I've been using SkyDroid for over a year now. I didn't think it would work, costing only $2, but it works better than most $100 golf GPS's out there.
Every course I've played were already available to download. I haven't had a chance to try to map one myself.
I've found it to be accurate within a couple yards. You have the standard screen showing the major distances in big font. You can change to a map view that you can zoom and pan in. It usually tracks what hole you're on, but sometimes, especially if you switch from app to app, it might get confused.
If you golf and have an Android phone, this is a must have!

I have been using SkyDroid on my Android phone for a while now, but joined a private club this year. Went on the course and the yardages for every hole were totally messed up so I stopped using it -- 800 yards to the par 3, yardages growing the closer I got to the hole -- whacky stuff. However I found out that the club had switched the Back 9 with the Front 9 last year; therefore hole 1 was actually 10 and hole 10 was actually 1, etc. Of course it would be messed up!

But I went on the SkyDroid website and remapped the course correctly .. yes, users can easily set the yardages up for any course! It is very easy .. you see a Google-type satellite image of the course and zoom in, mark the front, center, back of each hole for each of the 18 holes. You can also add hazards if you wish. It was actually very easy to do (and fast!) Mapping a new course or updating it is a gift to every golfer who then goes out with SkyDroid and discovers a properly mapped course for their round.

If you understand how the course is mapped (very, very easy!) then you can understand why yardages may be off. Go ahead and fix it for your favorite golf course -- and map your local course yourself!

What a fantastic way to get any golf course into SkyDroid. Brilliant.

Great app. Am rating it a 5 because of its simplicity. I don't want to keep score, track my GIR, export my scores or anything else. I just want to get yardage to the green. This does so quickly and accurately. I turn off the scoring option (on the first screen when you start). Course downloads take only seconds, and the app is ready to go as soon as you arrive on course and turn it on. No wait while it gets a fix on its location. It automatically moves from hole to hole when you move from green to tee. Of course, it has scoring and stats features if you want to use them, as well as an aerial photo view, which I haven't used yet. (Golf is hard enough without doing a lot of fiddling with an app, which is why I like the bare-bones simplicity SkyDroid offers.) An added bonus I do use is to measure the distance you hit shots if you want to. Just one click to start measuring when you start walking, then watch the yards count as you move. This feature even works in a big field near my house to test different types of balls. I hit drives with different balls, then write down the yardage they went when I pick them up. (So far nothing beats the NXTExtreme for me.)

I've been using this for over a year now and really like it. Tried several others but keep coming back to this one. GPS is very accurate but I still use the Bushnell Jolt x7 jolt rangefinder for distances. What is great about this is all the shot tracking and scoring you can do with it. You can set up what you want to track also and there is a lot to track if you want that level of details. You can track yardages for any club and it will keep track of that for you if you want. Only takes a few seconds to fill in score and all stats you want to track. You can then see cumulative results of all stats. There is just a lot you can do with this app. Using it on a Samsung S4 and works perfectly every time.

My last golf GPS cost me over $200 and didn't perform as well as this one. Must be careful though. The phone should be fully charged. It will drain the battery during a round. Great to know distances, how far your drive has gone and it will keep score for up to 4 players. I highly recommend it.

This is a great GPS golf aid for your phone. My husband likes to use it when golfing. We live in Oregon and most of the courses where he golfs are in the database. He has also used it when we travel and he is golfing at a course he does not know. He is not a huge tech guy but he likes this app

I bought this app for 2.99 and I have been very pleased with it. I was able to load the courses my league plays in West Central Ohio. Knowing the distances allows me to choose the best club to hit. The GPS does a great job. It's easy to use and allows you to keep score as well. I am a very satisfied customer.

I have been using this app for about a year and a half now and I couldn't be happier with it. It is quick and easy to use and its measurements are accurate. Its catalog of courses is pleasantly full too: I've only ever failed to find one course, and that was a relatively new course that had been open for less than a year at that point, so ill pardon them for it.
