Don't purchase the membership...the new software is a nightmare. My unit is now frozen just before a 10 day trip to Hawaii. All my home courses are gone and I can't download or connect. Wait 30 min on hold for customer service, message says "new software release is causing unusual delays".....(how about adding some more customer service people prior to the release)?
This is a good product when it works, but frustrating when down. GPS needs reset continually.

How do I renew a subscibtuion to Sky caddie?


You need the CaddieSync software installed on a PC.

  • If you have not already done so, you can download the software HERE.
  • Connect your SkyCaddy to the PC.
  • You can renew your membership on the Account Overview page in CaddieSync.
    If your membership has expired:
  • Turn on your SkyCaddie and connect it to your computer.
  • Launch CaddieSync. If No SkyCaddie Synced appears in the lower navigation bar, click the Sync button.
    To ensure your courses are updated and downloaded to your SkyCaddie, click the COURSES tab at the top of the CaddieSync screen and select Favorites. You can manage your courses on this page or download courses to update your SkyCaddie.
  • Click the ACCOUNT tab in the upper navigation bar.
  • Login with your username and password. If you do not recall your password, click Forgot your username or password?.
  • On the Account Overview page, click link the Renew link under Actions at the lower right of the CaddieSync window.
If your membership has not expired, you can use the same procedure to renew.
When you renew your membership within 90 days of expiration, you retain your current expiration date as your activation anniversary. You do not risk losing your membership by renewing early.

I just purchased an Approach G3 Golf GPS.. I have used it 3 times and it performed well. However, I tried to use it Tuesday and it told me the batteries need charging even tho' I had just charged them....


Hello,

I suggest you reset your GPS, to reset your gps, follow this steps, turn off your device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press ?Yes? to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
Once the GPS unit is reset, remember to place the device outside where there is a clear unobstructed view of the sky for 15 ? 30 minutes in order for it to requires fix to GPS satellites. with this, this should fix the problem.

Take care.

MY GOLF LOGIX HAS WORKED FOR OVER 2 YEARS . NOW IT WILL NOT AQUIRE SATELLITES. OTHER GOLF LOGIX IN MY **** WORK FINE


The GolfLogix 7 had a problem that if you did a reset to factory defaults it wiped out the Almanac in the GPS. This is the Table of where the satelites are. Put in a fresh set of battery's....turn it on and put it out in the open sky for 4 to 8 hours. Sometimes this will work. If not contact Golflogix Tech Support. They ill probable ship you a replacement unit.
