How do you reset the username and password on a Skycaddie SG5?

I want to purchase the unit from someone, but they tell me they can't unlock the unit because the forgotten (or don't know) the username and password.  They say when the unit is powered up they can't get past the login screen.  I have email Skycaddie, but no answer yet.

Attach your skycaddie to you laptop, using the usb cable. Go to skygolf.com and click the "sync" button in the upper right corner. Choose renew membership, then click the second option ("transfer membership"). Set up your account and follow the steps. This will transfer the membership, but you will need to hit sync a second time to update the firmware (if needed). It's pretty easy. If anything goes wrong, click the chat button on the left side of the screen for instant support.

My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

My SkyCaddie SG5 turns off on its own on the course and is slow to update yardages. It worked perfectly for a year and then I noticed the screw that hold the battery cover closed was missing. I replaced...


i have the same problem, I turn it on to play and about 2 min later it shuts off. i plugged it into the wall and it passed the 30min trial test. when i removed the back a small little half circle piece came out. not sure what to do??

Sky Caddie SG5 will NOT turn on


Hi David
I know this is some time after you posted your question. I had the same problem with mine and was ready to throw it in the bin.
Searced the net and someone had posted that they bumped into a Skygolf rep who suggested lifting the charging flap and blowing into the hole.
I thought he's having a laugh, but guess what it worked.
Good luck if you've not already fixed it.

Do not have my usernane or password with me?


This is a HIGHLY unusual/suspicious situation to say the least.

After you launch CaddieSync, click the Forgot your username or password? link on the login screen. Enter the email address you used when you created your account. If you do not have the email address, click I do not have the address or username for the account and enter your ESN.
CaddieSync will show part of your email address to help you remember which address you used when you set up your account. Your username and password will be sent to this address.
After you log in, you can change your email address or password on the ACCOUNT page.

If you still don't know your login email address, your only option is to ship the unit back to the manufacturer for resetting.

Lost power mid download


I think there is a way to reset the unit by holding down one or more buttons while turning it on. This varies from brand to brand, read your manual.

Installed new battery and still shows low battery after 2 holes and 24 hours of charging


if all cables on battery are clean and tight, then most likely it is the alternator putting out a low charge. test the alternator it should be at least 14 or a little more when running. 12.5 to 13 when off. if alternator is ok, then check all wiring from alternator to battery, and make sure the battery ground is ok!! best of luck carl,
