Another gift for my hubby.
I will admit I was hoping to buy one he didn't have to keep paying NEW fees every year to add more courses.
Little did I know (he didn't tell me) HE DID pay (like $35 to $50...whatever it's set at) to add new courses one year, maybe even 2 until I put an end to that.
I don't believe in that, not just for cost involved but also due to principle (you PAY for something, I am NOT subscribing here! Most of us do NOT pay to update our Car GPS but assume it will work as expected & they do).
But I dunno I can blame Bushnell for his lapse there. But heck, surely they DO make money on consumers JUST like him wanting to add new courses on but to you potential buyers, my advice is DON'T.....you get to load I THINK up to 100 courses initially....that should be ample enough to manage your golf addiction...(lol).
I guess it works beautifully & for its cost (yeah, I look around a bit & read reviews) this is a wife investment.
All his (golf) friends wives bought their husbands one (believe THIS one) after I did so (only so many ideas we have for suitable gifts that bring true joy & WILL be useful!)
It also tells me how far I hit my shots. Press a button at the spot where you hit the shot and check the display when you find your ball.
What's nice is that it fits easily in my pocket. It updates quickly and runs forever on a charge. Considering the price you can't ask for much more.
Here are the drawbacks.
You have to manually advance it to the next hole. A minor annoyance, I wish it did that automatically but it does not.
I use Mac and software is really flaky to the point of being unuseable. Runs fine on a Windows computer though.
You have to buy a one year subscription to download courses. Of course once you download a course you own the info. I've downloaded as many courses as I think I might play. But if I go on vacation to a new course I'll need to buy another subscription. Of course considering what I'll pay for greens fees the price of the subscription is pretty insignificant.
On most courses the distances seem pretty accurate. For some reason there's one course where a few of the holes are wildly inaccurate. Stand in the middle of the green and it gives a distance of 100 yard away. There is a way to custom map the course, but the push button interface makes it very non intuitive. One of these days I'll remember the manual and remap the holes that are off.
Last thing, if you rely on the belt clip you will lose it in short order. I made a tether out of velcro strips and look the tether around a belt loop.
Overall it's a good value for the money.
I purchased two neo's last week, one for my wife and one for a xmas gift. I immediately downloaded our club info and headed off to play. There were several holes where the yardage was off. But two were wrong by 20 to 30 yards. There was a redesign done about 4 years ago and these two greens were moved by about that distance. There were other more minor changes which I'm sure accounted for some of the other errors I noticed. I also have a Tour V2 so the distances were verified.
I returned both units yesterday. Not because there were errors, they can be corrected, but because of what I discovered after the round. I went to the iGolf site and read the reviews for this course. In May, 2010, a reviewer wrote about these same errors and that the likely cause was the redesign. The same month an iGolf rep responded on the same thread that the course data would be reviewed/audited. In Oct, 2010, the original reviewer posted again that the errors had not been corrected. Here we are, 18 months after the problem was identified and accepted by iGolf, without a fix.
I know I can add custom points as a workaround. So what's the big deal? That good golf requires confidence is a common axiom about this sport. My problem is that if I know that they are so negligent in doing reasonable maintenance of this service then I can never be confident about using this tool when playing any new course. Also, it just ticks me off from a principle point of view that they charge a subscription fee every year for data that has been wrong for years and they know about it.
