I’ve set it up, green circle lined up, machine says “ready.” I’ve hit 20 balls and not ONE SHOT was picked up by the unit. Absolute garbage. -Update: Developer responded instructing me to ensure I had set everything up according to their guide. I had. And I did. Still won’t pick up a single shot. Still trash.
I downloaded the app after seeing it on YouTube. It is awesome that technology like this is available for iOS, but it does need some major improvements. The main problem for me was the completely inaccurate distances. My average 7 iron goes about 175 yards, but the app was telling me I was carrying the ball 210 yards. The same goes for my driver and all other clubs really. Even though I recalibrated the camera, and used a towel to minimize vibration, it still gave me ludicrous readings.
Gave it (iOS) a try in my garage range with a 7 iron and 5 iron. Didn’t read first 4 hits but then read 3 and no more after. Reset but still no reading. Understand indoors is beta so . . . . Readings on free version were so so with launch making sense but no distance. Would be nice to have a 7 day full version trial. Have looked at many on-line and You Tube reviews that seem to feel as I do. Not all that accurate but given cost still like to see it in the 95%+ area and consistent. Otherwise why? Believe it is a great 1st step but not willing to subscribe until working better with some greater accuracy. Also, would nice to have direction accuracy since this is targeted to non pros but golfers who want to improve. Understand that once accuracy and consistency improved with some more info will be worth paying a bit higher subscription price. Probably not something one needs year round but periodically could well be worth it. Hang in there with a great 1st step. As phones/technology over next couple years improve, will really help in getting this to the desired performance levels.
Haven’t tried it outdoors. iPhone X. Even with low-light beta.
I found the tracking and distance inconsistencies a distraction to practice. Rather than focusing on my game I was focused on getting the app to see the ball and on the few times it saw it, providing reasonable feedback. As much as I want it to work it is not currently helpful.
I used it along side a TrackMan and it’s within 10 yards about 15% of the time, within 30 yards 80% of the time, and the other 5% it can be up to 60 yards off. As far as swing speed it varies up to 15 mph +/-. If it was completely free it would be OK at best.
It worked great for a while until I tried to sign in on my iPad but it didn’t work. So I tried to sign off on my phone and it still didn’t work so I just said whatever I’ll just sing back in on my phone and then it did the same thing as my iPad did it put me back on the home screen every time I tried to sign in. Update I figured it out I was being an idiot my bad I love it it works perfectly
I used it for the first time today and out of approximately 50 shots, it only missed 4 or 5. It seems that if you take the time to set everything up correctly, it will work fine. Great app that provides a lot of useful data.
This app is very inaccurate with the distances. It says I hit my 7 iron 160 yards which is the average distance I hit it. Then the next shot it says i hit it 209 yards. The ball landed in the same area on the range so I know that was not correct. My phone is attached to a mini tripod so there is no vibration and my ball is at the correct location from it.
Is the free version limited on the amount of days I can use it? I downloaded the app a while back, but just got my practice area completed. Now it want turn green for me to hit.
