Reasons to get a GolfBuddy GPS Device

Every day GPS devices are becoming more and more popular as golfers from all walks of life have realized its benefits. With experience and proper use, these gadgets are able to measure distance between objects on the course accurately. Using data from this device, golfers are better able to determine the technique that will bring them the gold.

Let’s talk a little bit about the Golf Buddy GPS. This device offers three choices – Plus, Pro and Tour. Now we’ll discuss each device’s advantages and disadvantages.

GolfBuddy Plus

Among the three models mentioned, GolfBuddy is currently the most popular. Even if it only works with Windows PCs and not with Macs, this is just a minor setback to its other features in general.

This model is good to go out-of-the-box. No more hassles of loading applications – all you need to do is turn it on and you’re off to a full day of golfing pleasure.

Don’t be surprised if the course you’re playing at cannot be found in the Plus. All you need to do is simply map the course by yourself or you can all client support and have them do it for you. Keep in mind that for you to be able to map your own course you’ll need the Golf Buddy database, which may take several days to be made available. What’s good about this database is the fact that it continues to expand everyday as golfers contribute to its 20,000 course library.

A rangefinder’s main function is to ensure accuracy in distances within a course. You can definitely rely on the Plus on this. This is better appreciated when used, and this goes for both amateur and professional golfers alike.

GolfBuddy Tour

The GolfBuddy Tour has more features than what it actually sounds like it can do, among them are:

  • Upgraded specs for more advanced users
  • More spacious memory for 20,000 courses
  • A larger colored screen for easier viewing
  • Longer battery life

GolfBuddy Pro

This model has the exact features of the Golfbuddy Tour, with the exception of a colored screen as this screen features a straightforward gray scale screen. Additional features worth noting include automatic hole and course recognition, added custom target capacity and a lithium polymer rechargeable battery.

All the 3 models mentioned come in water-resistant casing. Each model was also built to last and offers the flexibility of multiple languages. Who wouldn’t call this gadget as his or her best golf buddy?
