SOURCE: I purchased one of the

Mine is tempermental but I have found a work-around that gets it to sync. I have Windows 7 and that is the primary problem and somewhat of a known issue. Here is the process that works for my uPro: Reboot your computer and delete cache and cookies from your browser application. Browse to uPro website and Log in. Start the uPro. Plug it in after it starts and displays main page. Mine will try to run the "autorun" file from the uPro and will fail because my virus software will block it. That's OK becasue it stops at that point. Now I turn off the virus software. Back at the uPro website I click on "my uPro" then click on "Find uPro". Important step: choose "Run" from web at the find app prompt (do not save and run locally). This process will find my uPro and allow me to perform one action, load or remove courses, then I have to shut it all down and start over to perform any more actions. A pain, yes but untill they fix the software it works in my case. Good luck and Hit Em Straight!

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.

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!

    If your membership has expired:
  • Turn on your SkyCaddie and connect it to your computer.

    To ensure your courses are updated and downloaded to your SkyCaddie, click the COURSES tab at the top of the CaddieSync screen and select Favorites. You can manage your courses on this page or download courses to update your SkyCaddie.
  • Click the ACCOUNT tab in the upper navigation bar.
  • Login with your username and password. If you do not recall your password, click Forgot your username or password?.
  • On the Account Overview page, click link the Renew link under Actions at the lower right of the CaddieSync window.

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.
