The SGX provides all golfin' caveman the critical distance information they need on the course, lettin' you play better and score lower without distraction!

Features:
  • AutoView Technology: Utilizing buttonless and ""touchless” technology, AutoView enables golfers to change between their most popular screens, including HoleVue, IntelliGreen and their Digital Scorecard, with just a simple turn of the wrist. AutoView Technology is controlled by the SGX’s built-in accelerometer to provide three viewing positions – one portrait position and two additional landscape positions. Currently, the default view – in a portrait position – showcases SkyCaddie’s Best-of-Class HoleVue in brilliant colors and precise detail. With a simple turn to the right, golfers are quickly treated to a clear landscape view of SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen, which provides invaluable approach shot information in large clear numbers. Turning the SGX to the left allows golfers to easily check or enter a score with the landscape view of the Digital Scorecard.
  • Dual Navigation: Golfer friendly, one-handed operation provides more precise positioning and better accuracy without obscuring screen information with fingers and smudges.
  • TruePoint GPS Precision Positioning Technology: High performance GPS engine for ultra-fast satellite acquisition and unmatched accuracy and reliability. You can’t trust your club if you can’t trust your caddie.
  • Omni-Directional, High Performance GPS Antenna: Locks quickly to more satellites and stays locked to optimize performance and accuracy in all terrains, even under tree foliage.
  • High Precision Ground-Verified Course Maps:* Only SkyCaddie walks every course to make sure you have information you can trust. No Tour Player uses yardage books derived from satellite images or flyovers. Neither should you. Get unlimited access to the most complete, most reliable, ground-verified course maps in the game with a simple annual plan with no hidden fees or variable charges.
  • Preloaded Courses:† Up to 30,000 course maps are preloaded and ready-to-play out of the box with Basic Green information. Plus store up to 50 full-featured courses through a SkyCaddie Membership Plan.*
  • Hazards, Carries and Layups:* SkyCaddie records thousands of points on each golf course with sub-meter precision. Distances to hazards, carries and layups are displayed automatically as you move down the course. Knowing these critical distances lets you to manage your game and eliminate those 6, 7, and 8’s from your scorecard.
  • Interactive HoleVue With Zoom:* SkyCaddie is creating, at a rate of hundreds per month, the only high-precision graphics library of every golf hole, based on ground-corrected data. With HoleVue, you’ll know the distance to any point on a hole in order to play that hole with the fewest strokes. Need a close-up view to strategize your next shot? HoleVue includes a patented zoom function to dial into the exact area you need to see.
  • IntelliGreen:* With SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen technology, the exact shape of the green automatically rotates to match your angle of approach to provide all of the distances you need to hit more greens and avoid 3-putts. This proprietary feature gives you a chance to turn every shot into a scoring opportunity by providing front carry and back distances, depth of green, and distances to any other point on the green — simultaneously.
  • IntelliGreen Pro:* Built on proven IntelliGreen technology, IntelliGreen Pro is another proprietary feature that adds distances to major green contours, false fronts, front carry and back distances — plus any other point on the green from your angle of attack. This kind of crucial scoring information is only possible by precision-mapping a golf course from the ground with sub-meter accuracy…and it’s only available with SkyCaddie.
  • Measure Any Shot: Discover exactly how far you hit every club in your bag. Knowing your club distances gives you another way to manage your game better.

    seems slow switching to the green view. I guess i am not use to it yet. I like the features. It has helped shave a couple of strokes of my golf game.
    Pros:

    Cons:
    slow switch to green view

    Very Accurate and a great price
    July 8, 2012
    I received my Sky Caddie a couple of weeks ago and have played 3 times since. It works great. The yardages for doglegs and hazards has saved me tons of strokes. I recommend the SGX to any level of golfer, it's well worth the price.
    Pros:
    Price, accuracy and ease of use.
    Cons:
    My Birdie membership only covers courses in Canada. If I cross the border into the states I have to pay an extra $35.00 to get those courses.

    SGX

    I LOVE MY NEW SGX. THE SCREEN IS BIGGER AND VERY BRIGHT. ROCK BOTTOM PRICES ARE THE BEST! I had the SG4 before but like this much better.
    Cons:
    I dislike having to pay for a year when in New York you're lucky to golf for 6 months.

    Just what I was looking for......
    May 22, 2012
    First I would like to say that I'm a 18 handicap player. The SkyCaddie SGX is very precise just like what they say in there infomercial. For the first time in life I have hit several greens in regulation while playing golf all do to the SGX, now if it could only putt for me,my score would go down even more. I am very impressed how easy it is to use and set-up. The other thing that I was impressed with is the service I received from rock bottom golf, ordered my SkyCaddie on a Monday night had it at home Thursday morning, can't get any better.
    Pros:
    How precise it is. Light weight. How easy it is to use.
    Cons:
    Nothing yet.

    Definitely A Must Have
    April 22, 2012
    Having a GPS really takes the guess work out of distances and hazards in play, it is also really nice having actual hit distances off the tee. It also has helped me in my short game by having exact distance from the tee, Front/Center/Back of green and actual placement, when chipping. That makes me more consistent when judging my club swing resulting in my shot getting much closer to the hole. I even had some trees to go through on one hole, as I was off to one side of the green and my view was blocked to the hole, but the SkyCaddie gave me a good line to hit without running around the trees to guess at my line of approach. That helped me out big and took much less time screwing around wondering if my line was good or not. Even with some of the cons I’ve listed below I find that the SkyCaddie is a great unit and would recommend it to my friends as I do believe this unit is number one in the crowd. I have friends with the Garmin G3, 4, 5, and 6’s and they are definitely nice too but I’m glad I went the route I did even with the membership issues. Although I would have been happy with the G6 as well, which would be my second choice for Golf GPS’s. For those that got confused about the $75 accessory pack, the accessory pack was provided by SkyGolf and is sent to you when you register your SkyCaddie online. My is on the way and they sent me a email stating so a couple of days after I registered it.
    Pros:
    1) Accuracy – SkyCaddie SGX is as accurate as they stated, given the plus/minus in the spec. I found it accurate to within approximately one yard, unlike some who say it was always right on, I found it varied some. 2) Easy to read on the course – I had to turn the backlight on to always to be able to easily read the GPS when on the course in sunny conditions. If the backlight is left in Auto mode you may have difficulty reading it on the course. 3) The belt clip that comes with it works well, I just clip the GPS to my pocket so I always have the unit when I need it and the clip holds up well, I never worry about it popping out on me or dropping it. 4) Auto 3 Mode Views – Having the Hole View, Fairway View, and Score Card View change by simply spinning the unit right or left is very convenient. 5) Battery Life – Is pretty good even with Backlight on always. I can easily get 36 in with one full charge with the unit on continually even with backlight on.
    Cons:
    1) Help - Even with online help it can be confusing on what the GPS will do and the benefits of each membership plan. I tried to call their phone number for support but it was always busy so I ended up using their Live Chat which worked well but again was not straight forward. If you do need to use the Live Chat just beware that once you start the session it will not tell you that you are in the queue or that you’ve even initiated the session so be patient and wait so don’t close the chat box and end your session, just wait for an attendant to respond. 2) Acquiring Satellite’s – All GPS’s take time to acquire satellites and this one is no different, it takes a bit of time to get located when on the course. Also I found it went faster if I chose the course and then let it acquire its location then it did to have the GPS do everything. As others have stated, it is best to turn the unit on right away when you arrive at your course. 3) Buttons – When I first started to use the GPS I found myself hitting one of the three top buttons on the GPS. This caused me to turn off the GPS on the first hole by accident which meant I had to wait for it to acquire the course all over again before hitting the next shot. Nicely I was able to Resume easily and from that point on I would always rotate the GPS horizontally on my belt clip before pulling it off the clip so I wouldn’t have those issues from then on. 4) Scoring – This unit doesn’t auto score. It would be nice if they would use marked points as strokes also allowing for drops to be added. Using the manual scoring is easy and you have options for putts & strokes so if you enter both in the statistics are pretty cool. 5) Memory Card Slot – There is a card slot for a Micro-SD card but it isn’t activated for use. It would be very nice if they had made use of this option that is there and could be used. The unit as it is can be easily filled up before you even have half of the course you want to add so having memory expansion and being able to use multiple cards would be an excellent idea. 6) Courses – Although it comes with tons of courses I was surprised that some of the premier courses in my state had not been mapped yet. I can understand not having a lot of the small local courses. It is nice that you can map up to 5 of your own course although you will only have distances to Front/Center/Back of the green and will not have a fairway view with all of the hazards. 7) Memberships – Although they say you don’t have to have a membership if you need to download any courses that are not on the unit already you will need to pay for a membership or map the course yourself. Also when your membership is up the features of the courses you downloaded will cease as well.

    misleading title
    March 31, 2012
    The item is great. Used it today for the first time. The item was misrepresented on the website.it was supposed to come with $75 worth accessories and this carrying bag. I didn't receive any extras. I emailed the site and said it wasn't supposed to come with anything. That's not how it was advertised.
    Pros:
    Accuracy
    Cons:
    Didn't get my extras that were advertised.

    I was disappointed with this purchase because of the lack of pro mapped courses in Australia. They are not hopeful of any more in the near future. Needed support to set it up because of a country glitch. There support was very good.
    Pros:
    Screen and functions. Support
    Cons:
    Poor pro mapping coverage in Australia.

    U have 2 get 1
    December 13, 2011
    The sgx is great! It is totally worth the money! It may be a bit pricey but you will love it after you haves used it! If your tired of guessing the yardage you can't go wrong with the sgx! It's as the saying goes! "you get what you paid for!" Gives you hazards on the course, traps, lay out of the greens! What more could you want!
    Pros:
    Size Durability Screen Performance

    Excellent service
    September 4, 2011
    I bought this Skycaddie and 4 days latter it arrived at my home in New Zealand. I was not expecting it so soon. Well done I will be buying more from you. As far as the unit goes, now that I know my distances I am able to fly my ball into the flag reducing the length and number of putts. I highly recommend both the product and the service that is offered. Cheers, Grant
    Pros:
    The speed in delivery was super fast. My golf has improved as a direct result.
    Cons:
    There is nothing to dislike about this deal !!
