sully51 - 10/5/17 The Touch is the best by far. have had no issues so far. I will always own a sky caddie
martin1956 - 10/5/17 Having had both an SG5 and an SGW before I was looking forward to the Touch when my SGW wore out.
IMHO it isn't anywhere near as good as its predecessors. Unless you have backlightiong set to 25% it uses about 2/3 of its battery on 18 holes.
I have had many issues with it getting stuck on holes as well.
Personally I would prefer the software from the SG5 put into the SGW box with its better display. You can keep all the tactile functionality as far as I am concerned. Sorry but that is my experience
raysherman - 8/21/17 Battery life sucks. Dead by 18 holes.
Bill Blast - 7/13/17 After being a member for all these years with the SGX, it looks like skycaddie is on borrowed times with me. The SGXw is full of issues. It goes dead by the 16th hole, takes several attempts to upload to cell phone. It appeared promising but ended being very disappointed. I would rather go back to the SGX.
RNGR987 - 5/6/16 I like it a lot. I had the SG5 and I was skeptical about moving up to the Touch. I had my SG5 for 7 years. The TOUCH takes a while to adjust to but I'm very happy with the move. It's a tad slower than the SG5 but not enough to slow me down. The different views are excellent and I especially like the HoleVue and Intelligreen. The screen touch takes a bit to get used to also but I calibrated it often and it seems to work great for me. I like the Bluetooth connection but to get all the updates you must still connect it to a computer once in awhile to get the latest updates. I connect at least once a week and it stays updated. The one improvement that could be added is better instructions on how to use it. The instructions cover the very basics to get started and with all the features offered I thought they were lacking in details. After 2 months of 3 to 4 rounds a week I have it nailed down and am very comfortable with it. The MARK ball option works very well and I like the ability to turn the screen clockwise/counter-clockwise and change the view without pushing buttons.
jw_Oxnard - 9/13/15 Graphics w/yardage arcs are very helpful in making club & target selections. Screen refresh, particularly btwn scorecard screen advancing to next hole "eagle view" takes too long & too many screen touches. Fellow golfers commenting on my time management and delays in making club/target selection not only on tee box but also on the fairway. Using screen lock prevents/disrupts viewing of dynamic updates of yardage displayed. Would like to capture metrics on sand traps hits/recoveries. Yardage walked during round would be useful but currently not available.
jimhock - 7/20/15 This is a poor excuse for a range finder. It is slow to turn on, the battery does not last a full 18 holes on most rounds, the top of the screen is partly covered, is very difficult to see distances to hazards, the screen is dark unless on 100% bright which uses up the battery, the screen is smaller than my sg5 and help line was unfriendly and refused a return at 65 days. They marketed it as a upgrade to my sg5 but it a downgrade. I offered to trade back even up for my sg5 but was refused. Afer my subscription runs out i will send it back as junk Bad company bad service jimhock
gardinerb - 6/13/15 Ok, have had my Touch for a year now. Was certainly harder to learn to use its features vs my retired SG5. CONS: The on/off switch is brutal to operate. As you travel between shots the screen flips between the 3 screen shots, but does wind up to the yardage screen when you stop. Takes forever to load a course. And finally, one cannot track "sand saves" with this unit. PROS: Screen more visible in bright sunlight. Yardage bands very useful. Touch feature for yardages excellent. Easy to use "ball mark" feature . Like the Fairway stat tracking - very useful.
All in all I have to forget about the SG5 and learn to (like?) (love?) (tolerate?) this unit!
