Ideal for golfers who want top-of-the-line GPS assistance on the links, the SkyCaddie SG5 Golf GPS is integrated with the very best Swiss engineering to provide unmatched reliability. It features, a large color display with automatic backlighting to ensure easy readability indoors and outdoors, and a long-lasting rechargeable battery (with up to 14 hours of continuous use). It's also equipped with the patented IntelliGreen technology, enabling golfers to measure the full depth and shape of the green from any angle of approach, both on or off the fairway. Part of SkyCaddie's exclusive, professional 4-Star SkyCourses, IntelliGreen graphics provide an eagle's eye view of the green with an indicator representing a direct line-of-play from wherever you are on the course.
With an annual SkyPlayer Club Membership Plan (not included with purchase of device), you can easily download thousands of our professionally enabled SkyCourses. Three different levels of memberships are available, based on how many courses you want to store and play. If you do not want a membership and your course is not already available, you can record the front, center and back of each green with your SkyCaddie's quick set-up module, which takes about 10 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can the SG5 give me the distance to the pin?
A: The SkyCaddie, using the IntelliGreen graphics found on our professionally recorded SkyCourses, provides more information than just the distance to the pin. Once the line of play is selected on the graphical green outline, it provides the minimum carry to get on the green, the maximum limit you have to the back of the green, plus you can adjust to obtain the third distance of the approximate flag location. All three distances are provided simultaneously from any direction as you approach the green. You can then frame your shot in a much larger target area and select the best club. You will hit more greens and have shorter putts than a single number can provide.

Highly recommended. I read the previous comment and can not understand why he had any problems.
This unit is wonderful. Loaded like a charm. The Subscription was about $40 for a year and you can load 10 courses for this rate. There are higher subscription rates if you'd like to have more courses or even international courses. Change courses as often as you like.
This even had the specs for my favorite "remodeled" course which was finished in February. Very up-to-date info.
Accurate! Will measure to the center of the green and will even measure your drive distance. Problem is, when other people on the course see my skycaddie that all want to "play" with it. It can slow down the game.
If you are thinking about purchasing a GPS rangefinder, this is NOT the one to consider. What the manufacturer won't tell you is that SkyCaddie comes with everything you need: handheld GPS unit, belt clip, and crippling software and hardware malfunctions. Unless you are lucky enough to find a unit that isn't defective, and you won't be, you'll find Windows (XP or Vista) doesn't support their desktop client, nor does it recognize the device when connected to a USB serial port. Think you can fix the problem? Guess again. Customer support is worse than abysmal, I'm not exaggerating when I say I've dealt with AIRLINES that are more helpful. After waiting on the phone queue for 120 MINUTES, I was told by a smug and unconcerned customer "support" technician that the only solution to fixing my newly purchased $600 product was to return it. Golf can be a frustrating hobby. Why make it worse by having this glorified paperweight in your pocket?
My SkyCaddie SG5 Golf GPS works as advertised- set-up went smoothly, course availability is excellent. This unit replaced the SG4 I accidentally destroyed, but links up faster and gives an accurate reading quicker than the SG4. Yardages are fast and accurate. On customer service- they ARE terrible. Don't expect them to walk you through set up if you have problems. Go to one of the skycaddie forums online if you need assistance. If you must deal with customer service- send an email through the skycaddie desktop (though chances are they will just ask you to return your unit).
