Garmin Z80 problems

The range finder shuts down occasionally, anyone have this problem?

Also, the laser doesn't seem to catch the pin distance correctly....

80% of the time its the same as my bushnell but 20% of the time its off...

    I have not had the distance problem (unless I hit the trees behind the hole) but I had the issue during my first round where it shut off 3 times. I updated the software to the latest version and all I had to do is press the range button to wake it up a couple times the last round of golf I played. However it woke up quickly.

    Yes, same problems... however if it just goes to sleep it wakes up quickly. But if I don't use it for a couple holes it has completely shutdown on me and needed to go through the complete bootup. I also find that the flag finder is not the greatest, but a quick glance at the green front/back distances let's me know if I didn't get the flag accurately.

    I feel like Ive been conned into getting this very expensive piece of equipment.



    I can't trust it to the exact yardage... isn't that the whole point of getting a range finder in the first place?
