to be clear...I traded in my SG5 for the SGX Breeze, added upgrades 2 & 3. The value for all the above..near $450. I paid less than half that. With a Breeze special
Over all...A serious kick-ass machine. My brother,thinks using his tablet, with an app is the way to go.. We did a three hole for three hole comparison.
on the seventh hole we did side by side...
Short par 5. cross a river twice. His tab with app gave me 275 to the river...
me 3wd...into the river... that shouldn't happen..
we pulled out my Breeze. use the functions...Richard Noggins app give yds to the furthest point, AT the rivers bend, 275. Breeze gave us three (3) different yardages...
even when he moved to the area where we hit...App was off 50 friggin yds...
225 yds to the river...
over all...for price of his tablet $300 app free (but he paid 4$ for extras) accuracy not good. possible damage very high.
Breeze....kicked the apps ass. and gave me more accurate yds.
The lib couldn't figure out, SkyCaddie walks the courses...
app is satellite...Not military or civil engineering usage...just consumer Sat image with a very in-accurate ranger finder...
I will give this...certain locations on the course his app is pretty good...but, he has to take any shot over 150 with some chance of 20-50 yds off...
If your an App addict..have fun. Me, I've dropped my Breeze already. Rubber case did it's job.
I can say. I think SC has gone on the cheap with the new SkyCaddie case. You need the cover.

Nice piece of golf kit. Highly recommended.

Upgraded from SG5 very disappointed. My original purchase developed moisture in the display window, Skycaddie replaced quickly without trouble. The unit is slow, functions are difficult to manage, often has issues during a round and has to shut down and extremely poor design on charge port cover. The instructions were written by someone from another planet. Should stick with the SG5, much better unit.

Just received this device as a B-Day gift, so I haven't even been outside with it. People not familiar with these devices, should be made aware that if you don't subscribe to a plan, you just bought an expensive brick.
She looked at the box, and it says "Ready To Play 30,000 Pre-Loaded Courses, ". Not true for sure. It's a brick until you take the card out, and subscribe to the plan. Thankfully, I already knew this, as I've looked at these for some time, and know others that have a SC.
Second impression. Without question, of all my devices, this Skycaddie has to be the single worset software setup and syncing device I've ever owned. Even worse than the "software" that ran my Tom Tom. From start to finish this had to be the most frustrating experience in electronics.
For an uninformed user, I can only imagine their frustration at loading CaddieSync, finally getting through the layers of crud, then being told you don't have anything until you buy a plan. I know that about 10 last night, this little black device almost took a trip through the air and out on the road. But I persevered, and finally got to the end, $99 poorer for the experience.
I hope it's much better than my $20 GolfLogix app, which is a breeze to use.

upgraded from 3.5. Like the SGX overall but it is SLOW when first powering up and finding course and hole. Not wild about the scroll button. Again, overall I like - - wish they'd do a software upgrade if possible to SPEED IT UP...

Just got the thing and haven't even used it. Works great sitting on my table. Plugs into the wall with ease. Transfers from left hand to right hand no problem.Way to go Skycaddie!You've made me reach my goal of scratch!

I had an SG3. That unit worked great till the screw that holds the charging in stripped out. So I decided to upgrade to the SGX. There are alot of things that I like about this unit, but there are also some concerns. First the good. Yardage works great, Screen clear and easy to read. I like the score keeper option and mark ball option to track distance. The bad. QUALITY. The first unit I had the rubber that went over the USB port fell off after 2 weeks, and the botton to scroll fell off too. However it continued to work for close to a year until it accidently hit the concrete and the GPS got out of wack and stopped working. So I got a refurbished one from Skygolf. Again the rubber on the USB prot area fell off in short order. Then the cap on the antenna fell off. It is held on with electrical tape. The unit had been working fine though untill the USB failed. So know it is dead in the water. Will not charge and is out of warrenty. It appears the quality controll of the units has not been that great. I must quantify this as my unit gets a lot of use. I log about 60+ rounds a year.

I \"upgraded\" from my SG3 only to find out that the software is so slow changing from one screen to another that I decided to keep using my SG3, look like if they designed with a Pentium II processor or something as slow, with the price of a laptop it should fly between screens, only way to use them is skipping the scoring, also you need to use the iphone to keep track of the statistics because even using the same brand the unit is unable to track clubs and distance. Bad Hardware, same software, SG3 is faster, easy and give me the same info. Bad option, lucky I did not give away my SG3, better to give away this one
