Question about SkyGolf SkyCaddie Handheld GPS Unit

1 Answer

Trying to sync my SkyCaddie SG4. I am told to download an update. However, it will not download but says "the installer requires admin access, try again". However, there is no separate admin account on my laptop, just my account, with a diferent name, but with admin rights. Thus deadlock. What to do? It seems Caddiesync has some unneeded restriction? This also means I cannot download any new courses using an older version of the operating system in the SG4. Frustrating as it costs a lot of money. My UAC is not activated. Please advise on what to do?

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.

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.

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.

Locked on Update screen...will not function at all


Contacted SkyGolf directly and they were very helpful. It was a simple software reset accomplished in two steps:

On the TOOLS pulldown menu, select RELOAD, then select RELOAD LAST APPLICATION, which in my case was the latest firmware update (ver 2.2). They (SkyGolf Tech Support) also accesses your computer remotely via a HS Internet Connection and can do the entire process for you.

It then reset the last update program, which had stalled (causing the lock-up) and then all I had to do was reinstall the latest update, disconnect the Skycaddie and do a GPS RESET outside where it can capture the satellites, then do another SYNC to get it back where it was before the problem began.

I was very thankful that it did not require sending the unit in for repair or replacement.

Additionally, the newest firmware update adds SCORING capabilities to the SG4, which I think is cool.

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.
