The Sonocaddie V500 Color Golf GPS is pre-loaded with over 15,000 U.S. Courses in full 3-D, plus it's so easy to use that even this caveman can handle it!

Features:

  • Preloaded Color Course Layouts and Yardage Guide - Here�s the great news, no more downloading needed! Sonocaddie V500 eliminates the downloading process by preloading all available mapped courses in the US, providing golfers with precise distance information from any point on the course. Sonocaddie�s revolutionary user interface actually shows YOUR position on the course. As you move to the next stroke location, your position is shown and the distances to each critical target are continually updated and shown in real time!
  • Sunlight Viewable Touch Screen - The high resolution backlight screen is viewable even in bright sunlight.
  • 3� Sunlight Viewable Touch Screen - Sonocaddie V500 allows you to touch any point on the color layout / satellite image of the hole and immediately see the distance from you to that point- and from that point to the green.
  • Digital Scorecard and Game Analysis - Eliminate your paper scorecard. The Sonocaddie will automatically calculate the total score with the simple touch of a button, so you will easily know how you did on the front 9 and the back 9 holes. At the end of eighteen, Sonocaddie will present a summary of your round complete with statistics and the score.
  • Personalized Course Information - What golfers love about Sonocaddie is that they can make changes or corrections to the reference points right on the spot. You may change the given course information, and add or delete some of the reference points as the course may change over time.
  • Track Your Game - Sonocaddie can record locations for each shot right on the screen, and can automatically trace waypoints during the round. The information can be stored to Sonocaddie so you may review the round and each shot at a later date.
  • Satellite Imagery (Optional) - See the actual image with yardage information when you are playing! Sonocaddie V500 provides golfers the "full picture" on each hole with satellite imagery and precise distance information from your location. The image will be adjusted to fit on one screen, so you will not need to scroll the screen to see the entire hole, for example if it is a long Par 5
  • Video Flyover (Optional) - The V500 Video Flyover gives you a 5-second overview of the entire hole from tee to green showing you the direction and description of the fairway in advance so you can plan your strategy. Great for playing a new course or looking around a dog-leg!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    So far so good.
    March 7, 2014
    I bought one of these from Rock Bottom on Ebay recently. Followed instructions and downloaded the device driver (I used WIN7 but Sonocaddie indicates that it is also compatible with WIN8 even though that is not indicated, haven't tried WIN8 yet, Apple Mac is NOT supported right now, XP and Vista are supported) and installed same. After registering, I downloaded a course that was not preloaded but was mapped in their database (free download after registering, payment of $s is NOT required for this as a BASIC membership is free). Download was No problem and easy (room to download about 100 courses that are not preloaded). Registered after downloading the device driver, you have to use the V500 keyboard to register and logon to the website (have to logon to the website anytime you want to download courses). To do this requires the V500 to be connected to the PC via USB Cable and PC is connected to the internet(and device driver is loaded prior to this). I requested that they map a course that was not mapped as of yet. Sonocaddie indicated via email that they would do this in 10-14days (this is a free service for this unit). I charged the unit with the AC adaptor. It is also chargable from a PC USB port. Charge time is quoted as 4 to 8 hours depending if unit is on or off. The V500 tells you when the charge is complete. You are told to not charge beyond 8 hours. The unit is in very nice condition, looks almost new actually. It has a few small nicks in the plastic case but nothing on the screen itself. A bit of dust under the thingey that connects to the belt clip. It seems to pick up the GPS satellites quickly although I did NOT time it (this was in my house). Using the unit is pretty intuitive so far but I have not used a lot of functions, see the Sonocaddie website to see all of the functions available. They say you can use a tee on the touch screen for more accuracy and that is true. I have not used the unit at a golf course yet (in the Cold Snowy Northeast and golf is not possible) to judge its accuracy on the golf course. I also have not let the unit lay idle to try and judge its ability to be usable for 12 hours (advertised). Definitely satisfied so far. We see what happens on the course.
    Pros:
    Easy to use. PC Device Drivers download and install with no problems. Additional course download and install with no problems. Seems to have an intuitive interface that is easy to use. Screen is bright and easy to read (in house, don't know about in sunlight). Very nice condition for a refurbished unit. Sonocaddie support seems good so far. Nice price (Ebay bidding). As usual Rock Bottom service is great with quick ship, etc. If my son likes the unit I will purchase one for his use also.
    Cons:
    None so far.
