Perform a soft reset( a forced restart basically ) . hold power and joystick for 8 seconds. it will turn off. now turn on. if boots up correctly, then ok. if not, then perform hard reset.(remember that this will delete any information already installed..) push the information button (i) and flag button at same time. while both buttons are pressed turn on power. you should be in recovery mode. if so, re-sync.

When I turn on my skycaddie at the golf course or at home , I geta message, could not start Application


Are you sure you have registered the device with Skycaddie? If not theedsahe will continue to appear.
I would call them make sure you have all the information they will need on hand (model number, etc).
They are very helpful and can even download the course there and then to your device for you if it is not all ready loaded. Hope this helps.

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.

How do I renew a subscibtuion to Sky caddie?


You need the CaddieSync software installed on a PC.

  • If you have not already done so, you can download the software HERE.
  • Connect your SkyCaddy to the PC.
  • You can renew your membership on the Account Overview page in CaddieSync.
    If your membership has expired:
  • Turn on your SkyCaddie and connect it to your computer.
  • Launch CaddieSync. If No SkyCaddie Synced appears in the lower navigation bar, click the Sync button.
    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.
If your membership has not expired, you can use the same procedure to renew.
When you renew your membership within 90 days of expiration, you retain your current expiration date as your activation anniversary. You do not risk losing your membership by renewing early.

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.

Adding a new course


You must be sure the SkyCaddie is turned on and connected to your computer. You should then launch the SkyCaddie desktop software that you should already have loaded onto your computer. The two should automatically connect and should take you to your golf course listing on the device. From this list, you can add or remove golf courses to your device by either clicking on the ADD button or the REMOVE button on the list, whichever process you want to perform.
