel I drove it very bad,  nor did I chip or putt bad for the first rd in over a year.  But I just can't keep balls in play. Every single errant tee shot or approach shot is an instant lost ball.  I expected to take some time getting my game back,  but in the 7 rds I've played in the last 29 years, I don't think I've broken 100. Safe to say that I simply cannot play this game.       
    • Yeah, if it is quantified to begin with. I guess they could make up an algorithm but seems like it would require a massive effort of data collection to verify which is how SG were assigned to begin with IIRC. It is also entirely possible they might say it is not significant enough to warrant an adjustment for ams.
    • I've realized I just can't play anymore, so no need to really spend time or money on equipment or practicing.  I'll be stuck at shooting around 50-55 for 9 and about 102-110 for 18. No sense in putting any energy or effort into a game when I can shoot awful scores on no practice just as easily.     
    • ‘Shank’ is my stock shot. I do need to get my distances dialed in on them though.
    • They’re using a lot of words that are from foreign languages lately too.
