Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Hi guys & gals<br />
<br />
Well here is an issue I'm hoping someone has had before and could help out with.<br />
<br />
So last week I played a course and noticed that that distances were way out on my watch so before I played it again today I decided to update on my mac laptop. So when this took place I kept getting an error to try another usb port so I did then it told me not to remove cable whIle sync was in progress which I wasn't, after a while I gave up and went to the course.<br />
<br />
I started the watch put it in golf mode and low be hold I got a message saying no local courses found it had wiped them all from my watch!!!<br />
<br />
Does anyone know how to fix this??<br />
<br />
Thanks guys

    You might get lucky and find someone here who has had the same experience but sounds like a fairly unique problem. It's the first I've heard of anything like it happening. Why don't you just call Bushnell's technical support? They are much more likely to be able to help you out with this type of problem.

    Contact Bushnell they will help you. When I got the XS I sent them an email about updating the firmware.and they replied that there was no updates needed. The updating of the XS was when you found a course that was not in it, or an error in a course and they would have to be contacted to setup the correction and the update for you.<br />
    Good Luck<br />
    I have had no problems with thankfully so far

    As others have said, call Bushnell. They will help you and make it right. <br />

    If the course has been reconfigured recently it may need to be remapped first before loading an update. They are very responsive and fast with mapping updates.

    The problem here is I live in New Zealand and there is no New Zealand number to call.<br />
    <br />
    I have sent a email but it could be a few days before I hear back I was just hoping someone may have struck this before. This is my 3rd bushnell watch that I've had issues with.<br />

    I have read all these things online about issues with bushnell operating on apple product also

    I have a NEO XS and have had no issues, except sometimes hazards do not show up. But this is the information from the course, not the watch.
