    All I can say is, I just enjoyed my latest headache-free round with Arccos 360 today. It's getting better by every week with constant update.

    Played today and it appears to have settled down only missed 1 shot a drive on the 4th hole all putts registered and it worked perfectly



    Signs are good

    It seems they rushed the announcement and delivery dates to protect their market share and it's blown up in their faces. The upgrades were ambitious in both hardware and software so they clearly didn't given themselves enough time for alpha and beta testing which turned us all into paying beta testers.



    I doubt they are going out of business, they are backed by some pretty big pockets and until recently were really only fighting it out with Arccos. Maintaining market share will be tougher going forward with Garmin entering the market and Bushnell likely not far behind.

    I have been with GameGolf from the beginning. The Pro unit was a disappointment, worked with support for a month to get it to work, it would not tag any of the clubs, even after they send me a replacement model just to rule out diffectiveness.

    At the end I had to return the unit and go back to the older model with work just fine.

    Hopefully the fix the bugs on the product and release a better version of it.

    I pre-ordered, and I'm finally about to get mine... have to admit I'm afraid.

    14 Pings. Blueprints are incredibly good. Fetch is the most underrated putter on the market. Don't @ me.

    It should be fine it appears most of the initial errors have been fixed especially with the latest firm ware upgrades for the medallion and the sensors.

    Used it yesterday, on a course I rarely play and for the first time it did not miss a shot, including putts, and had no false reading so it appears to be through the worst of the issues, as long as you get all the upgrades before you start using.

    Trying to update the firmware on my medallion. After 30 minutes, it still shows progress at 0%. Anyone have this issue? How long should it take to update?

  • jjb67jjb67 Bixby, OKMembers Posts: 2

    Quick update, Game Golf support responded very quickly and had me reinstall the app. That took care of the issues I was having. Going to the course to actually try it out this afternoon!

    After having item in the box since mid Jan I opened it up tonight in the hopes of pairing everything for tomorrows round.
    Except none or the tags would pair (despite me getting close to the light bulb). Then round this thread and saw it really needs done outside. Will try it in the morning just hoping all of that plus the firmware fun doesn't take more than 90 minutes as that's all the time I have tomorrow and have already pissed away 2 hours on it tonight.

  • buckeyefan23buckeyefan23 Members Posts: 180 ✭✭

    Tried this morning outside but no luck. Maybe cause it's cloudy?

  • Dat_DudeDat_Dude Members Posts: 1,091 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Add one to the refund tally. I pre-ordered, was able to tag all but 2. They shipped 2 replacement tags (took about 3 weeks), and one of them doesn't work either. I have done this on sunny days and under bright LED lights. I emailed 2 weeks ago again asking for replacements but of course they still haven't shown up. I emailed customer service twice asking for a status and nobody responds.

    Then I tried to update the firmware on the tags which was successful on all but 2 or 3. It was a long winter but I have finally taken it out a couple times. First time it worked pretty well. Only a few missed shots. Now, the Driver and GW tags don't work at all.

    It is one thing to release a product not ready for use, it is another thing to ignore loyal customers and provide terrible customer service. I have owned every version of GG. No more.

    I got a new phone and had alot of trouble with getting the game golf device setup as it made me re-pair all of the tags.

    I had to hold up the tags to within a few inches of bright LED lights to get the pair to occur. Probably spend around 3 hours troubleshooting/getting this done which is ridiculous.

    I removed all of the old rounds off so I can start fresh. Am 2 rounds in and will see if the machine learning picks up and stops adding random putts and not including tee shots/other shots. For the 2 rounds completed I had to spend around 30-45 minutes fixing up the round on the computer but am told it gets better as the tags learn.

    I don't think it will ever get better for putting in terms of the strokes gained/insights as I don't think I will ever take the time to remember every putt and pin location so unless it automatically fixes that up I will disregard that stat. Anyone else who's device is working after a few rounds able to confirm this?

    All in all I would not recommend buying this product. While it may eventually be good for me the amount of time and negative user experience I have had with it I don't think I would ever recommend it.

    I am about 15 rounds in to the Game Golf Pro and it is working well now with very little editing of the round after completion though putting is the only real pain point. I find it either does register the put or it registers putts when I tap down a plug mark. But I am living with this. And no I do not thump the putter down when tapping the plug marks down.

    I found it took between 5 - 8 rounds for the machine learning to really kick in and it has been getting better every round after that.

    Thanks jg. appreciate you taking the time to provide that info. Good to know there is a light at the end of the long and painful tunnel ;x

  • North ButteNorth Butte Members Posts: 11,512 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    It sounds like Game Golf is recapitulating the entire 1st-generation history of Arccos Golf. Same troubles getting tags paired, same flaky app issues, same annual fee for the Caddie function. It's like each company has to make a first iteration that sucks for a couple years before coming out (one hopes) with one that is worth the bother to use.

  • GautamaGautama Members Posts: 802 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I've got about ten rounds with mine and for me anyway, I can only conclude that it simply doesn't work. The app constantly crashes, and every hole seems to have multiple missed shots and/or false records. There are entire missed holes on each round. The tags seem to work sporadically, for example today the driver would stop recording for five or six holes, then come back, then quit again. It requires so much babysitting that it's just not practical.

    I'm wondering if it's the platform maybe...I'm using android (Galaxy S9+). For those of you that are getting it to work, are you maybe on IOS?

    I have the original game golf too, and the more I play with the Pro, the more I realize the manual system might be better for me... If you can simply remember to tag. It works flawlessly. The pro requires so much hand holding it would be faster to just write stuff down. Maddening experience.

    The issues are certainly not platform specific. I am an IOS user and just could not get either the tagging to work or the in-round use. It is just an absolute terrible product that was released too soon.

    Although "too soon" was, what, about 18 months after it was initially supposed to be released? And two years after it was announced?

    Well I appear to be the exception and I am in Australia, Got the tags to work first time though it is very tedious, had some missed shot issues in the first 5 rounds but as the "Machine Learning" started to take effect it has been fine. Last round there was one missed shot and that was using a Hybrid as a putter from off the green and I will forgive that.
    So from my experience using it with iOS it has been good, but I will bow to greater volume which have had a terrible experience

    After my disaster with gamegolf pro, I recently bought Arccos and just have to say what a pleasure it was to use. Tags paired immediately and my first round worked flawlessly. The stats are meaningful and useful. Orders of magnitude better product than Gamegolf. If you are thinking about getting a tracking system, look no further than Arccos.

  • jg1166jg1166 Members Posts: 360 ✭✭✭✭

    How do you find having your phone in your pocket for the whole round? That was the one draw back I hd to going the arccos route. I am stil not having the problems you had with the gamegolf offering but I I had I would have probably jumped by now as well.

    Are you considering the arccos link device when they finally release it, if so drop a review on here so we can compare apples with apples

    I don't mind have my phone in my pocket one bit. I have always played with it my front pocket. I hated the GG thing that clipped to your belt. It always fell off or got tangled in my pull over. I'll look at the Arccos equivalent but I doubt I'll use it.

    The phone in my pocket, as stated, was thing that put me off, I am probably just strange but I don't like having much in my pockets when I play, divot tool a couple of tees and ball marker is all I have anything more just feels odd.

  • GautamaGautama Members Posts: 802 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Did anyone else get the email from the CEO last month outlining the new machine learning/manual tagging protocol? It also said those of us who'd pre-ordered it would get a complimentary unit mailed to us this month "to show our appreciation for all your feedback and patience." Curious if anyone has actually received their free unit? Not sure they could have made a worse PR move on the heels of all the other issues than telling the most frustrated users a new unit was on the way and then not following through, but it appears that's exactly what they've done. :/
