The extraordinary accuracy and speed of the Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS allows it to instantly calculate the distance in front, at the centre and even to the back of even the largest of the over 15,000 pre-loaded courses in the Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS’s database.

It has very easy to use buttons coupled with a large, clear display which allows you to effortlessly probe from hole to hole which is turn enhances your enjoyment of the game. The Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS runs on a powerful, rechargeable Lithium Ion battery, which can power the unit for no less than 12 solid hour’s game time for even the most extended games.

Izzo’s Innovation

Here is some back story as to how not only the Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS came into existence but even the hugely popular Izzo empire. Before 1991, golf meant back trouble. Golfers the world over were forced to endure the pain of bearing a mighty heavy bag on a single strap for 18 widely spaced holes. Seeing room for improvement, T. J. Izzo figured out a way to remove the fatigue of golfing by inventing the first ever Izzo product – the Izzo Dual Strap System. This almost blatantly simple innovation made the whole art of golfing a joy and the very game of golf became a relaxation method! It was from this pioneering spirit of improvement and an unrelenting thirst for better quality that the Izzo Product Development and Quality Team members (all of whom are, not surprisingly, exceptional golfers), applied their unparalleled firsthand knowledge of the game and equally driving love for golf to devise these unique, highly superior products to other golfers to help them experience the nirvana of golf the same way the founder and the members of the Izzo enterprise experience it.

Knowing all this, you can rest assured that the developers of the Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS would never market anything less than the very best. The Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS is extremely simple, very fast and exceptionally accurate. But if this was not enough, it is also wonderfully affordable! It is ready to use from the instant you unpack it and comes with a 15 hour battery life.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

It’s very easy to use with no delay or lag. Just simply go to your ball then check the display to see what the distance to your target is.

The advanced technology used provides a highly accurate reading even in comparison to more expensive GPS devices on the market.

Over 19,000 courses are pre-loaded onto the unit.

No annual subscription fees or extra charges.

Cons:

Starting up the device can sometimes be a little finicky. It sometimes takes 2-3 attempts for it to lock onto a golf course.

It doesn’t give you an indication where bunker hazards are.

Final Thoughts

If the Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS has one drawback it is that it is rather dull to look at. The simple black case and drab digital display make it sort of unattractive from a visual perspective. But even so, a product as exceptional as this should be looked at a little more carefully!

The Izzo Golf Swami 3000 Enhanced Golf GPS is ideal for golfers who are looking for an inexpensive Golf GPS device that does the job efficiently with minimum fuss and hassle.

Golf Buddy World Platinum GPS Range Finder

Automatically Recognizes Courses

Maybe the most amazing feature of the Golf Buddy World Platinum GPS Range Finder is its ability to automatically recognize courses. This handy gadget can use GPS to pinpoint not only the course you are playing on but also the exact hole you are on! No more do you have to laboriously sort out the thousands of courses loaded in the Golf Buddy World Platinum GPS Range Finder, now it is only a matter of minutes before all this is done for you, after you activate it on the golf course.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

The device is very accurate for measuring shot distances and even moves the distance reading in real time as you walk towards your ball.

There is no annual subscription fee to pay; thousands of extra courses are available to download for free with many more continually being added.

The unit is very robust. Some consumers have dropped it yet it still continued to work.

Cons:

The screen can be difficult to see in bright sunlight unless you tilt the screen at the appropriate angle.

The battery life isn’t great in comparison to other high-end Golf GPS devices.

The personal targets feature does not work properly. If you turn off the device, then your targets are lost. Golf Buddy has stated this is a known problem with the firmware so it may be fixed in the near future.

Golf Buddy’s technical support is hit and miss. Some customers have found them to be excellent and respond quickly to issues whilst other customers have been disappointed.

Final Thoughts

The Golf Buddy World Platinum GPS Range Finder is on the pricy side, but does offer a good level of functionality in addition to free updates and course downloads. On-screen navigation using the touch screen can prove to be awkward because the targeted area is hard to select. The color screen isn’t vibrant so visibility isn’t great. Also the battery life is rather limited, but should still last you around 35-40 holes.

On a positive note, it is convenient as you don’t need to download courses; there are over 40,000 courses pre-loaded and there is no annual subscription fee. Also the measurement of distances on the course is both quick and accurate.

If you discover a mistake with any of the golf courses that are in the database or if you know of a course which is not listed, you can email GolfBuddy’s customer support and they will make the necessary correction or addition.

Golf GPS Reviews recommends the Golf Buddy World Platinum GPS Range Finder. This high-end, user-friendly and accurate GPS device should shave strokes off your game.

Cons:

If the Garmin Approach G5 Waterproof Touchscreen Golf GPS has one flaw it is that it is a bit uncomfortable to carry around because of its thickness.

The scorecard functionality leaves a lot to be desired. It doesn’t resemble a scorecard well.

The functionality to monitor stats online over time isn’t good, unlike with the SkyCaddie SGX which excels in this area.

Final Thoughts

For any golf lover who demands the best this gadget really is indispensible and any minor discomfort is not worth the extraordinary usefulness of the Garmin Approach G5 Waterproof Touchscreen Golf GPS in any golf match.

Its wide range of features, highly accurate tracking, user-friendly touch screen interface and lifetime free updates makes the Garmin Approach G5 a solid buy for those who are looking for a high-end Golf GPS unit.

The Bushnell Neo+ Golf GPS Rangefinder is a compact, no nonsense, handheld rangefinder and golf GPS which performs its duties impeccably and costs next to nothing when considering how useful it really is!

Perhaps the Bushnell Neo+ Golf GPS Rangefinder looks slightly familiar to you, as if you’ve seen it before? This is absolutely true since it is an upgraded version of the iGolf Neo which made as big an impression on the market when it was introduced a few years ago as the Bushnell Neo+ Golf GPS Rangefinder is predicted to make now. Both these products have only cemented Bushnell’s claims as the undisputed leader of optical aids for the outdoors lover and in particular the golf lover.

User-friendly

Though there are a few downsides to the Bushnell Neo+ Golf GPS Rangefinder. Its interface is pretty small and the lack of a powerful backlight makes reading it much harder in bright sunlight. After turning on the unit, it can take up to five minutes accessing the satellites, which is slower than most other Golf GPS units.

Final Thoughts

This product is a great choice if you want the functionality of more expensive Golf GPS devices, but don’t mind the lack of fancy graphics. Its compact size makes it ideal for carrying in your pocket without any awkward bulkiness. In comparison to the Neo, the Neo+ is great value considering you get 16,000 courses pre-loaded.

It doesn’t come supplied with a physical manual, but you can access the manual online on Bushnell’s easy to use website.

When all is said and done the pros do outweigh the cons and the Bushnell Neo+ Golf GPS Rangefinder is certainly something for any golf lover to have to improve their game in one of the most simplest and cost effective ways.
