    My battery is only a few months old. Taking it out and reseating it did not help. When it's plugged in the charge light is red then immediately turns green. The unit will not power on however.

How long have you had this battery for this device? Is it the same battery you have had in the device since date of purchase? Since I don't know the answer to these questions, if the battery is over 12 months old, you need a replacement, quite possibly, even if it is indicating a full battery. The other side of the coin is if it is NOT the battery, it could unfortunately something has gone wrong internally and you may need to send the device in for repair. Try leaving the device's wall charger plugged in and then power the device on and select start to see if the device will then automatically shut off. If it still shuts off, there is an internal problem with the device. If it does not shut off while the charger is plugged in, but shuts off when the charger is NOT plugged in, sounds like a battery issue.

My sky caddie sg5 wont charge


If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced

To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
  1. Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
  2. Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.


Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.

Buttons won't work. Just returned from a 6 day golf trip where the SkyCaddie SG4 worked perfectly for the first 5 days. I recharged it in a wll outlet overnight, then on the next day the buttons...


Power On/Off and Key Lock/Unlock - Press the Power button located at the top right
of the Sky Caddie to power on/off or to lock/unlock the keypad. Upon pressing
the Power button you are prompted to choose either "Off" (Left Soft Key) to power
off the device or "Lock" (Right Soft Key) to lock the keypad. To unlock the keypad,
select 'Unlock" by pressing the Right Soft Key, then choose "Yes".

Where can I download the skycaddie installation program for my mac?


I've located the download page for the CaddieSync desktop application for your SkyCaddie SG4 GPS. Simply visit this link: http://www.skygolf.com/skygolf/Membership/Owners.aspx and you should find the download. You'll need to select the Mac option and then choose SG4 for the model. Remember: don't connect your device to the computer until after you have the software installed.

Locked on Update screen...will not function at all


Contacted SkyGolf directly and they were very helpful. It was a simple software reset accomplished in two steps:

On the TOOLS pulldown menu, select RELOAD, then select RELOAD LAST APPLICATION, which in my case was the latest firmware update (ver 2.2). They (SkyGolf Tech Support) also accesses your computer remotely via a HS Internet Connection and can do the entire process for you.

It then reset the last update program, which had stalled (causing the lock-up) and then all I had to do was reinstall the latest update, disconnect the Skycaddie and do a GPS RESET outside where it can capture the satellites, then do another SYNC to get it back where it was before the problem began.

I was very thankful that it did not require sending the unit in for repair or replacement.

Additionally, the newest firmware update adds SCORING capabilities to the SG4, which I think is cool.

Make sure your cord is plugged into the SkyCaddie with the cord pointing down towards the battery, not going up. It makes sense and it is easier to plug in with the cord going up, but you will eliminate this error if you plug in the cord with the cord going up.

SkyCaddie SG4 Direct Connect Problem


Turn your power cable/connection cable over. You are connecting it wrong. When connecting it to the back of the SkyCaddie, make sure the cord it going down towards the battery, not up. That will fix your issue.
