What are the advantages and disadvantages of golf rangefinders?


Even though GPS technology has come a long way, many golfers still prefer to use rangefinders to help them to get the most out of the game. Rangefinders come with a lot of benefits but also with some issues. Here are the main pros and cons:

Pros:

-Accuracy
Every rangefinder that's available for purchase, from every brand, is highly accurate. There is a very small margin of error (less than a yard).

-Versatility of use
Rangefinders can be used on any course as they determine distances based on a manual process. This is unlike GPS systems which can only be used on courses which the manufacturer has already mapped out on a database.

Cons:

-Obstructions
You can only use a rangefinder to find the distance between you and a point if you can point the laser at that point. If there are obstructions between you and the flag, you might find it difficult to get a clear line of sight for the laser.

-Speed
The whole process is much slower than with a GPS system as you have to manually point the laser at the flag as opposed to automatically receiving yardages via your GPS.

-Technicality
Some people find rangefinders 'fiddly' and struggle to use it with shaky hands.

It's also worth mentioning that not all rangefinders are made equal. Some are better than others. Fortunately, websites like this one allow buyers to determine which is the best for them before they make any purchases.

Tip

Loss of GPS Signal and Yardages


It is often thought that a GPS device like the SkyCaddie should keep constant uninterrupted view and connection to the satellites, thus always giving accurate yardage information. This is true of cellular technology, indoors or out, etc, but not for a GPS device like the SkyCaddie. A clear, unobstructed view of the sky must always be maintained for optimum performance. Here are some other tips:

1. When going to play golf, the SkyCaddie should have a fully charged battery and should be allowed to search and acquire satellites for at least 10-15 minutes, prior to play. During this time, the device should be stationary. Many people power the device on then head straight to the course. From that point on, the yardage info you get may be off or may not show at all.

2. Is the golf course you are playing in need of an update? It's good to plug your SkyCaddie into your computer and allow it to sync with the SkyCaddie desktop software. You will receive updates to the device if you do this periodically and you can view your course list to see if any of your downloaded golf courses should need an update. An unupdated golf course on the device can cause yardage problems.

3. Placing the SkyCaddie in your pocket during the game, placing it in a golf cart cup holder, tall trees or heavy shrubbery, hilly terrain, very overcast cloudy days, etc., all can impede satellite acquisition and yardage accuracy.

4. Internal issues. Most SkyCaddie models may have an outward antennae view, but there is also an inward antennae connection that could be compromised. If this is true, the user will not know this, as this type of issue is internal and will need to be sent in to the company for repair, contact them to have this done. This can also be the source of why a device never seems to acquire satellites and/or give accurate yardage information.

It reads 10 to 20 yards shorter than actual yardage.


re-calibrate the unit or get a more accurate unit
20 yards for a cheap gps unit is about average
remember that you actual yardage is measured by the revolutions and circumference of the tyres so the difference could be coming from that area rather than from the gps unit

It needs an alignment... IF not all the LCD segments are not working (hold down the power button) it will need more than likely a alignment and lcd. Hurry, they are starting not to do this service.(new models coming in)

I have the yardage but the flag in the left side of scope doesnt appear (mode) and some lines are missing (--- Y)as well as the Y and the targeting O are faint.


If your Pinseeker Medalist (20-1354) is not showing all the digits in the display.....Return it quickly. You should have 2 years warranty. Look on that little narrow strip on the back. It will show the serial number and the date of manufacturer. (you got 2 years from the date of purchase) If you need to copy your receipt do so. They will fix it.....

Good luck and hurry!!!!

Tour v 2 , it doesnt show the actual yardage and I didn't try i


Make sure the battery is good. (Go to a radioshack and have them measure the voltage). It should be 3.1 to 3.2 volts. The reflectivity of objects being measured is a factor. Lighter colors reflect better than darker colors. Larger objects reflect better than small ones. License plates, highway signs are very reflective. You should be able to hit one of those from more than 700 yards away. Make sure the Pinseeker mode is on and try.....(touch the mode button and the flag comes up on the screen) Don't hold the mode button down for more than 5 sec or you will switch the unit to meters instead of yards.

Will not pick up the flag over 150 yards.


You need an alignment. The transmitter and receiver are not pointing at the same spot. The farther the distance the bigger the gap between the two. Dropping the rangefinder and vibration are killers to Pinseekers. Bushnell will fix ya.....
