Arccos Driver is a performance tracking and live competition system, featuring advanced GPS, live stats and global competitions. Arccos Driver delivers real-time data for tee shot distances, fairways hit and more. The single-sensor platform achieves this by automatically detecting each drive and recording second shot position all without the need for tagging or other annoying disruptions.
From the Manufacturer
Arccos Drivers users are presented personal, skill-based challenges for fairways hit and “Bomb Drives” (tee shots longer than their average). The “Arccos Yards” points system then allows golfers to compete against their foursome, friends and others on daily, weekly and monthly leaderboards hosted in app.
Arccos Driver is completely seamless and adds no interruptions or annoying disruptions to your game.
Distance & Accuracy Stats for every drive and round.
Personalized challenges based on performance history.
Live leaderboards for daily, weekly, monthly and customized competitions.
Arccos Driver adds a heavy dose of fun and social competition to some of the best aspects of our premium, 14-sensor Arccos Golf system.

So, just a bit more information, the sensor itself works fine. I was able to download the software for the full Arccos version (sensors for each club) and see my drives perfectly on the course map. I could even verify the distance because my first drive was for a 270 yard par 4 where I drove the green and was just above the hole on the fringe. This came out perfectly on the display. But with all the other holes, it thought my drive was where the last shot occurred near the green (unfortunately I didn't drive the green on every hole). So, it is clear that the sensor is accurately marking the starting point of the shot.
How does this compare to other devices?
Despite the poor review based on the missing information on system requirements, there are some positives.
First, customer service was responsive and helped me understand that it was the gyro that was preventing the app software from even loading on my device. I had no less than 3 exchanges with them, so it's clear that they know they're in a highly competitive environment where service counts.
Second, the accuracy was correct within probably around 3 yards. Any device that claims much better probably not telling you the truth, but who needs to know whether their drive is 250 or 253 yards long? The true benefit of these devices that they automatically keep track of the distances without interaction and the collect statistics so you can see trends. You won't learn anything about your swing faults, but you can get the "reality check" that perhaps the old fish story of the 360 yard drive may not be true (okay, not a selling point).
I will say that these devices are very similar because they are based on differential GPS (taking the difference of the location of your drive and the next shot). The common errors are removed in the computation and that happens to be very accurate. Every person can determine if the information is important enough to spend the money on the device. And I should add, the device is a little plastic knob that has a blue tooth transmitter that goes on the end of your club. It really couldn't be any simpler (and incredibly low tech in many regards).
Based on the experience with the driver, I'm not sure if it has nearly the value of something that monitors the yardage on your irons. Afterall, the shot into the green is the one that needs to be repeatable and precise. But that's for every individual to decide.
But, I don't think it offers much more than what you pretty much already know. If you don't know your average distance with the driver already, you need to do some work. Also, most average golfers are trying to find consistency. I have some friends that slice the ball every tee shot, but beat everyone because they know how to play their shot. This device can tell you where you are hitting it, but gives you zero feedback in the way of improving your swing.
Overall, this device lives up to its billing, but I'm just not sure how valuable the stats it provides actually are. If you are well aware of your tendencies, then this device will not offer much.
I have a Moto G third generation phone which does not have a gyroscope. I read a review that said this gyroscope was necessary to use the Arccos. This was not mentioned by Arccos. My wife has a Moto G second generation which has a gyroscope.
I tried both phones with the Arccos. The Arccos app had been easy to download and all looked right. I could find no difference in the phones use of Arccos. I hit the ball with my driver which had the Arccos unit screwed into the end. It had been paired. When I hit the ball it said that the hit was detected. When I got to the ball, it gave me the correct distance to the green judging by the Golf Buddy Watch that I was also wearing. They both gave the same distance to the center of the green. This is good.
The bottom line is that if this is what the Arccos does, I find that using another GPS devise, such as a GPS watch is easier to use. In any case I didn't find any difference between the Android that had the gyroscope compared to the one that didn't. They both registered where I stopped to hit my ball for the next shot by indicating the distance to the green.
This is what any GPS unit does.
* Has one sensor optimized for your driver - does not provide accurate results with other clubs (better with woods than irons).
* Requires you to set distance by using GPS on phone and stopping at ball's landing position.
* Pointless at driving range since you can't manually put in distance - need the GPS...
Easy to use and set up.
You can edit the drive based on location if the GPS picks up wrong spot (happens often if you stop at partner's ball first).
Inexpensive compared to some range finder watches and equipment.
Basically this is a fun gadget for the golfer in your life. Best as a gift. It will provide a bit of fun but will quickly wear off. It is not a perfect tool and is really more of an aid to analyze a drive made during play on a course. It's really neat but totally an unnecessary tool. Range finders are great. And nothing beats having a good coach, partner, trainer to tell you when your swing is really off! Or if you're like me, you know where you went wrong the instant you make contact with the ball!
