I won an auction for one on Monday. They shipped it that day, and it should arrive this Friday by UPS ground.
When I spoke to them for payment and shipping details I was told that the Ebay auctions were considered a form of advertising for them.
I currently have a Sky Caddie SG-5, which I am pleased with, and recently gave the Upro a try, but returned it after a few sessions. I didn't like the display outdoors, and a fully charged battery only lasted 9 holes among other things. That little trial cost me a restocking fee, and the loss of my course subsciption, total = $120.00. So, those of you who are pissed you didn't get your shipping costs back, I have little sympathy.
I'll try and give a side by side comparison of the SG-5 and the Guru as soon as it arrives and I can get some course time in on it. I also have requested 2 local courses to be mapped that are not currently on the list.
For the record, I am a gadget junkie, and will also probably buy the next "Latest & Greatest" golf GPS also.

I tried to update my software using the current utility, but it states my version (1.14) is current. What's the procedure to load the updates?
Never mind, I found it under "Download Utility".

Regarding the Upro display, I had the brightness on high, and was trying to keep the display visible so I could compare it to the SG-5 during my round.
I took the Guru out today to run side by side with the SG-5, and got in a very long 9 holes. I was a single behind a 4some at the end of some little tournament, and I replayed at least 4-5 holes, and was playing 2 balls, so I did about 27 holes total.
Sometimes the measurements were exactly the same, sometimes there was about 5-6 yards difference between the two units. I'll need to try a few more courses to render some sort of opinion. I do like the display on the SG-5 under all conditions better than the Guru, but that's to be expected due to the backlight and color screen.

Once we update to the new version do we have to download the courses again, and will we loose any targets or greens that have been modified for downloaded courses? Also did they give us the ability of scoring for more than 1 player? I'm a little leary of updateing untill we know what the benifits of updateing are.

Can anyone with version 1.18 verify that they can add a new green to an existing course?

If you shut off afterwards than you are screwed. It doesn't save the info once shutting down.
