Top Customer Reviews
There is no delay or lag with this device, I usually walk but I have taken this in a cart and the readout was instantly changing its displayed yardage as we were cruising down the fairway. The display finally settled to a fixed yardage less then a second after the cart stopped. No waiting, no delay, just get to your ball, look at the display, and grab the right club with the assurance that you know exactly how hard to swing.
Simplicity at its most basic. There's no buttons to push, no tiny numbers to squint at, and no unnecessary score keeping or shot recording. There's no downloading needed, no annual fee, and no hidden costs to unlock "Pro" features.
The 3000 has the same form factor and button controls as the previous 1500 model allowing for the use of older accessories and the same simple easy to use interface. Along with a power button there is a "FCB" button for switching yardage from the front of the green to the center or to the back, and two other buttons for scrolling through the holes.
There is no need for any data entry or course set up, theres only a need to arrow up to the next hole. I had originally thought that the 3000 advanced to the next hole automatically, it just turns out that the 3000 was so popular with everyone else I golfed with, they all arrowed up to the next hole while I was teeing off.
There is only one down side to this simplistic route for Golf GPS: The Swami 3000 ONLY shows distances in a straight line from where you are to the green. This is only an issue with dog legs, as the course will read 560 yards the Swami 3000 might read 378 yards. So the Swami does NOT show distances centerline of fairway. Other more expensive GPS that cost 3 to 4 times more will show various yardages to hazards and bends in the fairway.
The service and technology this device uses is the most advanced there is. No other Golf GPS device can have a more accurate reading. The best any other device can do is match this device in accuracy as it too would be using the same tech.
Go to Izzo's website for information on what course maps are already available. In the future when newer courses are created in your area, you can request Swami to obtain the maps for their database. Then you'll have to set up an account and download the map just like you would for the Swami 1500.
In the end; this very inexpensive yet extremely helpful device gives the golfer a remarkable advantage with approach shots and defining accuracy.
Accuracy seems to be about +/- 5 yards. I can see my distance changing by that much while I am standing still. Course-mapping may be a little off, as well. When I walk up to the front of a green, the Front measurement is rarely zero; but the error is less than 10 yards.
I don't completely trust the readings, yet. I prefer using my laser rangefinder for approach shots. However, it is useful for blind approaches, and for quickie club selection for lay-ups.
Battery life is more than adequate. No problems lasting through a 4-5 hour round.
The Swami is pretty good considering it costs not much more than a round of golf. It is way better than pacing and finding yardage markers. But, it is less reliable than laser rangefinder.
I've never used any other golf GPS, so cannot really compare. But, I would purchase Swami again. It is a useful tool for the price.
Her first use of the Swami was in a practice round before an out of town tournament. I had my GPS (found to be very accurate) and she had her new Swami. We turned both units on at the same time. The Swami was ready to go about 2 minutes before my GPS. Thorought the round we found the Swami to be + or - 1 yard or dead on to the middle as compared to the Skycaddie. The front and back could be off by as much as 1/2 a club. Can't complain about that with the way we play.
My wife has used the Swami several times on her own since. She raves how easy it is to use. Turn it on the 1st tee. Big easy to read yardages (great for over 50 eyes), hit hole advance while recording your score. Perfect for my sweet loving technotard.
We just returned from an Arizona Golf Outing. Not knowing what courses we were going to play (overseeding) and not wanting to pack the laptop for course downloads to the skycaddie we took the Swami (19,000 courses preloaded). The Swami worked flawlessly all 7 days.
If you want to know everything about the course you are playing and keep stats on your round pay $400 and buy a full featured GPS unit like I did. For $90 and get accurate F/M/B, you can't beat the Swami a great 2nd or back-up GPS unit.
