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.

Is there any way to recalibrate Bushnell Yardage Pro. My unit, about 6 mos old, is now giving me incorrect yardages - off by 40 or 50 yards. Not even close.


for this you will need to send the unit into their repair at 8500 marshall drive lenexa ks 66214 4-6 week turnaround and put your name address and telephone number inside the package. if there is a cost they will send an estimate.

I have the Bushnell yardage pro 450. It has a new battery and will not show yardage or it sometimes flutters the number but you can not read it. Sometimes it will show partial numbers!


I went to another website and read the reviews of other owners of Bushnell products, this is a common problem from Bushnell products. The fix is to buy another or try to get them to replace it, they should recall everyone of them and give refunds or new rangefinders. I found all this out for free, thank you very much!!!

Battery changed but wont give yardage readingThe target square and target lettering is present in view finder


I see this happen to units that are 7+ years old. Sometimes when the battery is allowed to die inside the rangefinder this erases the programming. If the unit is this old its probably been discontinued and no parts are available. They will offer you a newer rangefinder at 30-40% discount. Call them....800.423.3537 and see.

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.
