This app has not been updated in forever. Hardly works anymore, especially on iPhone max. Will not renew my membership. Such a shame!
I recently purchased the GT2 Gametracker system to use with this app. I love the concept. However, the product is useless because the app is terrible. I have played, or tried to play, two rounds using the app. The first time the app crashed 10 times in less than 9 holes. The second time, the app did fine for 8 holes. It crashed for the first time on the 9th hole. It then crashed 10 to 12 more times before the 15th hole. It was so frustrating, I stopped counting. What is even more frustrating is that Sky Golf will not refund the shipping costs they charged me. It is not my fault they sent a useless product. I would understand if the product worked and I simply decided I didn’t want to keep it. But, they sent me a useless product because the app is so bad.
I started with the SG4 which I used for a few years. Then upgraded to the SG5 because the charging port on the SG4 went bad. The unit could still work but can't charge it correctly. Myself an another me never mapped our course. One of them is available to download on the website (Wapsi Oaks Country Club in Calamus Iowa). Many years have passed since someone from Skycaddie stopped by to map the course CORRECTLY, but it was cold & rainy that day plus the person said he was fighting a cold at the same time. I've put I SEVERAL requests to have our course mapped by Skycaddie and NOTHING has come of it. Yes we're only a 9 hole course in the middle of no where. But it gets played by a lot of people. What's it gonna take to have our course mapped? Along with a couple other courses in our area that could be done also?
Traveled from FL to Northwest Michigan for 2 weeks of golf. This app failed me repeatedly. Got a lot of “Image not available” (so, why have it?), and lock-ups where the hole showed but I was unable to move the target line to determine distances to objects (again, so, why have it?). After first day of this I contacted the Help Chat who suggested deleting & reloading the app, which I did repeatedly to no avail. I had strong cell coverage at all times. I’ll be canceling Skycaddie and trying other apps.
I have owned SkyCaddie products since their inception - their accuracy is exceptional. However, as time has passed, I have had number of challenges. Currently my challenge is the whole system. I have the app, linx and tabs and they are not useful yet. First, one of the courses I have for download is not even an option on the app, yet my linx does have it. The app consistently crashes at my home course providing such a distraction I can’t use thetabs. It has been two weeks since I reported the issue and it is still unresolved. It has been two months now and I have to say that overall this been a pretty bad experience. Although they were finally able to get the course added, the app crashes pretty much every hole. After around seven conversations with customer support, there has and appears to be no progress for now or ever. I am rerating to a one star and appear to be stuck with a gps watch that I spent a significant amount that can only do what my range finder does better.
The app thanks me for updating and asks to sign in again. I click OK and it just goes into a perpetual thinking mode.
I do like this app but find it VERY slow to update yardage’s. I hope you can fix that. Also, I find it odd that it doesn’t report your total putts after a round which is a stat I’ve tracked for years.
I really expected this app to eat battery like crazy... it doesn’t. It only seems to grab your location when you open it up without running in the background. It’s a really good basic gps range finder that is reasonably accurate for a weekend type golfer.
App asks EVERY time you do anything if you want to enable Bluetooth. Makes it almost unusable. They also can't sync a subscription either. My app disabled itself in the middle of a qualifier today 2 weeks into my subscription. Not worth $30/year. Invest in your product. Not a good app.
Nice to be able to keep score and use SkyCaddie features but adding pics is unstable and causes app to either crash and/or freeze. Hoping for continued improvements.
