Manufacturer's Description

Using a distance measuring device is now commonplace in golf and if you're looking for a new golf GPS rangefinder, then the GolfBuddy World Platinum is the best there is. This brilliant innovation from GolfBuddy will definitely get you playing smarter golf, as the TouchPoint measurement system allows you to plan a complete route down the hole, identifying all hazards and safe lay-up points on the hole in a split second. And because GolfBuddy maps courses on foot, ground verified readings combined with a powerful 50-channel satellite reception give unprecedented accuracy. You can also position the flag anywhere on the green using the superb Touch ‘N’ Move flag function, so distances to the front and back of the green – and directly to the pin – are always accurate directly from your angle of approach. GolfBuddy GPS rangefinders deliver exactly the kind of distance information that caddies use to help Tour Pros.

Got this last year and have used it for a full season. Great item which has improved my golf and has helped to bring my handicap down. Gives excellent distance and great to use on a new course. Works OK in bright sunlight.

Course pars/indices are set up for men's tees, fine if you are a man, a nuisance if you're not.

Customer support is non-existent. Emails are ignored. After much proding I eventually got a reply to my email but it was most unhelpful. They didn't even attempt to answer my simple question, they just told me to read the user manual like I hadn't thought of that. My question remains unanswered.

Useful But sometimes it has duff data e,g, saying range is 180 yards when it is really 90! That sort of error in the data base is easily spotted and you can ignore. Rest of the time it seems to be accurate. I use it every time I play, Glad I bought it.

The small print on the screen is difficult to read in daylight.This is especially bad if, like me, you wear spectacles only for reading and not for playing golf - it is impractical to continually put spectacles on and off to play shots.

Good piece of kit. Still learning the controls but most are simple. Screen isn't bright enough on default setting but is clear and concise. I'd purchase again if I had the choice.

My son has a Garmin watch which is also very good. Either is a great choice for a golfer but I prefer being being able to get a view of the hole and distances to hazards which you don't get with a watch.

Very easy to use. Lots of course information although I have found not all the hazards of a hole are listed in the "targets". Overall though a very useful tool.

Easy enough to use but I find I only use the distance recorded. The screen is not bright enough for easy recognition and most buggy holders interfere with the side buttons that control the device.

I have used the buddy a few times now, although i do not hit the ball to exact distances,i have found that it gives me more confidence with club selection, so tend to take the correct club for the shot,had a problem with it at the start,but studying the dvd supplied helped out!bit difficult to read scale when marking score, so do not bother to use that facility.
