    frustrating
    July 29, 2012
    I've never owned a GPS device. Saw this device on your website, did some research and read the reviews . So I excitingly bought it. I thought something this simple would easily work and have fewer possible glitches or problems. I was wrong on that note. I loaded my fav 10 courses and went out to play. It nevered worked. Wouldn't find a satellite and just powered down after trying each time. Called Izzo and they helped me reset it and try again. Same thing! I sent it back to them and am waiting for a new replacement. I'm hoping this was just a lemon and not a symptom of being an affordable gps unit. Very let down so far.
    Cons:
    Didn't capture a satellite

    Pros:
    easy to set up simple to use had all my courses available Price
    Cons:
    nothing

    Hey John- I apologize for the issues you've had with the GPS device and have updated my description accordingly. I asked one of the Cave Crew to reach out to you this morning so if you haven't heard from them yet, please be on the lookout for an email. Thanks! Scratch the Caveman

    What does Swami say?
    June 9, 2012
    This is a great item to keep the game moving... ISSO took the KISS (keep it simple stupid) appoach to determining distance to the middle of the green. The middle is always my goal!
    Pros:
    The ease of use. The price.

    NOT USED YET
    May 24, 2012
    Not used it yet because the only course I want to use it for is not on the list. I called and asked to have it mapped and it says I have to wait 3-4 weeks. Send this to me again later and I will rate your product. As of now not so good. :)
    Cons:
    waiting for course mapping

    Can't beat the price for what it does!

    I like this product. I am a professional golf caddy and this instrument saves me lots of time. This GPS-type instrument is correct as far as yardage goes. The device gives you front, back and center distances. If you want to get a well-educated idea how far the pin is from you, this device is more than adequate.
    Pros:
    I like the time savings. The device eliminates "guessing." It is inexpensive for what it does.
    Cons:
    The only aspect I don't like about this product is that it does not give exact distance but the buyer knew that when he/she purchased this product.

    Decent plain vanilla golf GPS
    April 14, 2012
    My golf course was not one of the thousands that were charted by Izzo.A call to customer service was successfull in getting it charted after only a few days! However , on comparing yardiges with my Sky Caddie it was obvious that Swami was off by about 10 to 15 %. Another call to Izzo got another quick response resulting in a recharting of my course and a satisfactory improvement of accuracy. Excellent customer service!
    Pros:
    Simple to operate and good for those that only want bread and butter distance to the hole with reasonable accuracy.(my wife).Also no annual fees of $25 to $50 like my Sky Caddie!
    Cons:
    have to manually advance each hole and maybe too simple but OK for the price.

    I think it is appropriate for the needs of a golfer like me I'm a 29 handicap so it's sufficient enough for me.
    Pros:
    easy to opperate, battery life is very good, and it's pretty easy to read the screen.
    Cons:
    that you can only hold 10 courses at a time

    Disappointed
    February 3, 2012
    I purchased the swami for its ease of use and advertisement of no annual fee. It works great. turn it on and go. I was really surprised. the first course i played i compared it to my partners skycaddie and the yardage was right on. then i played my home course and noticed the distances were off by +10 yards on every hole. I contacted izzo and they told me that the course needed to be remapped. When it was completed i received an email stating that i would need to go online to update my unit. Problem is i had to get a 1 year subscription to do so. I would not have minded at all if i had requested that a course be added to the database. i asked them to correct one that was in the database for which i specifically purchased the unit for. It was their fault. every unit built after Jan 12 will be incorrect. normally on these type pre-loaded electronics the manufacture gives you one update for this specific purpose. Its only $19.00 but i just don't think its right. If you choose to purchase on call the company and make sure your course was recently updated and that you get a recently manufactured unit.
    Pros:
    easy to use easy to read powers up and locates the course good battery life
    Cons:
    You have to pay for course updates that are aready in the database Honestly, i can't say anything bad about the unit itself
