Don't buy the SkyCaddie

Pros:

Good screen size and great yardage when it works.


Cons:Bad tech support and costly to have repaired if needed.

SkyCaddie is wonderful when it works. I have had extreme difficulty in using their tech support as they seem to want to answer a question you didn't ask. Also, my unit has had great difficulty in acquiring satellites. I have to do a GPS reset almost every time I use it and most of the time, it's a 3-4 resets at the golf course before it shows the yardages. After much emailing and phone calls, they gave me an RMA to return the unit for repair. Now it's going to cost me shipping plus $35 up to $100 to have it looked at and repaired. If it takes the $100, then why bother? I'm tossing this in the garbage and seriously considering a GolfLogix which is manufactured by Garmin. You don't even have to select the golf course you are playing. Just turn it on. Much less complicated than doing resets all the time.
