This is as a result of the firewall blocking your device from connecting to you computer

To solve this you will have to add caddiesync as an exception on your firewall

To do so,do the following


From System Preferences, select Security > Firewall



If your Firewall is set to ON, select "Advanced"

You will see a list of incoming connections you are allowing. Select plus (+) to add Caddie-sync



From the list, select "CaddieSync for Mac"

You should see CaddieSync for Mac in the list of incoming connections. Make sure it says "Accept Incoming Connections" beside that item.

SOURCE: sky caddie will not sync

plug in your connection cable to the back of the skycaddie with the cord going down towards the battery, not up. This should fix the USB recognition issue.

SOURCE: SG4 will not sync. display has UPDATE PROGRAM

Ran into this problem last night. Was trying to update software on Skycaddie. According to computer, everything finished. However, my skycaddie was displaying UPDATE PROGRAM VER 00.13 (B) Ready to Begin. Tried to reload last application as stated in earlier post. PC could not fine skycaddie.

Gave up and called customer service this morning. Only took a few minutes to get a live rep on the phone. He e-mailed me a link to execute that allowed him access to my computer. He tried to reload the last application as well, same result. He then ran an update program via a website, program found my skycaddie and was successfully updated. Whole process took less than five minutes.

I was fearing having to send my unit in for repair.

Hi!
Do you use Windows or Mac as operating system?
Anyway, basically the procedure is almost the same for the both:

# you cannot sync the device because the firewall doesn't let you to do so. So you have to add this SkyCaddie as an EXCEPTION.
1. check the firewall icon in your toolbar
2. double-click on it to open the main window
3. in SETTINGS (or similar name) check ADD EXCEPTION
4. open ADD EXCEPTION and click on a "+" sign or on "ADD..."
5. go in the list of software and pick up your device

You're done!


GOOD LUCK!

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.
