Cannot get bolt to hold charger cable to shycaddie body

I own a skycaddie SG4 Serial #41339 7003 5462 I have great service from this unit and love it. My problem is the thumb screw that holds the charging cable onto the back of the unit is to short. It only goes into the brass fitting on the back of the unit a few threads deep after the amount of use and the number of time it has been screwed in the brass threads have worn down to where it will not hold the cable in place. there is approximately a 1/4 inch of thread death that can be used but I need a longer screw to do this. At this time I am useing a rubber band to hold the charging cable onto back of unit it works but if the rubberband shift position after i place the unit down to charge it is no longer connected. Can you tell me where I can obtain a longer (screw-bolt) ??

Unscrew existing bolt and take to hardware store to get replacement. The top of the existing bolt will unscrew from the bolt and can be replaced on the new and longer one you get at the hardware store,

I have the same thing, and just dug out the rubber ring where the thumb screw fits tight to the back of the unit. This has helped so far, but best shot is new cable, which I am sure I will have to get also.

Where can I download the skycaddie installation program for my mac?


I've located the download page for the CaddieSync desktop application for your SkyCaddie SG4 GPS. Simply visit this link: http://www.skygolf.com/skygolf/Membership/Owners.aspx and you should find the download. You'll need to select the Mac option and then choose SG4 for the model. Remember: don't connect your device to the computer until after you have the software installed.

I am unable to get the connection cable to attach to the unit. It seems as though the threads are stripped but I can't see where it is damaged either to the pig tail or to the unit. Any Suggestions?


Get 2mm x 14mm screw. Cut old screw shaft off the "knob handle" Grind face of handle and screw head flat, super glue screw to handle. Works great id its the screw threads that are stripped.

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.

Sky caddie will not sync. error reads your SkyCaddie colud not be found.


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.

Make sure your cord is plugged into the SkyCaddie with the cord pointing down towards the battery, not going up. It makes sense and it is easier to plug in with the cord going up, but you will eliminate this error if you plug in the cord with the cord going up.

Turn your power cable/connection cable over. You are connecting it wrong. When connecting it to the back of the SkyCaddie, make sure the cord it going down towards the battery, not up. That will fix your issue.

How long have you had this battery for this device? Is it the same battery you have had in the device since date of purchase? Since I don't know the answer to these questions, if the battery is over 12 months old, you need a replacement, quite possibly, even if it is indicating a full battery. The other side of the coin is if it is NOT the battery, it could unfortunately something has gone wrong internally and you may need to send the device in for repair. Try leaving the device's wall charger plugged in and then power the device on and select start to see if the device will then automatically shut off. If it still shuts off, there is an internal problem with the device. If it does not shut off while the charger is plugged in, but shuts off when the charger is NOT plugged in, sounds like a battery issue.

Sg4 problem


This may sound crazy but I had the cable connected incorrectly (I was getting a message that my Sky Caddie SG4 was unrecognized). When connected the cable correctly (to the back of the SG4) the cable wire should be pointing down.

Thats all it took to fix this issue for me.
