  • Expensive, but for the enthusiastic amateur it's a superb training tool and round recorder.

    While the SkyCaddie SGX incorporates some features which users will find appealing, the lack of polish in the interface, no touchscreen ability, the poor course coverage, and buggy desktop software make this device difficult to wholeheartedly recommend at a cost of approximately $500 for 3 years.

    Overall, in my opinion the Skycaddie SGX GPS navigation is a superb tool for the more complex golfer. This product isn't something for that weekend hacker. It is perfect for the gamers that need to make enhancements around the course.

    If you are not seriously interested in your round of golf you might like to take a look at other Gps navigation models because that one is a little pricey around $300.

    Compact, handheld, no-frills golf GPS rangefinder that gets the job done at a more affordable price point.


  • If you are shopping for a compact, ready-to-use, golf GPS Range Finder then the Bushnell Neo Plus range finder would make a great choice. This amazing little unit is simple to use and comes preloaded with 25,000 North American golf courses. It features the SiRFstarIII GPS Chip and adheres to USGA rules. It has an easy to use interface, a shot distance calculator, and it even shows you where the key hazards are on the hole you are playing.


  • The Garmin Forerunner 610 is an outstanding device. It's versatile, responsive, accurate and well-designed. It's not just the big things like how it's packed with features, and the way they are accessed and arranged in such a logical way. Small details matter, like being able to set the time manually while on a flight without having to connect to a computer or find a satellite signal, using a magnetic charger, or having the scrolling touchscreen menus. It's a great product with a hefty price.


  • Garmin's Forerunner 610 is pricy but if you're a serious athlete we can definitely see its value. It's able to track and store a huge range of workout metrics in combination with the bundled heart-rate monitor, and includes software to monitor your long-term progress via PC. The touchscreen may be a bit fiddly but our biggest concern is the short-ish battery life.


  • The Forerunner 610 is a huge improvement in terms of operability over the 410. The touch screen makes interacting with the menus, cycling through pages and accessing the data much much easier. But there are still the occasional problemsd with selecting options on screen, scrolling is one operation that, for me at leats, still proved fiddly and cumbersome but on a run, which is where it really counts, it works well. A single tap to select and change pages is easily performed and the data can be scanned quickly.


  • The Astro 320 handheld GPS has a removeable microSD card slot that allows you to add additional maps including detailed maps such as TOPO, Inland Lakes, BlueChart and City Navigator. You can also add Garmin BirdsEye Satellite imagery with subscription.
