  1. HTH does not have the nice shot by shot graphics like the Garmin watches can do on course. You can use a variety of screen recording apps (depending on your OS) to capture HTH. Combine with another device recording you swinging if you want to have a really nice video.
  2. I haven't seen distance not compute. Maybe it couldn't get a good launch angle for some reason? I'd try and move it around. Into a net if it can't get club data it will show 0 sidespin and you won't have path/face/attack but it usually still shows me distance.
  3. I don't think there's a maximum we know of... There's some longer hitters on YouTube with it showing ball speeds of 170 mph+ and I think higher swing speeds. I've had some speeds past 107 as well. One note on club speed is it's reading low a lot of times right now so you could be getting more than 107 mph but not know it. Look at the ball speed. It sucks because you can't do swing speed training where you're not necessarily concerned about the quality of the strike but if you get a good one and divide by your usual smash factor (1.44 or so is a good start if you don't know) you can approximate club speed.
  4. People are pushing for it on Garmin's forum but I really don't think it will come officially from Garmin. This type of thing undercuts some of the incentive to buy HTH or e6. The developers have stated GS Pro has an open API so I think the best hope is someone reverse engineers how the R10 sends the data to the phone and writes a bridge to get the data required to GS Pro.
  5. If you can get your hands on a PRGR or something to compare actually in your garage to, that might be best. It could be set up or interference but as others have pointed out, ball speed on this unit is really good even indoors. I had driver carries of 220 when I started and I'm up to 260-270 now as I've built confidence swinging indoors. There are others experiencing interference or other issues but the subconscious can be really powerful even when you're trying to really give it.
  6. Ultimately any launch monitorb that's capable of left/right has an alignment or calibration to identify the target line. The problem with the R10 is there is no camera to help you and also the red line on top can be a bit small. It's like aiming a gun with only the front sight. I've been able to get it pretty close eyeballing it so the final checks are really just to see if minor adjustment is needed.
  7. You can wake the device up by hitting the button on the back. Sometimes when you enter driving range it doesn't automatically wake up (as you experience) but you don't have to kill the app until it does.
  8. The unit is so easy to set up and pair as long as your range has a level surface behind you to put it on that's approximately at the elevation of the mat. The unit pairs almost instantly to the last device it was connected to. All I do is pace out my 6 feet behind, drop the unit down, turn it on and start the app and hit 2 or 3 wedge shots to verify alignment. I don't bother with lasers, levels etc. but my range has a flat paved surface behind the stalls.
  9. Sometimes there's misreads on certain metrics. If it couldn't get a club speed it can't calculate smash factor. I wouldn't trust smash factor right now anyway because club speed is bugged. If your distances were off outdoors I'd definitely check level (front to back particularly) as that will impact launch angle. Also, remember ball speeds will be down with range balls so distances compared to course will be a bit iffy. I also find roll factor to be quite conservative on the R10. Good luck!
  10. I think the roll factor is pretty conservative for driver. I'm in the same boat as you where my carry feels mostly right but total yardage can be a bit short. I notice my drives have about 15-20 yards of roll and I think a lot of mine roll out more than that. On the course I do measure some out to 270-280 and on the R10 they're carrying the 250-260 or so they should but then the roll is just leaving them a little shorter when playing Home Tee Hero.
  11. Awesome! I did not realize there was a request export on the Garmin site. I'm quite familiar with Python and Pandas so thank you for this!
  12. Outdoors I have found it very comparable to a FlightScope Range unit except something is currently wrong with club speed. Ball speed, launch angle and direction are all great matches. Carry is within the 10% you want. Indoors or into a net I think this holds true for irons. Driver may be 10-15 yards short in these circumstances. An update was supposed to improve this and some people did report improvements. Mine are more or less still similar but it's in an acceptable spot by my standards. Posted this before but here's the FlightScope Range vs. R10 data outdoors. You can see the club speed issue and backspin too low with wedges but outside club speed and spin everything else is very good.
  13. Spin at the range has been weird for me too. I don't know if it's range balls and mats but I get really low spin on irons and wedges outdoors at the range (like 4000 spin on wedges) and then I come home and hit into my net (still off a mat but at least with a quality ball) and the spin is way better.
  14. Same. I do think spin is a little better? Driver might be down a hair and I get fewer shots where the side spin doesn't work at all and you get a 0 for side spin.
  15. This would be amazing. Additionally, Garmin now syncs your range sessions on the app (including video) across multiple devices so it is being stored in the cloud somehow. Just no way to download or view it.
