No experience with other devices except a friend with smart phone app, which seems slow but is inexpensive. Bought a refurbished SGX & subscribed to the service. Worked well at first, but now tends to freeze up at times, skips holes & can't backtrack to correct hole images or score. Any suggestions ?

Priceless tool when you want to shoot your best scores. It helps to choose the right club and control distances.

my first sgx, I bought off a guy. it had a software issue and the warranty was up. skycaddie replaced it anyways, I was very impressed. this new one is a lot faster and is very accurate. overall it works great and by keeping the light turned down the battery lasts for 2 rounds.so far so good

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...
