From the manufacturer's website it states to make sure that all the prongs in the charging cradle are protruding and match that on the back of the watch. If the watch has been worn quite a bit, make sure all the contact points are clean (suggested by manufacturer you use a q-tip with rubbing alcohol). And attempt to charge again.

Golf Buddy WT5. What are the correct rechargeable batteries?

There seems to be many batteries available in several different capacities from many sources varying wildly in price.

Try an internet search for yourself.

Be aware the watch must be dismantled - the motherboard removed to access the battery. I suggest you ground yourself before proceeding with the utmost caution. If you have any doubt about your ability in this matter it would be better to ask your local phone doctor or similar to do the work for you...

My golfbuddy wt5 no longer locates golf courses. Only appears to continue searching. What do I do?

Try connecting to PC and run chkdsk on those files. If found corrupt, run chkdsk/f using command prompt and "fix" files enough to be recognized by GB3 manager. If you can sync to the manager program, you can reload or update the firmware and all the course information. Once the files are good, it should be able to lock satellites to a course loaded on the WT5.
After all that and it still won't lock-in golf course. Had to save all files (except for Subsys folder) and reformat watch (fast format). Then I copied saved files back onto watch. I then connected to G3 manager and reloaded all course info. (checking all countries and selecting "overwrite". Now it will see courses and fixed my problem.

I have a golf buddy that lose it charge after about 11 holes can I replace the batteries?

I also had the same problem of the battery not lasting a whole round. I found out that if the unit was left for any length of time after it had been fully charged, it would start to discharge even though it was turned off. I now make sure that if I'm playing golf the next day I will put it back on charge overnight.
this has worked successfully for the last 5 months approx
i also looked to find a replacement battery but without success
hope this helps
