    So far it has been quite easy although the screen is a bit small
    Pros:
    easy to set up
    Cons:
    Not very accurate especially for courses that have undergone upgrading, keeps on asking for manual changes etc plus the touch screen is not sensitive enough

    Worth it!!
    July 22, 2012
    Not a scratch golfer however really takes the guess work out of distance and judging hazards. Was also able to use my Golfbuddy in four provinces so far. Everytime I turned it on knew where I was and to proceed to the first hole. Very reliable, easy to navigate.Touch screen convenient. Fun for everyone golfing with me as well. Great buy!
    Pros:
    easy to use, input stats touch screen easy battery lasts at least 2 rounds scorecard nice
    Cons:
    screen back light could be brighter

    Terrific Unit With Plenty of Features
    June 25, 2012
    The Golf Buddy World Platinum is a terrific gps unit. It is simple to use, but is filled with features. The unit recognised my course (in Australia) as soon as I turned it on - no downloads necessary. It automatically updates as you play each hole without the need to advance the next hole manually.
    Pros:
    Easy to use and good value for money.
    Cons:
    Does not synch easily with Mac OS .

    Good GPS to have on the course, touchscreen could have been better, not meant for big fingers.. I have to use a pin to hit correct buttons on the screen.
    Pros:
    Easy to start, finds correct course.
    Cons:
    Touchscreen could have been better

    Great. Openned box charged it it turned it on and was away golfing. Local courses already loaded. Delivery from Rockbottom excellent.

    Cons:
    Need to invest a bit of time getting familar with more advanced features such as scoring module.

    works great
    April 21, 2012
    Very user friendly, all the coursesyou will most likely need are on it.. It finds the courses that are close to you and tells you how far they are.
    Pros:
    easy to use
    Cons:
    could be brighter in the sun. But you can see it OK

    This was one of the easiest units to use I have ever seen. Right out of the box at a local course and it knew exactly where I was and what hole I was on. I enjoy using this unit very much.
    Pros:
    Easy to Use

    I really like the new gps. Has worked great right from the very beginning. The only thing I wish it had a brighter image--I turned the brightness up but it is still alittle hard to see in the sunlight.
    Pros:
    Almost everything, It knows where you are playing and the course layout.
    Cons:
    needs to have a brighter screen....

    April 5, 2012
    A huge improvement compared to my old Sureshot. Being able to pin-point flag positions or how far do i need to hit this shot,to leave my favorite distance is brilliant. Looked at quite a few different GPS models out there and settled for this.I'm sure I made the right choice. No extra charges for uploads,40,000 course capability.Simply brilliant!!!
    Pros:
    Everything

    Top Shelf !
    April 3, 2012
    Opened the box and followed the quick start guide, charged, then updated the firmware and some courses, all without a hiccup. Took it to the course and it automatically recognized the course, gave very accurate information, changed holes on it's own and was an absolute treat to use. It provides all the useful information with respect to carry distances of hazards and bunkers etc. It not only helped me, it helped my playing partner as well. It's nice to take the guess work out of shot distances. Had it attached to the handle of my push cart and never had to wait for readings, just stop the cart, look and that's it. Battery life seems to be fine so far. Rockbottomgolf service, price and quick delivery only adds to the positive experience.
    Pros:
    Accuracy, simple to use, great data, easy to update firmware and courses, on-board rechargeable battery, no fees.
    Cons:
    None

    Totally Fantastic
    March 23, 2012
    Great for distances from 120 yds in, more accurate than estimates and pacing off yardage. The score module really helps to pinpoint tendecies (pulls and push T shots) and putting trends.
    Pros:
    Everything, especially the distances to trouble and over trouble.
    Cons:
    Works best with a golf T and not very good with your finger.

    Great Product
    March 22, 2012
    Right out of the box the GolfBuddy World Platinum GPS worked a treat. I am in Australia and was particularly impressed that all my local courses are available without me having to download them individually. The battery life is great and I get approx 3 rounds per charge. This product has improved my game by providing distance information that previously I had to estimate. Would definately recommend it to others.
