Every bit as good as my skycaddie
July 14, 2013
Hello, I won one of these at a golf tournament and have to admit that I am quite impressed. I have been an avid sky caddie user for years and own an SGX. Feature wise they are very similar with the edge going to Golfbuddy because you don't have to keep downloading courses. The scoring module works great, side by side the distance measurements with skycaddie have never been more than a yard different. No annual subscription also tips the scales. The only negative is that it is a little slow to switch holes and gets confused on tight courses but if you set it to sequential holes it solves this problem. All in both are very impressive and will help your game. I would highly recommend the GolfBuddy World Platinum II GPS. As a matter of fact I will be ordering one for a good friend of mine.
Pros:battery life, pre loaded courses, size, features
Cons:YOU must read the instructions and set it up properly then there are no dislikes.
