Device did not show yardage to hole


Maybe the yardage indication is predicated on the screen size - on many units if you are way out in range, you get nada until you zoom in. Check that angle out.

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.

Bushnell neo+


The wording on this question is almost word for word of a message I sent iGolf customer support. If it's my message I don't know how it showed up here on fixya. Sent it also to bushnell support, both said in essence that a demo unit won't work, although i have seen factory demo's being sold on various websites. 1 tech. @ IGolf uploaded to me 2 files EMBEDD01.GLF and SYSREG.SMI which I loaded on th my neo+ after deleting both of the 2 files originally on the unit. But again everthing works, satallite signal strong, courses are loaded but no yardage is shown. It seems to be working when mapping a hole on the course (front, center, and back) but on resume play hole shows no yardage.I believe it's the firmware that is in the demo unit. my ? to iGolf and bushnell was if there was anyway to update the firmware but neither gave me an answer.

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.

Did you download the courses of choice first before you tried to renew after applying the update?

If your membership has been renewed and the SkyCaddie still displays a renewal reminder, your renewal information was not successfully communicated to the SkyCaddie. To finalize the renewal process, please download the courses of your choice to the SkyCaddie from your Favorites list in CaddieSync. The download communicates your new expiration date to the SkyCaddie.

My Pinseeker will turn on but will not give any yardage.


Sounds like the unit needs an alignment. If the crosshairs appear in the display and stay on....it needs a CPU board and reprogramming.
