Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

I have a SkyCaddie SG5. It's supposed to display (from top down) yds. to back of green; yds. to pin; yds. to front of green. Mine displays the first and last backwards. Also, I should be getting a display like one pictured on their flyer (Jim Furyk and his caddie, "Fluff"). I'm getting a display that shows a pathway to the green, a message, "Leaves 162" iniside a red square plus two other red squares - one which says "center" and one which says " T shot". My SkyCaddie worked fine a year ago. I renewed it for this year, and something about the renewal process screwed it up. Help, please. I'm a high handicap golfer and not very worldly wise about computers, etc. Thanks. Lorna Fischer ESN: 351731410279

I have had great success with SkyGolf's tech support. I had a similar problem with my SG5 and it turned out it was just a setting I had changed. Sorry that I can't be more specific, I was so happy it was working I forgot what we changed. The also had me apply a firmware update which actually made my SG5 find its satellites faster.

I am not sure how much help they can give if you service is expired but it sure wouldn't hurt to try. I think that you can check their forum for free if you want to start there first.

My sky caddie sg5 won't charge thru the usb or power cord...any ideas???


Hello there,
Since you have tried charging the device using the usb and the power cord. It is quite clear to know that the problem is from the device connection port. It is bad and need to be replaced.
But you need to Try to test the battery in other devices then try to charge it there to see if it will hold a charge. If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge. Then it means the problem is from the battery. It need to be replaced if so.
Then test the charger/ power cord on another device if it is not bad, then you test the usb cable also. After running these test. You will be clear to know if it is the connection port. Then replace the connection port once confirmed to be the problem. Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp

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.

Sky Caddie SG5 will NOT turn on


Hi David
I know this is some time after you posted your question. I had the same problem with mine and was ready to throw it in the bin.
Searced the net and someone had posted that they bumped into a Skygolf rep who suggested lifting the charging flap and blowing into the hole.
I thought he's having a laugh, but guess what it worked.
Good luck if you've not already fixed it.

Installed new battery and still shows low battery after 2 holes and 24 hours of charging


if all cables on battery are clean and tight, then most likely it is the alternator putting out a low charge. test the alternator it should be at least 14 or a little more when running. 12.5 to 13 when off. if alternator is ok, then check all wiring from alternator to battery, and make sure the battery ground is ok!! best of luck carl,
