Sky Caddy GPS


Recommended Posts

 

 

The Next Generation Rangefinder

Makes all other rangefinders obsolete!

 

Using a powerful microprocessor, GPS, and satellite-based accuracy enhancement technology, the SkyCaddie automatically calculates, as you move, distances to up to forty targets per hole simultaneously in less than a second. You will already have your number when you get to your ball.

 

* No aiming, no missing. You don't need a clear line of sight or reflective target with the SkyCaddie. Because the targets are pre-programmed, the SkyCaddie eliminates the need to aim through a lens, accidentally hitting the wrong target on a hole, or trying to hit a pin with a laser beam at 200 yards.

* More time to focus on your game. Since distances are automatic with the SkyCaddie, you can quickly select the right club and think only about your swing.

* Avoid hidden trouble. Get accurate measurements over hills, trees, and obstructions to any target. Play confidently and knock strokes off your game.

* Measures the distance of your shots. Learn how far you hit your drive, 5-iron, 9-iron, or wedge with a touch of a button.

* Use it on any golf course. With a SkyPlayer membership, you can choose from thousands of available SkyCourses from our website to download to your SkyCaddie. Or you can record the front, center, and back of each green on the courses you play using the built-in SkyCourse Setup module.

* Simple, powerful and totally portable. Just let the SkyCaddie see the sky, and it'll do all the yard work for you! Plus, at a mere 4.8 ounces, it goes anywhere you go. Now your game can measure up, just like the SkyCaddie!

* Conforms to USGA/R&A Ruling. The SkyCaddie conforms with current USGA/R&A ruling, so you can use your SkyCaddie with confidence!

I bought an SG2 back in December 2006 as a Xmas gift to myself. I've used the unit 6-7 times with moderate success. Recently, I've been getting bogus yardages on a few holes. Turns out my 4-month old battery refuses to charge up more than 25% of capacity. Now I'm being told I have to buy a replacement battery for $49.95 after spending $300 for the unit and another $30 for annual membership. WTF? Maybe that's why Skygolf newer units have double AA batteries. I should have got the Bushnell Rangefinder!!

 

right on da golf guy.. I'm getting a few bogus numbers as well.. sometimes out at least 10 metres or so at times.. I feel that I have to re measure the greens at my local quite often..I'm disappointed in mine to say the least..Now I'm findng the battery is not up to 18 holes.. its a sealed unit so OUch!!!

Have used my SG3 for three months now and absolutely love it. One of my regular playing partners has a Bushnell, and the only time we use is when we have a long wait on a tee box and start taking bets on how far it is to a certain tree, landmark, Cart Girl, etc... All of the courses I play are professionally mapped and have been spot on. The feature that I have been most impressed with is the ability to mark a spot (i.e where you tee off) and then see how far your shot actually traveled. This has been a tremendous help to my game, as I now know exactly how far I hit each club (although is a bit sobering when you think you got into a drive for 300 and find out it is only 285).

I bought a SG2 used of Golf wrx and find it gives the same yardages as my brothers SG4 +/- 2 yards. It has been fantastic and I have just got a new SG5 as a gift. Going to sell the SG2 once I try the SG5 and see it is much better. The only draw back with any of the sky caddie products is that you have to pay a yearly membership fee. That sucks in my opinion. The Igolf although not as good does not have this extra annual fee.

I agree that paying sucks but I have to pay each year at my course for a new membership so whats the diff? I have had two SG2's and never had to replace a battery, now have the SG5 and love it too! I mean FREE is me but there are some things in life we have to pay for and unless you quit using it or they have a one time price we are stuck with sub. I guess we could back up and walk off all the distances?! NO WAY! most people take too long to play the way it is, I think the SC speeds up play especailly if you are playing a course for the first time. not trying to PO anyone but if you don't like paying the sub fee don't buy it......We will pay $200 for a new putter but qripe about $30 for a yearly sub fee. Am I way off base here?

Thanks and enjoy your next round!
