    I am playing two great course in the next two days and have spent three hours trying to download, I have changed every security block I can find....the new Sync sucks.

    I can download the new Caddie Synch software and install....but when I try to run I get the same message telling me to check my firewall and server settings. Funny, but I downloaded the software on my wife's computer (we both have HP laptops and same operating system) and it worked there. Now I have to borrow hers to upload courses and to renew my subscription. Running Vista Home Premium (as is she), but it doesn't work on mine, even when I shut off the firewall completely (it isn't the firewall). I have tried it at different places to access the internet (wireless) and no joy (it isn't the server settings!) I really like the Sky Caddie and have used it all over the world playing golf, but this is really frustrating. Any suggestions?

Firewalls don't just present themselves through Windows. Do you have an extending firewall software like Norton, McAfee? If so, you will need to also configure/add the SkyCaddie Desktop program to those. Also, is the internet connection from the computer you are using on a router or nodem? Is it located in a business who has security on the network. If it is the latter, there is little you can do about that. If it is the first, then you will need to reconfigure router settings to allow also for the software. These items are different for every computer so the techs there will not know how to personally reconfigure routers and networks, but they can assist you with Norton, McAfee,etc.

    Sorry this is happening to you, but per your post, "Windows won't recognize the driver", what Windows Operting System are you using? It does make a difference. If it is Windows Vista, be sure it is the 32 bit version only.

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.

NOTE: If your computer is protected by a firewall, it may need to be set up to allow our SkyCaddie software programs to access the web. If your firewall software displays any warning messages during the activation process, simply indicate that you wish to allow access. if the software is not installed the unit will not get activated Activating Your SkyCaddie Within 30 days, please register your SkyCaddie, create a “My SkyCaddie” online account and select a SkyPlayer Club Membership Plan by going to the SkyGolf website at Click the “Getting Started” link for information and instructions to complete the process.

I'm connected to the internet, obviously, i've turned off my firewall, and when i try to search for courses, the message is "cannot search for courses", you are not connected to the internet, or...

Maybe you still have another firewall like windows firewall, mcaffe, norton or zone alarm. You can simply allow the device's IP address on the trusted zone settings of the firewall. You don't need to disable the firewall.
